Christian Louboutin with the Cinderella slipper

Christian Louboutin redesigns ‘Cinderella’ slippers


We don’t usually go in for all that pretty, flowery stuff, but there are no less than two notable reasons to talk about today. With Haute Couture week in full force in Paris, France this week, shoe designer Christian Louboutin has recreated Cinderella’s slippers as part of the lead-up to launching Cinderella Diamond Edition on Blu-ray October 2.

“Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes,” Louboutin was quoted as saying. He went on to add, “The slipper is the magic wand of transformation which conjures confidence, beauty and love.”

“Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale,” explained the designer.

Here’s the description of the shoes from Disney, and check out the gallery of photos below.

Delicate lace adorned with crystals gives these slippers an enchanting look. Two sparkling butterflies rest prettily on the shoes, one landing on the vamp while the other sits closely behind atop of the crystal covered heel, gently brushing the ankle. Louboutin’s signature red soles add the final dash of excitement as Cinderella’s slippers come alive.
