Today we heard news of a match made in girlie heaven: Christian Louboutin has been commissioned by Disney to design his imagining of the fictional glass slipper in honour of the re-release of Cinderella in flawless Blu Ray HD. Monsieur Louboutin rose to the challenge as only he could, creating an enchanting lace and crystal shoe with a butterfly corsage and – of course – bright red soles.
The shoes, which you can see close-up in this photo from the Telegraph really are the stuff of shoe dreams; their fantastical design helping the legend of Cinderella sparkle into life. Speaking of his design, Louboutin said: “Speaking about the collaboration, he said: “Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to grace and fairytale love, but also shoes. The dream is a major factor in my language of design.”
The Cinderella Blu Ray will be available to buy in the UK from 27th August 2012.
