Christian Louboutin’s Cinderella Slipper
The most iconic accessory in fairytale history is now in the form of a red-soled Christian Louboutin. Thanks to a little Disney magic and Louboutin collaboration, this limited-edition Cinderella shoe was revealed on Wednesday night at the Palasi Brongniart in Paris, during Couture Fashion Week.
It was crafted to be imagined as glass, and is made mostly transparent with white lace details, Swarovski crystals, and sparkling accent butterflies.
Although Louboutin’s slipper will not be mass produced, the designer has announce that 20 pairs will be given away worldwide this fall. Making Louboutin the fairy godmother of a few lucky modern-day Cinderellas, if you ask me. Disney and Louboutin are scheduled to release details on the giveaway August 17!
Disney’s Diamond Edition release of Cinderella on Blu-ray and DVD in October of this year was coordinated with the special shoe unveiling and will also feature Christian Louboutin himself in a classic Disney 10-minute short. In the spirit of his own personal Disney favorite, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, it is called The Magic of the Glass Slipper: A Cinderella Story and will appear as a bonus feature on the new re-release of Cinderella.
