If anyone could make Cinderella’s glass slipper even more coveted it’s swank shoe designer Christian Louboutin. And consider it a fait accompli since the designer unveiled his interpretation of the fairy tale shoe on Thursday (July 5).
Louboutin’s take features see-through shoes covered in crystals and butterfly embellishments and, of course, Louboutin’s signature red soles.
“The slipper is the magic wand of transformation, which conjures confidence, beauty and love,” Louboutin tells Vogue UK. “The dream is a major factor in my language of design. There are no limits in the world of fantasy and there is always a happily ever after.”
“Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes,” he continues. “Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale.”
The designer worked with Disney to redesign the shoe ahead of the fall re-release of “Cinderella” on DVD and Blu-ray.
