Christian Louboutin unveils his Cinderella Shoes
When it comes to designing an iconic shoe you need an iconic designer right? Well luckily Disney knew who to call - to celebrate Cinderella being released on Disney Blu Ray for the first time the studio has teamed up with Louboutin to recreate Cinderella’s glass slippers. Complete with trademark red sole these shoes are dainty, delicate and most definitely fit for a princess. The shoes are adorned with glittering butterflies – covered in Swarovski crystals – and are made of lace to really give that ‘glass slipper’ look. Cinderella is currently the only Disney princess to have her own shoes made by the designer but we certainly hope she won’t be the last.
