Earlier this year it was revealed that the king of stiletto’s would be creating an interpretation of Cinderella’s glass slippers, to coincide with the release of the “Diamond Edition” of the classic Disney cartoon on BluRay. Now we’re getting our first look at the shoes!
According to WWD, who got a sneak peek in Paris, “Opting out of using solid glass — they would never have survived Parisian cobblestones, not to mention the blister nightmare — he evoked lightness using white lace and sparkling crystals. Perched on a red cushion, and protected by a castle-like structure, the delicate, mini-platform lace heels adorned with Swarovski crystals were shown alongside stills and sketches from the making of the 1950 animated film.”
Louboutin told Vogue UK, “Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes. Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale.”
There will be just 20 pairs released, with lucky “Cinderella” recipients winning them around the world (details on the giveaway will be released later this summer).
What do you think of the shoes? Do they live up to Cinderella herself?
