Check out Christian Louboutin’s Cinderella-themed stiletto’s!

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?

Would you pay $895 for Louboutin’s Trash Bag purse?

Christian Louboutin just created a “trash” bag purse! Louboutin has been making “trash” shoes for ages, but how does it translate into a purse?

More from the Purse Blog (love that site):

Louboutin’s company is known for its cheeky take on luxury goods, so I can see why it would want to translate the success of the Trash shoes to a Trash bag. The problem with this execution, though, is that even though the bag is relatively petite, the trash material is just one big, square piece. There’s nothing to break it up, so all you see is bits of string, what might be a shoelace, some gold foil and a torn piece of an envelope. Perhaps the material would work better as a trim so that it would be more difficult to identify its contents.

The scalloped leather edges, shiny gold chain and leopard haircalf strap also don’t do the design any favors. I’ve long been a fan of the idea that too much is never enough, particularly when it comes to accessories, but this bag is just too muchBuy through Neiman Marcus for $895.

What do you think? Cute or meh?

Guess who Tweeted this “shoe porn” picture on her Twitter?

This singer has a shoe fetish – and posts her favorite shoes on Twitter! She Tweeted this picture along with “Yes, finally #shoeoftheday Louboutins”.

She considers the addiction to be ‘shoe porn’! Funny! By the looks of those awesome studded Louboutin’s she’s wearing above, I can see why she feels that way! They are hot! From what I’ve read – those bad boys will set you back a cool $1,900!
