A fairytale romance for Christian Louboutin and Cinderella
Christian Louboutin creates glass slippers worthy of a Disney Princess. Louboutin said, “Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and word of this tale.”
The French designer was invited to create a slipper in honor of Disney’s re-release of the classic story on DVD and Blu-ray this autumn. He adds, “The dream is a major factor in my language of design.” For the Parisian that means turning make-believe into reality with a slipper crafted from delicate lace, sparkling butterflies, crystals and of course, his iconic sensual red sole.
Best of all, unlike the fairy tale this slipper will not just fit the delicate foot of Cinderella but twenty lucky competition winners. If you believe Louboutin, who says “The slipper is the magic wand of transformation which conjures confidence, beauty and love,” then you too could have your very own fairytale, happy ending.
