The Red Bottomed Fairytale Shoes

Disney is set to re release the classic 1950’s fairytale ‘Cinderella’ and with this release there has been much Disney hype amongst top designers, who are giving the princesses a couture make over. Disney asked Christian Louboutin to recreate the iconic Cinderella glass slipper in conjunction with the release of the movie. The beautiful shoe was unveiled at Paris Fashion Week and only 20 pairs were made making them a limited edition collector’s item. 

"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."

The shoes will be given away to 20 lucky recipients around the world and will be accompanied by the short film 'The Magic of the Glass Slipper: A Cinderella Story'. A 10-minute movie showing the manufacture of shoes by Christian Louboutin. He plays a romantic, pensive cobbler in a short Disney clip about the making of the shoe. Louboutin will announce more information on the shoe giveaway Aug. 17

The 5 inch peep toes are definitely not made of glass for our modern day fairytale, although the white lace shoe adorned with beautiful Swarovski crystals leaves them virtually see through. The butterfly appliqués make the shoes come alive with the transformation of Cinderella. Of course Louboutin kept his trade mark red soles, for what would a princess be wearing these days other than Louboutin.

This Disney reawakening doesn’t end here. Harrods is rumoured to be paying homage to all the iconic Disney princesses in their window display this Christmas. Top designers, like Valentino, Ellie Saab, Versace and Oscar del a Renta, will recreate couture versions of the Disney dresses to grace their window this Christmas. The fairytale continues as Harrods will also dedicate its 4th floor to put on Disney themed events, with pop up boutiques and limited edition pieces. We can’t wait! If you are in London over Christmas be sure to check this out!
