Designer To Create Version Of Glass Slipper.
In what's probably going to be our favorite designer collaboration of the season, Christian Louboutin will be putting his own touch on Cinderella's glass slippers this summer.
Women's Wear Daily reports that the shoe designer will be crafting his own pair of magical shoes in honor of Walt Disney’s rerelease of “Cinderella” on DVD this fall.
If you've never seen Disney's "Cinderella," first of all: WHAT? But anyway, in the 1950 movie, the heroine lives with her evil stepsisters and is forced to do the housework while they go out and party, until a Fairy Godmother grants her a carriage, a ball gown and the famous "glass slippers" and sends her to Prince Charming's ball, where the prince falls in love with her even though he has to do some major shoe sleuthing to eventually find her.
The magical heels will formally be revealed this summer.
Disney has had some fashion pair-ups in the past, mostly in the bridal department. The Disney Alfred Angelo wedding dresses let you marry your own Prince Charming in a gown inspired by one of Disney's princesses. There's also a line of Disney princess engagement rings.
And soon, brides and shoe-lovers everywhere will be able to slip into their own pair of glass slippers.
