Two of our favorite things have come together!
When Disney decided to have a Cinderella heel to go with the release of Cinderella’s Diamond Edition on Blu-ray, they knew the man for the job!
Christian Louboutin was charged with designing the heels. He chose not to go with glass, instead opting to use white lace and Swarovski crystals on the nearly five inch high princess shoes.
The master cobbler unveiled them July 4th in Paris on a perfect red cushion, surrounded by stills and sketches from the original film. He said:
“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’s also a short, six-minute film about the shoes in which Louboutin, a shoemaker in the film, must quickly finish Cinderella’s shoes. Some friendly woodland creatures try to help inspire him, but he ultimately finds his muse in a modern version of Cinderella: a girl working hard and dreaming about the finer things in life.
We can’t wait to see these princess pumps pop up on the red carpet!
