Now, his fairytale became true, his limited edition Glass Slipper in honor of Disney’s Cinderella Diamond Edition has saw the daylight in Paris on July 4th!
There’s no glass in this modern-day version of the shoe, but this magical shoes which are in fact a little flowery and very ornate, reflect Louboutin’s classic style with his signature red soles. To evoke lightness, he used white lace, Swarovski crystals and two delicate, shimmering butterfly for decorating this princess-worthy sky-high 120mm heel.
“Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairy-tale love, but also shoes”, Louboutin said. “Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale.”
