Cinderella (Three-Disc Diamond Edition: Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy) will be released on October 2, 2012 and part of the pre-promotion is the announcement and release of a specially designed Cinderella slipper by Christian Louboutin inspired by the Disney version, of course. Here are various images from around the net--credits were elusive--and some excerpts of articles. So what do you think about the shoes?
From Access Hollywood:
None other than famed designer Christian Louboutin has teamed up with The Walt Disney Studios to create a “Cinderella” slipper. Aren’t they gorgeous!?????
“The inspiration behind the shoe of Cinderella, is coming from Cinderella herself,” says Louboutin. “If you’re designing shoes, definitely, Cinderella is one of the biggest icons, if you think about it. You have few people who are so linked to shoes.”
So true, and Cinderella is one very, very special gal to have her own pair of custom designed Louboutins! Only 20 pairs of the priceless shoes were created.
The shoes - which of course include Louboutin's trademark red soles - are constructed of delicate crystal-adorned lace with two sparkling butterflies resting on the shoes, one landing on the vamp while the other sits closely behind atop of the crystal covered heel, gently brushing the ankle.
