News: Christian Louboutin to Design Modern Glass Slipper

From Christian Louboutin to Design Modern Glass Slipper for 'Cinderella' Diamond Edition DVD:

Christian Louboutin, the famous shoe designer known for his trademark red soles, has accepted the daunting but enviable task of creating a pair of dream-come-true modern high heels for the iconic footwear fairy tale character, Cinderella.

Louboutin was invited by Disney Studios to bring Cinderella's glass footwear up-to-date for the release of their Blu-ray Diamond Edition of the studio’s animated fairy tale Cinderella.


“Isn’t it everyone’s dream, to once in your life part of a fairy tale?,” enthuses Louboutin. “Walt Disney Studios gave me a wonderful opportunity to live this magical moment. I have been so lucky to have crossed paths with Cinderella, an icon who is so emblematic to the shoe world as well as the dream world.”

The real question is how will he manage his signature red soles with a "glass" slipper? Hmmm....

I posted almost three years ago about the Maison Martin Margiela Glass Slippers if you are also interested in those...
