Cinderella gets to wear Louboutin’s famous red sole

Posted July 6, 2012 by Astrid in Moda

Shoe lovers never get tired of looking at the amazing work of shoe designer Christian Louboutin. His shoes have been used by top Hollywood celebrities… Some of them love Louboutin designs so much that even have more than 200 pair of them.

Now, the most popular princess in Disney has her own Christian Louboutin slipper. I am pretty sure this time Cinderella would not leave the CL slipper behind for the prince.

Last week during Haute Couture week in Paris, Louboutin unveiled the ultimate, modern-day Cinderella inspired slipper. A slipper that princesses would die for.

“Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes,” explains designer Christian Louboutin.

For Louboutin, the worlds of fantasy and shoe-making collided in perfect harmony when he was invited by Disney to re-imagine Cinderella’s famous slipper in honor of Disney’s global release of the classic masterpiece “Cinderella” Diamond Edition on Blu-ray™ this Fall.

Cinderella’s legendary slippers have been re-imagined with the mastery of one of this generation’s most important designers.

Lightness, beauty and transparency are the words with which Louboutin describes this special pair; they are a dream materialized.

The designer’s magic touch brings this iconic shoe to reality and gives it a modern twist.  Delicate lace adorned with crystals gives these slippers an enchanting look.  Two sparkling butterflies rest prettily on the shoes, one landing on the vamp while the other sits closely behind atop of the crystal covered heel, gently brushing the ankle. Louboutin’s signature red soles add the final dash of excitement as Cinderella’s slippers come alive.

“Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale,” explained the designer.

“The slipper is the magic wand of transformation

                                     which conjures confidence, beauty and love.” – Christian Louboutin

 Christian Louboutin’s famous red soles are instantly recognizable for their elegance, innovative, playful designs and femininity.

“The dream is a major factor in my language of design,” said Louboutin.

This whimsical quality is paramount to his creations, which have been embraced by women all over the world.  Louboutin’s limitless imagination, adventurous spirit and the inspiration he draws from the world and people around him have helped turn his own dreams into reality.

For Louboutin, “there are no limits in the world of fantasy and there is always a happily ever after.”
