About The Louboutin Inspired Shoe:
Earlier this year, Disney worked with world-renowned shoe designer Christian Louboutin to re-create the iconic Cinderella slipper by updating it for the modern woman. On July 5, during Haute Couture in Paris, France—Louboutin’s Cinderella-inspired shoe was revealed. The shoe is made from delicate lace adorned with crystals that give the iconic shoe an enchanting look. Two sparklingbutterflies rest prettily on the design, one landing on the vamp while the other sits closely behind the crystal covered heel, gently brushing the ankle. The elegant design is completed with the globally recognized trademark – Christian Louboutin red sole.
Everyone orders Cinderella around: her cruel stepmother, her awful stepsisters—even the big clock in the church tower tells her when to startanother day of drudgery. But they can’t stop her from dreaming, and Cinderella has faith that someday her wishes will come true. When an invitation to theroyal ball arrives, Cinderella is sure her time has come—until her stepsisters, with the encouragement of Lady Tremaine, tear her gown to shreds. Just when Cinderella believes all is lost, her Fairy Godmother appears, and with a wave of her wand and “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,” transforms an ordinary pumpkin into a magnificent coach and Cinderella’s rags into a gorgeous gown, then sends her off to the royal ball. But Cinderella’s enchanted evening must end when the spell is broken at midnight. It will take the help of her daring mice friends and a perfect fit into a glass slipper to create the ultimate fairy tale ending.
