Christian Louboutin with his Cinderella shoe design
We were slightly comforted to hear that the man behind those red soles, Christian Louboutin is a fellow fan of Disney films. Oh good, it’s not just us then! Yep, today we've discovered that Mr. Louboutin will be getting involved in the re-release of 'Cinderella' on Blu-Ray this Autumn by designing his very own glass slipper! Speaking to industry magazine Womens Wear Daily the designer said, “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.”
Naturally this has sent us into a spin here. Will he be glass-blowing red soles onto the glass slipper? And could one actually walk in such a creation? We wouldn’t choose such a painful pump for dashing around fashion weeks, sure, but we sure would like to see it displayed on a red cushion. Will the iconic Pigalle translate into glass?! We can’t wait to see it!Marc Jacobs' pumps sold at La Garconne for $595
Marc Jacobs has also dabbled in a little fairytale fantasy with his fabulous transparent pumps [above]. Tres glass slipper-esque non? Yes yes we know they're PVC but they're as close to Cinderella footwear as we're able to get our greedy paws on.

In fact, since the most famous fairy-tale wedding of our time, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge’s royal wedding last summer, we’ve got the green light to embrace our love of all things romantic! We were also quite thrilled to stumble across the new Disney collaboration from American bridal designer Alfred Angelo. The label has produced a range of Disney inspired wedding dresses each corresponding to our favourite fairytales, and this Cinderella one [below] would be quite the perfect match for the new Louboutin slipper...Alfred Angelo's Cinderella dress
