Cinderella’s classic slipper gets a makeover by Christian Louboutin to celebrate the Diamond Edition release of the Disney classic on October 2. “It’s a very classic fairy tale about love,” Louboutin says, “and the dream that love is absolutely pure.” Though Louboutin’s slipper will not be produced for mass sale, 20 pairs will be given away worldwide this fall, turning “anyone into modern-day Cinderellas,” Louboutin says.
Louboutin unveiled Cinderella’s new accessory at a soiree Wednesday night at the Palais Brongniart in Paris, during Couture Fashion Week. Guests at the elite event included fashion editors from around the world.
Lori MacPherson, executive vice president of global product management at Disney, calls the shoe “possibly the most iconic shoe in literature” and says the Louboutin collaboration is a “fitting tribute.”
