Cinderella was by far our favorite fairytale growing up. From her shimmering blue ball gown to her fashion-forward glass slipper, it's hard to deny that the sweet Cinderella had style.
Which is why it made perfect sense to us that Christian Louboutin
, one of the most magical real-life shoe designers, updated the princess' iconic glass slipper in honor of the Cinderella
Diamond Edition release on Blu-ray this fall.
The princess pumps were on display yesterday in Paris, alongside sketches and stills from the famous film and a short clip of Louboutin himself as a cobbler, explaining how he assembled the white lace and Swarovski-crystal-butterfly-embellished heel in a time crunch (because of the ball, of course).
"Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes," Louboutin told WWD
. "Her character and her story dictated the design to me, it was all there in the pages and the words of this tale."
Now, if only we had a Fairy Godmother...
