Christian Louboutin Unveils The Cinderella Shoe

As young girls we all wanted to have that Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo Cinderella moment. Well, thanks to Christian Louboutin, that dream could very well come true.

Yesterday I was invited to the unveiling of the modern-day version of Cinderella’s iconic glass slippers in collaboration with Disney (prior to the Cinderella Blu-Ray release on October 2).

The butterfly-accented lace heels with Swarovski crystal embellishment and the designer’s signature sole is even more stunning in reality.

In the spirit of the fairy tale, one lucky US fan will have the chance to win a free pair of the limited edition Cinderella heels. Details to follow.

Like the Christian Louboutin ‘Marie Antoinette’ heels, only 20 pairs of the Cinderella heels will be produced with one pair most definitely going to Dita von Teese and the butterfly loving Mariah Carey.

“The slipper is the magic wand of transformation which conjures confidence, beauty and love.” – Christian Louboutin

    I see I’m not the only one who hates them. The embelleshments are tacky, but the shape/cut of the uppers are downright ugly, whatever materials or embelleshment you might use to execute the design.

    I don’t like them. Maybe it’s just me, but I honestly don’t think of Cinderella when I see these.

    I think they would look much less tacky if they didn’t have the large butterfly over the peep toe.

    so tacky!

    I would love to win this shoe. FC, spill the details on how to win LOL 😀

    The shoe is stunning.

      It hasn’t been released yet, but I will let you know when I know

    I would cut of my pinky toe for these shoes. LOVE them.

    I always thought Bridget’s Back and Very Mix in silver were his answer to the Cinderella shoe…. these are cutesy for a fairytale…. but they are conservative for my taste even wit’ the butterflies….

    Wow. How is this remotely Cinderella-like? I’m pretty sure butterflies had absolutely nothing to do with the fairytale. Fail.

    I find these really ugly and would probably never wear them.

  10. Beta July 5, 2012 at 17:04 #

    yes, this screams Mariah Carey 😀

    other than that I find them rather ugly :S

    • Alina July 5, 2012 at 18:10 #

      lol 🙂 Mariah Carey was my first thought too.

  11. robbie July 5, 2012 at 15:57 #

    those are seriously ugly. i dont quite get the butterflies, they make the shoe look more “glinda” than “cinderella”

  12. rita July 5, 2012 at 15:05 #

    I think it’s ugly but then again I prefer Italian shoe designers! Louboutin is so overrated to me 🙁

    • Beta July 5, 2012 at 17:05 #

      PLUS ONE
      those tacky platforms must disappear

  13. Yeliz July 5, 2012 at 14:56 #

    I wouldn’t wear these shoes to be honest, but they really look lovely and exactly like Cinderella shoes.

  14. EmmaWoodhouse July 5, 2012 at 14:48 #

    I think I will wear these shoes in heaven 🙂

  15. abasss July 5, 2012 at 14:39 #

    my god it is ugly

    • Valeria July 6, 2012 at 07:33 #

      Agree. Ugly, tacky and tasteless

    • TL July 6, 2012 at 10:01 #

      Don’t like it, tacky!

  16. Ancika July 5, 2012 at 14:25 #

    It remained unclear to me was it or was it not made of glass.

    • Fashion Critic July 5, 2012 at 16:03 #

      made of lace

  17. Dressaddict July 5, 2012 at 12:23 #

    Is it me or all these new CL shoes seem to look gaudy and kitschy?

    • Valeria July 6, 2012 at 07:34 #

      They are. Tacky tacky tacky

  18. Rash July 5, 2012 at 11:50 #

    Hahaha I seriously wanna step in Dita’s or Maria’s shoes… whenever it is Cindrella’s shoes 😉

  19. CreoleLady July 5, 2012 at 11:07 #

    Oh, so sweet and princess-y. Exactly what Cinderella’s glass slipper should look like. I’d display them, never to be worn, lol.

    • Vicky July 5, 2012 at 15:22 #

      Haha, I was thinking the same thing! I was like, “I’d just get a display case and never wear them.”
