Christian Louboutin to Design Cinderella-Worthy Glass Slippers

Here's a tidbit of news that's pretty bibbidi-bobbidi-cool: in honor of Disney's upcoming fall re-release of Cinderella on Blu-ray and DVD, footwear maestro Christian Louboutin is designing a glass slipper fit for the fairytale's titular princess. "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," Louboutin told WWD.

While he's mastered the art of the sky-high platform and the dangerously-sharp stiletto, the designer might have his work cut out for him with this particular project. After all, though lovely in theory, a shoe made of glass would be—let's face it—unwearable. We're guessing Monsieur Louboutin's tribute to Cinderella won't be made for walking, but we still can't wait to see the finished product, which will be revealed this summer.
