Step, sisters

If you saw the last pair of glass slippers reviewed here and thought “Nice, but they’re not exactly Louboutins, you know,” you’re going to have to think up a new excuse:

Glass slippers by Christian LouboutinFairy tales do come true for fashionistas: Cinderella’s glass slipper is one of film’s most iconic images.

Now Walt Disney Studios — the filmmaker behind the 1950 animated classic — and A-list designer Christian Louboutin have debuted a modern-day stiletto inspired by Cinderella’s famous footwear. It’s all part of a campaign to kick off Disney’s global release of the Cinderella: Diamond Edition on Blu-ray this fall. The design features two sparkling butterflies, crystal covered heels and Louboutin’s signature red soles.

I suppose it’s too much to hope that they’ll put Fats Waller on the disc’s Extras menu.

    A bit showy for my tastes, but lovely.
