Finally revealed during Haute Couture Paris fashion week this week, Louboutin’s Cinderella heels perfectly encapsulate the beauty and fantasy of Walt Disney’s legendary film. Featuring delicate white lace uppers embellished with twinkling crystals and two sparkling butterflies, Louboutin’s Cinderella slippers are imbued with just the right amount of Disney magic.

“Her character and her story dictated the design to me,” explained Louboutin in a release. “It was all there in the pages and the words of this tale. The slipper is the magic wand of transformation which conjures confidence, beauty and love.”
