Glass Slippers

If you’re a Cinderella fan, then the following news is sure to excite you.  In anticipation of the upcoming live-action Cinderella film release mid-March, top designers have designed their intrepretation of of Cinderella’s glass slipper.

“I think every girl desires a Cinderella moment in their lives. This story ignites a love affair and fascination with shoes that never dies. The power they have to transform is instilled from a young age and the fantasy remains alive forever. I wanted to create a shoe that felt magical, with alluring sparkle and a feminine, timeless silhouette evoking those childhood emotions.” –Sandra Choi, creative director for Jimmy Choo

Few likely will be able to purchase these shoes due to their exorbitant price tags.  But if you happen to reside near Berlin or New York, these sparkling beauties will be on display at the Berlin Film Festival, or at Saks Fifth Avenue’s NYC flagship store in early March!
