Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’d know that there is a new Cinderella movie coming out on Friday. And here is a confession for you: I am totally excited. The truth is, at some point, almost every girl fancies herself as some sort of Disney princess (or real life princess). Maybe it is because they share the same hair colour, or love a certain song or just want “that” dress, but whatever the reason, it seems to just happen.
So lets stop and step back and think about the author of this post for a moment. Blonde. Pulls off the colour blue very well-infact has more blue dresses than necessary. Not opposed to riding in magic carriages and is a shoe fanatic. Also doesn’t mind doing extra laundry and also tries to talk to animals whether they understand her or not. Yeah. Truth, I kind of love Cinderella. I kind of am Cinderella? Only replace the evil step-mother with very loving regular parents, and add skepticism in allowing a stranger appear out of nowhere and using magic to turn my stuff into something Royal Ball appropriate (my stuff is always Royal ball appropriate).
*Note: I came to these conclusions after finally realising one day that I can’t sport bright red hair forever and will never be able to grow a pair of flippers*
So, with the release of this new Cinderella movie on Friday, my first question naturally was “who designed the shoes for her costume?” To my delight I found out. Christian Louboutin. I had a hunch about it from the moment I heard about the movie. Now, if you have been reading my blog for quite a while, you might remember this post from 2012 about Christian Louboutin releasing limited edition “glass slippers”. If you haven’t, I strongly recommend you check it out, I have all the details about the shoe itself in it.
Actress Lily James has been appearing at numerous premiers for the movie in beautiful gowns and sporting our favourite glass slippers. The movie itself has sparked many fashion opportunities for designers, bloggers, models and other various players in the fashion industry. Canadian model Coco Rocha recently released (along with reality actress turned blogger Lauren Conrad) a slew of pieces of clothing inspired by the film. Shoe designer Stuart Weitzman, among others, has reinterpreted the glass slipper. It has been so much fun to follow the snowball of creativity in design following such a film. Now lets hope that the film is actually as good as the shoes are.
Ps- What Disney character do you most strongly identify yourself with?
