The fashion world’s love affair with fairy tales continues withChristian Louboutin designing a pair of shoes inspired by Disney’s Cinderella.

If you’ve given up on an actual pumpkin coach and a real Prince Charming, glass slippers can still be a part of your fairy tale – thanks to designer Christian Louboutin.

The animated picture is being rereleased this  fall, and in honor of this the French shoe guru will offer aninterpretation of the iconic “glass slipper” worn by the movie’s namesake.

The Louboutin glass slipper is being released in conjunction with Disney’s Diamond Edition of “Cinderella” this fall, a combo-pack which includes two Blu-Ray discs and a DVD with bonus features, celebrating the beloved classic animated feature, first released in 1950.

“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,” the designer told Women’s Wear Daily on April 26

The shoes will include the Louboutin signature red soles, seen on Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham, and many more celebrities.

Fashionistas will have to wait until the summertime to see the shoe, although it is said the creator, famous for his red-soled talons, will put his own “magic touch” on the famous footwear.

This won’t be the first time the Brothers Grimm fairytale shoe has provides a source of inspiration.

Maison Martin Margiela created its own interpretation of the iconic glass slippers a few years back for a limited edition range. Disney Bridal offers princess-inspired gowns and Mouawad launched a Disney engagement ring line in 2009.

Fairy tales were also the theme for the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012 collection, which was described as “spring-like and magical” by creative director Marc Jacobs.

Meanwhile, Snow White also looks set to be a major source for fashion trends this year thanks to the release of a new Hollywood interpretation of the tale, Snow White and the Huntsman. The film has already inspired a Benefit Cosmetics beauty kit allowing fans to recreate protagonist Kristen Stewart’s pale beauty, and Charlize Theron’s Evil Queen character boasts an extensive haute couture wardrobe. 

Although the price of the slippers hasn’t been released, a pair of Louboutin shoes starts at about $600 and can cost up to several thousand dollars.

If you’re hoping to snag the slippers, check the Cinderella Facebook page for images and updates on the shoe.
