Cinderella's glass slipper reimagined by Jimmy Choo

To celebrate the release of Disney's live-action Cinderella next month, some of the biggest names in shoe design have reimagined the princess' iconic glass slipper – Jimmy Choo, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia, Stuart Weitzman, Salvatore Ferragamo and Paul Andrew to name a few. The results are as magical as you would expect and will be available to order soon from key stores around the world, including Harrods and Saks Fifth Avenue. I assume the price tags will also be fit for a princess, but if you have a fairy godmother then it's time to start calling in the favours....

"I think every girl desires a Cinderella moment in their lives," says Sandra Choi, creative director of Jimmy Choo. "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."

The stunning design from Jimmy Choo has achieved exactly that, with a timeless shape and plenty of sparkle. You can see a few more of my favourite sketches below. I think Cinderella would have a tough time picking a winner...
