Fashion: Cinderellas Glass Slipper Come To Life

Cinderellas Glass Slipper Gets A Modern Make-Over
One of the worlds most loved fairy tales and Disney animations comes to life this Spring and numerous footwear designers have created they're own version of the infamous glass slipper. 
Cinderella hits the silver screen March 27th and in honor of one of the most fantastical stories ever told nine famous fashion designers from all across the globe have created some magically glorious glass slippers of their very own.

Rene Caovilla used the most colour in this perspex and turquoise design with a perfect point and some glittering embellishment. It sure is a quirky take on the Cinderella heel and I think they are my favourite.
Alexandre Birman's sleek white is the most simple of all the slippers and is sure to catch the eye of many brides-to-be as it is possibly more suited to the final wedding scene.
You could recognize a Charlotte Olympia design in a room full of shoes, the most modern out of the nine with a perspex platform, tiny peep toes and small glittering star details and Swarvoski crystals which are sure to catch the light

Salvatore Ferragamo keeps things chic whilst giving a Gothic tone to the Cinderella story with these black toed stilettos that also feature a perspex covering and an embellished heel.
Worn by the Cinderella herself, Lily James, these dramatic Jimmy Choos are one of my favourites. Arguably most like the original glass slipper, this sparkling heel with its over-sized crsytal feature is a stunning recreation.
Nicholas Kirkwood also favoured glitter and perspex but with that added Nicholas Kirkwood quirk; lace, crystals and a bow all add up to a ultra modern and cool yet wonderfully pretty slipper

Jerome Rousseau was the only designer to pick an ankle-strap sandal design and in a shade of midnight blue colour as well. Also one of the far more simpler creations a thick perspex strap with circular gold details placed delicately across the front are the only sign of glitz.
Paul Andrew designed my second favourite, I love the splash of iridescent blue jewels and the sprinkle of glitter on the back. This may not be as Cinderella and fairy tale-esque as Choos, Kirkwood or even Caovilla but it offers enough of a modern princess look for me.
Stuart Weitzman selected booties as his shoe style to work with, a white heel and an ombre glittering pattern from ankle to toe offers an almost rock chick vibe.
So who designs your ultimate Cinderella slipper?
All of the shoes will be showcased and avaliable to order from Harrods come March 3rd.
