Paul Andrew took his imagination to a whole new level with his take on the infamous shoe. The designer used transparent PVC to create a glassy effect. “Cinderella's glass slipper represents every woman's dream shoe," he said. "The story, being a classic, inspired me to use my iconic pointed toe silhouette, which I embellished with an array of hand encrusted Swarovski crystals to create the ultimate fantasy shoe."

 

2. Alexandre Birman

Alexandre Birman re-invented Cinderella’s slipper with a romantic twist on the classic Johanna pump. The designer created a fashionable satin and Swarovski crystal encrusted pointed heels. “My vision of the glass slipper was inspired by the timeless and feminine beauty that I believe Cinderella and the Alexandre Birman brand both share," he said.

 

3. René Caovilla

Rene Caovilla incorporated the iconic blue color from la princesa's dress. The designer believes that shoes are works of arts that grant wishes. “Passion and never ending research don’t draw the line at fantasy and creativity," he said. "This is how dreams come true in our fairy tale.”

Sandra Choi, Creative Director of Jimmy Choo, believes every girl should experience a Cinderella moment, so she encrusted the slipper with hundreds of rhinestones and crystals. “I wanted to create a shoe that felt magical, with alluring sparkle and a feminine, timeless silhouette evoking those childhood emotions," Choi revealed.
