From ‘Cinderella’ Carriages to Couture Fairytale Footwe

The classic fairytale of the sweet Cinderella has been a part of cultures for centuries, yet these Cinderella designs show how the story is still applicable today. The depictions are a mixture of accuracy and subversions of the Disney Princess ranging from fairytale fashionista spreads to Cinderella cinema stories.

Despite the fact Cinderella’s name was derived from her cinder-covered clothing, with a little help from a fashion-forward fairy godmother, the girl becomes a fashionista whose style is continually echoed every year, especially in the shoe department. Mimicked by top French designer Christian Louboutin who created couture fairytale footwear, these real life Cinderella shoes are a dream come true. Boys no longer need to be jealous of the fancy footwear, as artist Eduardo Rodriguez developed the concept of male fairytale shoes in the ‘Cinderello’ glass sneaker.

Cinderella has influenced society beyond fashion. The love story in Cinderella has further developed the need to create extravagant fairytale weddings as brides incorporate Cinderella carriages into their nuptials in order to lead them to their princes. As for those who are still single and hoping to find their prince or princess, there are Cinderella-like love services that pair up men and women based on footwear preferences. If there is one thing these Cinderella finds have taught us, it's that there is nothing better than finding the perfect fit.
