Fairy tale-inspired heels for the modern day princesses
No matter if you are Cinderella, Belle, Ariel or Jasmine, there is always a perfect pair of designer shoes that fits the Disney princess in you.
Ever since we were young, we have, at least, encountered one Disney princess and fell in love with her. She (whichever she is) is a role model for many young girls – whether it's the enchanting Jasmine, the intelligent Belle or the kind Cinderella.
In anticipation of the coming Cinderella live action film on 12th March 2015, Saks Fifth Avenue has announced a new collaboration with five shoe designers, following in the footsteps of Christian Louboutin for Maleficent, to reinterpret the famed glass shoe of Cinderella, launching in-store on 13th March 2015.
These five designers including Stuart Weitzman, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia, Jimmy Choo and Rene Caovilla have each created a beautiful rendition of the shoes to make you feel like the modern day Cinderella.
(All five creations will be on display at Saks Fifth Avenue’s 10022-SHOE salons in New York City and Beverly Hills. Special order your own pair at IfTheShoeFits@saks.com.)
