See Cinderella's Real Designer Glass Slippers

by Melanie Richtman

Cinderella stars Lily James and Richard Madden made an appearance at the Saks Fifth Avenue flagship in New York City to celebrate the launch of the designer shoe collection inspired by the classic fairytale's iconic glass slipper. I would talk about how great the stars looked at the event, and how pretty Lily James' hair is (or more scandalously, how tiny Lily James' waist is) but let's face it: We all just want to hear about the shoes. As we previously reported, Disney partnered with nine designers to create beautiful, modern versions of Cinderella's glass slippers, and up until recently, only sketches were available. But now, on what is arguably the best day ever, you can see these spectacular designer creations in the real life.

The shoe designers include Nicholas Kirkwood, Jimmy Choo, Stuart Weitzman, Paul Andrew, Salvatore Ferragamo, Alexandre Birman, Jerome C. Rousseau, René Caovilla and Charlotte Olympia, who each took a stab at designing a shoe fit for a princess. The shoes are available for purchase at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York, Harrods in London, and Galleries Lafayette in Paris. Unfortunately, if you don't have the shoe budget of a Kate Middleton, you probably won't be able to get your hands on a pair of these limited edition heels, but you can at least admire them from afar if you live in the right city or know what to search on Instagram (#IfTheShoeFits is a good start).

But luckily, you don't even need to be good at searching Instagram, because I rounded up some pictures for you. You're welcome.

Yes, please.
