Christian Louboutin is to create his own version of Cinderella's glass slipper.

The legendary shoe designer will celebrate Walt Disney's re-release of the iconic fairy tale on Blu-ray and DVD later this year by making his own interpretation of the princess' famous shoe.

He said: ''I have been so lucky to have crossed paths with Cinderella, an icon who is so emblematic to the shoe world as well as the dream world.''

Cinderella wore the glass slippers to the ball, where she met Prince Charming. However, when she had to run home at midnight, she lost one and the prince found it and went searching for the owner. When he found out the glass slipper belonged to her, he proposed straight away.

As well as making a shoe fit for a princess, Christian recently revealed he wants to create footwear for Britain's Queen Elizabeth.

Christina - who is famed for his trademark red soles - said the 85-year-old monarch is his dream client and he would love to make something for her.

He said: ''If I could do shoes for anyone it would be a special project for the queen of England. She is the ultimate client.''
