Cinderonce: The Story Of "Cinderella," As Told Through Beyonce Songs
Cinderonce Has Her Freakum Dress On!

Beyonce’s life has been a bit of a Cinderella story, so it’s not surprising that her songs provide the perfect soundtrack to the classic fairy tale. In the amazing video above, from former “American Idol” contestant Todrick Hall, Cinderonce’s “Diva”-esque fairy drag-mother takes her from scrubbing floors to rocking her best “Freakum Dress” at the ball.

If your efforts to land a rich prince have been unsuccessful thus far, maybe it’s time to switch up your footwear choices. An excellent bet for aspiring princesses? DSW’s new Glass Slipper collection, a collaboration with Disney to celebrate the October 2nd release of “Cinderella” on Blu-Ray. Available in stores and online on October 1st, the limited edition collection will include a variety of heels (none of which are actually made of glass) embellished with fairytale-worthy jewel and lace accents, priced from $59.95 to $89.95. Each shoe will include an embossed carriage logo, but alas, no tracking mechanism for that inevitable moment when it falls off your foot as you rush out of a ball at the stroke of midnight. Guess you’ll still have to rely on a determined prince and Craigslist missed connections to be reunited with your lost slipper. [Racked]

Christian Louboutins Brings A Fairy Tale To Life With His Take On Cinderella

Nobody ever told us who designed Cinderella’s glass slipper, but if a contemporary version of the tale were to take place, Christian Louboutin would be a shoe-in for the job — so it’s only natural that Disney chose the French designer, known for his luxurious red-soled footwear, to create a modern-day take on the fateful shoe. Unveiled yesterday in Paris, the results are infinitely more practical than a heel constructed of, uh, glass: the shoe is actually made of a fine layer of lace and covered in a smattering of Swarovski crystals, including crystal butterflies. I totally would have preferred to see Louboutin create a pair of actual glass slippers, even if it meant they were unwearable. They would look just as pretty on display as they would on the foot of a future princess. Or, you know, a stripper named Princess. Or Shauna Sand. [Fashionista]

Cinderella, she’s got a problem — a sex addiction problem. You wouldn’t think it, with all the crinoline and lace she’s always wearing, but the girl’s got it bad. And it’s time that the rest of her fairytale friends did something about it — so they’ve staged an intervention. But … it’s not going so well. It seems Cinderella is a real attention whore.

Emma Watson And Marilyn Manson Team Up For “Cinderella”

It looks like the gorgeous and uber-talented Emma Watson will not be forever typecast as Hermione Granger. Her next role will be in a musical version of “Cinderella” with (dun dun dun) Marilyn Manson! Manson will be the producing the film, but there’s no word on the director yet. Watson will be singing and acting in the flick, which will be her first film outside of “Harry Potter.” Because I’m not counting the TV movie “Ballet Shoes” or “Tales of Despereaux.”

Doesn’t this sound like it should be a Tim Burton movie? I’m hoping Manson will be playing the evil stepmother and not the prince, ’cause if Emma gets taken under Manson’s spell and goes goth like Evan Rachel Wood, I’ll be heartbroken! Stay strong Emma! Resist the patent leather! [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Who Wants Their Wedding Theme To Be “Tacky”?

Whoa. I’ve heard of theme parties, but never theme weddings. Our girl Erin, who’s an Editor over at Shine, posted about the increasing popularity of theme weddings and equated the trend with the prevalence of bad tattoos. But one particular link within her story caught our eye: WedThemes.com. The site has literally hundreds of tickety-tackety wedding theme ideas, from “your favorite creatures such as dolphins, doves, butterflies and other insects, birds, and fish”, to “sorcery and enchantment await your guests when they witness the wedding magic of your wizard’s wedding.” So that got me thinking about what my dream theme wedding would be, were I the type of person who would invest time and money into such a thing. Catherine said, “I would totally do a ’30s or ’40s theme wedding — not a flapper wedding, like from the ’20s, but something very retro. Or, because I have Scottish-blood, maybe I would do a Scottish wedding and wear my family tartan as my wedding dress. Can I do that? I don’t think that white is really a good color for me.” As for me, I think I would do something extraordinarily over the top, like a Marie Antoinette-themed wedding, with powdered wigs and bustles and little mini cakes.
