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…

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.

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.
