We're big fans of shoes that Cinderella might like here at Shoewawa, so the news that Rodgers + Hammerstein are to resurrect the classic on Broadway was music to our ears. Now, it's also emerged that one of our favourite US designers is to create the all-important Glass Slippers, which will take centre stage in the show. That man is none other than Stuart Weitzman!

The designer dubbed 'King of the Red Carpet' has been named official designer for the production, and has created a one-off piece to appear on stage throughout the run of Cinderella, which kicks off next month in New York City. Weitzman's glass slipper is a stunning transparent vinyl pump, covered with more than five thousand sparkling, iridescent Swarovski crystals. It undoubtedly looks incredible under stage lighting!

For those wanting to bring a touch of fairytale magic into their own life, Weitzman has also created a capsule collection called 'clearly timeless', which takes the current trend for transparent shoes and adds a sparkly edge for that story book look. Here are a few key pieces from the range:

I'm completely in love with the 'bubbles' captured inside those round, lucite heels. They will be available soon alongside the current season collection at Stuart Weitzman online and in store.

Weitzman said, of his latest creations: "What is every girl's first memory of shoes? Cinderella's glass slipper. Something as simple and accessible as a beautiful shoe can make a woman feel like a princess. Who wouldn't want to be Cinderella for a night? When asked to re-create the iconic slipper for the new Broadway production, I jumped at the chance."
