Animation duo redesign Disney princessess footwear

When we really thought we had seen it all, from flamboyant gowns, wedding dresses, bespoke lipsticks and the phenomenon that was Frozen; married Disney animators Normand Lemay and Griselda Sastrawinata-Lemay have turned their talents to run an Instagram account by Walt Disney Animation Studio called @grizandnorm.

So you may be wondering, what’s the big deal?

We have all grown accustomed to what Disney princesses, heroines and villains have worn over the years, but this famous duo who have worked on Frozen and Home have impressed us by working their magic on some of our on screens most famous characters and kitted them out with a pair of shoes like we’ve never seen before. The pair have created a serious game of shoe envy, and if the following shoes were real, Carrie Bradshaw would be first in line.

Griselda has told Disney ‘The inspiration for this series of Disney character-inspired shoes came from daydreaming about Disney princesses wearing my favourite designer shoes..when done right, (shoe design) exudes personality and character. In my mind, a great pair of shoe is the exclamation point to an outfit’. And let’s be honest, she couldn’t be more right! Even Manolo Blahnik with his latest handbag collection claims that ‘every woman needs a jewel. Something very special and beautiful’.

From the famous red-soled Christian Louboutin to the infamous Sophia Webster and the sophisticated House of Chanel; the two have truly and wonderfully (may I add) brought to life what they think each Disney character would wear; with a touch of sparkle for some!

Take a look at some of my favourite pairs:
