The Prince in, “The Little Glass Slipper”, is only able to recognize Cinderella when she is in her aristocratic outfit, showing that material possessions are the key to the higher social classes. The Prince during the beginning of the ball sprints out to this “new princess” with such beauties leading to a sweep of silence over the ballroom as she walked in, leading to the the desisting of dancing and “violins [ceasing] to play” due to the fact that everyones eyes became fixated on the “unknown new-comer” (3). Perrault has the Prince at first sight see this aristocratic Princess, but underneath she has more to hide. An average man would think that he would be able to remember the “finest princess ever seen with with mortal eyes” (4), but Cinderella 's material possessions have him tricked.

In the story, Cinderella by the Grimm Brothers, the protagonist, Cinderella, endures seemingly unbeatable obstacles on her path to love. The evil stepsisters exemplify a forbidding obstacle that the protagonist of the story must overcome.

The stepsisters in Cinderella are similar to the green gremlin monsters in the film Destino in that they hinder the progress of the protagonist. The female protagonist in Destino was dancing around when these gremlin monsters ripped away her dress leaving her with a new problem to face.
Also in both stories, Cinderella still fits into the slipper and the step-sister are caught for trying to be Cinderella. However in the Disney’s Cinderella everyone lives happily ever after. In contrast, in Grimm’s Cinderella the step-sisters do not live happily ever after instead they are blinded by the birds pecking their eyes out. Another difference between the two stories is in Disney’s Cinderella the two step-sisters try to put their feet into the slipper, but it was obvious that they were both too big, then Cinderella tried it one and it fit just right. However in Grimm’s Cinderella the two step-sisters cut their heels and toes to fit into the slipper.
