princesses in haute couture

if you didn’t know by now, or guess from my valentines day outfit as seen here, i’ve always dreamt of being a disney princess. like, they’re my spirit animal. so, a while ago i was on tumblr and i stumbled across this amazing pictorial on disney princesses in haute couture gowns and my heart began to sing, because disney has created some of the most iconic outfits of all time – most girls can, at one stage or another, say that they’ve wished for a cinderella-type wedding with a gigantic ballgown (nowadays i either want vera or elie, though) or wondered how it was physically possible for belle to move in that obscenely constructed dress.

the project featured designers like jenny packham (i loved her rendition of rapunzel’s dress), roberto cavalli, oscar de la renta, marchesa, valentino, escada, missoni, versace, ralph & russo and (my fave) elie saab with chopard jewellery for most of the pieces.

i really loved how the designers managed to modernise the look but still keep true to the characters – especially cavalli’s rendition of Pocahontas – it was still a designer gown but the print and accents still matched pocahontas’ native attire.

    Elie Saab and Marchesa were the first designers I would have chosen for this. And, of course, Elie slayed with my all time favourite princes, Aurora. Tiana’s and Pochahontas’ also make me want to rip off my socks. All great.
