Historical Disney Princess Fashion

TheGreatDramFactory Disney Princesses Winter

We don’t know about you but one of the reasons we wish we could be Disney Princesses is for their fabulous wardrobes: colour changing dresses (Aurora), mouse couture (Cindy) and gold ballgowns (Belle), what more could a girl wish for?

So we love seeing historical interpretations of their outfits, like the one above by TheGreatDreamFactory, who took a 19th century painting of Napoleon’s wife surrounded by her ladies in waiting, chopped off all their heads and replaced them with the Princesses. We love the result – just look at those dresses! We can’t decide whether we prefer Jasmine or Aurora’s. Imagine if you could pick one of these up at Forever 21!

Which leads nicely to Claire Hummel‘s historically accurate Disney Princesses. After pain-staking research of the stories and their origins, she re-outfitted each Princess in an ensemble befitting her time and country. For example Beauty and the Beast was first published in 18th-century France so Claire’s version of Belle is rocking a Marie Antoinette-style court dress (want! want! want! Although, that thing looks like it needs a license to manoeuvre.).
