Disney Princesses Meet Haute Couture

Sigh. You know I’m a sucker for holiday-themed store displays. I personally have not yet had a chance to check out the famed NYC displays in person this year, but I have been following them via the web, and — as it seems to be the case every holiday season — each store has outdone itself once again.

Now, I am not a fashionista by any means (and to be completely honest, Vogue bores me to tears), but I am aware that there exist numerous fashion meccas around the world, and that each major city boasts its own high-end department stores.

Today, let’s take a trip to Harrods in London.

This year, Harrods has decided to bring to its window displays popular Disney princesses adorned in beautiful dresses designed by some of best designers in the world. And in order to promote — and celebrate! — these collaborations, Harrods Magazine did a photo shoot with the gowns just before they made their way to the mannequins in the Harrods displays.

Check them out below — I seem to be partial to Mulan’s and Snow White’s dresses, while Aurora’s and Rapunzel’s are pieces I wouldn’t wear even if they gave them to me for free. How about you?

    how fun! i love the striking colors of snow white’s gown. and belle looks so romantic.

  5. carmen:

    I love this!!! I also pinned it on Pinterest. My favorite princess is Belle but Snow White’s gown is breath taking.

  6. Omigod. SO COOL. My favourite is Cinderella by Versace. I looked at the dress and instantly knew the heroine before looking to see who it was. Yet it wasn’t cliche.

    Snow White by Oscar De La Renta & Jasmine by Escada were rather disappointing though… Snow White seemed so literal and made the model look so OLD like the stepmother. While I couldn’t even guess the inspiration for the Jasmine outfit.

  7. LOVE this! Like!Like!

  8. […] montrait mercredi les croquis, je vous propose cette semaine d’admirer le résultat, avec la campagne de publicité autour de l’évènement et les mises en scène dans les vitrines de Noël de Harrod’s […]
