In case you thought the only fashion that came out of Disney’s Hercules were Air-Hercs, I’m here to prove you wrong. Let’s step aside from our leading man Herc and focus on the real fashion gods of the film.
First, we have the Olympian Gods. While they may have the least amount of screen time, they certainly dress like stars. I’ll stay away from their individual roles for now, to hone in on some of the more important fashion details. For example, check out these highly necessary gold star earrings or jewel-encrusted oversized cuffs:
Or these knee-high gladiator sandals. I guarantee there will be hundreds of these at Coachella this year.
Then there are the glamorous ladies of the heavens, like Hercules’ mother Hera. Hera’s gown is a glistening fuchsia pink I imagine J.Lo would probably rock at the Grammy’s.
Aphrodite, below, is the Goddess of love and beauty. The draped one-shoulder dress and floor-length hair are a perfect representation of her role.
Next, let’s take a look at the real stars of Hercules—the five muses. The muses are goddesses of the arts who possess the same deity abilities as the Gods, but focus on telling (or singing) Hercules’ story. They’re each dressed in signature draping goddess-wear, but with a twist to match each of their personalities.
Because they possess the same shape-shifting magic as the Gods, my favorite aspect of the muses is their chameleon-like ability to change dress colors in a matter of seconds.
Now let’s talk about hair and beauty—face it, these styles are near impossible to match. That winged eyeliner looks effortless (probably because literally no effort went into it) and their hair flows with every dance move. Moral of the story: If you want to start your day off feeling fabulous, just watch these ladies sing “Zero to Hero,” and I guarantee it’ll be a good one.
Needless to say, I’m a big fan of Hercules, and as you already know, I’m a big fan of fashion, so it was only right to point out these secretly stylish characters. Wouldn’t you agree?
