We’re always impressed by how Disney Style fans show off their passion for Disney. This time, an idea that began with two fans—Traci Hines and Amber Arden—turned into a beautiful 1920s interpretation of six of our beloved Disney Princesses. We instantly fell in love with the style and attention to detail put into this fashionable photo shoot. The models wore flapper looks inspired by Snow White, Rapunzel, Ariel, Cinderella, Belle, and Tiana. Traci’s Ariel-inspired look was a sleek, dark take on mermaid style with an iridescent beaded dress, red bobbed hair, and a fun seashell head piece.
I’m obsessed with the ’20s era, especially its fashion, so when Amber approached me with this idea, I was thrilled to take it on! There’s nothing better than collaborating about something you love with a wonderful friend.
Amber portrayed a sophisticated Snow White in a stylish burgundy red beaded dress, white stole, and cobalt blue hair piece. We love that her bobbed hair is so reminiscent of Snow White’s, but also accurately represents the hair styles of the time period. When asked about her idea to do this project, Amber said,
I love fashion history, costume design, and of course, Disney–and one of my favorite eras is the ’20s. This passion project was just simply something I had to do! Ever since I was little, Snow White’s kindness and compassion has influenced me. I always try to channel her sweetness in my everyday life, so it was an honor to portray her for this shoot!
Ranitra, who wore an elegant Tiana-inspired outfit for last year’s Dapper Day, fully embodies the liveliness and positive energy of Princess Tiana. For Tiana, the girls wanted to stick to the Princess’ green color scheme and add heavy pearls to pull together the style of the era. We love that they took the lily pad detailing from Tiana’s original dress to make a fascinator for her hair, too! One of our favorite makeup artists to follow on Instagram, Richard Schaefer, put his 1920s spin on Belle’s style. His golden beaded dress and long gloves mimic both style from the era and Belle’s look from the film’s most iconic scene. We’re certain you can tell which Disney Princess this beautiful blue look is inspired by. Amy’s sweet Cinderella style is truly a dream come true. Her accessories are perfectly picturesque for a decadently styled 1920s portrayal of Cinderella. What makes Rapunzel’s look stand out against all other Princesses is her long and luscious blonde hair. We love how Joanna’s purple flapper dress and floral hair accents capture the essence of a 1920s Rapunzel.
This magical photoshoot is an excellent example of how one passion brings friends together to collaborate! The hair, makeup, and styling create a fun piece inspired by Disney Princesses!
