Though as adults we may cringe at princess culture and the outdated stereotypes that come along with it, there's just something special about the Disney princesses we grew up with like Cinderella, Belle, Snow White, Aurora, and Ariel. And they aren't all damsels in distress; the newer crop of the crowned ladies have attempted to be better role models for little girls. These include Princess Sofia the First, Brave's Princess Merida, and Frozen's Elsa and Anna.
But whether these Disney princesses — or, for the purists, animated heroines — are classics or newbies, they've inspired many creative artists who've transformed them into thought-provoking modern art. So while we wait for The Real Housewives of Disney to become an actual show, satiate your obsession with some of our favorite artistic renditions of Disney princesses!
