This Artist Gave Disney Princesses New Dress Designs, and the Results Are Beyond Stunning
Ever wondered how your favorite movies would look if they were just a bit different? What would The Notebook be like with '70s Woodstock fashions, or Breakfast at Tiffany's set in a provincial European town instead of bustling New York City, or Titanic if Rose would've just scooted over a little for poor Jack Dawson (#stillnotoverit)? Reimagining the stories we know by heart can be a way to continue to grow our appreciation for these classic narratives and even fall love in with them all over again by adding a little bit of ourselves into the mix. Artist Marta Sánchez García from Instagram account @wecallitdisney has found the perfect way of reworking the Disney classics: dreaming up the same scenes we know and love from the films but with totally different dress designs on the princesses.
With reworkings of color, material, and shape, Sánchez García totally refreshes the movies we grew up on, and the results are enchanting. "I based the princesses' gown redesigns on dolls that Disney launched recently, specifically their Midnight Masquerade Collection," she told POPSUGAR. "The collection's gowns and designs are simply incredible, but when I realized they would only be seen on the dolls, I asked myself: 'How would the princesses look in these new designs in the actual movies?' So I went ahead and drew them with the gowns."
As she retooled scenes like Belle dancing in the palace and Tiana being head over heels in love with Naveen, Sánchez García incorporated these very different dress designs, which created modern, fun interpretations of the films. The classics are the classics for a reason, but creativity like this shows us even Disney princesses can use some outfit changes every once in a while.
