Princess of the year by bealor Princess of the year by bealor
I present to you, all the official Disney princesses, in the fashion of the year their representative films premiered.

This took forever, seriously, had to do a lot of research and stuff. But it was really fun to draw :)

Some notes regarding my choices: I went for what could be accurate for the time AND what I think the girls would personally wear. If you don't agree with me that's fine, but remember that our perception of fashion is really personal and it's different around the world (I'm Swedish, so this is how I've seen it).

In case anyone else wonders who they are:
Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel and Merida
The official princess line up.

Aurora's is my favourite. I like Ariel's outfit too.

That's a wonderful idea! Sure, there are lots of Disney princess fanarts connected to certain kinds of fashion and lots of them are doubtlessly beautiful. But the princess characters with the fashion of "their" release year? Awesome!!
And the result looks great! I love how well you have recreated the fashion of "their" time periods (at least I strongly believe that since I've paid attention to what people wore in the 1930s for example or 1950s or 1980s etc. etc...).
Again: Wonderful :wow: :)
Would you also do that with the princes/boyfriends?

Autumn-Opaline Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Was born 1991. Belle is definitely wearing my mother's clothes. I love 'em all. And totally agreeing with earlier comment that Merida = Lorde lol

I love this line up! It's cool to see them wearing the fashions from when their moves came out Clap 
tofutiles Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2015  Student Digital Artist
This is fantastic. I love the 91 choice, its like that weird point where the 80s ended but the 90s hadn't gotten the memo yet.

seriously this is adorable.

Well, Anna is missing T_T
storminparadise Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2015
Beauuuuuuuuuuuuuuutiful :)
But Rapunzel and Merida are ©dreamworks 🙊
Merida is from Brave and that is Pixar. Disney bought Pixar before the movie was released so I would say she can be included here though.

Tangled was directly made by Walt Disney Animation Studios, so I don't know where you are coming from saying Rapunzel shouldn't be there.

Neither were made by or affiliated with DreamWorks.

I like Snow White the best, here. She just works, you know? Plus, 30s fashion is best fashion.

Broeder-RPG Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Actually, if you look at each princess's hair (especially before from early 1990s and back)--each princess is wearing the popular hairstyle of the decade that the movie was made. For Belle it's more natural and pulled back in a ponytail, Ariel has the 80s big puffy hair, Aurora is very late 50s early 60s (younger woman hairstyle), Cinderella has a 50's hairstyle, and Snow White has the bob and curl / perm popular in the 30's.

Most of the later movies didn't have that as much but tried to reflect a more era-related hairstyle for the story (like Tiana, Pocahontas, Jane, etc). Rapunzel's hair getting cut off into a perfect modern haircut in the end was a bit of a throwback to older movies incorporating modern fashion trends into the story. I don't care either way, but I thought it was interesting. :D

Am I the only one who absouletly loves 1950's clothes?
Chepseh Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2015
It' still at least a niche market (p.e. see this charmer of a shop - no, I am not getting any money of the owner: ), so there are more fans than you might think of...!
TheSmilingCake Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nope, I love fashion from the past eras!a
Hetalia4Elea Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I absolutely love them, almost as much as 1800s dresses
AnimeGeekKatie Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Hetalia4Elea Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I would definitely wear one and completely ignore all the weird looks just because THEY ARE SO FABULOUS!
