Haute Couture Versions of Disney Princesses’ Costumes
Alright, let’s admit it. Regardless of what age bracket we all fall in, it’s pretty hard not to fancy these magical Disney princess characters. While these Disney princesses are only fictional, there are some parts of their stories that go out in the real world. In this case, that should be their royally ethereal princess costumes! If you think their princess costumes are merely out of a graphic cartoon, the fashion world proves that there’s nothing impossible. If there’s anything that can embrace how these fictional princess characters dress, that would be couture.
During fashion week, designer brands have always surprised us with many kinds of exceptional clothing. We have seen very magical ones and undeniably, there are several of them that resemble Disney Princess costumes. If Disney Princesses wore haute couture, this is how they would look like.
Princess Jasmine of Aladdin – Alexis Mabille
Gleaming blue satin, laces and an ethereal veil – how’s that for Arabian nights? We do love how the soft yet intricate details add to the magic of Alexis Mabille’s creation. It’s quite difficult not to notice the resemblance between the haute couture dress and Princess Jasmine’s iconic Middle Eastern royal costume. It features a sultry and delicate silhouette that best suits a womanly physique. Can we also mention that this gown looks like a great Bohemian Wedding Dress?

Pocahontas – Atelier Versace
Can you imagine our Native American princess wearing Versace? Well, Pocahontas’ iconic tribal costume also has its haute couture counterpart and it is quite edgy! We found this mini wrap dress from Atelier Versace which features native-inspired details. Straps, knots and frills define the similar tribal look Pocahontas’ dress has. Don’t we love how modernized the native details are? It’s absolutely sexy and we can already see some celebrities wearing it!
Tiana of Princess and the Frog – Christian Dior
Dior’s couture dresses have always been so astoundingly gorgeous. Among this list of high fashion designers, we do conclude that Christian Dior makes the best clothes fit for a princess. With this ethereal forest goddess gown that Dior showcased during Paris couture show, we can’t help but put it in comparison with Princess Tiana’s dress from Princess and the Frog. Dior features a delicate chiffon material embellished with nature-loving floral accents that truly resemble the Disney Princess’ dress. Oh, and let’s not forget the floral headdress they both share!
Cinderella – Elie Saab
Without a doubt, Elie Saab’s creation would only give you one impression in mind – Cinderella. It’s beautiful signature Cinderella blue color made from silky satin tells all of us that we can be our own Cinderella. We can see a major resemblance not only on the color itself but also with the neckline cut, soft pleats and the headband. The only thing missing is that pair of lovely glass shoes! Well, that is something you can pick up at Dolce & Gabbana. Check out more about designer shoes here: 8 Designer Brands for Wedding Shoes: Walk the Aisle in Style

Francesco Sognamiglio’s stellar creation truly reminds us of Princess Aurora from the Sleeping Beauty. The puffed silk satin material gives definition to the entire gown’s silhouette, making it quite fitting as a royal gown. It makes an enchanting wedding gown for those who wish to be a princess for their big day! We love the minute rose embellishments that go from the veil down to the gown itself. Francesco Scognamiglio’s masterpiece is quite a stunner on its own and its resemblance to Princess Aurora’s iconic costume is undeniably immense.
Belle of Beauty and the Beast – Giambattista Valli
The hype for the phenomenal Disney animation is coming back this year as Emma Watson and Dan Stevens play the lead roles for Beauty and the Beast’s live action movie this March. What we are hoping for is that the film gives justice to Belle’s iconic canary yellow dress! As for the fashion world, Giambattista Valli’s version of it gave it a 100% justice that just plainly looking at it is very magical already. The canary yellow ball gown features layers of puffy chiffon pleated to perfection. It also has the same off-shoulder style that Princess Belle donned as the heroine in Beauty and the Beast.
Rapunzel – Guo Pei
While Rapunzel looks quite sweet and gentle in her lovely purple dress, Guo Pei’s haute couture version gives the royal gown an ancient twist. The rounded puff sleeves, the gleaming fabric and enhanchint crown reminds us of the original Rapunzel from 18th century. Guo Pei’s creation is nothing less mesmerizing and a single glance on it is just full-blown magic.
Elsa of Frozen – Iris Van Herpen

Apart from “Let It Go” conquering mainstream radios for weeks, the animated movie where it’s from has been quite a huge Disney success as well. Only Princess Elsa of Frozen comes to mind when we are asked to think about ice, snow and everything freezing! This is why when caught glimpse of Iris Van Herpen’s Couture collection, we could only associate it with Frozen. The unique design and intricate snowflake-like details is quite out of this world!
Ariel of Little Mermaid – Ulyana Sergeenko
This glorious lace chiffon piece from Ulyana Sergeenko is very reminiscent of Princess Ariel’s dress from the Little Mermaid. It features puffed and embellished shoulders that are quite similar to Ariel’s. We can’t also help but be in awe for its fancy gleaming details that go all the way from the embellishments and the fabric itself.
Elena of Avalor – Valentino
Does this gorgeously ruffled old rose dress ring a bell? Considering the color and the ruffle details, we can easily associate this Valentino dress to Elena of Avalor. The frills give a traditional southern look in it which truly conform Elena’s look.
Snow White – Viktor & Rolf
Last but definitely not the least is Viktor & Rolf’s creation. In fact, this piece is one of our favorites in this list of Disney Princesses’ Haute Couture versions. There’s no denying that this gorgeous dress reminds us of Snow White’s iconic blue and yellow dress! The chiffon ball gown is too enchanting for words and to add to that, the details features in the dress are absolutely innovative. It definitely looks like a stylish modern-day Snow White, right?
