Live Your Fairytale with New Disney Princess Designer Gowns, Rings

Why leave behind notions of a Disney happily-ever-after as an adult when you can continue to dream as a Disney princess? It may be a small world after all, but every little girl can now continue growing up as a princess!

Kirstie Kelly, a renowned couture designer, teamed up with Disney Consumer Product to launch a line of princess-inspired wedding rings and gowns. The Tiana gown, named for the latest African-American addition to the Disney princesses, will be the signature piece among the collection that includes the Snow White Diamond Edition gown, “Maidens” for bridesmaids, “Blossoms” for flower girls.

The jewelry collection, Kirstie Kelly for Disney by Mouawad, includes a showcase of diamond and platinum engagement rings and weddings bands. The collection evokes the spirit of each princess without being unnecessarily tacky (a red diamond or ruby for Snow White would be a little much!). Rather than highlight the princess through the ring with obvious and tacky details, subtle references of each princess can be seen throughout. For Cinderella’s ring, it evokes grace and charm with its pave and millgrain borders. For Ariel’s ring, there is more of a boldness and artsiness.

Are the rings and dresses cute or tacky? Let us know!

Givenchy, How I Adore Thee!

The new Givenchy collection is so alluring it’s dizzying! I feel like I’m being hypnotized by a snake charmer (in this case the snake charmer is no other than designer Ricardo Tisci, who I happen to have a huge crush on).

The velvet coats, structured but floaty gowns and embroidered pieces are mouthwatering.

Even while the collection is somewhat confusing, or disheveled, in a way, the lines remain as a constant from model to model, piecing it together.

How to take inspiration from this collection?

The black velvet coats are an easy addition to our closets. For a more daring look, the sarouel pants are a good choice.

I’m amazed that, despite all the recent drama unfolding about the future of Lacroix, he produced such a beautiful line – I guess that’s the mark of a true couturier.  One of the things that stood out to me about this collection is the wearability.  Lacroix has shown pieces in the past that I frankly couldn’t understand, but I can see myself wearing (and would die to wear) every single piece – turbans and all.  Let’s hope this isn’t his last collection!
