The difference between being ‘princess for a day’ and actually being a princess is blurred in the minds of some brides, as we well know. I can only imagine that these are the women who will flock in droves to those shops that will sell a new line of $1,100 to $2,900 gowns based on those worn by the pretty, pretty princesses in Disney cartoons. Well, them and all the Disney enthusiasts out there.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, the megagiant company “is using its stable of imaginary princesses as inspiration for a new line of wedding gowns.”
“They will be high-fashion and very modern,” said Paulette Cleghorn, president of Designer Loft Productions, a New York public-relations firm representing Kelly. “We are modernizing the princess concept. There is a difference between a girl who is inspired by Snow White and one who wants to dress like Snow White.”
Cleghorn said women who buy from Disney’s Fairy Tale Wedding collection are definitely in the inspired category. The gowns, she said, will only vaguely resemble the costumes made famous in Walt Disney movies and storybooks.
Only vaguely resemble them? There go my chances of wearing Belle’s gown, which I have been drooling after since I was in high school. Please don’t mistake me for some sort of Disney-lover, however. I won’t be putting one of these on my cake…
