This post was supposed to happen a month ago but I absolutely forgot about it. I discovered the pictures yesterday and realized I did not write about this so here it comes...
The Disney Princesses got a Haute Couture makeover by designers like Valentino, Versace, Elie Saab and more. This is actually a collaboration between Harrods and Disney. Christie's will auction the masterpieces and all the profit will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity.
I really wanted to show you the sketches of the dresses in particular. I saw a few of them in The Independent in the beginning of November and I was mesmerized. Unfortunately, I didn't get the chance to go to Harrods and see the dresses while they were on exhibit but the pictures released are not very flattering for them. However, I would like to believe they were just as beautiful as the drawings below.
I'd say this is a beautiful, well-thought collaboration (which got substantial PR coverage as well) and for a good cause.
