I came across a link today that made me curious about something I generally stay away from.
An illustrator took the princesses and reimagined what they would have actually been wearing given the time. The resulting images are gorgeous, richly detailed and “historically accurate.”
What really interests me is these princesses’ stance and expression. Pocahontas is no longer smiling broadly, Belle is no longer precocious; it’s as though by changing their clothes to fit the period, they themselves have changed.
Or learn more from the artists’ cheeky, if blunt, FAQ page.
