Once Upon a Time,

 Rapunzel dressed in Jenny Packham

 Cinderella in Versace (and the glass slipper) and yes if you notice, there is the medusa head belt on her too! The material somehow makes the dress look tacky on the other hand.

 Tiana by Ralph and Russo. Absolute favourite!

 Pocahontas in Roberto Cavalli

 Snow White by Oscar de la Renta 

I could still remember clearly how my mom used to read me and my little sister the story of Cinderella and the other princesses before we went to bed when we were young. The beauty of the princesses and their perfect love stories fascinated us and we grew up wishing for the life of a princess just as described on the fairy-tales, perfect hair, big gorgeous ball gowns, beautiful faces, prince charming and everything else, except the villains.

As we grow up, we accepted the fact that happily ever after does not exist. We decided to bury our dream of that perfect yet unrealistic life ever since. But this year, for Christmas, Harrods has teamed up with Disney to brought our dream to live again. The princesses are brought to life and dressed in the designer frocks such as Versace, Oscar de la Renta and Elie Saab to delight their shoppers and tourists.
And it was not all about the dresses only, it was how they set up the whole background and how they create the harmony to be able to take the whole scene out of the story books into life!

 Jasmine in Escada. When I was looking through the designer sketches of the dresses that these princesses would wear, Jasmine costume questioned me if it's gonna be arabic enough but in real life, she looks amazing in this Escada red dress.
 Mulan in Missoni 

 Ariel by Marchesa. Ariel's Marchesa dress was somehow disappointing after comparing it to the initial sketch of the dress as the train should be longer to create a better tail effect.

 Belle in Valentino ( they definitely do not forget to let her complete her whole outfit with the Rockstud heels)

Aurora in Elie Saab. Elie Saab is just perfection. Aurora looks perfect in this dress although it was not exactly the same as what it was pictured in the fairy-tale but I believe nobody, even Aurora, could say no to this piece of beauty.
