When we were five we had a very definite idea of what fairytale princesses wore. It was basically what Michelle Williams wore to the Parisian premiere of My Week With Marilyn on Wednesday but accessorised with a pointy pink hat with a gauzy piece of fabric hanging down from the tip.
We are assuming the little light burst in the right hand image is a helpful fairy who has conjured up the Dior dress for Michelle after she found the actress wearing a ragged dress and crying in the pantry of her stepmother's Parisian home. She arrived in a pumpkin limousine (not pictured) and she's probably got a clutch bag made from a magical potato squirreled away somewhere.
The dress (Christian Dior Spring 2011 Haute Couture - so back in the Galliano era) also has the perfect hemline for Prince Charming to be doing an impromptu shoe-fitting should the occasion arise.
