Very early on in every women s life, there will always be a fairytale princess which brought a lot of joy and dreams into their childhood. The idea that they will be beautiful who goes thru many challenges in life then the perfect prince comes along and they will end up happily ever after in a beautiful dress. Even though as we grow up, we realise this is so far from reality however the closest we can ever become a princess is to have the beautiful wardrobe.
In every Decade, there will be a style icon by a royal princess who’s fashion style will influence the fashion trend of that decade. In the 1950s, we have Grace Kelly – Princess Grace of Monoco who’s classic streamline style was copied by women of that era. In The 80s-90s , we had the late Princess Diana who’s haircut and glamourous evening wear was replicated into high street chain stalls all over the world. Most recently we have Princess Kate Middleton who’s effortless and often affordable fashion choices earned her a spot as one of our style icons of this decade.
Inspired by this Princess Trend, my team and I have decided to do a photoshoot featuring clothes by Topshop . inspired by Cinderella,what will Cinderella wear if she gets inspired fellow princesses and style icons doing her princess duties?

For the first look, we are inspired by the question what will Cinderella wear if she enters the library and the world of Belle from Beauty and the Beast? A mint green round collared sleeveless blouse was paired with a white jaquared a-line cotton skirt to create a princess like girly silhouette which is still wearable and modern. Hair was parted in the center and pulled back intro a long, ponytail like chignon topped with a tiara headband by Accessorize to create a whimsy yet simpie look- almost like she did it herself.
LOOK 2 : CINDERELLA X JACKIE O
What will Cinderella wear if she goes out on press tours during the day? Knitted Tee and pencil skirt in Cinderella’s signature colour pastel blue is paired together to create a modern shift dress. Inspired by Jackie O, the look is topped with a tweed jacket in Pink and black to create a more tailored look for fornmal day Princess duties
Hair is set in a side part, curled and twisted leaving the ends loose to create a shorted hair do. This hairstyle is perfect for girls with long hair who wants to try short hair without the need of a haircut.
LOOK 3 : CINDERELLA X SLEEPING BEAUTY
What will Cinderella wear if she goes out to a tea party in the woods? A Black and White Checked top to mimic the print of a picnic carpet. A dusky pink tea length ballad skirt makes the look modern , feminine and practical for sitting down. The hair is pulled up and finished off with 2 bands of crystals to replicate a modern version of the classic Cinderella Updo.
So thats the end of the shoot. Hope you enjoy the photos my team and I created for you this week.
