I have an unreasonably difficult time separating gorgeous ginger Amy Adams from her Disney princess character in “Enchanted.” This is exactly what I imagine a princess would wear should she leave the castle to attend a small awards ceremony, because duh, princesses always wear floor-length Oscar de la Renta, even to fairly casual events.

Amy Mebberson Shows That Disney Characters Can Wear High-Fashion

Amy Mebberson is a frequent staple of our Things We Saw Today posts, an artist who not only uses her spare time to create adorable Disney and Muppets crossover art, but who draws a lot of Disney stuff professionally, from being the regular cover artist for Boom! Studios’ Muppets, Pixar, Darkwing Duck and other Disney titles, to her current stint as the artist on APE Entertainment’s Strawberry Shortcake and Sesame Street comics. Mebberson took issue with Barney’s New York’s recently unveiled designs for a holiday window display using classic Disney characters like Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck. The problem was the drastic redesign that stretched the characters’ limbs to creepy lengths and rendered Minnie and Daisy rail thin everywhere but their heads. So, she decided to provide an alternative. Read more…

Alber Elbaz Is The Best
It's official: the Lanvin designer is the nicest person in fashion. Read More »

In the latest installment of fashion’s never-ending quest to butcher every chaste relic of childhood, Barneys New York has cast beloved Disney characters as this year’s subjects of their famed holiday campaign. They aren’t quite the precious figures you might recall; in fact, the luxury department store has given these familiar faces a bit of a high-fashion makeover. Read: creative director Dennis Freedman put them on the Karl Lagerfeld diet of Diet Coke and human souls.

Freedman said of the change, “The standard Minnie Mouse will not look so good in a Lanvin dress. There was a real moment of silence, because these characters don’t change. I said, ‘If we’re going to make this work, we have to have a 5-foot-11 Minnie,’ and they agreed. When you see Goofy, Minnie and Mickey, they are runway models.” For shame! What would Alber say — and one has to wonder, is Goofy the rumored secret bastard child of John Galliano and Kanye West? [The Gloss]

DSW Launches Glass Slipper Collection For Wannabe Cinderellas

If your efforts to land a rich prince have been unsuccessful thus far, maybe it’s time to switch up your footwear choices. An excellent bet for aspiring princesses? DSW’s new Glass Slipper collection, a collaboration with Disney to celebrate the October 2nd release of “Cinderella” on Blu-Ray. Available in stores and online on October 1st, the limited edition collection will include a variety of heels (none of which are actually made of glass) embellished with fairytale-worthy jewel and lace accents, priced from $59.95 to $89.95. Each shoe will include an embossed carriage logo, but alas, no tracking mechanism for that inevitable moment when it falls off your foot as you rush out of a ball at the stroke of midnight. Guess you’ll still have to rely on a determined prince and Craigslist missed connections to be reunited with your lost slipper. [Racked]

Same-Sex Disney Couples Live Happily Ever After

Artist Rodolfo Loaiza’s new show, “Disasterland,” features colorful paintings that throw out traditional Disney narratives and re-imagine them in ways that more accurately reflect the world we live in. For example, “heterosexual happy endings have been discarded; outdated,” and some popular heroes, princesses, and villains have been recast as same-sex lovers. Hercules and Aladdin make a gorgeous couple, don’t you think? Click on the gallery to see a few more, including Belle, Jasmine, and Ursula! [Bust]

Christian Louboutins Brings A Fairy Tale To Life With His Take On Cinderella

Louboutin Clients Are Tarts
The shoe designer said it himself. Read More »

Nobody ever told us who designed Cinderella’s glass slipper, but if a contemporary version of the tale were to take place, Christian Louboutin would be a shoe-in for the job — so it’s only natural that Disney chose the French designer, known for his luxurious red-soled footwear, to create a modern-day take on the fateful shoe. Unveiled yesterday in Paris, the results are infinitely more practical than a heel constructed of, uh, glass: the shoe is actually made of a fine layer of lace and covered in a smattering of Swarovski crystals, including crystal butterflies. I totally would have preferred to see Louboutin create a pair of actual glass slippers, even if it meant they were unwearable. They would look just as pretty on display as they would on the foot of a future princess. Or, you know, a stripper named Princess. Or Shauna Sand. [Fashionista]

First Look: Angelina Jolie Is A Magnificent Maleficent

Here’s our first glimpse of Angelina Jolie in her upcoming role as Maleficent (the evil queen from “Sleeping Beauty,” in case you need a Disney movie refresher). “Maleficent,” which will hit theaters in 2014, promises to flesh out the backstory of this legendary villain, and judging from this picture, Angelina is creepy perfection in the lead role.

10 Disney Park Confessions That Made Us Do A Double Take

“Disney Park Confessions” is a Tumblr blog documenting, well, confessions about Disney theme parks. When I first heard about it, I assumed there would be a lot of people admitting to doing naughty stuff in the Epcot bathrooms, but most of the confessions are a lot more innocent–and a lot weirder–than that. Click through for a roundup of some of my favorites… [Disney Park Confessions]

We may be a little old to go see Disney movies by ourselves (although not too old to belt out “Part Of Your World” the shower). But we’ll be dragging the nearest seven-year-old to drag to a theater and to see “Brave,” Pixar’s newest computer-animated film with a female protagonist. Lots of Disney flicks star princesses who are sweet, passive, and looking for love; “Brave” stars a spunky gal who is a skilled archer and not content with the life her parents want for her. Princess Merida lives in the Scottish highlands and defies her parents wishes and insists on following her own path in life. Pixar has released a three-minute clip from “Brave” (longer than the teaser trailer they released before) and we have to say we’re digging it! Anyone down for a mass-Frisky reader movie-going trip?
