I am a Disney girl. No two ways about it - I love Disney, through and through, so when I saw Christie’s catalogue of ten designer Disney Princess-inspired dresses, I just had to write a little something on it. All these beautiful retellings of Disney dresses are available to view before they go under the hammer for the very worthy cause of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, which the auction being on November 13th.
Oscar De La Renta's Snow White
The unique dresses were produced as part of a wonderful, one-off partnership between Disney and Harrods: each is a magnificent version of a Disney Princess, paying tribute to the tales of Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas, Rapunzel, Snow White and Tiana.
Jenny Packham's Rapunzel
Christie’s have anticipated the Cinderella dress of gold silk by Versace, the Belle dress - buttercup yellow silk evening gown and cape by Valentino and Snow White’s corseted yellow silk gown and scarlet silk cape by Oscar de la Renta will be the favourite. I myself adore the Aurora dress, by one of my most-coveted designers, Elie Saab.

The exclusive dresses will go on public display as part of Christie’s Vintage Couture and Luxury Handbags auction from November 9th at Christie’s South Kensington, appearing in a winter wonderland setting specially created by the world-famous luxury retailer, Harrods. For now every princess will get to go to the ball!
