Harrods' Designer Disney Princess Dresses Unveiled

23 October 2012
Sarah Karmali

HARRODS' Christmas windows will be taken over by a designer Disney Princess display this year - and we have a preview of the beautiful gowns set to go on show. Some of the biggest names in fashion have created their imaginings of the iconic fairy tale dresses, which will grace the iconic Knightsbridge store's windows next month.

Click through our gallery on the left to see Oscar de la Renta's version of Snow White's dress; Valentino's take on Belle's ballgown; and Versace's tribute to Cinderella. It doesn't stop there - Marchesa has given Ariel a makeover and Elie Saab has recreated Sleeping Beauty's dress, while Rapunzel has been styled by Jenny Packham.

The display coincides with a 7,000 square-foot Disney Princess pop-up boutique on the fourth floor of the store, open now. The Harrods Christmas windows will be unveiled on Thursday November 1, 2012.

AURORA FROM SLEEPING BEAUTY BY ELIE SAAB
Encapsulating the natural grace and innocence of Aurora, this beautiful gown in pale pink is embellished with scattered exquisite beading.

ARIEL FROM THE LITTLE MERMAID BY MARCHESA
A chic and elegant deep blue silk evening gown has been beautifully crafted to combine luxurious draped fabrics, which perfectly embody modern feminine style - capturing Ariel's adventurous under-the-sea spirit.

BELLE FROM BEAUTY AND THE BEAST BY VALENTINO
A fantasy-like dress in silk chiffon with a sheer hooded cape and layers of exquisite pleats, is accessorised with bespoke signature studded flats and a silver flower bag.

SNOW WHITE BY OSCAR DE LA RENTA
'Someday your prince will come…' This silk gown is divine with intricate embroidery across the bodice and a floor-sweeping cape in signature red.

RAPUNZEL FROM TANGLED BY JENNY PACKHAM
A magical dress in pale grey adorned with incredible beading that should never be locked away.

POCAHONTAS BY ROBERTO CAVALLI
Featuring soft, golden and natural earthy colours, this gown incorporates prints evocative of dream catchers with pearl detailing. The lightness of a feather and the wings of a butterfly, it is perfect for a princess in love with freedom.

JASMIN FROM ALADDIN BY ESCADA
An exotic fuchsia silk chiffon gown encompasses the fiery beauty of Jasmine, complete with an extravagant golden flower belt.

MULAN BY MISSONI
A land of silk and jade has inspired this oriental kimono-style dazzling creation, that features bold turquoise shades and red detailing.

TIANA FROM THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG BY RALPH & RUSSO
A dream come true, this mint evening gown with a sweetheart neckline and mesh overlay, features scattered crystals that cascade into a layered tulle skirt.

CINDERELLA BY VERSACE
'You shall go to the ball', in a stunning contemporary interpretation complete with golden layers, a tiara, a bold statement-necklace and of course, glass slippers - emblazoned with the iconic Versace medusa motif.

Ugh, Disney seems to be getting a lot of X-mas attention. Barneys is doing couture Mickey and Minnies...

Eeewwwww!!!!

This gets the award for tackiest piece of sh*t Ive seen for 2012!

If the mayans were not right Imma end my misery come 2013 if this crap keeps popping out.

It is the WORST! It doesnt even work on a kitschy way!

They should have done it with more intellectual designers (though I guess, they wouldnt jump into the chance) and picked another photog.

Who came up with this idea and who in their right mind greenlit it? So derivative!

Im not only disgusted, but pissed off about such a waste!

The Jenny Packham design looks the best to me.. the rest just look plucked from previous collections.
And my god they should have got Tim Walker to do the shoot - imagine.

and of course Marchesa fail at doing some appropriate for Ariel. they could have paid a BIT more attention to Ariel's color scheme...

I think you've hit the nail on the head. Good lord, most of these designs are pretty awful. I've never been a fan of Disney's Cinderella but they've actually made me feel sorry for her. The gown they choose to "embody her" is tragic.

Cinderella by Versace looked really nice in the sketch, but looks awful in that picture. Yikes.

There was literally no 'designing' involved for Oscar's Snow White.
