Having made their debuts in Harrods’ holiday windows last year, Versace’s Cinderella dress, Valentino’s butter-yellow Belle gown, Oscar de la Renta’s Snow White frock, and Escada’s Princess Jasmine look will go under the hammer—for charity—alongside other designer Disney-princess duds at Christie’s, on November 13. Prince Charming is not included in the auction price.
Following the release of Barneys’ 2012 Electric Holiday film, an animated short that starred tall and skinny Disney characters wearing designer duds (Minnie in Lanvin, Goofy in Balmain, and Daisy in Dolce & Gabbana), the fashion biz took some heat for not portraying the iconic cartoons in their traditional proportions. Well, this weekend, in celebration of Disneyland Paris’ 20th anniversary, Alber Elbaz took a stab at a new Minnie Mouse ensemble. The lovable rodent stomped the runway in a custom purple embellished Lanvin frock and one of the designer’s Fall '13 Love necklaces. Needles to say, Ms. Mouse looked pretty sharp, and she didn’t have to lose a pound to do so. Other runway ensembles included a Cinderella-inspired knit skirt and top from London’s Sister by Sibling, and as well as enchanted wares from Custo Dalmau and Jean-Paul Knott. According to The Telegraph, some onlookers complained that they missed the polka dots. Elbaz offered, “We’re not here to transform people. We love her the way she is.”
