Cinderella, one of the most classic fairy tales of all time, has captivated and enchanted generations of females all over the world, and the latest take on the story is the newly released feature film, starring Lily James and Cate Blanchett. When it comes to fashion, Cinderella’s style is not just for children’s costumes. Many great designers have been inspired by the timeless tale, and it is also easy to put together a Cinderella-inspired look of your own. OROGOLD reviews the top Cinderella fashion inspirations here.
Cinderella-Inspired Shoe Collection at Saks Fifth Avenue
Saks Fifth Avenue have just launched a shoe collection that has been inspired by Cinderella. Rather than choosing one designer to create the collection, Saks gathered together nine of the world’s best shoe designers, each using their vivid imagination to create their own take on Cinderella’s glass slipper. These modern glass slippers have been designed by iconic names including Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo and Nicholas Kirkwood, and are currently on display, and on sale, at Saks Fifth Avenue, Harrods in London and Galleries Lafayette in Paris.
Lauren Conrad’s Cinderella Fashion Collection
Style setter Lauren Conrad, who first rose to fame in reality shows Laguna Beach and The Hills, has teamed up with Disney and launched a fashion collection for Kohl’s, inspired by the movie. The designer drew inspiration from many iconic elements of the movie, creating a collection of romantic separates and whimsical dresses.
Harrods, one of the most famous department stores in the world, has dedicated their window display to Disney’s movie. The six windows showcase some of the amazing costumes that were worn in the movie, which were designed by Sandy Powell. The scenes that the windows feature include the stepsisters trying on the glass slipper, and the romantic weddin scene. The nine glass slippers that are on sale at Saks Fifth Avenue are also displayed in the windows.
Put Together Your Own Cinderella Look
When it comes to creating a Cinderella-inspired look without having to spend too much money, there are many options available. Your accessories are the most important element, and a wide satin headband is essential. Choose one that is white, light blue or silver. A wide satin ribbon can also be used. Find some large studded earrings that match with your headband, such as large pearls, but avoid anything that is long and dangling. When picking shoes for your Cinderella outfit, it is unlikely that you will have a pair of glass slippers lying around. Instead, choose some pumps in a similar color to your headband, preferably ones that have a shimmery quality to them. For the rest of your outfit, stick to the color scheme of light blue, white and silver, and you will have created your very own Cinderella look.
You can use Cinderella to inspire any type of outfit, for both day and night. Be subtle with your makeup, as you do not want it to look over the top, and be careful about how many Cinderella elements you wear at the same time. ORO GOLD recommends you to get inspired by both the story and the movie, and experiment with different combinations until you find the Cinderella look that works best for you.
