Disney has never been terribly worried about historical accuracy in their animated movies, and sometimes it really shows. Illustrator Claire Hummel decided to try to up the accuracy a bit. She looked at the approximate time period the movies were set in, studied the fashions of the time, and recreated the iconic outfits to be more realistic. Most of the movies don’t have a set date and the styles of the times weren’t well-documented, but these outfits certainly seem a lot closer!
It’s interesting to see which dresses were relatively accurate and which ones were pretty far off. Either way, the pictures are all gorgeous. Check out the gallery for the lot of them. The unrelated pieces on Claire Hummel’s site are also pretty amazing.[Visual News, via Claire Hummel; thanks, Simone!]
