Top 10 Best Outfits In Disney Films

10. Vanessa (human Ursula) and Prince Eric’s wedding outfits.

Watch out, Wills & Kate! It’s all about Vanessa & Eric! Come to think of it, I see your wedding gown inspiration, Kate. The loose, long brown hair? The long sleeved white dress? Admit it, Kate. You just want to be… PART OF HIS WORLD. YOU WANT THINGAMAMABOBS? HE’S GOT TWENTY! Ariel had a fantastic pink dress, no doubt, but Vanessa’s wedding ensamble takes the wedding cake (I know, that one hurt me just typing it) and it’s mostly because of that gorgeous hair and sinister look. Say yes to the dress indeed!

9. The hooded cape that Belle wears for about eight seconds in Beauty and the Beast.

This hood is so fierce. It’s a maroon color with what appears to be a white fur trim. Belle wears it when she and Beast are singing about how there’s like, something there that wasn’t there before and then they have a snowball fight. This cape/coat thing is so Marc Jacobs.

8. Millificent’s… I don’t know what she’s wearing, but it’s awesome.

That cape! That staff! That lipstick! Those horns! That dragon transformation! What kind of game are you playing, Millificent? You’re like Lady Gaga of the Disney world. That cape is pure poetry.

7. Cruella de Vil’s classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s meets Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? ensemble.

OK no doubt this chick is insane, but she’s also a working woman who wants to wear nice clothing, and if wearing fur really is a crime, why didn’t somebody lock Belle up in a castle? Oh — I guess they did. Anyway, Cruella steals the show in this floor length fur coat over a very Audrey LBD with elbow length red gloves. The matching handbag is a glorious touch. You’ll notice that the coat is lined inside with a fiery red, to match her lipstick. Perhaps this look’s only flaw are those circular Lucy Ricardo green earrings. Those are a little, “Wha hoppen?” But everything else is dead-dog-a-riffic!

6. Gaston’s “No one goes stomping around wearing boots like Gaston” outfit.

It’s no secret that I heart Gaston. He’s probably the reason why I am so messed up when it comes to men. But no one’s neck is as incredibly thick as Gaston’s! And you cannot deny the guy’s ability to pull off a ponytail and leggings. Sometimes Gaston pairs his brown leggings and red tunic with sturdy mustard colored gloves in what I can only assume is leather, because after all, Gaston uses antlers in all of his decorating. What a great guy, he just loves all animals!

5. Tinker Bell’s LGD (Little Green Dress).

Just because Tinker Bell doesn’t have a voice of her own and desperately follows around a boy who can’t commit doesn’t mean that she’s not a strong, independent fairy-woman. There’s something so 90s-raver meets Marilyn Monroe about Tink’s shorter-than-short green dress matched with pom poms on her shoes. And, of course, lots of glitter. And good choice to keep her hair up in a messy bun; I know when I’m busy helping one of my 10-year-old friends kill a pirate, the last thing I want to do is worry about my hair!

4. Princess Jasmine’s red outfit.

Disney princesses don’t wear red unless they’re EVIL. So when Jasmine has to work for Jafar (I think because he wished it of the Genie? This whole thing’s pretty really weird) in Aladdin, her sky blue outfit changes into a fiery red one. SYMBOLISM!

3. Princess Aurora’s drindl.

That’s what you call those great Jessica McClintock/Stevie Nicks type dresses, the ones that have the bustier-ish tie in the front, like you’re a gypsy. Aurora rocks it hard in the forest; a daring move, but it pays off. Her prince fell in love with her at first sight. Note to Kate Middleton: you do not need to wear a see-through dress, girl! That blonde hair is to die for, and she almost did! Sewing is serious business, you guys! Anyway — you could wear this dress today and you’d look totally chic at a music festival.

2. Everything Mary Poppins wears.

The weird flat hat with the flowers, the duster, the bow tie, all paired with bottomless carpetbag and talking bird umbrella? The red and white number with the Kentucky Derby hat? The high-collared button up shirt paired with the sleek skirt while she’s singing the kids to sleep? STYLE. ICON.

1. Ariel’s thrown-together first human outfit.

All she had was a pair of legs, a sail, and a rope, but she made it work. This is minimalist as it gets. It’s so Rick Owens. Its flawed look is what makes it flawless. TC Mark
