I found this picture on a Disney blog I follow, and I actually think she looks gorgeous. I think I'm coming around to this new costume.
I like this picture!

I agree, that's a gorgeous picture, and really shows the beauty of the new gown.

She does look very nice there.

I showed the art version to my boyfriend in a bookstore today, comparing the new to the old, and he said she looked the same. He's just an average person though :P

I love that new gown. It just makes me want to share a waltz with her like I was in the movie. Remember that scene, pictured below?



I can't wait to see her in that gown when I go to Disney this December!

I am usually up for change or something new. My opinion in this one is leave it the way it was. Cinderella is Cinderella. She is a classic. Don't get me wrong she is still beautiful but I don't think anything should change.

they are fictional story book characters not historic representations of people from 100's of years ago. They now look more inline with Rapunzel which is also from "100's of years ago". so which is correct?

The Aurora one doesn't look too different at first glance, length aside.:/

Eta: Nvm. Made the picture bigger. I'm wrong. Mobile makes for tiny pictures.

You do need to see it bigger to get the full effect. Call me old fashioned but they look Disney Princess themed stripper outfits to me . . . well, that's an exaggeration . . . but on the same shopping trip for Halloween costumes we came across a pre-teen firefighter costume that consisted of a miniskirt length firefighter coat, helmet, patent "leather" boots and FISHNET STOCKINGS. Seriously, that one really was a stripper costume--for pre-teen girls. These tarty little princess numbers, while not as offensive, still rubbed me the wrong way. The costumes they market to young girls are just unbelievable.

Ohhh, I have seen worse. Sadly. Granted, they were adults. Not kids....
But yup. I see exactly what you mean.

Sadly this is the case with the majority of mainstream costumes available for women. Witches, Nurses, Disney Princesses. It seems all the costumes would be more appropriate for strippers (no offence to strippers! ) But there is rarely any costumes that aren't so short and low cut. If I want to look like Cinderella, Snow White they do NOT look like that!!!

The difference here is that Snow White was made in 1937, Cinderella was made in 1950, Sleeping Beauty in 1959, Rapunzel was made in 2010. I can't see why they needed to change Cinderella or any of the Disney Princesses. They didn't need to be "modernized", they already make Disney an unimaginable amount of money. The changes aren't going to get people MORE people to buy Disney Princess merchandise and movies. I'm not saying the changes will STOP people from buying merchandise either. But I personally don't like the changes, on Cinderella or any of the other Princess changes either
