Artist Dante Tyler has reinvented Disney princesses as Vogue cover models. The treasured cartoon idols are made over to look like today’s "It Girls" with tiny waists, cat eyes and big hair to boot. The fictional characters are even working their best attempts at the Tyra Banks-coined “smize,” which is supermodel slang for “smiling with your eyes.”
Jasmine, Aladdin’s Arabian princess, works a tight Chanel gown, glamorous bouffant and a titillating peek at her perfect posterior. She's quite the diva, and her headline reads, “3 Wishes: Gold Rims, Jewel Tones, Body Suit.
Pocahontas, scantily clad in a fur bolero and bikini top, channels the late Aaliyah with the swooped hair, fierce stance and urban glam. We must admit, the show-stopper is her royal blue and fuchsia eye makeup.
Disney’s first Black princess, Tiana, got the serious royal treatment. The Princess and the Frog’s Southern belle is transformed into a chic cover girl, wearing a mint green gown with lots of drama. One of her headlines reads “Voodoo Chic: It’s All About Green.” We’re loving the windblown effect. It's froggy fierce and fabulous, indeed.
Other looks include Ariel, Cinderella, Belle and Snow White. These would make great posters.
