The Disney Princesses Were at the Met Gala Too

May 5 2014 - 5:48pm

Disney's princesses were alive and well on the Institute Gala's red carpet [1], thanks to a few fairy-tale gowns. With Charles James glamour setting the tone for tonight's white-tie theme [2], it seems only fitting that style-setters executed the dress code with all the bells and whistles of real ball gowns. So, it wasn't hard to mistake the dramatic looks on the Met Gala stairs for some that appeared in our favorite Disney movies. Scroll on to see who channeled Belle, Cinderella, and even Tinker Bell.

Claire Danes as Sleeping Beauty

Between the pink palette, sweetheart neckline, and full skirt of her Oscar de la Renta [20] bustier gown, Claire Danes [21] was the spitting image of Aurora, aka Sleeping Beauty.
