Life imitates Disney

Yeah, right, so what else is new?

Royal Weddings then and now

I vaguely remember some slightly-different colors in the feature film, but maybe that’s just me. (Or maybe that’s just Adobe.)

    No, it’s not just you. Cinderella was definitely a blonde in the original production. (I don’t remember if those are the proper colors of the stepsister’s dresses. I remember one as being green but that could have been from some other retelling of the story, or from a picture in one of the big fairy tale books I had as a child.)

    those colors have been changed — so it’s not AS funny. But still snicker worthy.

    It’s ‘Shopped.

    Here an original-color copy of the original of the top picture.

    I’m still looking for the other one.

    That is, after all, the default assumption in this day and age. (Maybe I should go back and edit some of my FB pix.)

    Hah, I was right on remembering one of the dresses being green (-ish).

    Yeah, that didn’t look right at all. It was Prince Charming who was dark-haired and Cinderella who was blonde in the Disney film.

    Unconfirmed – adorable talking mice in Windsor Castle actually made Ms. Middleton’s gown.
