At Disneyland Paris, the 15th anniversary event is still going on until next year, and there was recently a "fashion event" at Paris "Magic Kingdom".
In a previous update, i told you that the park asked some fashion designers, among them some world reknowned like Azzedine Alaia or Chantal Thomass to design their own vision for the dress of the Sleeping Beauty or other characters like Tinkerbell.
The drawings of each of them were displayed in the Sleeping Beauty castle walkthrough at the 1st floor of the castle some months ago. Last week , a fashion defile with models wearing each dresses happened on central plaza, and next week, all these special creations will be on sale during an auction at the benefit of the UNICEF organization.
An auction catalog was released, and each photo illustrating the catalog was shoot in the park.
Now, you probably saw the Annie Leibowitz Disney advertising pictures - three new one were released recently. Well, it seems that the mise en scène of the Leibowitz pictures had some influence on the photographer who did the shooting for the auction catalog...The result, artistically speaking is fantastic, as you will see below.
One of my favorite is the one above - a "Cinderella" dress , picture shoot inside Phantom Manor
Another one was also shoot in the portrait gallery of Phantom Manor, a dress for "Belle"
This dress was designed for "Cruella" and the picture shoot in front of Phantom Manor
