Joan Smalls Transforms Into Our Favorite Disney Princesses


We’ve seen Disney princesses transformed into everything from famous feminists to hipsters. However, it’s CR Fashion Book’s latest high-fashion and modern twist on the classic beauties that has truly stolen our hearts.

The glossy’s Spring 2014 issue stars supermodel Joan Smalls depicting the holy trinity of Disney princesses — Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White — in a feature entitled “Lee Daniels Fairy Tale Theater: One Girl’s Nightmare in Three Acts.”

Although the Oscar-nominated director, writer and producer, known for his films “Precious” and “The Butler,” is an unconventional pick to shoot the editorial, his stunning photographs and imaginative storytelling shows he’s right at home in the world of fashion.
