How Disney Princesses Would Look If They Lived in 2019

Belle, Ariel, Jasmine and the other princesses fit in well in the 21st century.

    Illustrator and concept artist Fernanda Suarez has created an awesome illustrated series in which she draws what your favorite Disney princesses would probably look like if they existed in 2019. Her magnificent artworks draw inspiration from contemporary trends set by her favorite style vloggers and brands.

    “I wanted them to truly feel like people you would find on the streets nowadays,” Suarez said during her conversation with BuzzFeed.

    Here’s a closer look at how the most popular Disney princesses would probably look like had they walked amongst us today:

    Belle comes across as the perfect girl-next-door. With curious eyes and messed up brown hair, modern-day Belle looks like she’s still just as independent and headstrong, and still a total book-worm. She reminds us of Natalie Portman.

    Modern-day Ariel is just as mischievous as the original one! With twinkling blue eyes and a sly grin, she is still quite playful. Notice how she is rocking a crab tattoo as an ode to Sebastian, and some gorgeous shell jewelry too!

    Alice is technically not a Disney princess, but she might as well be Disney royalty anyway. Fortunately, Fernanda’s version of a modern-day Alice is apropos. Notice how Alice’s Starbucks-esque drink has been rebranded as the “Mad Hatter Tea Co”.

    Modern-day Moana looks super cool in her strapless crop top that shares a similar color palette with the character’s signature outfit in the 2016 movie Moana.  Though Moana traded her shredded-pandana skirt for a casual khaki bottoms, her overall attire still has a Motunui touch to it, thanks to her purse that seems to be made with native materials from her birthplace.

    This modern-day reimagining of Esmeralda looks very identical to her animated version, but much more alive. To achieve the 21st-century look, the artist dressed the street performer in trendy clothes and accessories, including a sling bag that looks a lot like her tambourine and a keychain that represents her ever trusty pet goat Djaili.

    It looks like modern-day Aurora is spending a lot of her time going out after waking up from a very long sleep. While it seems that her fairy godmothers Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather aren’t around to accompany her, the three are essentially with her in spirit as shown in the three rings she’s wearing.

    Nala’s confidence is perfectly captured in this modern-day human version of Simba’s love interest. Rocking a hairstyle that resembles a pair of lion cub ears, Nala gives off a cool self-assured vibe. Her zebra print skirt and the lion paw tattoo just below her palm are nods to the original character’s life in the wild.

    This modern-day version of the Evil Queen seems to depict the character as a strict boss lady with a very great taste in fashion. While she looks on point in the outside, her scary shadow tells her true nature.

    Hades is a hunky punk in this modern-day reimagining of the character. Though his mysterious and sexy look makes him a little bit endearing, his evil nature can still be seen through his piercing yellow eyes and a slight smirk.

    Scar’s modern-day human version has a very manly appeal. His wispy dreadlocks, scruffy facial hair, and incredible fashion sense can surely attract a lot of ladies. But despite his good looks, his bitter personality is still evident in his envious glare.

    This modern-day reimagining of Cruella is a lot more beautiful than the character’s counterpart in the 1961 animated classic 101 Dalmatians. For one, this version has a rounder physique than the original, which has a super-thin body type. Also, this new incarnation seems to have a better taste in fashion compared to the animated version which is known for her over-the-top fashion choices.

    Now that you’ve seen what your favorite Disney Princesses would look like if they lived in 2019, have you ever wondered what your favorite Disney princesses would look like if they aged and grew up like real people?

    Costume designer Tony Ross, for one, was not the type to rely on his mind’s eye alone. He collaborated with costume designer Nephi Garcia to organize an elaborate set where the duo tried to portray what your favorite Disney princesses would look like. “What would Disney princesses look like as Queen mothers?” That was the question they tried figuring out in the photoshoot. To answer the question, they gathered together six models and their real-life mothers. Here’s how it went:
