Just like every other Gen-Y woman, I grew up on a diet of Disney Princesses. Back then, no mother seemed to feel that the doe-eyed damsels in distress can be a "bad role model" for their little girls. It does feel like we are becoming prudes. Anyway, the point is: I LOVED my Disney Princesses. Name anyone of them and I can belt out her soundtrack in an instant.

That explains why I was particularly excited when I saw the Cinderella Costume and Photography Exhibition at Chadstone Shopping Centre today.

The exhibition was held to celebrate the live action release of the Disney film, Cinderella, which stars Lily James as Cinderella, Rob Stark  Richard Madden as Prince Charming, Bellatrix Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother and Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother (You can watch the movie trailer here). The movie poster, shown partially in the hero image above, is shot by Annie Leibovitz, who has worked with Disney over the years on the Disney Dream portraits that transformed celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Queen Latifah, Tina Fey, Beyonce, Russell Brand, among a few, into notable Disney characters.

Chadstone really lives up to its name of "The Fashion Capital" by holding quaint exhibitions like this (I've also seen the Sex And The City movie's costume displays) and Cinderella was no exception.

Stepping into the exhibition was like stepping into a fairytale land. The Tiffany Blue and gold lettering in front of the exhibition makes a royal statement amidst the luxurious marble tiles and skylight, surrounded by luxury fashion houses. In the exhibition you can study the still drawings from the 1950s classic, admire at the Fairy Godmother's Gown and check out Cinderella's ball gown.

There were also several Cinderella "inspired" dresses on display, you know...just in case you saw the exhibition and thought it would be a good idea to dress like Cinderella. Jokes aside, the Cinderella-inspired dresses would gorgeous and I would love to wear it.

It was a shame that it was bit crowded and the heat (Aussie shopping malls never seem to be able to keep cool enough in summer for some reason..) was slightly annoying. But I still managed to capture some pictures of the quaint trinkets in the exhibition.

Anyway, it's all very magical and I will definitely watch Cinderella when it shows in Australia.
