We have to admit, we’re into the trailer for Disney’s live action Cinderella movie, coming in March. What’s not to love? It stars two of our favourites, Helena Bonham Carter as the fairy godmother and Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother, plus lovely newcomer Lily James (Lady Rose on Downton Abbey) as the O.P. (Original Princess) and Game of Thrones cutie Richard Madden as Prince Charming. And the costumes! Three-time Oscar-winning costume designer Sandy Powell (Shakespeare in Love, The Aviator, The Young Victoria) is running the show. While there’s something about an OTT princess gown, we’re also inclined to fall for something a little sleeker. Here, 15 modern gowns that would look right at home on a capital-P Princess.
