When choosing a fictional character to portray via footwear, I automatically took on what I consider the more “exotic” characters of Disney and story telling. I find that I myself am very attracted to all sorts of exotic shoes, therefore making a perfect match! The following choices are options for Pocahontas, Jasmine (from Aladdin), Megara (from Hercules), and Esmeralda (from The Hunchback of Notre Dame). If I were their own personal shopper, they would never pine over the love of a man, but for the love of shoes.
For Pocahontas I’d obviously go the “fringe” route. For what is a Native American princess without her fringe? That said, her bare feet would gladly approve both the Chinese Laundry Scarlett Flat and the Guess Galiena Suede Heel.
For Jasmine I opted for studs and stones. Indian princesses belong adorned in both. Her bare midriff and sea of beautiful fabrics would work perfectly with the Steve by Steve Madden Bianna Sandal and the Sam Edelman Nilla Heel. A princess deserves variety!
For Megara I thought, “lucky lady gets to choose from oodles of gladiator sandals!” Which are VERY in this season. I narrowed down the choices for her though to two pairs I saw fit for a goddess of sorts. Steve Madden’s Croww Gladiator Sandal is ideal for walking amongst much land during the daytime. However if she wanted to jazz things up at night, the Report Barrett Gladiator Wedge will give her some length to the legs and certainly turn heads all through Greece.
Finally, for the gorgeous gypsy amongst the tales, I chose the following for Esmeralda. Gypsys are known for their flare of clothing and accessories, so I wanted to choose shoes that followed along the same line of extravagance. The Charles by Charles David Ecstacy Heel is adorned with sequins and cutouts; ideal for a woman on the go, looking for some evening fun. However, the Report Ellen Sandal is embellished with gold and black stones, which work perfectly with a gypsy queen’s many accents of jewelry.
After the age of 12, Disney movies might not appeal to you like they used to, but being the divine fashionista as you are, you have to look at them in a whole new light! Picture all these fine and fancy footwear options the next time you sit down to capture the magical world of Disney.
