Everything You Need to Feel Like 'Cinderella'
Before the clock strikes midnight, stock up on all the stylish products inspired by the film.
"We all have our own Cinderella stories," Coco Rocha told us as she walked us through her first apparel collection for HSN, inspired by the anticipated Disney re-make that (finally!) hits theaters today. "As cheesy as that might sound, it’s very true. I was an Irish-dancing nerd back in Canada. Boys and girls made fun of me, and then this man came up to me and said, ‘Have you ever thought of modeling?’ He was kind of my fairy godmother at the time, changes my life and then here I am in New York standing talking to you." The supermodel is one of many designers to put her own spin on the classic tale. From affordable threads to magical makeup to reimagined glass slippers, take a look at all the fantasized fashions dreamt up from the blockbuster.
1. Happily Ever After Hub at HSN
While the apparel collection marks Rocha's first fashion design endeavor, HSN's established designers, including Heidi Daus, Donald J. Pliner and Vince Camuto, also tried on the classic fairytale. Snob Essentials even got in on the action, offering up stylish accessories exclusively for the shopping site. Still, the supermodel's Modern Princess collection boasts an edge. "I didn’t want everything to be gowns because as working women now—modern princesses—we don’t go home, put that gown on to go to that event or dinner because we just don’t have that time," Rocha explains. "So it was definitely important that these pieces have to go from day to night. Our modern royals—your Beyonces, your Michael Jacksons, your Princes—wear leather. This is what they wear."
2. JCPenney Makes Dreams Come True
In similar fashion, JCPenney challenged fashion students from Kent State University to view the magical blue ball gown from the film and sketch their own interpretations of a modern-day fairytale for stylish judges, including actress Katie Holmes, designer Charlotte Ronson and Marie Claire Creative Director Nina Garcia. Winner Jay Lewis' design is now displayed in the retailer's window at the Manhattan Mall, and he received a $5,000 scholarship to continue his education. While you can't purchase his one-of-a-kind gown, the retailer offers Cinderella products for children.
3. Fantasy Footwear at Saks Fifth Avenue
The original gown danced its way down to New York City's Saks Fifth Avenue store-front windows to help unveil designers' versions of the magic slipper. Custom designs by Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia and more are sold exclusively at the department store in select locations.
4. Reigning Queen of California, Lauren Conrad for Kohl's
