10) Mulan's Green / Multi-coloured Dress
I don't like this dress. The juu green part really suits her so does the red sash. But the rest of the colours doesn't do her any favours.
9) Aurora's Cottage / Forest Dress
This is proof that Aurora looks good in any thing. It's a very plain dull looking dress, but Aurora's graceful movements and natural beauty make it seem elegant. But I can't put it any higher because the grey makes it too dreary!
8) Snow White's Forest Dress
I don't like the back-collar high neck piece. The skirt, upindo is too pale for my taste. I like the bright yellow they use for the skirt, upindo in the franchise sometimes (or mostly). I also don't like that the shoulder pad-sleeves are a different shade of blue from the shade of the bodice, it looks very strange. But other than that it's looks cute on Snow White and it's a classic.
7) Pocahontas' Native Dress
In terms of the dress, she doesn't stand out from the rest of women of her tribe until her father gives her the necklace. Inside the movie I like her dress but not as much as her necklace, natural beauty and personality.
6) Cinderella's Blue Work Dress
Cindy wears this as a rebellion against Prudence's rules about what to wear for Royal Duties. She also wears it throughout "Dreams Come True" as her everyday dress in the Palace. The reason why this dress in here instead of her original movie servant dress is because I'm putting her original one under "Rags" because in a way that's exactly what it is. I like this dress. It doesn't bother me one bit that it's mostly blue. I'll admit the apron is a bit too bright but it's better to copy the shade from Ariel than have another dress copied from both Belle and Alice. That's if Cinderella's apron had been white instead of bright blue. Dark blue looks lovely on her.
5) Tiana's Yellow Dress
This is actually duller than I remember it being. But it's still bright at the edges and I think it looks lovely with her skintone, even if green suits her more. It's a simple dress that slightly looks like a blouse at the collar. It's in the juu five because the uhuishaji quality for me is just as important as the dresses. The Princess and Frog uhuishaji quality is pretty wow for 2D.
4) Jasmine's Aqua Bedlah
I loved this outfit throughout the first movie but when it kept re-appearing for The Return of Jafar, the TV series and then the franchise, I started to hate it. It'll always remain my favourite version in the first movie because the uhuishaji doesn't have the same awe quality after that.
3) Ariel's Town Dress
She wore this to tour Eric's kingdom, the romantic mashua ride, sunset then on the wedding boat. I didn't use to like this dress but now it's growing on me. It's blue and cool, it goes well with her hair and her eyes. Plus the big bow in her hair makes her look pretty, especially for the romantic mashua ride.
2) Belle's Village Dress
It's simple but a lovely soft colour and it stands out from the clothing colours that everyone else is wearing in the village. Which is either rich colours au bright colours. Only Belle is wearing something soft, flowing and light in colour. I've glad they didn't put in the same shade of blue as Alice because the hair would've clashed I think. I think this dress is a classic and looks wonderful against the Autumn colours of the movie.
1) Rapunzel's Tower Dress
This dress blows the other dresses out the water. It's purple! It's pink! And it's detailed in patterns! It's gorgeous. It's a proper nyumbani dress. Well a nyumbani dress of the middle ages that is, like Snow White's but zaidi comfortable. It's just so pretty and I upendo it!
