#Thelist: Princess beauty

In honor of this week’s Beauty & The Beast release, we gathered our favorite moments of beauty inspiration from princesses—both real and fictional. Spoiler alert: there are a lot of tiaras.

1. The Crown
At Dolce & Gabbana, crowns reign supreme. Though there is almost always some sort of head piece on the runways, these five gilded versions are fresh off the fall 2017 runway show.

2. The Real Deal
Though movies and fairytales would have you believe that princesses walk around in full gowns and tiaras 24/7—that’s obviously not the case. Here, the Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Charlene of Monaco, and Princess Charlotte of Monaco show off what royal beauty looks like in the day-to-day.

3. Dior or Disney
At Dior’s Haute couture show, models walked the runway looking like Disney princesses come to life—with the ethereal gowns and floral crows to match.

4. The New Belle
Emma Watson changed a lot about Belle in order to make her a stronger female role model (bye, corset dress). But one thing that didn’t change? The half-up, ropey hairstyle that is iconically Beauty & The Beast.

5. Perfectly Polished
What do princesses choose for their manicures? Christian Louboutin, definitely.

6. Blue Eyes
An entire generation of women whittled blue eyeliner pencils down to nubs during the 1980s, and it’s all Princess Diana’s fault. Her preference for the colored liner is one of the most iconic—and fittingly rebellious—royal beauty looks in history.

7. The Modern Way
At the Elie Saab Haute Couture show, models walked the runway with embellished headpieces, ornate jewelry, and blue-black eyeliner that referenced a modern day Princess Diana.

8. Royal Makeover
The Princess Diaries gave audiences everything we could have ever wanted: Julie Andrews, serious etiquette lessons, and a makeover scene fit for a princess.

9. Roman Holiday
Audrey Hepburn’s take on royal beauty while filming Roman Holiday in 1953.

10. Princess Perfume
Actress Grace Kelly fulfilled the ultimate Hollywood story when she married Prince Rainier III, becoming the Princess of Monaco. On her wedding day, Kelly wore Creed Fleurissimo perfume, a powdery floral scent, which had been commissioned for the occasion.
