Fab Sugar, an online publication focused on lifestyle and entertainment, has brought attention to a not-so-surprising motif at the recent Costume Institute Ball: Disney-themed MET Gala dresses. Considering how obsessed people have become over Disney princess memes as well as fairy tale story lines in general, it is only natural that designers would embrace such iconic looks intentionally and unintentionally.

The Disney-themed MET Gala dresses include Katie Holmes' daffodil-yellow Marchesa gown, which is reminiscent of Belle's in 'Beauty and the Beast,' as well as Bee Shaffer's Alexander McQueen's tulle and soft powder blue number that brings to mind Cinderella's life-altering dress. Bringing fantasy and glamor to the red carpet, these creations are romantic, feminine and stunning.
