78 Fierce Fairytale Fashion Looks

From Couture Wonderland Editorials to Evil Queen Fashion

— January 28, 2014 — Fashion
These fierce fairytale fashion looks are showcasing how including classic storybook references can be a fantastically bold way to infuse whimsical elements into clothing.

There is simply something magical about the idea of fairytale characters like princesses and heroes that children and even adults are drawn to. Whether it be the imaginative qualities of children's stories or the use of eclectic imagery, fairytales have become references that are constantly being used in pop culture and fashion. These fierce fairytale fashion designs have derived inspirations from such stories as Alice in Wonderland to the ever popular Red Riding Hood, beautifully combining innocent characters with adult designer apparel.

From Dark Queen photoshoots to haute Disney princesses and chic Robin Hood couture, these fierce fairytale fashion looks will surely entice anyone with whimsically eccentric taste.
