In what seems like an effort to breakdown beauty stereotypes, BuzzFeed's Loryn Brantz remakes several famous Disney princess designs that replace the princesses' elegant, small and slender noses with those of their villain counterparts. The result is quite striking and opens up Brantz's question, "So a bump in your nose means...?"
Traditionally most, if not all, Disney princesses share similar facial features including large eyes, unrealistic hair, immaculate bone structure and tiny noses that are praised as the statures of beauty and good. The villains on the other hand have much more disfigured and jagged features that prominently include bumpy and larger noses. Brantz's altered designs showcase that the princesses with larger, unusually shaped or unproportionate noses no longer meet this standard of traditional beauty regardless if nothing else on their face or in their personality changes. Brantz's deconstructs the images of beauty and calls attention to how the masses are disrupting the traditional concepts of good and evil.
