Illustrator Claire Hummel has created a unique homage to the Disney princesses through her series of graphic illustrations entitled 'Historically Correct Disney Princesses.'

Claire re-created the princesses in attire that would be correct for their time and social status. Instead of Belle donning an A-line gown, she is depicted wearing a set of panniers to enlarge her hips, which was a common fashion in France in the 18th century. Ariel is featured with flamboyant shoulder poofs as well.

The Historically Correct Disney Princesses is a fun series that provides a historical contrast to the mainstream princesses that Disney depicted to us as children. Which traditional outfit most appeals to you?
