The Stars Go Disney! From Taylor Swift As Rapunzel To Lana Del Rey As Snow White

25 January 2013 by

2012 was the year fashion met Disney. The Harrods Christmas window was filled with Disney princesses, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lady Gaga, Anna Wintour and more were transformed into a Disney cartoon for Barney's Christmas Campaign and Minnie Mouse hit London Fashion Week as Giles Deacon, Michael Van Der Ham and Richard Nicholl were inspired by the polka dot clad mouse.

Now Taylor Swift has let her hair down and dressed up as Rapunzel for a new Disney Parks advert. She is perched on top of a tall tower waiting for her prince to come, but of course this fairytale is a tad complicated as there is a fast turn around of the prince charmings. The portrait shot by Annie Leibovitz is truly magical and Taylor is joining an impressive group of stars who have appeared in the Disney portrait series.
Since it began in 2007, the series has featured David Beckham as Prince Charming, Scarlett Johansson as Cinderella, Rachel Weisz as Snow White, Jessica Biel as Pocahontas and Beyonce Knowles as Alice in Wonderland.

Surely there's no one better than Taylor to play the whimsical princess trapped in the tower waiting for Mr Styles Right. 'It's such a wonderful character to get to play, a childhood fantasy come into reality for me,' she says. Indeed, the singing star and her brother used to act out the fairytale when they were younger. 'We were able to escape to that place anytime we had a hard time. Any time you're going through something rough, you can go back into your imagination and you're at Disney World.' We've been there, sister.

Lana Del Rey is also dressing up as a Disney princess this week. Taylor's fellow songstress is playing the part of Snow White on the cover of Tokyo's Numero March issue with a big bow planted on her head while taking a big bite out of a juicy red apple. Yes, it's a tad more traditional than K-Stew's swash-buckling version.

But these two pop stars aren't the only ones who have been inspired by Disney. Take a look at our favourite Disney makeovers in the gallery below...
