GALLERY: Have a Ball with These Cinderella Costumes From The Walt Disney Archives

By Savannah Salazar

A gorgeous film six years in the making, Cinderella opened in theaters on February 15, 1950. Since then, many iterations of the classic tale have been told, delighting audiences around the world. Along with Ilene Woods, who voiced Cinderella in the 1950 feature, Lily James, Brandy, Anna Kendrick and Jessy Schram have all donned the iconic glass slipper in one form or another. In fact, during D23 Expo 2019, the Walt Disney Archives put together an exhibition displaying their beautiful costumes—from 2015’s Cinderella, to Into the Woods, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella and ABC’s Once Upon a Time.

Inspired by Disney’s animated classic, award-winning costume designers Colleen Atwood, Sandy Powell, Ellen Mirojnick and designer Eduardo Castro created their own spins on the special silver-gray ball gown. So, to celebrate Cinderella’s anniversary and its impact on storytelling throughout the years, we’ve rounded up all the Cinderella outfits from the Walt Disney Archives Presents Heroes and Villains: The Art of the Disney Costume exhibition.
