Princess Tiana inspires Kirstie Kelly for Disney collection

Disney Consumer Products and renowned couture designer Kirstie Kelly are launching an exquisite gown inspired by Princess Tiana, Disney's newest princess in more than ten years and the first African American Disney Princess character from the highly anticipated animated musical film, The Princess and the Frog. The Tiana gown will take its place in the phenomenally successful Kirstie Kelly for Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings line as the signature piece of an all new collection of bridal gowns.

The new collection also includes the Snow White Diamond Edition gown, all new “Maidens” for bridesmaids, “Blossoms” for flower girls and a new line of fine jewelry with renowned jeweler Mouawad, each inspired by a Disney Princess character.

Princess Tiana's determination, natural beauty, and universal appeal shine through in this sensual gown. From the Kirstie Kelly for Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings collection. The sheath-style gown has an ivory hue with a hand beaded rouched bodice of silk chiffon; a cascading pleated silk skirt and a waterfall train. And the introduction of the Snow White Diamond Edition gown takes place in tandem with the Blu-ray™ Disc debut of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs – one of the most requested Disney home entertainment releases of all time.

The Snow White gown incorporates handmade flowers, fine beaded details and silk organza with a sleek yet romantic take on the sultry fit and flare shape.

"The Princess Tiana gown is a very special part of the Disney Princess collection," said Kelly. "When I look at this gown I see a modern woman that is very comfortable with her own identity. The gown is designed for a bride with a modern sensibility and effortlessly exudes both romance and sultry flair.”

Presented by Walt Disney Animation Studios, the musical The Princess and the Frog is an animated comedy set in the great city of New Orleans. A modern twist on a classic tale, the film features a girl named Tiana who dreams of owning her own restaurant, a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again, and a fateful kiss that leads them both on a hilarious adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana.

The Princess and the Frog marks the return to hand-drawn animation from the revered team of John Musker and Ron Clements, with music by Oscar-winning composer Randy Newman. Featuring the voice talents of Anika Noni Rose, Terrence Howard, John Goodman, Keith David, Jim Cummings, Jennifer Lewis and Oprah Winfrey, the film opens Nov. 25, 2009, in Los Angeles and New York and hits theaters nationwide on Dec. 11.

The Kirstie Kelly for Disney by Mouwad collection is a delicately crafted showcase of Disney Princess-inspired diamond and platinum engagement rings and wedding bands. The collection evokes the spirit of each Disney Princess with exquisite details and intricate design. Subtle references to the personalities of each princess can be seen throughout the collection such as pave and millgrain borders, suggestive of Cinderella's ethereal grace and charm, or baguettes and clean lines for Ariel, symbolic of an art deco influence and her bold individuality. Jasmine's ring exudes the rich exotic patterns found in ancient mosaics and dazzles with a bohemian chic aesthetic. Sleeping Beauty/Aurora's princess cut ring conveys an elegant yet romantic sensibility, and for Belle the use of rose cut stones and delicate pave mounting convey her modern yet sophisticated femininity. Hinting at a vintage feel, the Kirstie Kelly for Disney by Mouawad collection embodies the modern woman.
