Cavalli’s Pocahontas dress, Escada’s Jasmine gown, Missoni’s Mulan creation, and Valentino’s Belle ball gown.

Naturally, the dresses, which were on display earlier this month at Disney’s D23 expo in LA, are expected to fetch a pretty penny. According to Christie’s vintage couture specialist, Clare Borthwick, “The rarity of these items mixed with the global appeal of Disney Princesses will make these extremely sought-after, and we expect much interest from around the world.” Sounds about right; we’d snap them up in a heartbeat if we had the funds to do so!
