Model and Make-up artist Hamel Patel decided recently to do what countless girls have done over the years, play dress-up and recreate Disney princesses.

Hamel is from North Carolina, but she pays homage to her family heritage by reinterpreting classic female characters such as Snow White and Cinderella in a traditional Indian style. Famous for its colors, flowing dresses, and ornate jewelry, Indian fashion perfectly complements the fantasy and imagination of Disney characters.

“Growing up, I always wished there was a Disney princess I could relate to, one that represented where I came from,” she wrote on Instagram. “Introducing outfits/princess makeup looks inspired by the eight original pretty princesses we all grew up watching, with a little desi twist!”

Uhm, no, the color for Aurora is wrong. It should be blue (unless in this alternate reality, Flora had beaten up Merryweather and won the duel).
