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!”

Scroll down below to check out the beautiful photos, and don’t forget to vote for your favorite Indian Disney princess!

I love how Dahlia can't find any other imperfections of this woman so she just goes after the nose ring the whole time! You envious little brat! XD

I'm not sure about this one, the light blue doesn't compliment her skin colour I think. Still beautiful though, definitely understand why people like this.

Cinderella certainly couldn't afford a swell nose ring like that, and I doubt her fairy godmother cursed her with it.

Wait do you....do you NOT like nose rings.... gosh I wish she would have consulted with you first before getting it so you would be happier with the way she looks... what an inconsiderate thing for her to do, not pleasing you and all.

In anything princess themed (toys, etc) Aurora is always in pink. I'm assuming to set her apart from Cinderella.
