Disney Princesses Creatively Reimagined as Modern-Day Millennials

We’ve seen many creative Disney interpretations recently, including iconic princesses reimagined as empowered career women, Renaissance paintings, and even Game of Thrones characters. The timeless appeal of Disney princesses has also inspired the work of Kiev-based illustrator Daria Artemieva who shows how these fairytale characters would look like if they were modern-day millennials.

Snow White is seen taking a selfie, Cinderella is depicted enjoying a slice of pizza, and Pocahontas is illustrated at Coachella music festival. Each modern makeover still keeps each princess’s signature style and personality in mind though: in one image, Ariel (The Little Mermaid) wears her iconic seashell “bikini” over a white crop top, and in another, a modern Belle (Beauty and the Beast) wears denim overalls featuring an enchanted rose embroidery design.

Artemieva also illustrates iconic Disney couples living contemporary lives. Ariel and Prince Eric are seen kissing on a beach and Belle and “The Beast” are illustrated hanging out by their car. No matter the scenario, all of Artemieva’s digital illustrations always retain that charming Disney magic.

You can see more of Artemieva’s work on Instagram.
