So familiar a gleam by shoomlah So familiar a gleam by shoomlah
First things first. For those of you who swear by the pink dress, yes, there's a version for you as well: [link]

...Aaaaand moving on. So Prince Philip does specifically and emphatically say "this is the 14th century!" at some point during the film, but Philip's an idiot (a handsome, handsome idiot) and I, never afraid to ignore source material, ignored him.

Oddly enough Philip's clothing is a better point of reference than Aurora's (since the hourglass, off-the-shoulder cut of her dress is straight out of the 1950's), and there are far more examples of his get-up from the 1460's onward than in the 14th century. I went with my gut and ended up with something around 1485- a little later than one might expect, but it's such a (beautifully) stylized film that all bets are off.

The off-the-shoulder dress didn't come about until Edward III's reign from 1327-1377, and by the look of the surcote and fur collar she's wearing, you picked a good time period; definitely better than the 14th century interpretation, for sure. Though I'm wondering if they didn't number the centuries differently back then, and Phillip saying "14th century" actually meant 1400s in his mind. Interesting thought...

and her hair in the film was SO 50s but I'm very upset at Disney modernizing their princesses' hairdos. they should have kept it classic!

I love the detail in this dress, clothing like this would have looked so nice in the film's style.

So regal and classic, just like Aurora (I doubt she would have appreciated the fur touch, tho). I remember the Queen wearing a somehow similar (but not nearly as detailed) outfit...? Anyway, gorgeous work.
