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.

Blue would be periodically accurate for a girl. Blue is the color of emotion, and was used as the feminine color of childhood (not pink) until Hitler decided that pink was the color for homosexuals in the concentration camps. Pink was a lightened version of red, the masculine color.
So personally, I'd think she'd be wearing blue if they were going by "girl colors".

I see people repeating this factoid all the time- yes absolutely, the determination of "pink" as strictly a "girl colour" is a relatively modern conception, but the presumed dichotomy- as if all women wore blue and all men wore pink- is oversimplifying a much deeper and more nuanced approach to color throughout European history.  Especially since the red/pink vs. blue thing is about children, not adults. :)

I love the blue dress, but I don't love it because it's somehow more historically accurate- there's tons of evidence for pink dresses throughout history.

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!
