-font-b-Cinderella-b-font-is-proof-Life-Cute-Decor-vinyl-font-b-wall-b To celebrate the release of Cinderella we visited the Cinderella exhibition in London’s Leicester Square presented by Swarovski. This free exhibition presented both the costumes and the props from the set giving a real behind-the-scenes look into how the film was made. wpid-20150328_183411.jpg

Cinderella is celebrating its 65th anniversary this year and as a huge fan of all things Disney, and especially the story of Cinderella I couldn’t wait to visit! There were over 100 props from the set and over 30 stunning costumes from the film. The tour was a thoroughly enjoyable, interactive experience, taking us through Cinderella’s home and the grand ballroom. We especially loved the transformation from the pumpkin to the carriage! wpid-20150328_181557.jpg wpid-20150328_181815.jpgwpid-20150328_182014.jpgwpid-20150328_181803.jpg wpid-20150328_182134.jpg wpid-20150328_182551.jpg wpid-20150328_182359.jpg 1.7 million Swarovski crystals were used to add extra sparkle to the costumes. They also produced the iconic glass slippers that were used in the film which sparkled with a rainbow of colours.

The packaging is reflective of Cinderella’s beautiful pale blue ball gown. mac-cinderella-makeup Cinderella is in cinemas nationwide now! Becky at Pretty & Petit
