If Disney princesses lived today, do you think THIS is what they would look like?

There is something super important the artist missed.
  • As a toddler, there was nothing better than Cinderella. I watched that movie daily — always looking forward to the moment her musical mice friends made her a new dress (because, seriously, how cool is it when they make that shoe elevator?).

  • And then as I got older and became obsessed with reading, Belle — the witty, intelligent heroine — became my new favorite.

  • So, each time a new artist creates "real-life" looking Disney princesses, I'm all about it. This time it's Chilean artist, Fernanda Suarez's depictions of modern-day Disney princesses that caught my eye. I love that her depictions include the princesses' passions: Belle still has her book, Jasmine still has her tiger (who also still has a piece of the sultan's underwear in it's mouth).

  • But to me, I feel like these princesses are missing the characteristic that makes every Disney princess a real heroine: kindness.

  • There is no kindness in their eyes

  • We all know those princesses were hard-core women, but their toughness would be nothing without their kindness. Let's take a look at a few of these women and their moments of kindness:

  • Belle

  • In the end, Belle basically saved the Beast because she gave him a second chance. She was even in the palace in the first place because of the kindness she showed to her dad.
