    Disney Adds 'Giselle' to Their Princess Bridal Gown Line

    During Bridal Week in New York, Disney Consumer Products announced the latest addition to its wedding gown collection by Kirstie Kelly for Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings.


    Enchanted-Inspired ''Giselle'' Gown to Be Unveiled
    New Platinum Gown Launched as Disney Princess-Inspired Bridal Line Expands At Bridal Fashion Week

    NEW YORK—April 13, 2008— Every princess begins her journey with a dream and Disney's most recent heroine Giselle is no exception. As a classic fairytale collides with modern-day New York City in Disney's Enchanted, so the newest gown in the Kirstie Kelly for Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings collection combines the organic with the sophisticated. The Giselle gown, the latest platinum gown in the line, gives a subtle nod toward nature with cascading leaves of hand placed organza and net and will be unveiled alongside twelve new gowns in the Disney Princess-inspired line through live-model fashion vignettes on Sunday, April 13, 2008, at Loft 11 at 7:30 p.m.

    The addition of the Giselle gown continues the phenomenal success of the Kirstie Kelly for Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings line since its debut in April of last year. The essence of Disney's latest heroine comes through in a gown that communicates sophistication while also being decidedly happily-ever-after. Giselle is inquisitive and romantic. She's hopeful despite the rough and tumble environment she's thrown into. And this dress speaks to her pure heart, confident resolve and love of the world around her.

    "The Giselle gown has a Manhattan-like sophistication," said Kelly. "A heroine like Giselle combines a love of nature with a sensibility for the contemporary, and this is clearly the inspiration for this very special gown."

    Alongside the Giselle gown, Disney and Kirstie Kelly will unveil twelve new gowns, each inspired by a Disney Princess including Ariel, Aurora/Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Cinderella, Snow White and Disney Princess Jasmine. Kelly brings sophistication and style to each gown through contemporary treatments and fabrications including silk chiffon, satin, taffeta and a variety of laces, with elegant accents with touches of crystals, ribbon and exquisite embroidery and delicate beadwork.

    "This new collection of gowns represents the fashion forward focus of the line," said Jim Calhoun, executive VP, global apparel, Disney Consumer Products. "Together with Kirstie's second platinum gown, the line now offers an array of possibilities and choices for brides looking to make their wedding-day dreams come true."

    In celebration of wishes coming true, Kirstie Kelly For Disney's Fairy Tale Weddingswill continue her platinum campaign wherein she will make a $125 donation to the Make–A–Wish Foundation® for each platinum gown sold.

    I read that they will not make Giselle an official Princess due to the fact that they do not want to pay Amy Adams royalties for using her likeness for the animated version of her. Do you think that this will change thier stance on that idea?

    I don't think so. She's not a princess anyway

    If it's true, probably not. The gown is an interpretation of what Amy Adams' character Giselle wore in the movie. It has nothing to do with Adams herself.

    Ohhh, that's gorgeous!
    And I think they should add Nancy to the list of princesses... Since she was the one that actually became a princess!
    For certain you must be lost to find the places that can't be found. Elseways, everyone would know where it was.

    My greatest sadness with that movie is that she didn't get to sing.... it was a travesty

    Re: Disney Adds 'Giselle' to Their Princess Bridal Gown Line

    ORDDU: Just to clarify something that seems to be mis-stated all over the place in regard to having a Giselle character out in the Disney theme parks: They do NOT have to pay Amy Adams in order to have Giselle represented out in the parks. They only have to pay her when they use her likeness in terms of MERCHANDISE, such as the recent doll that came out by Mattel. There was a limited time for Mattel to manufacture the doll, which resemembles Amy Adams. But in terms of a walk-around character at the parks, Disney is free to do whatever they want with Giselle--just as they are free to have a Mary Poppins character in the parks without having to pay royalties to Julie Andrews.

    Yeah, I wish she would have sang too.

    Though as she said, it's pretty neat that she was offered the role for her acting talents not her singing.

    Re: Disney Adds 'Giselle' to Their Princess Bridal Gown Line

    I've heard that Idina had a song in the movie that was cut, but I haven't been able to confirm in

    More on topic, I checked out the official site for the wedding gowns, and while there are for sure some very lovely ones in there, none of them actually remind me of the princesses they are supposed to represent. I can see some connections when just browsing through the site, but if they were all scrambled up and you told me to categorize them according to which princess they were, I might not be able to do it. I think someone who saw the wedding but didn't know where the dress was from wouldn't make the connection at all.
    Personally, if I were ever to cough up the money for a designer wedding gown, I'd just have to go with Vera Wang all the way. If I were the princess wedding type, I think I'd custom design my dress to remind people more of my intended princess.
