You know that feeling when you see poofs and poofs of tulle? Or how jazzed you get at the very sight of sequins? This is how we feel when we see certain red carpet gowns that remind us of our favorite fairy tales.
Aside from Kate Middleton‘s ultimate fairy-tale-come-to-life Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown, some of Hollywood’s leading ladies often look like they’ve stepped out of a story.
Take Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Ralph Lauren dress at the 1999 Academy Awards. There was no one else like her on the carpet that night, because she stood out. And what about Olivia Wilde at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards? Poof Poof Poof, we’ve got a fairy tale look.
Sure, these women might look dainty, but they’re all wearing very sharp stilettos, so don’t try anything with that crossbow of yours, knight.
