If you didn't know already, I'm a huge Disney fan! I loved watching the movies growing up (Aladdin, Cinderella, Mulan) and I still watch them whenever a new one comes out (like Tangled or Frozen). When I heard that Disney was releasing a movie from the point of view of Sleeping Beauty's villain, Maleficent, I knew it was something I had to see. It's a dark, twisted take on a tale that we all know, and I can't wait to get my hands on my ticket!
The film comes out on Friday, May 30th.
Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) has been called one of the most sinister Disney villains and for good reason (who places a curse on an innocent baby?), but in this film we get to see how and why Maleficent became the evil woman we all know. As the saying goes, "Evil isn't born. It's made." Someone close to her betrayed her, thereby turning her pure heart cold.
For a bit of sex appeal, wear a little black cropped sweater, a textured black dress, a feather ear cuff, and tall dark olive-colored wedges. Go for a rock-meets-glam look by wearing a spiked headband (like Maleficent's horns), a black dress with ruffles at the bottom, red lipstick, and strappy black heels.
Aurora (Elle Fanning) is the young princess who is cursed by Maleficent as a baby to one day prick her finger on a spindle and fall into a deep sleep, but she's taken away from the palace to live with three fairies, who call her Briar Rose. She's raised to be a kind young woman, who has a bond with the animals in the forest, but Maleficent has other plans for her.
For a modern, casual look, wear an olive cardigan, light blue maxi dress, green belt, gold cuff, and strappy pointed flats. Or try something a little more dressed up: a sky blue high-low dress, blue necklace, brown belt, stone cuff, rose ring, and emerald bow wedges.
The fairies (though in the new movie they're pixies) are friends of the King and Queen. After Maleficent curses Princess Aurora, the baby is sent to live with the three fairies, Knotgrass (Imelda Staunton), Thistlewit (Juno Temple), and Flittle (Lesley Manville) until after her sixteenth birthday, which is when they know she'll be save.
Wear this fun and feminine outfit: a floral headband, a yellow flower necklace, a lace and mint green dress, and nude bow heels. For a fairy-like look, put on a silver beaded headband, a blue floral necklace, a white lace dress, a silver cuff, and blue gladiator sandals.
