Cinderella's Gown Throughout the Decades

After a recent visit to Cinderella on Broadway starring Carly Rae Jepsen and Fran Drescher, we got to thinking: Finding Prince Charming is great but this fairytale is all about the dress.

    Julie Andrews in Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella (1957)

    Rodgers and Hammerstein created their Cinderella starring Julie Andrews for a CBS television special. According to IMDB, two completely different designs were worn by Andrews. The traditional tulle ball gown, pictured here, was reportedly never used for anything more than publicity stills as it was "dismissed as too big and heavy to utilize through all the live broadcast maneuvers." A more fitted white dress was worn instead, beginning the constant back-and-forth between Cinderella's blue and white gowns.
