    20 Times Disney Princess Movies Straight-Up Lied To Us About Fashion

    A dinglehopper does not make a good brush, people.

    1. When they made us believe a fork makes a good hairbrush.

    Disney

    We've all tried to repeat this at some point, much to our parents' disgust and amusement.

    2. When they made dress construction look magically easy.

    Disney

    The fairies would have killed on Project Runway.

    3. Same goes with alterations.

    Sure, they were magical speaking mice and birds, but still...

    4. When the shoe always fit perfectly.

    Disney

    They don't. More lies.

    5. When they made us believe we could give ourselves flawless haircuts.

    Disney

    They should have put a disclaimer — "Do not try this at home. — at the end of this scene, tbh.

    6. When picking the perfect accessory was easy as pie.

    Disney

    If only a gold tiara could pull every outfit together.

    7. When they made accentuating one's waist look so simple.

    Disney

    Lies, lies, lies.

    8. When a simple shimmy was all it took to look perky again.

    Disney

    So not the case.

    9. When lipstick and eyeliner went on perfectly in one brush stroke.

    Disney

    This never happens.

    10. When they lied about what wind does to hair.

    Disney

    11. And then lied again about hair and water.

    Disney

    So many childhood memories of trying to recreate the moment in the pool.

    12. When they acted like hat hair wasn't a thing.

    Disney

    Apparently hoods and hats magically float a few centimeters away from Disney characters' hair.

    13. When getting the perfect braid was a walk in the park.

    14. When Disney had us believe a hair fix was this obvious and simple.

    Disney

    15. When runny mascara came off in a millisecond.

    Disney

    Charlotte sure knew how to take it from hot mess to hot in no time at all.

    16. When gorgeous gowns grew in the sea.

    Disney

    L

    17. When finding the perfect wedding dress was as easy as kissing the groom.

    Disney

    In reality, the joy of wedding dress shopping begins and dies at David's Bridal.

    18. When Disney made changing outfit colors look so easy.

    Disney

    Who doesn't have an item of clothing they love but wish were another color?

    19. When makeup removal didn't require elbow grease.

    Disney

    Mulan's sleeves must have been constructed of makeup-removing wipes. Only explanation.

    20. And finally, when makeovers didn't require 11 hours and five trained professionals.

    Although sometimes they got it right. But only sometimes.
