From "Bambi" to "Moana," many Disney and Pixar movies feature a character death that’s central to the plot. A recent study suggests that these movies can be used to help teach kids about death, and experts agree.
It’s every little girls dream to feel like a princess on her wedding day. And although the castle and horse-drawn carriage may still be ever so slightly unrealistic, Disney have now made all our dreams come true by creating a line of Disney princess wedding dresses. Japan-based wedding company Kuraudia Co and Disney have collaborated in order to create a line of dreamy dresses that will transform you into your childhood idol for your special day. The collection boasts 14 designs, inspired by six different princesses: Belle, Ariel, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, and of course, Cinderella.

With “Beauty and the Beast” premiering on March 17, everyone’s got the Disney princess on the brain … including Leslie Mann. The actress hit the Oscars red carpet with husband of 20 years Judd Apatow in an almost identical gown to Belle’s. The chartreuse number was designed by Zac Posen — and his inspiration seemed obvious. While Mann looked a lot like Belle, others compared best actress nominee Emma Stone to another “Beauty and the Beast” character, Lumière, the candlestick, in her gold, glittering Givenchy gown.

Bonjour!
Her fitted dress with an A-line skirt and puff sleeves was the quintessential casual look of the decade, alongside the little pillboxes hats that she was prone to wearing when not adorned with a big bow. The polka dots that sometimes covered her dresses have been in and out of fashion throughout the centuries, but it wouldn’t be out of line to say that Minnie had a hand in bringing them back. When it comes to patterns, polka dots are the most whimsical and carefree, and they certainly have a child-like characteristic about them — it’s no surprise that clowns love them! The design was initially popular in the late 1800′s, and surely it was Minnie’s stylish ways and playful allure that made it the pattern of the 1950’s. The look was the perfect compliment to the “peachy keen, jelly bean” attitude of the wholesome, all-American family.

Alcohol awareness campaigners have expressed concerns that the drink, which comes in a champagne-esque bottle with a cork, could normalise or glamourise drinking alcohol and subsequently encourage underage drinking. “Too often alcohol is sold as if it was a normal commodity and alcohol-like products are used to entice people into the world of alcohol,” Jackie Ballard, Chief Executive of Alcohol Concern told Mashable.
