Being a Disney Princess is good when you’re living in a fairy-tale world filled with princes, dragons, fictional heroes, and sweet fluffy love stories. But what if they lived in the real world? They would still be fierce, beautiful, and kind-hearted, but with a modern twist. Matt Burt, a graphic designer, wanted to depict Disney Princesses as powerful larger-than-life characters worthy of the royal title in ways that don’t include being born into a royal family and spending all your life in a wealthy environment. He envisions them as empowered modern women building successful careers and having real impact on the world around them. Here are Disney Princesses reimagined as modern women.
