Though the fairy tale is timeless, Powell was aiming for the look of “a nineteenth-century period film made in the 1940s or ’50s,” she says. Cinderella’s stepsisters sport the yellow and pink of 1950s sorority sisters. “They are meant to be totally ridiculous on the outside—a bit too much and overdone—and ugly on the inside,” Powell says. Dressing Cinderella herself, meanwhile, required a subtle rethinking of the tale’s traditional iconography. “I didn’t want her in rags, as she is often portrayed in the storybooks,” Powell explained. “What I gave her instead is a dress that starts out pretty and ends up looking faded, tired, and worn out.”


Hi, everyone! My name is Sarah, and I will be taking over Holliday Grainger Fan from Ana. I’ve previously donated content to this site in the form of screencaps, and I’m happy to be continuing Ana’s hard work. I currently run Emilie de Ravin Fan, Lindsey Morgan Fan, All that Jazz Gallery, and Scifi Caps, so if you wanted to check those sites I wouldn’t be opposed!

Also, I thought since you’re getting a new owner that it was time for a new theme! I hope you enjoy it. I decided to have one made with my favorite Holliday photo shoot. Thanks to Velvet Dreams for our new theme!
