The Desi Disney Princess You Need To Follow, STAT!

Natasha Patel , 26 Mar 2018

To believe in a fairytale isn’t too hard. Disney made that possible by creating beautiful, fierce and strong women that bring something magical to each character of the movie they represent. More often than not, they’re the source of inspiration for young girls all over the world.

Speaking of world, let’s head to North Carolina and meet Hamel Patel. A model and makeup artist with an Instagram following of 40K, and spectacular talent for recreating the most popular Disney Princesses with an Indian twist. Her idea to mix our Indian culture into these iconic Disney personalities (we all grew up knowing and loving) is pretty damn incredible. Check it out…

Snow White from Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs
