Team Of Artists Re-Imagine Disney Princesses Showing Cultural Diversity

by Elana

LaChanda Gatson is a competitive hair artist and master stylist working in Los Angeles with nearly two decades of experience beneath her belt. Her hair and make-up artistry has stretched across virtually every platform such a specialty can from film to magazines.

Recently, she paired up with a team of like-minded and equally incredibly skilled artists to bring a vision to life. Gatson says on every post, "I created this African-American Princess Series to inspire girls around the world to dream big and know dreams really do come true."

Creative Soul Photography said, "the mission was to redefine and re-imagine the traditional princess with our own dash of style, culture and swag." And did they ever! Disney princesses and icons were successfully re-imagined and the images are breathtaking.
