What is the best compliment you’ve received recently? Tough time remembering? Not for me. Mine was the last time I wore this dress. I was at a dinner party and someone told me that I looked like a Disney princess. I mean, is there any better compliment than that?! What little girl didn’t grow up wanted to look like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty or Belle. (Am I aging myself by not saying Elsa or Anna?) Granted, most of us have probably grown out of our princess aspirations. Clearly, I have not. The flattery sent my heart (and eyelashes) aflutter and I have been looking for another opportunity to wear the royal regalia ever since. And where better a place than a photo shoot at the abandoned zoo in Griffith Park? I love contrasts and I couldn’t be more pleased with how my princess dress contrasted with the lion enclosure. The Lion King meets Princess Jasmine. I even brought along my own little lion, Pip, to make the whole thing more realistic. Because I am nothing if not a realist.
