Australia / 26 March 2015


Once upon a time in a faraway land there was a tiny kingdom that was peaceful, prosperous, and rich in romance and tradition. Here in a stately chateau, there lived a widowed gentleman and his little daughter, Cinderella, who soon found herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Through all the hardships, Cinderella remained ever so gentle and kind. For each dawn she found new hope that someday her dreams of happiness would finally come true.

Today The Land of Lavish enters a dazzling dream with a timeless story, ‘Cinderella’. It is a beautiful tale cherished by myself and people of all ages across the world as it inspires us to dream, imagine and believe. And above all, have courage and be kind. 

In an enchanted field blossoming with buttercream dandelion flowers and wishes, I have transformed into a modern princess Ella to honour Disney’s Cinderella 2015 premiere this week in Australia. With layers of lavender blue tulle, sparkling jewels and a stunning glass slipper, it makes a very lavish style story. I dance, cheer, laugh and twirl in a tiered ASOS tutu skirt, off-the-shoulder white bodysuit from Miss Selfridge and jewel encrusted sandals from ASOS. A whirlwind of glistening light follows me with my Swarovski crystal clutch, clip-on earrings and cocktail ring. For extra sparkle, I added crystals to my golden locks. The Cinderella Glass Slipper by Arribas is an extraordinary solid crystal that I will treasure for years to come. This is what dreams are really made of.

You are cordially invited to enter the magical world of Cinderella and watch my above short film inspired by the classic tale. I hope this story inspires you to watch with glittering eyes the beauty around you, and to never cease to dream and embody sparkle. There was so much more to the “ragged servant girl” as described by her wicked stepmother, and after midnight was where the magic started. Like Cinderella, everyone deserves their happily ever after.

With Love, Liana
