Blake's style is spectacular, but some of the looks that have made the biggest impact are the ones inspired by Disney's classic characters. From Cinderella to The Little Mermaid to Frozen, Blake's style has encompassed most of the Disney Vault — look back at her most magical moments here.

At the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, Blake transformed into Cinderella in every way possible. Her Vivienne Westwood Couture ball gown was a dead ringer with its voluminous skirt and embroidered bodice. She wore her hair in an updo adorned with Cinderella's signature headband. And of course, she was decked out in jewels fit for a princess, captioning an Instagram shot of her accessories, "bibbidi bobbidi bling."

Between her sparkly icy blue body-hugging gown and hair pulled back into a pony tail, she totally embodied Frozen's Elsa at the Cannes Film Festival, even writing on Instagram "Let It Glo."

Sensing a pattern here? If you couldn't guess by now, Disney was Blake's main wardrobe theme throughout the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. During the week, she also noted that she was inspired by Esméralda (from The Hunchback of Notre Dame) in her deep V-neck gown with sexy shoulder cutouts.

After attending the Michael Kors fall 2017 runway show, she thanked the designer for her 101 Dalmatians-esque black-and-white outfit and glamorous coat by signing off her Instagram caption, "Love always, Cruella."

Blake's yellow empire-waist gown worn with a denim jacket did double duty. She said her outfit helped her channel both Belle and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast.

Blake clarified that it's not just the princesses she embodies -- she can transform into villains too, doing her best Ursula (from The Little Mermaid) expression in an off-the-shoulder black gown and updo, the sea witch's style signatures.

Blake famously dyed her hair for her role in Hick in 2011, and gushed about her strawberry locks at the time, saying, "I love it. I feel like Ariel." (Debuting her new look in a seafoam Zuhair Murad mermaid-style gown didn't hurt either!)

This photo of baby Blake posing just like Ariel on a rock is clear indicator she was destined to be a Disney princess from the start.

Blake channeled Belle in her gingham blue shirt and apron. The only difference? Instead of grabbing a book, she grabbed a piping bag to ice macarons!

We never thought we'd compare Blake's gorgeous locks to The Incredibles supervillain's gravity-defying hairdo, but this shows just how deep the star's commitment to Disney characters truly is.
