Princess Diaries, the film we watched at every childhood slumber party (and the one that put very high expectations on our 16th birthdays) is turning 15 today. (We know, shut up!) In case you haven’t seen the film (really?!), here’s a recap: Awkward teen Mia Thermopolis (played by Anne Hathaway) discovers she’s the heir to the Kingdom of Genovia and that her grandmother, Queen Clarisse, (Julie Andrews) is going to guide her into becoming a princess by the time she turns 16.
During Mia’s transformation process, the film hits upon some unforgettable style and beauty truths. So we’re celebrating its 15th anniversary with a roundup of the most memorable glam lessons that still hold true.
But in the end though, a good blowout can work in strange and mysterious ways.
