Who is the girliest of them all?
Some people debate over this but here's my opinion. By the way I think all the princesses are feminine, if they weren't they wouldn't be added to the lineup.
In my opinion, she's the most tomboyish. She's the only princess I'd describe as masculine. She climbs trees, she jumps off cliffs and she's very athletic. Pocahontas' playful and mischievious in a boyish way. She prefers to go off playing in the woods rather doing her people's equivalent of housework. The thing is, when Pocahontas does these tomboyish things, she's doing them by choice. All the rough stuff she does are done by her own free will which brings me to the next princess.
Everyone says that Mulan is the tomboy of the group and I don't agree. She's not necessarily a girly girl, at all, I but don't think she's a tomboy either. Mulan's manly actions are done when, she's disguised as Ping and had no choice, otherwise she'd blow her cover. If you ask me, she seems to be just as uncomfortable in the armor as she is in the matchmaker dress. Mulan is a tomboy only by comparison to other women. To be fair during her time period what was considered feminine was alot more limiting.
Probably the perfect example of "girly tomboy". If you forget about Rapunzel's appearance, personality wise she isn't all that feminine. I think what Disney's doing with the princesses nowadays is trying to make them a good blend of tomboy and girly girl so she can appeal to everyone. We all know Rapunzel's pretty much the blend of all the princesses. So the people who want a traditional, classic, and feminine princess can be happy and so can the people who want a modern, edgy, tomboyish princess.
Now this one isn't so much the presence of tomboyishness but really the absence of girliness. Tiana's only a tomboy by comparison to Lottie. Her feminity sort of shines through her warbrobe. She doesn't seem to be that into fashion or anything like that. Except for that at the very end, she never wears a pretty outfit on her own. They're either magically acquired or given to her by a friend. Her outfits of choice are more practical or not very dressy. Tiana was really the hardest princess to place.
She's definitely the least girly of the original six princesses. She's very active and athletic but still hopelessly romantic. A good example of a tomboyish girl with a girly personality. Though she clearly enjoys wearing them, she doesn't wear pretty outfits on her own. They're all given to her by Carlotta. Who's to say how she would dress if she weren't royalty. But then again Ariel is very much into her appearance, especially her hair and she's very aware of her beauty. She can hold her own against a shark so there.
I think it's odd that we just assume that all the ethnic princesses are tomboys. The only tomboyish thing about Jasmine is that she wears pants. She is feminine but not extremely so, like Ariel. I guess she has a very masculine personality but she doesn't really do anything to be considered a tomboy. Hell, her weapon of choice agianst Jafar is seduction, the most feminine weapon of all. There is that one scene where she jumps rooftops but for the most part, Jasmine is just as girly as any other princess.
Alot of people tend to think Belle made her debut before Ariel because she's closer to the more feminine traditional princess. She's easily the girliest Disney Heroine within Renaissance, though Jane comes pretty close. Though one could consider her a tomboy, as she is an outcast for reading books rather than doing what is normal for women of that time. Also in comparison to other females in the film, she is rather tomboyish. Belle was also hard to place, she isn't a girly girl, she's just a bookworm.
Certainly the most masculine out of the Classics Princesses, though that REALLY isn't saying much. Cinderella is just less girly when compared to the other two classics. She's quite feminine but in a very subtle way. I think that's one of the reasons why she's a favorite of many. She's a very girly girl but not so sugary sweet ot the point where it's unbearable. She is forced to live in conditons most women would have a problem where as most men would not. Cinderella is alot more cool and laid back than the average princess.
9.Tomboy/2.Girly Girl-Snow White
She is the very first princess so of course she has to be very girly. Snow White's dream is to marry a prince, that's considered to be a very feminine ambition. Not to mention she enjoys picking flowers in her spare time. Even her body language screams femininity. Though, I would say she is more like the innocent one rather than THE girly one but she still very much a girly girl. Some people would say Snow White is the most feminine but I think one princess is just alittle more girly.
Obviously, I think everybody can agree that Aurora is the most feminine princess. She is very romantic and has rather girly ambitions. All she wants is to fall in love with a prince she met in her dreams, there's nothing wrong with that. Also her appearance contributes alot to her girliness, long blond hair, pink lips and dainty feet. I think Aurora is the best example of a traditional princess, she's classy, sweet, kind, refined and of course very feminine.
