Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott at the “Aladdin” Los Angeles Premiere

Posted on May 22, 2019

As we’ve noted before, these two are out there working a VERY on-point “Princess and the Pauper” vibe in their promotional style; with her in some fairly extravagant gowns and him in some stylishly interesting but decidedly less formal menswear. They’re neatly avoiding any cliches or sense that they’re stepping out in costumes or in character, but there’s a distinct underlining of thematically appropriate character-based points going on here. The Disney promo machine at work.

His hair is absolutely gorgeous and we love that he’s been playing with it throughout this tour. We give him credit for not defaulting to boring men’s suiting, but this looks a bit distractingly itchy. We have no idea what those textiles actually feel like, but they’re so textural-looking that it comes off a bit overwhelming. The combination of color-blocking and that pointillist effect, whatever it is, is a bit too much for picture-taking. We say keep the jacket but tone things down with a more neutral shirt.

 

She’s serving up princess-adjacent realness; overwhelming us with a big skirt and a lot of pink but not really lapsing into any sort of Elle Fanning-like cosplay, which wouldn’t suit her. There’s a modernity to this princess and we don’t think that impression is an accidental one on our parts. The dress design is just a tiny bit goofy and we could’ve done without the cutout, but it’s definitely eye-catching and unique.

 

See? These two know how the Disney promo game is played.
