Oyster Fashion: ‘Pure Heart’ Shot By Daphne Nguyen

Cursed child.

Daphne Nguyen

Actual angel Phoebe Combes stars as Princess Aurora, in ‘Pure Heart’. The story comes as the result of a fantasy dress up for Oyster 117: The Unreal Issue. Created with the help of Disney, who clued us in on the lush wardrobe and beauty behind this beguiling character, to celebrate the release of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (in cinemas now!) and, as a result, give us high-key inspo on how to slay Halloween season this year.

A cursed child,
Try not to fall asleep.
Be wary of sharps,
And royal boys with rings.
Find the pixies in the dark,
But who do you love?

Now Queen of the Moors,
With innocence lost,
A new found angst.
A pure heart still
blooms from the ground.
