Decoding The Fairytale For Each 'PLL' Prom Dress

The moment every Pretty Little Liars fan has waited for is almost here. In just one week's time (that's right, I said ONE WEEK, folks!), Charles' identity will finally be revealed, allowing the Liars and viewers to finally be able to put a face to the name. But before we come fAce to fAce with the show's ultimate nemesis, there is still one major event that has to happen first. Of course, I'm referring to the highly anticipated PLL fairytale-themed prom, which we all know Charles is sure to attend. And while it should come as no surprise that the girls look absolutely gorgeous in their uniquely-themed gowns, it's left up to us (at least for now) to decide which fairytale character each Liar is supposed to be dressed as.

Granted, some of the ensembles are easier to figure out than others. But given that this is PLL we're talking about, nothing was ever going to be completely straightforward. So while we wait for A's inevitable unmasking, I thought we'd use what little time we have left to try and match the fairytale character with each individual Liar (with the help of PLL costume designer, Mandi Line). After all, this show may not be known for its happy endings, but that doesn't mean prom won't prove to be a magical evening we won't soon forget.

Aria = Snow White

Between the blue top and red bow, it seems pretty clear that Aria will be going as Snow White. She just may want to think twice before ingesting any sort of fruit throughout the course of the dance. You know, just to be on the safe side.

Hanna = Rapunzel

Aside from the boots, which I'll admit is a bit of a head scratcher, Hanna's sparkly dress may give off a very distinct Cinderella-esque vibe to some in its overall appearance. However, Mandi Line confirmed on her Instagram account that Hanna and her beautiful long locks would be depicting Tangled's Rapunzel at prom. And hey, if that makes Caleb her Flynn Rider then I am ALL for it.

Emily = The Evil Queen

Though I'm sure there are some out there who will argue that Emily looks more like Maleficent rather than the Evil Queen, I think the head attire pretty much speaks for itself on this one. Maleficent has always been known for her horn-like headdress, yet Emily is clearly wearing a crown in these images. And while Emily doesn't appear to have an evil bone in her body, we don't need a magic mirror to tell us that Shay Mitchell truly is one of the "fairest of them all."

Spencer = Ariel

This one is, by far, the hardest to solve. But given the seashells that can be seen in Spencer's hair throughout some of the photos, Ariel really is the safest bet here. Sure, she's missing the red hair and I can't ever recall Ariel wearing a green dress (unless that color is meant to represent her green fins?), but I still think Spencer is giving off a definite mermaid vibe in this dress. Plus, the idea of Toby being her Prince Eric is just too good of an image to deny.

Mona = Little Red Riding Hood

I mean, I think the red cape kinda says it all, don't you agree?

Alison = Belle

There's simply no mistaking that beautiful, golden dress. Let's just hope that her encounter with this version of the "beAst" leads to a happily ever after ending as well… though I'm not holding my breath.

But regardless of what end ups happening during this big A showdown, I think we can all agree that the Liars' wardrobes are on fleek. (Though did we really expect anything less?) For more Pretty Little Liars, check out Bustle's podcast Taking This One To The Grave.
