Disney celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion it has launched its Create100 auction.
The auction, raising money for Make-A-Wish, has seen 100 global creators from Christian Louboutin to Billie Eilish donate one-of-a-kind Disney-inspired pieces throughout October. And featuring fashion offerings from an archival Mark Jacobs Mickey Mouse sweater to a Cinderella-inspired Swarovski crystal slipper, it has unsurprisingly gone viral - particularly in the fashion world.
With the auction ending on 30 October, there’s still time to bid. And, with that in mind, we’ve rounded up our top fashion picks, all available to bid on now.
The Swarovski Crystal Slipper from Cinderella
Giovanna Englebert, Creative Director of Swarovski, has donated a replica of the bespoke Solid Crystal Slipper created by Swarovski for the 2015 live-action remake of Cinderella.

Beyoncé’s catsuit from Black is King
The printed catsuit worn by Beyoncé in the acclaimed Disney+ film, Black is King, has been donated to the auction. The iconic collectable piece comes in a size small, and belonged to the singer during the project which she co-wrote, executive produced, and directed.
