    The story involves the prince tracing his career from his early days in haute couture to the opening of his eponymous fashion house. In an appropriate fash-twist, Lacroix’s love interest is not in need of a kiss, but a makeover.

    Celebrated for his designs, we think Lacroix has the perfect hand as an illustrator – with a celebrated career journey to match. Who says we’re too old for fairy tales?
