The Princess Bride—the epic cult classic that had such a place in the childhood hearts of so many—turns 25 today. To celebrate its birthday, the film has just been released for the first time on Blu Ray (you can nab one here!), and we’re reminded yet again that the era of the princess is upon us this year. The 1987 journey of Westley (played by Cary Elwes) and the Princess Bride herself, Buttercup (Robin Wright)—flash-forward, here’s what the pair look like now—has inspired us to peruse all our favorite princess moments from 2012 and compile a mega-list fit for royalty.

Princesses-in-training take note: In keeping with Cinderella’s big year, DSW has launched a collection of evening and wedding-appropriate pumps inspired by the fairy-tale character’s signature footwear. Out today, the line ranges from simple beaded white satin pumps ($90) to glitter-encrusted magenta sparklers ($60) that Disney’s 1950 princess might have traded in her glass slippers for. Priced from $60 to $90, the shoes are available on dsw.com. Fairy godmother not included.

2012 is the year of the fairytale—especially for Cinderella. Thanks to the Blu-Ray release of the 1950 classic (available in stores October 2nd), the blonde songbird in blue has been scooping up a ton of fashionable promotions, including a Sephora makeup set, nail polish in her signature robin’s egg hue, and the latest, “glass slippers” designed for the masses, available at DSW this fall. Plus, the Rodgers and Hammerstein treatment of her fairytale (originally starring Julie Andrews) is making its way to Broadway at the start of next year. She’s unstoppable!

Cinderella is having a stylish year! Not long after Christian Louboutin gave her glass slippers a couture revamp, Sephora teamed up with Disney to create a limited-edition collection inspired by the princess. We got a sneak peek at the lineup, and we’re loving the regal perfume, four-shadow palette, and compact mirror, shown here. Also included: A six-piece nail polish set, four lipsticks, a roll-on fragrance, and a 20-shade palette inspired by the colors used in the animated film, all of which will land in stores this October. Plus, Sephora will roll out two more Disney princess-inspired collections, so be on the lookout for those in spring 2013 and fall 2014.

Christian Louboutin is putting his magic touch on Cinderella’s glass slippers! The French designer was commissioned by Disney to create his own version of the iconic shoes for the classic cartoon’s DVD re-launch this summer, WWD reports. “I have been so lucky to have crossed paths with Cinderella, an icon who is so emblematic to the shoe world as well as the dream world,” he said. The slippers won’t be revealed until July, but we’re guessing Louboutin’s update on the fairytale footwear will include red soles and sexy stiletto heels. What will Prince Charming think?
