Pink Princess is a subaesthetic of Princesscore. It is a traditionally feminine aesthetic, heavily influenced by the Rococo era, the late Victorian era, and the 1950s and early 1960s. It emphasizes girlish innocence and has a nostalgic and often romanticized view of the past. Those who follow the Pink Princess aesthetic are inspired by real life princesses like Marie-Antoinette as well as those who have reached a princess-like level of wealth.

Pink Princess is the combination of Rococo and Vintage Parisian. Visually, pink princess is very similar to Romantic Academia, although it is not an academic aesthetic. The color palette is heavy on pink tones combined with gold, white, or cream, with other pastel colors being slightly less common. Silver is sometimes used, but is much less common than gold.

Philosophy

Pink Princess aesthetic embodies the philosophy of "Take your pleasure seriously" a phrase widely spread on tumblr after laduree-et-cigarettes answered an ask about it. Self love and treating oneself, especially in the form of luxuriating in the bathtub and sleeping, are a large part of this philosophy.

Additionally, the Pink Princess aesthetic encourages kindness, generosity, and compassion, despite being a wealth related aesthetic. Many bloggers emphasize that their content is not meant for homophobes, transphobes, and those who do not support the Black Lives Matter movement.
