It’s one thing to play a Disney princess on Broadway, but it’s another to truly be one in real life, and Courtney Reed is just that. The "Aladdin" star has won over our hearts since the show’s opening over two years ago, and continues to give us the best Jasmine vibes both on and off stage. From her stunning fashion to bubbly personality to obvious abundance of talent, it’s no surprise that Reed has become one of our favorite Broadway princesses! Here are our top four reasons why we love having Reed as part of our whole new world!
1. The Fashion
Something we love about Reed is her constant ability to try out new looks and nail them. Whether she’s walking the red carpet, giving an interview or just going out with friends, Reed delivers the most stunning looks, from her hair to makeup to outfit to shoes. We love that she’s never afraid to change up her style or try on a bold look, and just scrolling through her Instagram (@Rhodesreed) shows how gorgeous her fashion style is.
Speaking of fashion, we cannot get enough of Reed’s line of customized chokers! That’s right: not only is she playing Jasmine on Broadway eight times a week, but she’s hand making her line of chokers too! Literally #goals. The chokers come in an array of styles such as Broadway themed (like one of our favorites called “Palace Walls”) and seasonal, such as “Hocus Pocus,” “Pumpkin Pie,” “Tinsel,” and “Santa Baby.” Check out www.GaggedChokers.com for all of the latest and hottest styles!
3. That Squad
Taylor Swift has nothing on Reed’s squad. For anyone who has attended one of Feinstein/54 Below’s Broadway Princess Parties, you know just how close-knit and stunning this group of leading ladies is. We love getting to see Reed perform and play amongst her fellow Broadway princesses including Laura Osnes, Sierra Boggess, Mara Davi, Samantha Massell, Adrienne Warren, Teal Wicks and Melanie Moore. If you haven’t heard of the Broadway Princess party, check them out on YouTube today! You certainly won’t regret it.
4. That Voice
When it comes down to it, Reed truly won us over with her phenomenal voice. There’s a reason why she’s been playing Jasmine for over two years, and we are so glad that we’ve gotten the chance to see her soar on that flying carpet. The future is so bright for Reed, and we can’t wait to see where her journey takes her.
