You're reading: Sleeping Beauty awakens – to another princess’ kiss
Popular
on social media

The object of the game that started Aug. 22 in
National Art Museum of Ukraine was for someone — presumably, but not necessarily, a man — to kiss one of five
Ukrainian Sleeping Beauties. If she woke up, they would get married, or so the updated version of the fairytale went.

One of them did wake up on Sept. 6. But the awakening came after the lips of another woman — a princess, not a prince — landed on Sleeping Beauty’s forehead.

Sleeping Beauty Yana Gurzhiy, a 24-year
hairstylist, opened her eyes to Kyiv Mohyla Academy student Katya
Kopylenko, who is two years younger. Gurzhiy says she couldn’t
tell she was being kissed by a woman. “I decided that I will open
my eyes to anyone who kissed me somewhere on the face besides the
lips.” And Kopylenko planted one on Gurzhiy’s forehead.
