Rai ScenesEdit


  • In the Italian Version, Bloom uses her powers to cut her dress shorter, since she could not find a pair of sissors, but instead starts a fire.
  • In the RAI version, Bloom questions Stella and Flora why they're attending Alfea. Stella wants to become a universally admired fairy as well as wanting to bring back together estranged lovers, starting with her divorced parents (which is possibly why she was bonded in Season 2 to, Amore the pixie of Love). Flora wants to become a real fairy as well, but she also loves to learn, which results in her getting a pillow smack from Stella for 'giving such a dorky answer'(RAI version). Bloom has no idea what she is doing there as her finding out she is a magical being is still a big shock to her, so at the moment she still does not know what direction her life will turn towards to.
  • In the 4Kids version when Stella is about to pay for Bloom's first dress choice Flora reminds her that she maxed out her credit card. In the RAI version Flora tells Stella not to offer to pay for the dress because she might offend Bloom.
  • In both the 4Kids and RAI versions Stella's line about the dress is that same! She tells the other Winx that that dress was calling: Buy Me! Buy me please!
  • Bloom is the only one to transform, it's also the first time she ever transforms and the first time we see her transformed.
  • In the RAI version, Stella was laughing at Bloom because of her failed attempt to change her hair color, as she made her bangs stand on end.
  • This episode was cut out of Nicks One-Hour Special.
  • In the 4kids version, the Snake-rats were called "Swamp-Rats."


  • Stella, Bloom, Flora, Musa and Tecna:
    • What is once was, let it be again: To return something to it's original
  • Darcy:
    • Verdigo: Creates dizziness
  • Icy:
    • Icy prison: Creates icebeams that capture someone
    • Frostbite: Artic breath.
    • Ice berg: To create an ice berg


  • When Blooms asks Flora how she looks, her crown from her transformation is seen, but she is not transformed.
  • When in formal wear, Stella's headband keeps changing colours.
  • When Bloom finds the store with the sale, the sales lady is the same as the one who was in the store where she found the yellow dress.
  • When we see Icy from the back, she looks like she's wearing a sleeveless polo shirt. However, from the front, the shoulders of the shirt are far too narrow to make that possible. This stays so for the rest of the series.
