Tiana gets a fancy blue dress. On a side note, since it took place in The Roaring Twenties, that color would have been seen as more feminine than Charlotte's wardrobe.

Sleeping Beauty played with this by making fairies have a color war over making Aurora's dress blue or pink. It stays blue for most of the movie.

Cinderella's dress is blue mainly in stuff outside the movie. The dress was meant to be silver (although the glass slippers were blue tinted), but coloring issues made appear blue. Her nightgown was definitely blue.

From tvtropes.org

Blue is a common color to represent femininity. Thus a girl or woman wearing blue is a sign that she is fair and gentle (to certain limits).
This could have started at least as far back as ancient Greece and Rome, and even why the Virgin Mary is often depicted in a blue robe. The logic was that blue symbolizes peace, serenity, kindness, and other such aspects that were considered womanly virtues. And from the early to mid 20th century, some argued that blue should be the color for girls, and red should be the color for boys. And even though we ended up with Pink Girl, Blue Boy after World War II, putting a woman in blue is still considered a sign of her femininity, if not as obvious as colors like pink and purple.
This can apply to any feminine woman at any age, some more than others, like a Winter Royal Lady.
Now blue can have other meanings, such as sadness and loneliness. Those can overlap with this trope (as in representing both femininity and sadness).
