Say hello to one of the most iconic dresses in fairy tale history: Belle's yellow gown.
Sure, you see the golden silhouette come to life every Halloween on small girls with fantasy dreams, but you've never seen it like this before.
On March 17th, Disney releases the live-action film Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson and Luke Evans. If you were young when the 1994 animated film came out, you're probably fan-girling pretty hard right about now. And if you're also a costume design buff, you're excitement is probably double.
Oscar-winning costume designer Jacqueline Durran took on the task of recreating the animated garment from the famous dance scene in the film, and E! Style Collective has got the inside scoop.
"We ended up creating a simple dress, because what was most important was the movement of the dress. It was a very soft structure built up by with meters and meters of silk organza dyed yellow and cut broadly in a circular shape, so that it emphasized her movement," the designer stated. "For Belle, the [Swarovski] crystals were part of Garderobe's, the talking wardrobe, finishing touch to the yellow gown, when added to the dress' golden print they provided the final magical flourish."
