Beauty and the Beast is a beautiful fairy tale that continues to inspire young girls everywhere. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, or if you want to rewatch it, now’s the time to find a Beauty and the Beast costume or a Belle costume and dive into the magical world of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
The 2017 live-action remake of the Disney classic is a poignant tale that made both children and adults laugh and cry. We all know the story of the unexpected romance that blooms between bookish Belle and the rugged Beast. Yet the cast and film-makers really succeeded in bringing this new movie to life. In other words, no matter how many times you’ve seen the Disney cartoon, there was nothing boring about this adaptation. The characters both look and act quite a lot like the animated originals, but, to quote one of the movie’s most famous songs, “there’s something there that wasn’t there before”.
The costume design, by the Oscar-winning costume designer Jacqueline Durran, was praised for being both true to the character designs we all know and love, but also, in a way, more modern and more suited to a 2017 audience. To quote Jacqueline Durran, “you end up with something that references the animation, but has moved on from the animation and is particular to this film.” Belle’s splendid yellow ball gown, which took 12, 000 hours to create, certainly made a splash, but as Durran herself explained, the accessories were also a huge part of what made the costumes so stunning.
