Who’s excited about the upcoming remake of Beauty and the Beast? As you may know, none other than Emma Watson will star as the iconic Belle. We’ve already been privy to a sneak peek of the costumes and have reveled in the first amazing trailer. Now we also have some deeper intel about Belle’s outfits, courtesy of the movie’s costume designer, Jacqueline Durran.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Durran explained Watson had very specific ideas about what Belle would—and would not—be wearing in the film. “For Emma, it was important that the dress was light and that it had a lot of movement,” Durran told EW. “In Emma’s reinterpretation, Belle is an active princess. She did not want a dress that was corseted or that would impede her in any way.” We’re all about this modern take on the story—girl power, anyone?—and we’re counting down the days until the March 17, 2017, premiere date.

For the new live-action remake, that's changing in a BIG way. Click the link in our bio for all the details. ????: Laurie Sparham/Disney
