In this year’s live action BATB remake, Belle will have a brand new ‘royal celebration’ ballgown. Too bad that animated Belle never got one for her grand finale: unlike Emma Watson, in her film she has to make do with donning the yellow dress again.
I want to imagine that in this very moment, she sees Aladdin/Prince Ali drowning. She then swims to him, tries to lift him up to the surface, but he is chained to the iron ball and therefore too heavy. But while doing this she accidentally rubs the lamp, Genie appears, and then… (goes on for eternity!) X,D
Did another one! :D It was much harder to do, and I also realized that Ariel has a HUGE head (so Flounder looks enormous beside Belle). I also experimented with the water shadow thingy things (what are they even called?!).
Charlotte La Bouff in perhaps the most iconic dress in the history of cinema that even has its own Wikipedia page. The William Travilla’s sartorial masterpiece definitely played its role in building Marilyn’s everlasting screen persona.
A fellow Grace Kelly fan, theawesomeprincess, has recently called my attention to a fact no Disney/classic Hollywood aficionado can fail to see: Cinderella looks strikingly similar to the Princess of Monaco.
I used to wonder whether Cinderella was actually modelled after Grace. But the dates don’t add up: Grace Kelly would only get a big break in Hollywood in late 1952, and Cinderella was produced in 1949. The truth is, Cinderella was actually modelled after a professional live action model Helene Stanley. And yet…
In this manip, Cinderella is wearing a famous black and white dress designed by Edith Head for ‘Rear Window’ - just like Grace.
By the by, the fact that Edith was not nominated by the Academy for this film’s costume design is beyond me.
