The beautiful Emma Watson as Belle, from Disney's live action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

Medium-Colored Pencil on Moonstone Canson Ingres Paper

Costume designer Jacqueline Durran chose to pay homage to Belle’s original gold ball gown while also wanting something lighter, and easier for Belle to move in. Durran and her team opted for lighter fabrics with no corset. The finished product is a lightweight combination of tulle, satin organza and taffeta, made to twirl and look as though it was styled by the castle itself.
