Created by Jacqueline Durran, an Academy Award-winning costume designer, the costumes for all the characters in the movie were meticulously crafted. The most challenging piece was Belle’s iconic ball gown, as fans adored her classic yellow dress from the animated film. Countless conversations were held about its appearance, color, and fabric in order to recreate the beloved look for the live-action adaptation.

Jacqueline explained that the dress in our film was chosen to be yellow as a tribute to the animated version. The goal was to put a unique spin on it by incorporating more details and making it look like a realistic outfit. The final dress was made from numerous layers of lightweight satin organza in a yellow hue (a total of 180 feet), cut in a wide circular shape, and stitched together using 3,000 feet of thread.
