Stay strong, Disneyphiles, your wait is almost over—the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast is less than a month away. In the meantime, the hype for this thing is only growing. And star Emma Watson, no stranger to hype, is doing her part to drive the fans even more insane. On Thursday night, the movie had its London premiere, and Watson showed up to the red carpet in a truly stunning gown that seemed clearly Disney-inspired. Can you see it?
She looks like Cinderella!
And it wasn't just the neckline. Check out the yardage on the bottom.
Interestingly, Watson was once offered the title role in Disney's live-action Cinderella remake, but turned it down. She explained why in a recent interview with Total Film magazine.
I didn't know they were going to make Beauty And The Beast at the time I turned down Cinderella. But when they offered me Belle, I just felt the character resonated with me so much more than Cinderella did. She remains curious, compassionate and open-minded. And that's the kind of woman I would want to embody as a role model, given the choice.
Emma Watson has never shied away from publicly making principled decisions. She did the same with this dress, which Elle reports was designed by Emilia Wickstead and made with sustainable fabrics. And that's the sort of thing that makes Watson very happy.
