The most romantic movie surprise of the coming spring will not be long in coming - very soon, in March, we will see the re-told love story of Beauty and the Beast from Disney.
The film will contain many quotes from the popular cartoon, on which several generations of fashionistas have already grown up - all the characters, characters, music, scenery and even Belle's yellow ball gown have migrated to the film. Remember this adorable outfit?
By the way, the designers worked on this wonderful dress as much as 12,000! hours, having spent 55 meters of weightless organza, 914 meters of thread and 2160 Swarovski crystals. The creative team was tasked with sewing high-quality and durable suits from fabrics created in a Fair Trade facility, that is, only from organic textiles from suppliers who pay their employees fair wages and do not harm the environment. Collaborating with Eco Age and Green Carpet Challenge, the costume design team used natural, non-toxic dyes, and the fabric was patterned using traditional wood blocks. The result is enchanting and eco-friendly outfits!
Oscar-winning costume designer Jacqueline Durran, best known for her work for Anna Karenina (2012), Atonement (2007) and Pride and Prejudice (2005), has created for all characters, and especially for actress Emma Watson, who played Belle, truly fabulous outfits.
The canary yellow, passionate cherry and sky blue dresses of the kind and gentle Beauty fully correspond to the drawn costumes from the cartoon.
The new film history promises a sea of lyrics, beauty and light. To give the shots an atmosphere of a palace holiday, huge glass chandeliers were specially designed to illuminate the ballroom, exactly repeating the design of the chandeliers of the French royal palace at Versailles.
For greater effect, the chandeliers were covered with frost-imitating glaze and draped with fabric.
But this is not the limit of decorators' imaginations. Romantic candle lights illuminate almost every frame of the film and it took 8,700 candles to get such a result!
And the lanterns, the staircase in the Castle of the Beasts and the pink colonnade on the grounds of the castle are a tribute to the avant-garde version of the fairy tale "Beauty and the Beast" (1946) by the French director Jean Cocteau, whose film became the inspiration for the author of the new film from Bill Condon, who became famous for two parts of the saga. "Twilight" and the dramatic detective "Mr. Holmes" (2015). Now Bill tried himself in the genre of a magical adventure based on an old fairy tale of the 18th century.
The new Disney film, Beauty and the Beast, is out on March 16. See you at the cinema!
