As Belle in director Bill Condon’s new live action Disney film Beauty and the Beast, Emma Watson looks exactly the part of the princess. The 26-year-old actress stuns in a voluminous yellow gown, which truly brings Princess Belle to life on the silver screen. While you may not be trapped in an enchanted castle with the Beast, you can always capture Watson’s fairytale frock for your own special occasion. We’ve curated three inspired sunny yellow dresses, which are sure to leave you feeling like the “Belle” of every ball this spring.
1) Tideclothes Long Chiffon Bridesmaid Dress, $124: We are liking this strapless frock, which features a long, trailing hem. Meanwhile, the faux gemstone-studded bodice helps to complete the look, and bring visual interest to an otherwise understated and classic piece.
2) JS Boutique Women’s Lace and Chiffon Gown with Beads, $187: If you prefer minimalist but still want to feel like a beauty, this simple strapless number may be a fitting choice. The buttery colour complements the lace bodice, while the beaded, cinched-in waist lends a figure-flattering finish.
3) Mac Duggal Chiffon Gown, $357: With its feminine sweetheart neckline and flowing ballgown skirt, this airy gown by Mac Duggal certainly conveys princess vibes. The lightweight chiffon fabric, pastel hue and striking embellishment all create an ultra-ladylike design which is ideal for any evening galas.
