Truly Magical: My Beauty and the Beast Lookbook

My favorite Disney movie turns 28 today!

And just like a tale as old as time, you guys know by now that I always celebrate these magical occasions through one very magical way – dressing in Disney.

I know 28 isn’t exactly a milestone number (unless you’re Emma Swan – shout out to my fellow Once Upon a Time fans out there!). But because it’s my favorite movie, I thought I’d honor this day anyway. So I picked out characters we all know and love from this classic film and put together a few Disneybounds for you.

And now, I invite you to relax and pull up a chair, as I proudly present, my Beauty and the Beast Lookbook.

Belle

Starting this off with my favorite Princess. I wore this light blue and white linen dress over a white long sleeve shirt for her provincial look. I thought the fabric of the dress suited this perfectly, as did this old French Grammar book I got from my aunt eons ago. Also, how perfect are these pockets? For storing books and bread of course! (This is why I relate to Belle so much lol)

Lumiere

For our dashing candlestick, I obviously decided to go with shades of yellow. I wore my pale yellow button down with yellow trousers, a gold belt, gold oxfords, and to top it off for our gentlemanly host, a champagne colored bowtie. I’m just about ready to throw a party here. Don’t believe me? Ask the dishes!

“Ah, yes. When she comes in give her a dashing, debonair smile.
Come, come, show me the smile.”

 

Cogsworth

For Cogsworth, I went with brown corduroy pants, a brown button up vest, a yellow shirt to represent his gold pendulum and arms, and a purple bowband (since in some iterations of his character, he has a bit of purple in him). I also carried my Cogsworth crossbody to tie the whole look together. Nothing baroque about this look! Lol.

“Well, there’s the usual things. Flowers, chocolates, promises you don’t intend to keep.”

 

Mrs. Potts

For our dear old Mrs. Potts, I wore this white eyelet dress with a light pink cardigan, a gold belt, and a purple beret for her purple lid. I also added one of my favorite Disney bags ever – my Mrs. Potts crossbody.

“Cheer up, child. It’ll turn out all right in the end. You’ll see.”

 

Chip

And last but certainly not least, our darling little hero Chip. Although he and Mrs. Potts share the same colors, I wanted to make this look a little different and a little younger by styling a light pink sabrina cut top with a white denim skirt. I also put on my white Chip baseball cap to keep it casual.

“Are they gonna live happily ever after, Mama?”

 

Beauty and the Beast

Okay, this clearly isn’t a Disneybound but I thought I’d include it anyway because it’s basically the whole movie in a dress right? I mean, how gorgeous is this stained glass inspired piece? I’ve had it forever but I still gush every time I look at it, and I thought it would make the perfect end to this lookbook.

Because to answer Chip’s question, this dress clearly shows that they did indeed, live happily ever after.

Happy 28th Anniversary Beauty and the Beast!

Thank you for giving us a tale that will last til the end of time.
