The Beauty and the Beast premiered in Shanghai, China on Monday, and from the looks of their Instagrams and premiere snapshots, the cast were having an amazing time.
The Belle of the ball of course was Emma Watson, 26, who looked incredible wearing a caped nude embellished stunning Elie Saab gown, complete with an enchanting cape. She’s playing Belle in the adaptation of the Disney fairy tale.
Made from 15 meters of tulle and embroidered with silk thread, sequins, beads and stones, the dress was made from left-over fabric from a previous Elie Saab Haute Couture collection. According to Emma’s eco-fashion Instagram, The Press Tour, the dress also had five meters of illusion tulle and four meters of crepe georgette silk.
Her red lips and soft brown eye make-up was completely flawless, she wore her brunette locks in loose curls and co-star Dan Stevens who plays both the Beast and the handsome prince, made sure he matched his maroon tie for the occasion.
Emma appeared in high spirits as her global promotional tour continued, soon removing her veil like cape to reveal her shoulders.
The movie adaptation of the famous fairy tale follows the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle.
Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
