Rococo Belle by suburbanbeatnik Rococo Belle by suburbanbeatnik
Here's Belle, the winner of my "historically accurate Disney princess" poll! She's wearing a 1779-1780 robe de cour, based on one worn by Marie Josephine of Savoy. I left off the train, and gave her a softer 1780s English hairstyle, like what you'd see from a Gainsborough portrait, since that seemed more suitable to her character, and closer in feel to my previous 1780s Belle piece. [link]

It was a bit of a challenge coming up with a dress that was similar in feeling to the design in the original Beauty and the Beast, but I'm pleased with what I came up with. I know that ball gown was supposed to be gold, but it looks banana yellow. I prefer this style to what she wore in the film, but hey I've always been a big 18th century fan, if you couldn't tell...

In my Art history Class we briefly talked about this period. My teacher doesn't like it much, but I think it is more because it was harder to make out what was going on.

I kind of like the softness of the style. It's different from the Renaissance style and also Baroque. Is this more because of where the film was located? I heard Rococo was more in France though it was in others.

But she is very lovely. She actually has that softness, but yet she doesn't seem soft in actual sense. She looks like a curious girl, a girl that enjoys reading and seems strong somewhat. Wonderful.
