The fabric of Belle’s gown in “Beauty and the Beast”
Before the dress could be made Durran was concerned about how to find the right shade of yellow. The filmmakers tested various fabrics and shades before the camera to get a perfect match. Finally, they ended up choosing this golden yellow color. The dress is made of silk and has a satin finish. Certainly, it was tough for Watson to carry such a heavy gown so, she wore a cage beneath that voluminous skirt.
