A natural make-up and shoes with which she could run without difficulty were some of the requests of the British actress.




Actress Emma Watson seeks to carry her message of equality between men and women in the new film starring Beauty and the Beast, one of Disney's most famous films, by refusing to wear the traditional corset that Belle wears in the animated film.

 

 




Leaving aside the image of Disney princesses, Watson, one of the faces of women's empowerment, wants to offer the public a "princess as feisty as she is strong".


 
According to Jacqueline Durran, responsible for the costumes in the film's live-on, the UN ambassador decided to eliminate any sexist air from her role, which led her, for example, to demand that the classic yellow dress of Bella does not wear a corset.

 

 

 


 
"In the Emma Watson rendition, Belle is an active princess, so she didn't want an oppressive dress that would hinder her movement," Durran told Entertainment Weekly. Among the recommendations given by Watson, the dress should "be light and have a lot of movement".

 

 

 


 
Regarding makeup, Watson decided that natural makeup be used in all scenes. The costume designer said that the actress asked that eighteenth-century style shoes be adapted so that she can run without difficulty,
