Belle’s Yellow Gown Gets a Fashion-y Update in ‘Beauty and the Beast: a 30th Celebration’

Sure, it’s “a tale as old as time,” but Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” actually turned 30 this year — a full Selena Gomez, for comparison.

So, on Thursday, ABC celebrated with a live action and animated extravaganza directed by “Step Up” and “Crazy Rich Asians” auteur Jon M. Chu, headlined by marquee talent: HER as Belle, Josh Groban as Beast, Shania Twain as Mrs. Potts, Martin Short as Lumiere and more. With clips of the original animation being interspersed with the stage performance, the costumes by Marina Toybina (winner of six Emmys, two of which were for “The Masked Singer”) helped create seamless continuity, while honoring the significance of the 1991 classic to ardent fans.
