The most striking figurines in the collection is Princess Belle, the heroine of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Bob Mackie reimagines Belle in a flowing golden ballgown with 40 hand-applied citrine-colored crystals. The gown has an off-the-shoulder bodice and a richly embellished skirt with swirling lines, flared bow, curves, and sculpted flowers kissed with iridescent glitter and a pearlescent finish that adds to its elegance. Belle’s hair is styled in a graceful updo with a rose accent.

Headstrong and beautiful Belle, having saved the Beast with her love from his terrible fate, now her Prince, is dressed for the Ball for the whole Kingdom. She wears a golden silk taffeta gown adorned with jewel-embroidered laces, defiant vines, and roses on the dress and in her hair to waltz the night away with her Prince. The sketch Bob drew look’s decisively like a famous former client, Cher.

Belle’s figurine is not the Disney Princess’s first brush with high fashion. In 2011, Penelope Cruz posed as Belle for renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz in a series of images that celebrated famous Disney films. Cruz wore a similar yellow gown and danced with Jeff Bridges as the Beast in a gorgeous courtyard. The photo was part of Leibovitz’s Disney Dream Portraits, which also featured other celebrities as Disney characters inspires us to want to see Cruz’s Belle again in Mackie’s dress with a definitive Spanish flair.
