Belle's costumes in the live-action Beauty and the Beast

Belle's costumes don't fit the live-action Beauty and the Beast, but they do fit her brand

The live-action Beauty and the Beast's costumes are largely faithful to the story's 18th-century setting - with one big, telling exception.

I have to say that I'm loving all the longform analysis and reviews of the Beauty and the Beast film, no matter if positive or negative. Well, it's mostly negative as far as I can see, but with the film making over $700m globally so far and possibly breaking the $1 billion mark, it's a sure sign that Disney's gonna do what it does best and keep the engine running.

TO BE PERFECTLY HONEST, my agenda is a personal one, which is that I crave all the meta and analysis and merchandise that would accompany a live-action The Little Mermaid. That's it. That's all. I want it.

Considering the amount of discussion behind had over the Emma Watson-guided ballgown that has detractors' tongues wagging, I wonder what the equivalent might be for the possible-future Ariel's live-action appearance? The realism of her tail and the underwater scenes? Whether her hair is red enough? Her singing voice good enough?

I want it all.
