The countdown is on for the live action Beauty and the Beast Hollywood debut. Just like all of the other designers and companies that are unleashing special collections, we too are feeling ultra inspired by the tale as old as time!
As the petals are falling, getting us closer to showtime, we’re adding to our previous Belle Disney Bounding by bringing you fashionistas a Mrs. Potts look. This look is Kentucky Derby and tea party inspired. Perfect for spring! Think teacups with delicate florals and gold trim. Scroll below to see how we pieced together the look.
How does one Disney bound an inanimate character? With stealth and true creativity. Easily an inanimate character could veer on the side of costumey, cosplay – or cheesy/tacky. To Disney bound appropriately, one needs to avoid that at all costs!
Let’s get to the root of it. Mrs. Potts is, well, a tea pot. A tea pot evokes body and fullness, which calls for a full skirt. We could have easily gown for a white tulle or white lace skirt but why leave all the gold for Belle!? This girly gold skirt adds movement of pleats while a white trumpet sleeved blouse adds fluidity seen in Mrs. Potts’ scalloped lid.
To keep a lid on it, we spied a purple and pink Kentucky Derby hat. For a less in-your-face look, you might opt for a light pink beret but we like how a Kentucky Derby feel goes hand-in-hand with a tea party look. Metallic accents are continued with these Steve Madden sandals.
One might think – aha! let me find a teapot purse. But hold that thought! Mrs. Potts herself, who you’re Disney bounding IS a teapot. Why would a teapot have a teapot purse? No bueno. An adorable standard purse is needed. A lavender purse with gold details and bow continue to add girly touches.
My most favorite find is a gold baker’s bracelet. After all, Mrs. Potts and friends cultivate a kitchen that prepares and serves with flair a culinary cabaret! It features a baker’s palette of knife, rolling pen, and salt shaker charms. So cute!
