Leslie Mann's Oscars Dress Looks Just Like Belle's

With the live action version of Beauty and the Beast coming to theaters soon, it seems the world has Disney on the brain. So it makes perfect sense why everyone on Twitter thought Leslie Mann's Oscars dress looked just like Belle's from the movie's iconic ballroom dance scene.

Remember that lovely movie moment? You know, when Belle danced with Beast in that twirly yellow gown? Back in the day, the detail that went into that dress was created with top-of-the-line computer graphics — which might have something to do with why it's so memorable. Or, maybe it's just the fact that, I don't know... it was so elegant and yellow.

When Mann appeared on the red carpet with her husband, director Judd Apatow, everyone's mind went right back to that 1991 movie, as well as all the recent movie posters featuring Emma Watson at Belle. (Oh, be still my childhood heart!) It was hard not to see the resemblance, what with the color and the draping, and the ball gown-ness of it all.

Some users claimed Mann took inspiration directly from Belle herself. Others were half waiting for the Beast to stroll on up and join her on the carpet. Take a look below to see what I mean.

OK, it was pretty identical.

Too funny.

She is kind of right on trend.


Channeling indeed!
