Beauty and the Beast

Bedford–Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, November 14, 2016

"Tale as old as time
True as it can be
Barely even friends
That somebody bends

The trailer of the new "Beauty and the Beast" was released now and suddenly we're little girls again believing in magic and fairytales... 🌷🌷🌷

"Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

Directed by Oscar® winner Bill Condon based on the 1991 animated film, “Beauty and the Beast” is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards® (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice. “Beauty and the Beast” will be released in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017."

Do we really need to wait until March??

".. Just a little change
Small, to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the Beast.."

Domhnall Gleeson

My #MCM inspiration is the irish actor and writer Domhnall Gleeson. Born on May 12, 1983

He's not the tipical hollywood good looking guy but he has something that catches our attention - beyond the talent to act, of course.
Maybe is something in the way he stares or maybe is something in the way he smiles.. Maybe is his sensual taurus personality (for those who believes in astrology).
I don't know.
I only know that he's my Monday Crush because of this new Burberry film released last week. 
It left me breathless and wishing for more ❤️

"The Tale of Thomas Burberry". 160 years in the making, a story inspired by the pioneering discoveries of our founder, reimagining key events that have shaped Burberry’s history.
