We have another sneak peek: Belle’s updated opening dress.

Disney released a sketch of what Belle’s blue apron and peasant blouse will look like this go-around, and they’re way edgier, grungier, and modern compared to the 1991 Disney originals. Belle is finally letting her hair down—literally.

Other changes we noticed: Belle swaps her perfect low ponytail for a more realistic down ‘do. The heavier hair is paired with a thicker-looking blue apron with checkered detail. Belle’s white blouse is also distinctively less polished, and she trades in her hand basket for several washcloths around her waist.

However, the most drastic change is definitely Belle’s footwear. Disney exchanged Belle’s dainty, barely there flats for a pair of sturdier boots with thick shoelaces. Belle has a lot of walking to do, people. She needs support!
