KEY POINTS

  • Rachel Zegler was photographed on the set of the "Snow White" live-action remake in her costume as the Disney princess
  • The Golden Globe winner was seen wearing a gown with a blue bodice, long puff sleeves and a yellow tulle skirt
  • Twitter users had mixed opinions about Zegler's costume

Rachel Zegler's look for the "Snow White" live-action remake has been unveiled.

The 21-year-old actress, who plays the iconic Disney princess, was photographed on the set this week wearing a gown with a blue bodice, long puff sleeves and a canary yellow tulle skirt, People reported.

The sleeves were noticeably longer than that of Snow White's dress in the animated film, but Zegler's overall look still closely resembles the original character from 1937, the outlet noted.

In the photo, the Golden Globe winner can also be seen sporting a pair of Ugg boots under her gown as well as multiple clips in her hair to hold her short bob together.

Zegler's costume received mixed responses on Twitter. Some weren't impressed, while others appeared to be satisfied with her look as Snow White.

"I appreciate the accuracy," one person wrote.

One critic, however,  commented: "This is a prime example of why accuracy isn't always best."

But another person argued, "Accuracy can be great if you add realism." 

The Twitter user posted photos of the gowns of other princesses from past Disney live-action remakes, including Lily James' layered, cornflower blue ball gown in 2015's "Cinderella." They pointed out that Disney princesses are known for their dresses, so it is unlikely for the production to change their look entirely.

Another critic wrote that Disney's costumes "look like cheap cosplays," but other users defended the production over the gown's design and colors.

"When people find out that it's so bright on purpose because it translates differently on camera," one person commented.

Another agreed, noting that the reactions to Zegler's set photo were similar to the complaints about the hair of Halle Bailey as Ariel in the "Little Mermaid" live-action remake. "They don't know how to wait," the user wrote.

Zegler's casting as Snow White also received mixed responses on social media when it was first announced last year, with some questioning why she got the role. The young actress addressed the backlash during a chat with Andrew Garfield for "Variety's Actors on Actors" series earlier this year.

The "West Side Story" actress recalled that her casting announcement "was a huge thing that was trending on Twitter for days because all of the people were angry."

"Ah, those people. The people that we need to educate. The people that we need to love into awareness," Garfield said.

"We need to love them in the right direction," replied Zegler, in reference to those who criticized her casting over her race. She added, "At the end of the day, I have a job to do that I'm really excited to do. I get to be a Latina princess."

The "Snow White" remake, which will be directed by Marc Webb, is set to be released in 2023.
