A shot with the iPad at Akershus on February 23rd. Knowing that it was the first chance I'd get to really talk to Belle in her new formal style, I saved my yellow Burberry polo for that night - a gesture she kindly thanked me for. I was glad to see that the new style looked as great in person as I had anticipated - personally, I think that the dress has been touched up without being ostentatious and that the hair, particularly the curls, is still elegant but makes her look more dignified.
I told her I remembered telling Cinderella when I saw her new style that I didn't think it was possible for her to become more stunning, but that I thought that was what happened. Belle was thrilled to hear me add that I could certainly apply the same to her - though when she told me, "Aw, well, thank you very much! That's very kind of you!" and then later gave me a hug, I said, "Aw, come on - I'm just telling the truth here!"
