In the photos, the Golden Globe winner, 21, is seen wearing a gown with a blue bodice and long puff sleeves attached to a canary yellow tulle skirt. Other than the sleeves being a longer version of the animation’s original costume, the look does closely resemble the original 1937 character.

‘I’m Pinching Myself’. In a chat with Andrew Garfield for Variety’s Actors on Actors series earlier this year, she recalled that her live-action 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,” explained Garfield, 38. “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.”
“Never in a million years did I imagine that this would be a possibility for me,” the actress noted. “You don’t normally see Snow Whites that are of Latin descent. Even though Snow White is really a big deal in Spanish-speaking countries.”
“Blanca Nieves is a huge icon whether you’re talking about the Disney cartoon or just different iterations and the Grimm fairytale and all the stories that come with it,” Zegler continued. “But you don’t particularly see people who look like me or are me playing roles like that.”
