The voice of the title character, Auli’i looked so gorgeous in the gown from New Zealand designer Kiri Nathan — and even though it’s pretty and we all desperately want one in our closets — there’s much more meaning behind it.
Designer Kiri paid homage to Maori culture and tradition, incorporating Flower designs, and Kona patterns.
The dress, which mimics an ocean wave, also included Raranga weaving and Whakairo carving, and Pounamu jewelry, the most precious stone to the Maori.
