Yara Shahidi Says Halle Bailey 'Redefines What It Means to Be a Princess'

Yara Shahidi Says Halle Bailey 'Redefines What It Means to Be a Princess'

Yara Shahidi is a huge Halle Bailey fan!

The 19-year-old actress gushed about Halle being cast as Ariel in Disney’s upcoming live-action The Little Mermaid during an interview with ET at Comic-Con in San Diego, Calif.

“One, she is Ariel,” Yara said. “Like, if you know her, she is the most ethereal voice. And Chloe x Halle are two powerful young women. I don’t know other people who produce and write their own music, that are so involved in their process, that take their art so seriously and have such a great message.”

Yara didn’t stop there. She went on to discuss how Halle’s turn as Ariel will change the princess game for years to come.

“So to see Halle in this role, it redefines what it means to be a princess, and I think she does maintain all of those classic traits of Ariel while still bringing that sense of confidence and empowerment,” Yara said.

Yara Shahidi Is A Natural Beauty in 'Harper's Bazaar'

Yara Shahidi looks stunning in an unretouched photo shoot for the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar, on newsstands July 23.

The 19-year-old actress opened up about her style, the importance of inclusive makeup lines and her new flick The Sun Is Also a Star. Check it:

On why she signed for politically tinged The Sun Is Also a Star: “It’s not often that we see a story that humanizes immigration for a young audience.”

On her off-duty style—track suits: “By not showing skin, I’m making a statement.”

On being the new face of Bobbi Brown and the brand’s newly expanded shade range: “I love that more brands are doing this. There have been times when I got out of the makeup chair and my skin looked gray. It’s why I think every single person of color usually brings their own makeup kit to set.”
