Maitreyi Ramakrishnan is giving fans a Disney princess moment.

The 20-year-old actress appeared on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on Saturday, wearing a mustard yellow sleeveless gown that featured ruffles and a large bow on her chest. The "Never Have I Ever" star paired the piece with metallic silver open-toe strappy heels, golden gem studs and a hoop nose ring.

To give her look a bit of charm, the Mississauga, Ont. native wore a soft bright red lip, light eyeshadow and red blush on her cheeks.

"Doing TIFF the right way (swipe to see why)," the "Turning Red" actress joked in her Instagram post, referencing the last two snaps where she's applying ketchup to a hot dog.

Fans filled Ramakrishnan's post with tons of comments noting her beauty, with many adding that she looked like Belle, Jasmine and Tiana from the Disney Princess franchise.

"So glamorous! Especially with condiments," wrote Teen Vogue editor-in-chief Versha Sharma.

"Stunner," added Toronto actress Tia Bhatia.

"Oh to look this beautiful photographed with a hot dog in my hand. You're truly iconic," one fan chimed in.

"You're always glowing," another replied, along with four yellow heart emojis.

"How are you so pretty, yellow mustard and yellow dress!" someone raved.

"You're literally stunning," commented someone else. "Making me so proud to be Indian right now."

Ramakrishnan attended TIFF for the premiere of Steven Spielburg's coming-of-age drama, "The Fabelmans," at the Princess of Wales Theatre on Sept. 10.

In a video Vogue published in August, Ramakrishnan opened up about how she appreciates how her family raised her while growing up.

"Very thankful for my mom and my grandma for the way that they raised me because many South Asian people were told, 'Don't go out into the sun, don't go play outside in the sun, you're gonna get darker and that's a bad thing,'" she explained, adding that she was grateful her mom taught her how to take care of her skin without communicating anything negative.

"Hopefully, moving forward, other young, little South Asian kids — and just kids of colour — have that experience because colourism is f—ng wack."
