So, Alice In Wonderland is EVERYWHERE at the moment, i personally adore it. Tim Burton’s remake of the original movie looks amazing! (i’m going to see it in 3-D on Saturday YEY!)
Last week was The Royal Premiere of Alice In Wonderland & the outfits certainly suited the film well. Helena Bonham Carter wore a Vivienne Westwood dress with a jacket and to fit her role as the Red Queen she accessorized her outfit with a Queen Of Hearts Clutch.
Anne Hathaways stole the show for best dressed in many eyes when she wore a Vivienne Westwood frock, she finished off the look with Casadel heels.
Mia Wasikwska plays the main role as alice. the austrailian actress wore a black lace Valentino AW09 couture gown.
Designer of the moment and one of my favourite designers Vivienne Westwood showed up wearing one of her own gowns and looking wacky and wonderful as usual. She also wore a novelty tiara and earrings.
Avril Lavigne wore a beautiful black sleek Dolce & Gabbana gown. Avril wrote the main theme tune to the new Alice In Wonderland.
Lily Cole came in a printed dress with a bright pink clutch (looks like the one i desperatly wanted from the H&M Jimmy Choo collection) she topped her lovely look of with some floral styled heels which are amazing!
i thought it would be nice to put a picture of Johnny Depp 😉 He plays the infamous Mad Hatter, he turned up to the premiere looking very fetching in tom ford.

Alice In Wonderland has also taken over Paris. Top Designers have made a collection of clothes to be placed in the windows of Printemps, a Parisian department store. The window will be showing the collection until March 14th, with the likes of Christopher Kane, Nicholas Kirkwood, Chloe, Ann Demeulemeester, Bernard Willhelm, Maison Martin Margiela, Manish Arora and the late genius that was Alexander McQueen.
Christopher Kane/Nicholas Kirkwood:
Nicholas Kirkwood designed the gorgeous shoes and if anyone gets the chance to see a picture of the one-offs, they are absolutely amazing!
“I think my favourite Alice character is the March Hare. You can see I’ve made his watch rather prominent. This was a different design process for me, because I’m not usually so applicative—typically, I’m thinking about line, silhouette. But this time, I figured, why not just pile as much as I can on top?” —Nicholas Kirkwood
Chloé – “Running around careless and free in a romantic dress, falling down the rabbit hole, chasing time in a dreamlike state of mind, meeting unexpected characters with many tales to tell—sounds like many a girl’s night out!” —Chloé design team
Maison Martin Margiela – “Alice’s silhouette is a blue upside-down dress with cage sleeve, as if she walked through the mirror and her dress completely reversed. A long ball gown has been reworked, upside-down, into a minidress. The bustier in taffetas becomes a pleated miniskirt. The petticoat in plonge becomes an asymmetrical draped top. The skirt in ‘plumetis’ tulle becomes a veil. A cage sleeve of whale-boned velvet ribbon is embroidered with pearls, crystals, and recycled jewels.” —Maison Martin Margiela
Manish Arora – This window is one of my favourites, the shoulder detail with the playing cardson the dress is so quirky and totally fits in with alice in wonderland. the dress is actually made out of foam but still looks amazing!
i think i’ll end my post here, as its kinda long atm, but leave comments and tell me what you think of alice in wonderland and if you’re going to see it.
