Okay, I know it's not coming out til next year, but I can't help being Waaaaaay Excited about Tim Burton's film version of Alice In Wonderland. Not only is it inspired by one of the coolest books ever written, not only is it being made by one of my all-time-favorite-can-do-no-wrong directors, but the cast are my top actors and actresses of all time (Helena Bonham Carter has been winning my heart for decades, and Johnny Depp, well, no more needs to be said). Mia Wasikowska, who plays Alice, is new to me, but I already love her. I mean, she is Australian, she didn't dumb down her last name, and she has a face that is beautiful and intelligent. And the costumes, especially Alice's dress? Hello Dreamy!
Okay, eye candy I promise you and eye candy I deliver:
Mia Wasikowska as Alice
Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter as the Mad Hatter and the Red Queen
Anne Hathway as the White Queen
Does Alice acquire this awesome dress mid-movie or something? We'll have to wait and see, I guess!
Okay, can't resist one more pic of Mia, from her shoot for Teen Vogue:
I hope this means that more fairy-tale-esque and romantic dresses will be hot in popular culture this year. You know me, never a fan of Modern and Boring. Tulle, lace trim, and the flouncy skirts: yes please!
***Just a fun aside: a while back, we sold a cool Alice in Wonderland-style prairie dress to one of our fave customers, Jenny, who does the wonderful blog Sailor Purrs. Come to find out, she is actually wearing the dress in the picture on her blog banner! I think Jenny makes an excellent Alice in her personal Flower Wonderland!***
Alice In Wonderland comes out on March 5th, 2010. Peep more details here!
