Alice in Wonderland

The other day while doing some downtown bummin in the RDub I came across the Phantom Galleries and this particular Alice in Wonderland piece, sadly I did not get the name of the artist and I can't find it online:

My favorite is the caterpillar taking tiny puffs on the mushroom, very cute. While I was doing image research I came upon this, which I thought was very interesting because it has the same color scheme as the pieces above...

...and then I began thinking about all the great Alice in Wonderland photography I've seen lately, such as this ad for Disney with a certain bootylicious diva/wifey of a certain rapper:

But I'd have to say that my absolute favorite Alice in Wonderland portrayal has been this fashion spread by Annie Leiboitz, which came out in Vogue a few years ago.

This Alice is model Natalia Vodianova and you may recognize some of the designers. My favorite photo hands down is the one with John Galliano, I LOVE him. He's so dramatic and creative, I bet he styled his own photo. All this Alice in Wonderland business got me thinking about the new Tim Burton film. What's up with that? I can't find a decent trailer because it may be a bit too early, but here are some cool shots of the principal characters:

Alice is played by Mia Wasikowska, and Australian actress who is fairly new to the screen and it couldn't be a Tim Burton film if Johny Depp wasn't in it (hey, I'm not complaining!) so he plays the Mad Hatter in this one. I totally can't wait for it to come out!

  1. The casting of Alice seems perfect. I'm quite excited for this film...even if Johnny Depp is wearing so much make-up I can't see his pretty face...

  2. i agree, the layers are hiding his beautiful face.
