Past Fashions: Curiouser and Curiouser…

July 27, 2009


Thought I’d post one of my favourite editorials, the Alice in Wonderland shoot by Annie Leibovitz for US Vogue in December 2003. I find this an overwhelmingly happy combination– one of my favourite stories with beautiful dresses and photography.  It stars Natalia Vodianova as Alice, with a host of designers playing the story’s characters. In each scene Natalia wears the relevant designer’s take on a blue dress.

Above: Natalia as Alice Liddell and Olivier Theyskens as Lewis Carroll.


Tom Ford as the White Rabbit.


Drink Me.


Marc Jacobs as the Caterpillar.


Pig & Pepper.


Jean Paul Gaultier as the Chesire Cat.


Viktor and Rolf as Tweedledee and Tweedledum.


Stephen Jones as the Mad Hatter, Christian Lacroix as the March Hare.


John Galliano as the Queen of Hearts. Alexis Roche as his King.


Donatella Versace and Rupert Everett as the Gryphon and the Mock Turtle.


Nicolas Ghesquiere.


  1. I was in fashion school when this came out..and I still remember the waves this one generated!
    Lovely to see it again…and you are right..this might be among the best ones they got!

    • It came out during my freshman year of college. My room-mate and I immediately fell in love with it and put it up on our walls. I’m generally not overly thrilled with US Vogue’s editorials, but this one utterly enchanted me.

  2. Oops..missed putting in my url…
    Of course I’ve been here before:D

  3. hey im new to wordpress so please check out my site, love yours! that editorial is so cute and reminds me of the new movie coming out!

  4. I remember this well. Usually I am not a Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel fan, but I adore his dress in this editorial- I would die to have it full-length for a wedding gown and I’d even keep it blue!

  5. i love these! it’s the first time i saw them and i’m blown away! thanks for posting.
