March 5th is the long awaited day for all of us fans of Tim Burton and Alice in Wonderland–Alice in Wonderland 3D will be out. But before the movie hits the theaters, there are the premiers. And last week, the stars sailed across the pond for a London premier with all the funds going to charity. The movie has an all-star cast with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Mia Wasikowska is Alice and Helena Bonham Carter is the Red Queen in Tim Burton’s psychadelic adventure based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.
Anne Hathaway, who plays the White Queen, looked amazing in her taupe sequined sleeveless gown and glamorous platforms–she definitely stole the show and flashbulbs of the paparazzi.
The sexy platforms looked a lot like Steve Madden’s Quantumm in bronze leather–it’s obvious that Ms. Hathaway likes to look hot and be comfortable–good show.
Helena Bonham Carter (Mrs. Burton) had on a crazy get-up that we can’t quite comprehend what she was trying to accomplish. A lot of bad attention? And it was a Vivienne Westwood dress–shockingly! Viv can even make the Queen Mum look stylish, so this dress is quite a mystery!
At least, she chose some simple platform heels in a bone/ivory color. I do think she should have chosen a black heel that brought out the black in the sleeves of her gown. Maybe something like Steven by Steve Madden’s Fantacy black suede pump
or Michael Kors’ Cedar pump in black kid leather with crisscrossing detail and laces that would have tied up her calves for a more romantic look.
This girl just can’t seem to get it right.
Johnny Depp looked dashing as always in all black–pants, vest, dress shoes and jacket–and a white button-up shirt with no tie. This guy is so James Bond and a geek (with his black horn rimmed spectacles) at the same time. No matter how old he gets, he’s always hot. And he signed autographs for the fans for two hours in the rain–such a sport!
Overall the night was a smashing success and the movie was well received. I can’t wait to go see it this Friday!
