Enchanted clothing - Snow White

'Someday my prince will come...'

We all know so well that this blah blah is only some fairy tale sweet-talk that does not exist in real life. But at the same time we would love to be a princess. And this year, to be a movie princess, you only have to be Snow White!

Whether in a movie or elsewhere, Snow White is far from being a has-been princess, who only knows how to eat a rotten apple and lie in bed waiting for Prince Charming... An enchanting world, indeed, but Snow White in 2012 is a total warrior. Or more like a lovely young lady wearing haute couture dresses. In Rupert Sanders' movie, she is wearing leggings and a dark armor... dark and effective just like the character.

Her mean witchy stepmother wears a really gorgeous cape, maleficient and splendid as the same time (a nice little princess should be able to wear it for a cocktail or other reception)!
As for the mean stepmummy's wardrobe, whether in this movie or in another one, it is glamorous, well-stocked and really sumptuous: I was like 'OMG, so jealous!!'
Fashion and nice costumes are not strictly reserved to nice young ladies, yeaaay! Concluding from this, however, that you have to become mean to be able to wear Queen gowns...!

The queen of movie costumes, Colleen Atwood, has made a really exceptional and fairy-like work: indeed her costumes's purpose is to dress up the characters of the movie, but that's not the only thing as you get to understand the story only by looking at her clothes. The cuts, the fabrics and colors play a big part in the movie. And it is no surprise if the lady has already won multiple Oscars: in 'Chicago' (Rob Marsahall, 2003), 'Memoirs of a geisha' (2005), and for Tim Burton's re-adaptation of Lewis Carroll's book, Alice in Wonderland (2010).

Let's dream... we are really looking forward to Hollywood's call for Malam princess dresses ;-)
