No one loves a fairy tale more than I do (I was an embarrassment to society at Disneyland last week), so you can imagine my happiness that not one but two Snow White movies are coming out in 2012 — with epic costumes and phenomenal directors! For me, the gorgeous costumes are just as exciting as these fairy tale live action films (we are not discussing or counting the Milificent movie as she terrorized my childhood).
I took it upon myself, as a civic duty, to share stills from the upcoming films because as you will see, the costumes are brilliant and I’m really excited about the director, Tarsem Singh (The Cell & The Fall - a truffle must see), whose proclivity for the most vivid and beautiful signature style is unbelievable. I’m v excited to see him break into mainstream film world; first up for him is Immortals, out soon!
These pics are also interesting for anyone out there who wants to attempt the Lily Collin‘s Snow White look for Halloween. I must say, for someone who was never a fan of Lily Collins, I am tres excited to see her play Snow White … She looks just like her and I’m secretly hoping she will sing! #Imabeliever
Eiko Ishioka, costumer from Bram Stoker‘s Dracula is the genius responsible for these works of art …. I can see an Academy Award nod for best costuming in 2013! Every time I see these breath taking costumes, I think of Alexander Wang and Viktor and Rolf. The craftsmanship, design, and aesthetic is unremarkable and has already stolen the show. The adorable and enchanting set design was by Immortals set decorator, Jille Azis. My only complaint is that they should have made Julia Roberts look more evil or scary, like they made Charlize Theron in the other Snow White movie (Snow White and The Huntsman with Kristin Stewart, Chris Hemsworth).
#sidenote: Costume designer Eiko Ishioka has worked with Tarsem on The Cell, The Fall, and the upcomming Immortals.
#sidenote2: There are two new fairy tale-ish shows coming out this week as well. Once Upon A Time Starts (featuring Ginifer Goodwin as Snow White) tomorrow on NBC and Grimms starts Friday the 28th on ABC.
