Everyone knows the story of Alice in Wonderland. And everyone from Dali to Disney has tried to put their own stamp on Alice’s tale…but my favourite is the Vogue 2003 spread. Annie Leibovitz perfectly captures Natalie Vodianova as Alice alongside several top designers in a fantastically fashionable wonderland. I stumbled upon these pictures whilst looking for some inspiration, the next parcel through my letterbox is the DVD 🙂

I love this editorial, I’ve seen it before. but I didn’t get to see every scan of it, so this post was very helpful to me! It’s amusing how the designers pose in the photos.BTW, would you like to do a link exchange with me?

I loved this editorial when it came out. I adore the fantasy element of fashion.
Beautiful. I LOVE the Helmut Lang dress.
that 2003 version of Vogue was the first copy of vogue I ever bought so that remains my favorite Alice spread and plus Annie’s photography is incredible

I think this is one of my favorite fashion editorials ever. Each time I see it, I wish I could fall down Annie Leibowitz's rabbit hole. I can't decide, however, which is my favorite shot, The one with KL or the one with John Galliano— I love them both so much!
