|SECOND STAR ENTERTAINMEMT|
Mirror Mirror was a fresh and original live action adaptation of the Snow White Story that was released in 2012. it starred Lily Collins, and Julia Roberts as Snow White, and her Wicked Queen. Personally i loved it, it was fun, whimsical, and full of magic. it had gorgeous settings and locations, and academy award winning costumes. It was believable, when i watch the film i am totally transported to this world they created. Lilly Collins' reminds me of what it would have been like to see Audrey Hepburn play Snow White. She is the perfect blend of modern heroine, and traditional princess. Not to mention her costumes are stunning, each new dress more enchanting then the last, i love them all, i can not choose a favorite. i love that they worked very hard to stay far away from the red,blue, and yellow that is so often associated with this specific princess. The details and the work that went into each dress is honestly amazing, all the embroidery and the pleating, it's just stunning.
we simply can't do a post about mirror mirror and not showcase Julia Robert's portrayal of the queen, in some of the most incredible gowns i have ever seen. While her queen was definitely wicked, she is not portrayed as being down right evil and nasty. She gives our prince a love potion, is mean to the heroine, and banishes her and makes her an outlaw, but she does it in a way that while sinister is more comical, all with a style and flair only Julia could give it. Now the costumes, these dresses are just incredible. i would have to say my two favorites are the red and white peacock dress, and the green gown. but all of them are stunning. I love that she doesn't look like a traditional evil queen, there is no black curve hugging gowns, or sinister capes, no dark lips and arched eyes. This is the kind of outside the box design i adore.
