Once Upon A Time...


Hey Everybody! Have you ever had one of those days, where you feel like you're in La La Land? It's been lightening, thundering and raining for 2 days straight here in New Orleans.More bad weather tonight. Heard about those crazy tornadoes in Texas? The massive tornado lifted a couple of 18 wheeler trucks in the air and slammed them down like they were toys. Our weather is MAD! Crazy mad.

Well speaking of mad (hatter that is). Vogue pulled some fairytale editorials from their archives. The pictures are truly beautiful. I really love the Alice in Wonderland and Drew Barrymore Beauty and The Beast pics. Check out Lady Gaga towards the end playing the Witch in Hansel and Gretel. I felt this post would be perfect for today, since that's the kind of mood I'm in. HaHaHa To see them all in their entirety and description Click Here. Enjoy and I'll see you guys tomorrow (afternoon).


Any Favorite Fairytales? Love them? Hate them?

Oooh I remember that Alice in Wonderland one!! Didn't it come out the same time as the movie? I remember all the fashion blogs went through a huge Alice in Wonderland phase for a while. It was awesome. :)

I don't remember that Drew Barrymore editorial, however. How did I miss that?! Is it fairly recent? It's absolutely GORGEOUS.

I love the Wizard of Oz one too. Very cool.

And I'm really glad you pointed out Lady Gaga because I totally would have missed her in the last two shots. Lol.

I hope you're having a great week!!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

PS. I forgot to say my favorite fairy tale! It's Beauty and the Beast. I relate to Belle (although, I must admit I've only seen the Disney version. One of my goals is to read the original versions, which I heard are really different and kind of spooky.) Have you read the original fairy tales??

Bonnie said...

I have never been a fan of fairy tales simply because the women are usually scared, little girls. I can't handle that. I can, however, totally handle this awesome editorial. Love those pictures!

Wow, I love Drew with the lions...amazing!

Little Rus said...

I've always loved the one with Natalia, but has never been too keen on any celebrities... Just don't like celebrities in fashion mags (the grumpy old me, I know, I know... )
Fairy tale wise, I've never had a favourite one, but when I was a kid I loved and read every single story by brothers Grimm, Andersen and a couple of Russian writers. I actually knew many by heart, but, of course, it totally evaporated from my mind as I got older.

Nico Saich said...

I love any and all fairy tales! I love the ones that are slightly scary. Like how snow white's step mother wanted to take her heart and had her minion try and kill her, but he couldn't so he killed a pig instead and brought it back to the witch. Anyway she made it into a stew and fed it to snow white's father under the impression that it was snow white's heart. (ps, I recently had jaw surgery... AGAIN) and I maybe shouldn't leave comments while on pain killers.
