As I eagerly await for the Tim Burton "Alice in Wonderland" movie, I was inspired to search out the pictures from the December 2003 issue of Vogue.
They are my favorite pictures ever taken by Annie Leibovitz. I am always captivated by her work. She does such a great job portraying the storyline and its characters in these photos.
Each featured designer created a garment based on their interpretation of "Alice", and was then cleverly matched with one of the fairytale characters. Some, I must admit are very good matches.
