Take a look at what we found!

As part of their album “From the archives”, Vogue has surprised us with these antiques! You might have also seen some of the photographs in Annie Leibovitz’s retrospective around the world… but they are just TOO much to forget.
Annie Leibovitz and Vogue…simply, the perfect combination!

Mirror mirror on the wall: Who’s the fairest of them all? It’s a tough call, with Julia Roberts and Lily Collins, the stars of Tarsem Singh’s aptly titled MIRROR MIRROR facing off against Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart in Rupert Sanders’Snow White and the Huntsman (out this June). To add to this tale of dueling Brothers Grimm, Hollywood has a whole storybook full of reimagined fairy tales, fables, and the like set for release soon—from Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and Jack the Giant Killer to Oz: The Great and Powerful to Maleficent. But if you’re looking for true flights of fashion whimsy, search no further than the pages of Vogue. From Belle (Drew Barrymore) gazing into a magical looking glass in Annie Leibovitz’s take on Beauty and the Beast to Lady Gaga playing Hansel and Gretel’s wicked witch in a face-obscuring wig created by Julien D’Ys, a trip through the archives is nothing short of fantastical.

 THE MAD TEA PARTY

“No room!” the March Hare and Mad Hatter shouted. “No room!” But Alice plunked herself down, desperate for some biscuits after a long day of living backward. Christian Lacroix Haute Couture dress with painted and sculpted mink dickey over a lace top and frilled lamé skirt. Stephen Jones (right) wears a custom-made hat of his own design. Lacroix, as the March Hare, is at far right.

DOWN THE RABBIT-HOLE

Faster, faster, faster she fell! Chasing Tom Ford’s White Rabbit, our Alice disappears down the never-ending dark passage. Tom Ford for Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche sky-blue silk-satin dress.

 DRINK ME . . .

How was Alice to know the innocent little bottle would make her grow to such a size? As Helmut Lang watched from the wall, she curled her legs up and hoped the designer’s organza minidress wouldn’t be crushed by her startling height. Dress from the Helmut Lang made-to-measure studio.

MUNCHKINLAND

The Penn State marching band (which caused a sensation at Marc Jacobs’s spring show) sends Dorothy (Keira Knightley) on her way to Oz, as artist Kara Walker, playing Glinda the Good Witch, warns, “Never let those ruby slippers off your feet for a moment, or you will be at the mercy of the Wicked Witch of the West.” From left: Dior Haute Couture by John Galliano tulle tiered ball dress. Marc Jacobs ivory cotton taffeta dress and ruby T-strap sandals.

 GOLDEN SLUMBER

The Sandman (played here by Sasha Cooke, who has appeared in the Met’s production of Hansel and Gretel) sprinkles magic dust onto the frightened children (Lily Cole and Andrew Garfield), who fall into a deep sleep and dream about a banquet served by a fish maître d’. Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière wool-silk jacket and Chloé flats. Sandman and fish maître d’ costumes courtesy of the Metropolitan Opera.

WICKED

The two discover a house in the forest, only to find it occupied by an old witch (portrayed here by Lady Gaga). Gretel looks sweet enough to eat in a poufy confection. But it’s Hansel the evil one wants to fatten up and feast on. On Lady Gaga: Marc Jacobs satin bra, slip silk blouse, and ruffled bloomer shorts. On Cole: Yves Saint Laurent embroidered silk poplin dress. Lady Gaga’s wig created by Julien D’Ys.

 FEED THE FLAMES

Before the witch  can cook Hansel and Gretel—whoosh—they push her into the oven and shut the door. From left: Oscar de la Renta bouclé tweed—and-chiffon dress and Marc Jacobs bonded-lamé belted jacket.

 WAITING IN THE WINGS

Awash in feathers, Caroline Trentini could easily be princess-turned-swan Odette. Marchesa pale-mint suede minidress with ostrich feathers. Délices de Cartier multicolored-gem tiara.

 PALE FIRE

Tilda Swinton, in costume as the White Witch in a pale-blue felt dress and white fox fur stole. As the witch’s power wanes, her costumes get smaller and her “icicles” in her headdress melt.

 WONDERLAND

With baroque foliage-print damask, Oscar de la Renta conjures up the decadent excess of times past with exaggerated puff sleeves, a cinched waist, and an elaborate train. Oscar de la Renta dress with slashed bouffant sleeves.
