Alice in Wonderland World (Royal) Premiere: February 25, 2010 - London

So excited to see this film-the reviews so far have been fantastic:
Rotten Tomatoes

Looks like the Johnny Depp/Tim Burton/Helena Bonham Carter Dream Team have done it again.
The makeup and costumes (not to mention the sets) are going to be out of this world. 

Premiere photos:

Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, and Mia Wasikowska

Check out Helena's custom clutch:

Meeting the Royals.  Mia resembles Carey Mulligan with her hair like this.
And theeere's Johnny!

Both Helena & Camilla wore Vivienne Westwood

Movie stills:

Mia Wasikowska plays Alice. You may know her from the TV drama In Treatment.  She was also in Amelia with Hilary Swank.

Helen Bonham Carter never disappoints.  She's so cool.

Wedged 'In'

Are wedge shoes ever out of style?  If we talk about the last decade of fashion, we can certainly say that the wedge shoe has been a permanent fixture on the runways.
Since the Mac Daddy of the Wedge Heel, Salvatore Ferregamo (shoe on the left, circa 1944) made his first pair, women's footwear was never the same.

Stilettos are always going to be our fave but there’s just something about the wedge that sceams 'SPRING', non?
Sure, they make great wedge shoes & boots for the winter but nothing is more adorably stylish than a little wedge sandal.

NYFW: Sophie Théallet ~ February 16, 2010

Sure, her AW 2010 line may not look 'wintery' enough but boy, this lady is fantastic at her 'bohemian luxe'.  I'm loving EVERY piece in her first collection since winning that coveted CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund--$200,000. 
What can we expect from someone who worked with greats like Jean Paul Gaultier and Azzedine Alaïa?

Some hits from the line:

What we didn't like?  VELVET!  Yuckers.  What's the deal with all-over velvet this season?  Zac Posen did (terrible) red velvet in his show, too.  Are we missing something?

Velvet will always be a fashion faux pas.  It's just not flattering.  Plus, reminds us of Christmas during the late 80's, early 90's--a velvet explosion!  ugh.

My prom dress was green velvet & taffetta.  Yes we all have had our fashion disasters--stop judging!

LOVING those slouchy little suede boots, though.  Glad that 80's look is still hot for AW 2010.
