Amanda in Wonderland

Alright, I'm sure we all know how desperately in love I am with the whimsically wonderful Alice in Wonderland, and I would like to take this moment to praise whoever decided that Alice was to be such a prevalent fashion muse at this moment in time. Though I'm positive most might be growing a bit tired of this trend -- it has been done time and again --I honestly cannot get enough. Oh well, naysayers, I'm going to post this gorgeous spread of Amanda Seyfried, from Vogue Italia April 08, anyway, say what you might, and I will continued to be inspired by this blissfully recurrent theme. I have never been one to apologize for the things I love, but I will say this: I'm so very sorry that Alice in Wonderland just happens to kick ass.

That's right, I said it =)

I must admit that the first three are my favorites, and the depicted gardens contrast strikingly with the metallic city in the latter three. It is all a bit reminiscent of Gwen Stefani's What You Waiting For? video, but I think that only solidifies my affections for this spread. Amanda Seyfried is a gorgeous, talented actress, and I can't wait to see her in Mamma Mia! If that whole acting thing doesn't work out for her (yeah, right!), I'm sure she could do some work as a model or something... ;)

I desperately want to dress like this and take fabulous pictures of myself for the world to see. Hmm, I do believe that the wheels in my head are turning, and my yard does present more than a few tempting possibilities. I suppose we shall see what happens... (cue evil laugh)

I am getting kinda sick of Alice shoots (even though I LOVE the book) but this one actually looks pretty nice, Amanda is a great model for the concept!

I'm glad I'm not the only one in love with this. Annie, that is awesome! I wanna see! I've been meaning to do some sort of shoot like that, but I can't seem to get around to it, haha. I think I am going to dress as Alice for Halloween this year, so we shall see how that goes.
