The latest movie by Tim Burton, “Alice in Wonderland”, brought us back to our wonderful childhood years. It is a beautiful story about female empowerment and regaining our “muchness” as the Mad Hatter would put it. When we grow older, we often become scared of life situations and lose our ability to experience our emotions to the full. The adventures of Alice give us hints on reinventing your own self-esteem and taking the courage to do what we really want and need to.
In addition to teaching us a profound philosophical lesson, it also gives us a real tutorial to the fairy-tale romantic style. The embodiment of it, the White Queen, is eccentric, dramatic, and powerful, yet committed to harm no living thing. Played by Anne Hathaway, the White Queen sways through the screen in gorgeous white gown adorned with pearls. Her dress is intricately detailed without being overly indulgent, and her pearls complement it beautifully by giving it even more ethereal, dreamy, and pure look.
