Step into Alice's WONDERLAND
The Disney film series has inspired fashion and beauty products that give customers a taste of the fantastical
Going down a rabbit hole has never been such flirty, feminine fun.
Tim Burton created a vivid and psychedelic world filled with flamboyant characters in the 2010 fantasy adventure Alice In Wonderland.
While the Hollywood film-maker is not at the helm for the sequel Alice Through The Looking Glass - James Bobin takes over as director - his whimsical vision continues in the new chapter, which opens here today.
A few years have passed since Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska) left the magical realm of Underland. Upon returning home, the heroine comes across a looking glass that takes her back.
There, she learns from her friends - the White Rabbit (Michael Sheen), Absolem (Alan Rickman), the Cheshire Cat (Stephen Fry) and Miranda, the Queen of Hearts (Anne Hathaway) - that the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) is very ill, and the only way to save him is to return to the past to alter some events.
Several fashion and beauty brands have taken it upon themselves to bring you into this fantastical and mad world with some extraordinary collections.
Irregular Choice Alice In Wonderland
A pair of statement shoes is a must for all women, and there is no better way to stand out from the crowd than with Irregular Choice footwear.
The British designer brand's Alice In Wonderland collection is too cute for words. Love the Cheshire Cat? You can "wear" him in either high heels or flats.
Can't get enough of flowers? The Flowers Can't Talk heels give new definition to flower power with its lavish prints and intricate designs.
The collection is priced from $249 to $459, and is available at Superspace or www.wearto.com.
Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette
Immerse yourself into the mad world, as described by the Cheshire Cat, with this limited edition range, which is a follow-up to the US cosmetics brand's sell-out Alice In Wonderland Book Of Shadows edition launched five years ago.
The new palette features similarly high-pigmented eyeshadows in a myriad of rich, trippy colours.
The package alone is a sight to behold, decorated with flowers, butterflies and quotes from the sequel.
Each eyeshadow is named after characters such as Alice, Mad Hatter, Miranda, Iracebeth and Time.
The limited edition set ($88) is available at all Sephora stores, and the Urban Decay Free Standing Stores at VivoCity and Bugis Junction.
