The stars of Alice In Wonderland graced the Royal World Premiere in London’s Odeon Leicester Square Thursday to celebrate the opening of the much-anticipated movie.
Director Tim Burton and his wife Helena Bonham Carter, who plays the Red Queen in the movie, posed for the photographers. Tim Burton previously threatened to ditch the premiere after Odeon cinema chain refused to screen Alice In Wonderland in the local market. Odeon finally agreed to show the film last minute.
Check out Helena’s quirky Queen of Hearts purse.
Anne Hathaway, who plays the White Queen, wore a strapless Vivienne Westwood dress and Stephen Webster jewelry.
Mia Wasikowska, who plays the title role, outdid Anne Hathaway in the fashion department with this lacy Valentino dress.
Barbara Windsor, who plays Dormouse, looked every bit the Tim Burton character in her whimsical suit.
Dancer Paloma Faith seemed to have the Red Queen in mind when she dressed up for the event.
It was a royal affair as Prince Charles and Camilla came to support the event, which benefited The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts.
Mad-as-a-hatter Johnny Depp said it best: “It’s Tim Burton’s take on Alice in Wonderland, which to me, is the perfect marriage to bring Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece to life.”
Alice in Wonderland opens in the US and UK on March 5, 2010. Don’t forget your 3D glasses!
