The costumes in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland were simply WONDERful! No other way to put it! What a match made in heaven: Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, Alice in Wonderland, and Disney Digital 3D!

Here's an article I found from Women's Wear Daily, interview with the amazingly talented and creative Colleen Atwood! http://www.wwd.com

When Colleen Atwood set out to design the costumes for Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” hitting theaters Friday [March 5, 2010], the last thing the Academy Award winner wanted to replicate was the clich√© Alice-in-a-bag costumes that arrive on the shelves of drug stores every Halloween.

“I was running in the other direction from that,” declares Atwood, who ultimately rendered much of the film’s marquee cast virtually unrecognizable — turning Anne Hathaway into a frosty White Queen; Johnny Depp into a clown-faced Mad Hatter, and Helena Bonham Carter into a cartoonish Red Queen. To help with ideas, Atwood consulted a more authentic reference — the illustrations by John Tenniel and Lewis Carroll that accompanied early editions of Carroll’s 1865 classic.

Atwood can only take partial credit for the cast’s on-screen appearance, though. The costume designer relied on an extensive hair and makeup team that included head makeup artist Valli O’Reilly and hair department head Terry Baliel. What’s more, since Burton used a technique that combined live action with animation, Atwood was able to enhance her designs with the magic of movies. “I got to do all these new things I hadn’t done before,” says Atwood, who has worked with Burton on seven previous films including “Big Fish” and “Sweeney Todd.”

Maksim Designing Erin Andrews' Dancing With the Stars Costumes

What will ESPN's Erin Andrews wear on Dancing With the Stars?

"Maks is designing all my costumes!" she told UsMagazine.com of her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, at the grand opening of Drai's Hollywood Wednesday.

"Expect a lot of sexy stuff!" chimed in Chmerkovskiy.

Not that Andrews, 31, minds.

"I have no problem with the costumes because this is a professional dancer so they know what they are doing and I trust them. I don't look at it as wearing a short skirt or that you are wearing something skimpy," Andrews told Us. "It's what they do for a living. It's their profession so I think it's cool to be a part of it."
