Throwback Thursday: Alice in Wonderland by Grace Coddington (2003)
In the midst of all my Coachella talk, let’s take a time out for a serious fashion moment with a little throwback to 2003 and Grace Coddington‘s Alice in Wonderland editorial fantasy. She brought together model Natalia Vodianova, photographer Annie Leibovitz, and a slew of designers for a breathtaking reimagination of the illustrations in Lewis Carroll’s iconic book.

In a series of custom blue dresses, Vodianova made the perfect Alice with her big eyes and childlike features. Alice’s story is beautifully told on the pages of Vogue through Annie Leibovitz’s lens and was shot at a chateau just outside Paris.
Coddington recalls the day as exhausting and exhilarating, finishing the evening with chef-prepared picnic on the lawn. Says Coddington, “it was one of those magical evenings that you knew—as you experienced it—you would never forget.”
Much love, Madison Blake
