You saw the poster earlier with the first trailer for Disney’s live action remake of Cinderella, but did you detect something special. Okay, Lily James as Cinderella is pretty special by herself, but the artistic eye of photographer Annie Leibobitz actually took the photo, as well as a number of other photos, to help promote the film. Many of those photos are available on newstands now inside Vogue magazine’s December issue.
If that poster looks familiar, it probably reminds you of the very first photo in Annie Leibovitz’s Disney Dream Portrait Series with Scarlett Johansson as Cinderella taken way back in 2007.
I guess it’s okay if great artists steal from themselves, right?
Walt Disney Studios has also released a few more photos showing various characters in costumes designed by Oscar-winning costume designer Sandy Powell.
Lily James (with Richard Madden as the prince) on set (above) and Cate Blanchett as the stepmother with her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) below. I love how the costumes capture that 50’s Hollywood glamor!
Cinderella opens in theaters on March 13, 2015! We have more photos coming shortly in another post.
