The Happiest Ads on Earth

Beyonce Knowles, Lyle Lovett and Oliver Platt channel Alice in Wonderland

What happens when you take a slew of major Hollywood mega-stars and put them in crazy costumes for photos by a brilliant photographer?

Magic, darling. Pure magic.

This certainly isn't new. In fact, you've probably seen the 2011/2012 ad series for Disney shot by Annie Leibovitz floating around in some of your favorite mags. In case you haven't though, allow me to show you.

Feast your eyes, child.

Kiera Knightly as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz

Orlando Bloom as King Arthur

A little whimsy for your Thursday.

Tell me, what was your favorite Disney character growing up? Mine was Peter Pan : )

Be blessed, lovelies-


  1. These are so neat! Love Tina as Tink! I like Peter Pan too. Actually found a pic recently of me in a Peter Pan costume made by my Mom for storybook character day back in 5th grade.

  2. I have seen these ads, but only the Alice in Wonderland one, so thanks for sharing all of them--it was the best part of my morning! Have a great Thursday :)

  3. Love these! There were spot on with the actors. Maybe i missed it, but will this be a movie of some sort or what are the ads for?


  4. Of course it was Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

    I had not seen these photos, and WOW! Amazing!

  5. I'm confused with the Wizard of Oz thrown in the mix. That's not Disney, no?

  6. So cool!!! I can't really say I had a favorite character growing up...kind of sad. Maybe Cinderella is my favorite though, especially after taking my daughter to Disney World and we had her get dressed up and made over like a princess in the Bibbidy Bobbidi Boutique and she chose Cinderella. What a LOVELY memory that is. :O)

  7. PS. That swimmer with Julianne? Michael Phelps. :)

  8. I LOVE These! I hadn't seen them- thanks for the share! and my favorite was Belle from beauty and the beast !

    ps. Most handsome prince... Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid. ;)

  16. Oh how I love all of those!! I'm such a Disney girl still. :) Ariel and the Little Mermaid was and still is my favorite...my family used to sing along to the cassette in every car ride we took, and I'm sure we all still know the lyrics. ;)
