Julia Roberts Evil Queen: Eye-Popping Costume Design

Remember the sweet Julia Roberts of Pretty Woman? Well, you don't want to mess with this Julia Roberts. Definitely, not with that cleavage. Or those hands on hips. Or that upside-down tiara. Or that bright red dress. Or those white peacock feathers, whose tips are probably poisoned.

Red becomes Roberts, which can be seen above as the Evil Queen in Tarsem Singh's upcoming Snow White movie – the one not starring Kristen Stewart. Roberts' feathers, tiaras, and (I assume) apples will be aimed instead at Lily Collins, who can be currently seen in John Singleton's thriller Abduction, starring none other than Stewart's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 co-star Taylor Lautner. See, Hollywood is just a little village. Everybody works with everybody else.

This as-yet untitled Snow White movie also features Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane, Sean Bean, Mare Winningham, and Michael Lerner. Eiko Ishioka, who won an Academy Award for Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula back in early 1993, will likely – at the very least – be nominated for another Oscar in early 2013. Singh's Snow White project comes out via Relativity Media on March 16.

Julia Roberts' Evil Queen clearly doesn't appreciate the fact that Lily Collins' Snow White is not only younger, but is also wearing a dress much too similar to the Queen's. Collins' Snow White has absolutely nothing to do with Kristen Stewart's Joan of Arc-looking heroine in Snow White and the Huntsman. Collins', in fact, is much closer to the Disney version – though they aren't exactly alike, either.

Directed by Tarsem Singh, from a screenplay by Jason Keller and Melisa Wallack, itself adapted from Jacob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm's story (itself an adaptation of age-old European folk tales), this as-yet untitled Snow White movie also features The Social Network's Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane, Sean Bean, Mare Winningham, and 1991 Academy Award nominee Michael Lerner (Barton Fink). Eiko Ishioka, who won an Academy Award for Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula back in early 1993 designed the luxurious costumes.

Singh's Snow White project comes out via Relativity Media on March 16, a few months ahead of Universal Pictures' Snow White and the Huntsman.

Armie Hammer may or may not get to play opposite Johnny Depp in Gore Verbinski's one-trillion-dollar version of The Lone Ranger. But Hammer, one of the stars in David Fincher's Academy Award-nominated The Social Network, can already add the role of Prince Charming to his resume. In this still nameless Snow White project, Hammer is joined by Lily Collins as Snow White and a bosomy Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen.

Directed by Tarsem Singh, from a screenplay by Jason Keller and Melisa Wallack, itself adapted from one of Jacob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm's tales (themselves adaptations of age-old European folk stories), the Roberts-Collins Snow White movie also features Nathan Lane, Sean Bean, Mare Winningham, and Michael Lerner.

Singh's Snow White project comes out via Relativity Media on March 16, a few months ahead of Universal Pictures' Snow White and the Huntsman, which stars Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman, Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, and Sam Claflin as Prince Charming. Rupert Sanders is the director.
