Los Angeles' stylish holiday gift guide, inspired by fairy tales

December 11, 2011 |  7:03 am

Lily Collins as Snow White
The Image holiday gift guide is here, inspired by Snow White, among others.

That's because our cultural obsession with sexy vampires and teen wizards has been eclipsed by the recent influx of fairy tales in pop culture.  For starters, there’s NBC’s "Grimm" (recasting fairy tales as crime procedurals), ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” (the fairy tale as family drama), and two films based on Snow White that are set for release next year. (That's Lily Collins, above, portraying Snow White in one of them, "Mirror, Mirror.")

We here at Image took that cue and spun it into our 2011 gift guide, complete with presents inspired by a princess, an evil queen and even three bears.

We’ve selected some stylish accessories, beauty items and home decor items that have a little fairy tale magic to them. For a closer look at some of the items, I’ll be talking about the gift guide live this Sunday at 8:30 p.m. on KTLA Channel 5. And don’t forget to check out the gift guide for yourself.
