Helena Bonham Carter, as interpreted by Avril Lavigne, for 'Alice' DVD launch

May 10, 2010 | 10:35 pm


Though we wouldn't normally envision Avril Lavigne as the stylist for a family audience, the singer -- along with other celebrity designers -- is doing just that, in conjunction with the June 1 release of Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" on DVD and Blu-ray.

Academy Award-winning "Alice" costume designer Colleen Atwood and Los Angeles Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising on May 27 will open "The Edgier Side of Alice," an exhibit showcasing outrageous looks from the worldwide hit.

In addition to Atwood's originals, designers including Sue Wong, Tom Binns (a fave of ...

... First Lady Michelle Obama) and Lavigne will provide looks inspired by Mia Wasikowska's Alice, Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter and Helena Bonham Carter's Red Queen.

The exhibit, open to the public, will run through Sept. 30 at FIDM's downtown Los Angeles campus.
