It’s near impossible to not know the Wizard of Oz story. Hey, I know the plot and I haven’t ever seen the film – so it can be done! With the release of the new ‘Oz’ film, I was suddenly reminded of the 2005 Keira Knightley editorial for Vogue, aka. one of my favourite photo shoots of all time. Now, I know that some of you will be moaning and groaning about Keira – but there is no denying it – this shoot is perfection! (P.s. I’m not afraid to admit my shameless love for Miss Knightley! Come on; Pride and Prejudice, Atonement, and even Bend it like Beckham were amazing!)

Honestly though, how perfectly does this shoot tell the story? Everytime I look at this editorial (which is more often that you’d think – really!) I fall more and more in love with it. Whether it’s the styling, setting, or snuffly little Toto, this shoot is it for me. I love the red shoes especially – and how perfectly would they match one of the red bow bags by Nica? Even though I’m quite terrible at going to the movies (I love a cosy night in with popcorn, a blanket, and of course – my guy!) I’m definitely feeling tempted by the Oz movie. Have any of you seen it yet? And of course, how was it?!

  1. This is one of my favorites, too! I haven’t seen it in ages either. :) Keira is actually one of my favorite actresses. She has this crazy etherial beauty and makes awesome, interesting acting choices. <3

  2. I adore this!!! I had only seen the first pic before, but the rest are wonderful as well!
    And Oh my! The original movie is a classic! As a lover of all things OZ (classic film, books, new movie, and most of all the musical Wicked) I would recommend it being seen at least once in a lifetime.
    An I did see the new OZ movie. I adored it! It was lighthearted and sweet. The colors were mesmerizing and it was just fun. Another interesting thing was that the opening credits were just as mesmerizing as the rest of the film. I would recommend both films!

  3. I remember this. So beautiful. What really thrilled me about this was seeing so many great artists let loose and inhabit a character other than themselves. The photograph with Chuck Close is my absolute favorite.

    Thank you for sharing!
