Mirror, mirror, at the mall, which Snow White style beats them all? This past Friday marked the release of the second Snow White film out this year. Both movies have the same fabled heroine, but the flicks' similarities end there.  Most pronounced among their differences are their distinct styles.  

This spring's "Mirror Mirror" — starring Julia Roberts and Lily Collins — was a visual candy bar, offering bursts of color worthy of Kate Spade's Pinterest board. Fantastical designer Eiko Ishioka's inspiration seemed born of a Mackenzie Childs and Valentino lovechild. Layers upon layers of silk in Snow White's many jewel-toned frocks colored her to be the perfect peony of a porcelain-skinned Disney princess.

The more recent "Snow White and the Huntsman" (garnering so much buzz, it's now trending as #SWATH on Twitter), drew from a darker pool of inspiration fitting of a truly evil stepmother. Three-time Academy Award winning designer Colleen Atwood used leather, rooster feathers, and thousands of real, iridescent Thai beetle wings to create the shadowy silhouettes for Charlize Theron's evil queen Ravenna.  

Much like her portrayal of Bella in 'Twilight,' Kristen Stewart's Snow White smiles infrequently, whereas Lily Collins' take in 'Mirror Mirror' was much peppier, a dichotomy also reflected in their respective wardrobes.Universal, Relativity
