Lewis Carroll’s little heroine — and her personal style — will be placed under the fashion spotlight at the Victoria & Albert Museum of Childhood in London starting in May. The exhibition, “The Alice Look,” marks the book’s 150th anniversary, with a focus on Alice’s character and wardrobe.

From images photographed by Annie Leibovitz for American Vogue and book covers designed by Vivienne Westwood to Liberty’s spring 2015 Alice in Wonderland-themed fabric, the exhibition will showcase a range of items that reflect the character’s influence on fashion.

Some 40 objects will also be on display, including sketches, designs, illustrations, ad campaigns and film footage of pop videos, and runway shows featuring Gwen Stefani, Avril Lavigne and Aerosmith.

“Not only illustrators, but the world’s best-known designers, stylists and photographers have restyled Lewis Carroll’s Alice,” curator Kiera Vaclavik told WWD. “Versace named Alice as one of his heroines. Westwood returns endlessly to her in her work. We are excited to be showing Alice as a style icon for the first time.”

“The Alice Look” will run from May 2 to Nov. 1.
