The last few days have been a whirlwind! I just returned this morning from a 2 1/2 day press trip in Los Angeles for the Alice Through the Looking Glass red carpet premiere. My travel, accommodations, and activities were covered by Disney, but all thoughts are my own. Note: Amazon affiliate links included in this post. Photos that do not say ©Disney were taken by me or members of our group.
It’s difficult to sum up such an amazing night in words OR in pictures, but I’ll try my best to invite you in to my red carpet experience so that you can feel like you were walking along with me.
P!nk Performs Just Like Fire On Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Before the red carpet festivities officially kicked off, P!nk performed her hit song from Alice Through the Looking Glass – Just Like Fire – plus White Rabbit.
Imagine our surprise when we arrived on Hollywood Blvd for the P!nk concert and were escorted right to the front row. Here’s proof of just how close we were (taken by the pre-concert MC, Chuck Dukas):
What an incredible experience to be SO close to the stage! I made eye contact with P!nk several times – we totally had a connection. Her energy and her joy were contagious. Not to mention that she is crazy talented and beautiful!
And here’s the second song she performed – White Rabbit. We were lucky enough to see her perform each song twice. Bonus: see if you can spot me right at 0:25 peeking under her arm in the front row.
Walking the Red Carpet for Alice Through the Looking Glass
The red carpet was crawling with stars – including Johnny Depp (The Hatter) and Sacha Baron Cohen (Time), both of which I saw just across the carpet from me.
Here are a few of my favorite pics from the red carpet:
And, yes, I was dressed up and walking the red carpet, too!
Once I got to the end of the red carpet, I found a display of HSN’s new Alice Through the Looking Glass collection. I kind of wanted it ALL. How gorgeous is all of this??
We were ushered in to the El Capitan theater to see the movie…I liked it even MORE the 2nd time watching it! My review will be coming out early on Friday just in time for the theatrical opening (You can see Alice Through the Looking Glass in theaters everywhere May 27!).
When the movie was over, we had the chance to attend the amazingly whimsical after party at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel just down the street. We were surrounded by stars, good food, the Alice themed makeup from Urban Decay and nail polish from OPI, and activities. I chose to take it all in and enjoy the night with friends.
It was a magical night!
Make time to go see Alice Through the Looking Glass this weekend! It opens this Friday, May 27, in theaters everywhere!
