Snow White is probably one of the best-loved Princesses, thanks to the very successful 1939 Disney film, and thanks to that film, the character has become incredibly iconic figure with her immense beauty: her pale skin, jet black hair and her ruby red lips. The Disney depiction of Snow White was of course very close in keeping with the way the Brother's Grimm described her, in their original story:
"...who has skin white as snow, lips red as blood, and hair black as ebony."
I know that a lot of film lovers and fans have been complaining about all of the comparisons between the two upcoming takes on the Snow White story in "Mirror, Mirror" and "Snow White and the Huntsman", but I always find it interesting to take a look at how different people take something and interpret it in completely different ways.
For a really good example of how a film (in this case The Hunger Games) "might have been" if a different Director had taken it on, check out this awesome post in Entertainment Weekly.
