We haven’t stopped thinking about Anne Hathaway‘s role in Alice in Wonderland (out March 5th) since pictures surfaced this summer, but just today the star revealed what it was like playing the illustrious White Queen. “I kept saying to myself, ‘She is a punk-rock, vegan pacifist.’ So I listened to a lot of Blondie and I watched a lot of Greta Garbo,” she told JustJared.com. As for the dress she wore, well, it’s fair to say Hathaway was smitten: “I’m wearing a dress designed by Colleen Atwood. It’s grand and the most fragile dress I’ve ever worn in my life. I love it so much,” she said. “If you ever had a dream of being a fairy princess, this is the dress you would wear.”
