Style Icons on the New Show “Once Upon a Time”

Have you heard about the new show coming to ABC this fall? It’s called Once Upon a Time and, frankly, I‘m beyond excited.

Created by former Lost executive producers (so you know right there that it has serious potential for awesomeness), Once Upon a Time is about a town caught between two worlds: ours and the land of fairytales. A woman named Emma Swan comes to town and finds out from her long-lost son that the people living in town are stuck in both worlds and don’t even know it.

Check out the trailer for Once Upon a Time, because my words can’t even do it justice:

Sooooo coooool. I can’t wait for fall.

As you may have noticed, there are some very pretty and stylish ladies on the show. I consider them each to be current style icons.

Ginnifer GoodwinGinnifer Goodwin, who plays Snow White/Sister Mary Margaret, is just plain adorable. You can see here that she chopped her hair into a cute pixie cut for the premier of her current movie Something Borrowed. Super sculpted brows and a neutral lip make it so all you see is her cuteness (with a bit of extra sass.)

Jennifer MorrisonJennifer Morrison plays Emma Swan. You may remember her from the first seasons of House MD or recent episodes of How I Met Your Mother. I love that she’s gone blonde recently. It really suits her skin. Plus, red lipstick matching her red dress = meow!

Lana ParrillaLana Parrilla plays the Evil Queen/Regina in Once Upon a Time, and she can really pull it off. Lana’s been on a bunch of shows including Swingtown, Windfall and 24. Also rocking the short hair, Lana pulls of a red lip along with a slate, low-cut ruffled top.

As you can see, there are some inspiring ladies on the upcoming Once Upon a Time, not just for their beauty, but for their acting prowess as well.

Another thing I’m excited about for Once Upon a Time: total inspiration for fairytale makeup.

Also starring in Once Upon a Time:

  • Robert Carlyle as Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold
  • Jamie Dornan as Sheriff Graham
  • Jared Gilmore as Henry
  • Josh Dallas as Prince Charming/John Doe
  • Raphael Sbarge as Jiminy Cricket/Archie

Are you going to watch the show come the fall TV season? Are you as excited as I am? Because I could just burst.

  1. Sounds so cool and interesting! I can’t wait either! 🙂

  2. “Lost” was one of my favorite shows, so I will definitely watch this. I was starting to think Jennifer Morrison was going to be the mother on “How I Met Your Mother” – well probably not! And I know Ginnifer Goodwin wears wigs in all of her roles now because she likes to keep her hair short in real life. I didn’t see “Something Borrowed” yet but she’s wearing a wig in the entire movie.

    • I wondered that about Jennifer Morisson’s character in HIMYM, but I’m glad she’s not the mom. Her character on there just shouldn’t be with Ted.

      Also, it looks like Ginnifer Goodwin shows off her natural hair sans-wig in the ‘real world’ parts of Once Upon a Time” and then a crazy long wig when she’s playing Snow White.

  3. omg this show looks amazing! yay for new shows to watch, I can’t wait until this premieres!
