I have had a healthy obsession with Snow White since I was about seven, when I received my very own personalised Snow White book, it had my name and sisters names in it, and I thought it was pretty damn amazing. Check out the personalised pie Snow White made me, and my wonderfully artistic attempts at drawing Snow White and the Wicked Witch:

As an 'adult' I have taken the Snow White look into my own aesthetic, black hair courtesy of Nice n Easy and pale complexion courtesy of avoiding the sun (not hard in the UK) and Max Factor foundation. Also I did take the look literally as a teenager and wore Snow White costumes to festivals and gigs I thought I was being cute and ironic?! I think there is something so dramatic about women with black hair and pale skin with ruby red lips, that is why I am often drawn to these modern day Snow Whites:

It seems that Hollywood is still obsessed with Snow White, as of this moment there are two different versions of the alabaster skinned goddess in the works. There is 'Snow White and The Huntsman' set to star Kirsten Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen. Then there is 'The Brothers Grimm: Snow White' which will see Julia Roberts play the Evil Queen and Armie Hammer as the Prince, but no Snow White yet. Here is one of my favourite Snow White inspired pieces, courtesy of Rammstein:
