Walking the Yellow Brick Road at the Oz premeires

With Oz: The Great and Powerful opening over the weekend, we thought we'd look back at what the leading ladies wore to the premieres in London, Hollywood, and Tokyo. Down the yellow brick road we go!


Mila Kunis's ruffled Alexander McQueen dress looked like a leftover relic of the Civil War era. The ruffles and heavy draping overwhelmed her small frame, and the general look of this dress had me thinking it would be more comfortable at a hoe down rather than a film premiere. Rachel Weisz looked stunning in a slinky 1940's inspired gown from Micheal Kors. The fitted bodice, belt, and ruching at the hip complemented her gorgeous figure, and the color, while dangerously close to washing her out, looked lovely paired with her dark hair and berry colored lip. Michelle Williams stood out against the yellow carpet in a beautiful royal blue tea length dress from Burberry. The photographs picked up the subtle texture of the feathers, including hints of emerald.  She broke up the dress with a black leather belt to complement her small waist as well as give the eye some interest.


Mila paired a tea length 50's inspired frock from Dolce and Gabbana with bow-topped pumps in a similar shade. To bring some color to the look she added a pair of over-sized vintage looking purple earrings, and kept her hair soft to avoid looking too much like a retro prom queen. Rachel turned heads in a simple red gown by Victoria Beckham. She wore her hair slicked back in a bun and kept her make up clean, which gave this look a kind of sporty chic vibe. Overall I find this a bit blah, though it does show off her amazing figure. Michelle wore a bejeweled dress from Prada with strappy black heels. The right side has a high slit that showed off a tiny pair of black boy shorts. She wore heavy 60's inspired black eyeliner, which gives this look distinct Mod vibes. She's also started growing out her pixie cut, a look she's been sporting for some time now. This makes me a bit sad, as the pixie looked perfect on her, but then again, there's always a time to try something new!



Unfortunately, only Ms. Weisz was able to attend the premiere in Tokyo, as the other two actresses were busy with prior commitments. Rachel sported soft curls parted to one side, reminiscent of Old Hollywood, a rampant trend on the red carpet this season. She wore a strapless satin dress by Lanvin; its deep raspberry color looking lovely paired with her dark hair. She went with a dark smokey eye and nude lips to play up the femme fatale vibes. It must have been cold in Japan, because she was also often seen covered up with a furry white coat!
