Inspired By: Oz The Great and Powerful

If you saw my March movies post last week, then you know I'm very excited to see Oz The Great and Powerful. It looks like a wonderfully fun adventure fantasy! The movie is so rich with details, I'm a huge fan of Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz, the story is captivating, and it seems like a great way to escape for two hours.

If you need a refresher: A prequel to The Wizard of Oz, the story follows Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a circus magician, who is flown to the Land of Oz by a hot air balloon. He believes he's hit the jackpot of fame and fortune until he meets three witches (Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz), who don't think he's the great wizard that everyone's expecting. Will he be able to save the Land of Oz, figure out who is good and who is evil, and transform himself in the Wizard of Oz?

It comes out in theaters tomorrow!

Oscar Diggs AKA The Wizard of Oz
Inspired By: Oz The Great & Powerful -- Oz

Played by James Franco, Oscar Diggs is a small-time circus magician with questionable morals, who is hurled away in a hot air balloon to the Land of Oz, where he believes he'll get all the fame and fortune he wants. However he meets three witches, who tell him that a great wizard is expected by all, and that Oscar must pretend to be this wizard to save the Land of Oz.
As a man from 1900 (the year The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was published), Oscar is always seen in his formal attire, so to modernize it wear a navy blazer, black and white blouse, pants, blue t-strap heels, and a bowler hat. For a girlier version, try a blue trench coat, a blue and nude lace dress, black pumps, and a wide brim fedora (which I bought!). Don't forget a cute brown bag since Oscar is never without his.

Inspired By: Oz The Great & Powerful -- Theodora
Played by Mila Kunis, Theodora is a beautiful but naive witch, who is protected by her older sister, Evanora. She wants peace to come to the Land of Oz and truly believes that the prophecy will come true and that a great wizard will restore order to their land. To dress like the young witch, who favors black, burgandy, and leather have fun in a black dress with leather accents, a fedora, and sparkly heels. For going on a wild adventure opt for a pale pink blouse, peplum blazer, faux leather pants, tall boots, and a red floppy hat.

P.S. -- Check out the Urban Decay palettes for Theodora and Glinda!

Inspired By: Oz The Great & Powerful -- Glinda
Played by Michelle Williams, Glinda the Good Witch rules over a kingdom of peaceful, kind-hearted people. Though she is compassionate and benevolent, she is fiercely protective of her people. She also sees that Oscar is not who he pretends to be, but knows that good lies within him. Glinda is as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside, so she wears sparkling fabrics in light colors -- go for sparkly gold jacket, white lace dress, pretty necklace, and gold t-strap heels. Or wear a jacket with ruffles, silver brocade dress, silver strappy heels, and feather headband.

Inspired By: Oz The Great & Powerful -- Evanora
Played by Rachel Weisz, Evanora is a witch to be feared; she exudes confidence and power, and has positioned herself as the royal advisor and protector of Emerald City. She is also Theodora's over-protective sister. Evanora has a penchant for all things green and feathery, so don a sleeveless green dress with a flowy cardigan, stone necklace, and black booties. Or for even more of a femme fatale look, go for a black lace dress, green jacket with faux leather sleeves, green necklace, and black pumps.
