Official Movie Poster

We’re off to see the Wizard…sort of. A prequel to the beloved classic The Wizard of Oz, Disney’s latest release, Oz: The Great and Powerful, hit theaters last week with a bang!

The film follows the adventures of Oz (James Franco), a magician from a small town in Kansas, who is swept up by a tornado and lands in a strange place full of talking animals and larger-than-life scenery. For fans of the Judy Garland classic, this prequel offers a refreshing and lovable backstory for the magical land of Oz. Not to mention, Disney’s animations are absolutely breathtaking throughout!

If you haven’t seen the film, I promise not to give away any spoilers! You can, however, read a quick synopsis and find the trailer below.

Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character.

When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting.

Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful wizard but into a better man as well.

Oz is not only a fantastic movie, it’s actually a perfect source of fashion inspiration, too! Below, I’ve created a few outfits inspired by the film and its characters. Scroll down to view them all!

Oz, the Great and Powerful

The magician from Kansas may have questionable acts, but his style is right on target!

Steal Oz’s classic getup with a white button-up shirt tucked into a pair of black high-waisted jeans. Grab a black blazer to dress the look up, and slip on a pair of oxfords for a vintage twist. To pay tribute to his signature bow tie, wear a bow necklace for a cute look. If you’re feeling a bit fancy, add a fun fascinator clip to your hair to finish off this look, perfect for any wizard-in-training!

Theodora

The first person – er, witch – that Oz meets after landing in Oz is the beautiful Theodora, played by Mila Kunis. You can grab her edgy on-screen look with a few key pieces.

First, wear a flowy blouse with a pair of leather-look pants and a dark red blazer. Next, slip on fierce knee-high boots similar to the ones Theodora sports in the film. Wear a bold statement ring and a floppy hat for the perfect accessories. Finish the look off with a swipe of pretty polish from OPI’s Oz Collection in “I Theodora You” and finish with Urban Decay’s Theodora makeup palette.

Evanora

Evanora (Rachel Weisz) has a perfectly gorgeous, yet equally wicked style. To achieve her aesthetic, wear a gorgeous high-low sequin dress with a pair of strappy sandals. Accessorize with a feather headband, chandelier earrings, and a bold statement ring. To complement the outfit, wear a shade of glittery polish. (We love OPI’s “When Monkey’s Fly!”) An emerald pendant necklace completes the ensemble, and is a perfect replica for the one Evanora wears in the film!

China Girl

Don’t underestimate this cute little doll! China Girl is the perfect mix of sweet and sassy.

Get her look with a flirty lace dress in mint with a matching bow belt. Wear a cute pair of ballet flats for a girly look, and, as a tribute to her town, wear a fun tea cup ring. Complete the outfit with classic pearl earrings!

Glinda

Dress, Shoes, Headband, Earrings, Palette, Polish

The Good Witch of the land of Oz, Glinda has a style fit for a queen! Grab her royal appeal with a tulle skirt dress, and add a hint of sparkle with some glitter pumps. Faux diamond stud earrings and a feather-accented headband add the perfect glam touches to the outfit. Finish the look with Urban Decay’s makeup palette and OPI’s polish in “Don’t Burst My Bubble,” both inspired by Glinda herself.

Wicked Witch

Oz 247b debut

Dress, Shoes, Headband, Necklace, Bracelet, Polish

She’s mean, she’s green, and she has no heart. She’s the Wicked Witch of the West! To get her evil look, wear a black dress and edgy combat boots. Add a touch of green with a trendy statement necklace, and continue the edgy look with a studded faux-leather wrap bracelet. A feather headband winks to her infamous flying monkeys, and a swipe of OPI’s “What Wizardry Is This?” nail polish finishes off this wicked outfit.

What do you think?

    I love these looks, they are all so cute. But I saw this movie today and ended up leaving half way through because it was so horrible.

    The fashions are great. But do you really feel okay posting about this movie? It’s great that there are three lovely female actresses in lead roles, but it’s all about how a man is a catalyst. And also the depiction of the women is frustrating. They ALL have cleavage showing! Even the wicked witch. I don’t feel it’s right to post this about a movie that seems to be saying that nothing can really get going without a man coming in and getting it started.

    You sound like a real thrill, Sarah. If you get this upset about a movie you better close your eyes and plug your ears for the rest of your life or you’ll have a stroke by the time you’re 30. Get your feminist junk off of a FASHION WEBSITE.

    I saw this movie the weekend it came out and as I was watching it all I could think of was how amazingly smokin Mila Kunis looked in her outfits. Immediately after I watched the movie I went out and bought my version of her first outfit.

    -A thin, flowy, white buttoned down, collared top
    -instead of the all over leather pants, I opted for the leggings with a leather stripe down the seams
    -My current pair of black riding boots, with a low heel
    -I didn’t want to spend on a new coat, I just wore an old fitted red blazer
    -last but not least, because the pants on Mila seem high waisted I used a thick black belt, with a gold buckle, right over the top of the waitband of my leggings.

    “Fashion” does not and never should preclude women from being aware of the fact that the way we present ourselves within society and the models that we emulate impact the way we are treated within our relative communities. I applaud Sarah for drawing our attention to that issue.
    That being said, Shelby took advantage of an excellent opportunity with this film to explore several different types of styles in her article. I especially appreciate her inclusion of edgier pieces, as I often feel the CF emphasizes a sweeter look than I generally prefer for myself. Keep up the good work!

    The Second, Third, and Forth look are my style it’s a nice post and seriously for those of you complaining about posting on this movie, it is just a movie get over it, and for once it was nice to see something with more “edgier fashion” than the usual girly pastels and florals

    Cute outfits! Just a warning for potential buyers: I’ve tried that dress on at forever (sequin top with the high-low skirt) and it is not flattering!! The underskirt is not made of good quality material (surprise) and clings like crazy.

    It’s an adorable outfit though, maybe just sub something similar in. I love forever 21 but their stuff is so hit or miss that it’s risky to buy online so I thought I’d just share this.

    Again though, beautifully styled outfit.

    Watched this movie yesterday. I don’t really like it. I found it boring and very cliche. But I love all their outfit. Can’t stop thinking about the black glittering dress the witch wear.

    Love the outfits! They capture each characters’ style wonderfully without being too costumey. I haven’t seen the movie yet; I heard from a few friends that it wasn’t as good as it was hyped up to be.
    I was also going to comment on the issue of the phrase “feminist junk”, but Nelle put it more gracefully than I could have.

    Just saw the movie today and was disappointed. I thought it would be better, especially with such a great cast. However, I really like the looks from this post!

    Also I do agree with Sarah that the movie did put the women in stereotypical roles. Theodora was willing to give up being good just because a man she just met and barely knew flirted with her sister (supposedly).

    I love the outfits you created, but the movie is definitely not worth the hype, and I hate the wizard even more than I usually do because he’s a womanizer in this film.
