A yellow brick road stood in for the red carpet at the Oz the Great and Powerful premieres in LA and London, and Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis, and Rachel Weisz arrived looking like they'd stepped out of a fairy tale. In honour of the film's official release today, click through to see the top looks of the movie tour. Be sure to check out our gallery of the iconic beauty looks from the women of Oz too!
Oz the Great and Powerful is out now in cinemas, but the red-carpet (or should we say, yellow brick road) glamour leading up to the film's premiere actually started weeks ago. To promote the film, Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis, and Rachel Weisz travelled around the world — Moscow, Tokyo, London, and Los Angeles, to be exact — bringing their individual brand of glamour to each city for the movie's debut. From understated Michael Kors and statement-making Lanvin to peacock-feathered Burberry and one sexy form-fitting Atelier Versace number, these starlets certainly turned up the evening elegance tenfold for Oz. See every moment from the promo tour right here.
Tomorrow we'll all get a new look at the Emerald City with Oz the Great and Powerful, but before Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis, and Rachel Weisz put us under their spells, we're taking a look back at the many other women of Oz. The original children's book, The Wonderful Wizard of Ozby L. Frank Baum, has spurred many adaptations over the last decade, from the big screen to Broadway. See who else has donned crowns, gone green, or worn the ruby slippers over the years.
Fans of the classic film The Wizard of Oz will be transported back to that wonderful world when Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful hits cinemas on March 7. Oscar ‘Oz’ Diggs (James Franco) is a conniving, womanising circus magician who ends up in the Land of Oz when a tornado whisks him away from Kansas. Upon his arrival, he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle), who are all expecting him after a prophesy. He’s drawn to all the beautiful women but must work who is good and evil before the battle for Oz takes place, giving him a chance to prove whether he is the great man the people of Oz believe him to be.

When Oz the Great and Powerful alights in cinemas this week, we'll be re-acquainted with some classic movie characters that first graced the screen in The Wizard of Oz 74 years ago. Since this is a prequel of sorts and focuses on the wizard (played by James Franco), we don't see all of the characters you know and love (sorry, Dorothy), but there are a few younger, slightly different versions of a few familiar Oz denizens. Click through to see how the shiny new class stacks up against the originals.
It’s the first day of Autumn and the start of a great movie month. The big awards season players have had their moment in the cinema, making way for a wide mix of new releases.

Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis, and Rachel Weisz all travelled to London to promote their film, Oz the Great and Powerful, and each brought her styling A-game to the latest red carpet premiere. Rachel was understated in a nude lace Michael Kors number, Michelle was the boldest of the bunch in her peacock feather-embroidered Burberry dress, and Mila was undeniably feminine in a strapless ruffled gown. Before that, Mila and Michelle both exuded dark glamour at the Moscow premiere. Get a closer look at what they've worn so far inside.
James Franco had his leading ladies, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis, by his side on the yellow brick road carpet at the UK premiere of Oz the Great and Powerful last night. Rachel donned a nude Michael Kors gown to join her co-stars in London after they premiered the film in Russia without her the night before. James, Michelle and Mila got dressed up for the Moscow debut after a busy day of promotional appearances.
Although Rachel missed out on the fun in Russia, she did make the trek to Japan last week. Rachel and James popped up in Tokyo to premiere Oz last Wednesday, and they'll keep up their busy schedule as the March 7 release date nears.
Michelle Williams showed off her legs in a Victoria Beckham dress posing alongside James Franco and Mila Kunis at an Oz the Great and Powerful photo call in Moscow yesterday. Michelle smiled big at the press event, which came just one day after the news emerged that she and boyfriend Jason Segel have split. She also stayed focused on the movie at a Q&A session with Mila, James and director Sam Raimi.
Michelle, much like her Oz the Great and Powerful co-stars, has been busy on the promotional trail for the film. She recently made stops on Good Morning America and the Late Show With David Letterman last week in NYC. James, however, has been doing his part overseas. He linked up with their fourth co-star, Rachel Weisz, to premiere the film in Tokyo last week. Mila, meanwhile, has been balancing another project with her Oz promotional duties. She popped up on the set of The Angriest Man in Brooklyn in NYC last week.
James Franco and Rachel Weisz turned up the glamour at the Japanese premiere of Oz the Great and Powerful in Tokyo last night. Rachel, who plays the Wicked Witch of the East, wore a red satin gown and covered up from the cold in a white furry jacket, while James embraced his Emerald City character in a green suit. They were representing the film in Japan since their co-stars were busy with appearances of their own in the States. Michelle Williams appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman in NYC last night to talk about her new movie and her life with Matilda. Meanwhile, Mila Kunis was busy in LA celebrating her new role as a Gemfields global ambassador.
