February 28 director Sam Raimi’s Wizard of Oz origin story Oz The Great and Powerful premiered in London. The premiere had a fun Yellow Brick Road set design and yellow carpet with a giant “O” for the film’s stars to pose in front of.
James Franco stars as Oscar Diggs, the man who becomes Oz, but it’s the ladies that really stood out.
42-year-old Rachel Weisz, who wore a strapless Michael Kors, enjoyed playing evil witch Evanora “It was really fun. Bad girls definitely have more fun, I think. I grew up watching black and white movies with my mum and we used to watch Bette Davis, Jean Harlow and so on. It used to be very fashionable for women to play bad girls but I think it’s gone out of fashion so I think it’s a good idea to make a resurgence.”
Michelle Williams (32,) who plays Glinda, looked radiant in a peacock blue Burberry Prosum dress despite news of her recent split from Jason Segel. She finished off her look with Jimmy Choo shoes.
Mila Kunis (29) wore a ruffled Alexander McQueen Spring 2013 gown. She plays Evanora’s younger, innocent sister Theodora.
Oz the Great and Powerful’s US release date is March 8, 2013.
