Oz the Great and Powerful is out today in theaters, 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 traveled 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 formfitting Atelier Versace number, these starlets certainly turned up the evening elegance tenfold for Oz. See every moment from the promo tour right here.
At Milan Fashion Week, the men of Dolce & Gabbana have a history of sending powerful-looking women down the runways. Whether it's with heavy contouring, royal-inspired headdresses, or bold eyebrows, the beauty look for the Italian luxury brand is almost a perfect blend of strength and femininity. In honor of its show later today in Milan, click through to see 11 of the most memorable beauty looks from Dolce & Gabbana's runways.
Zoe Saldana stood out in a boldly striped Dolce & Gabbana number at the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards this afternoon. While the green and white stripes may be the outfit's most eye-catching detail, it's worth taking note of the dress's subtle rose embroidery, too. The brunette beauty did right by styling the look with a minimalist's approach, only adding on a few dainty rose-themed accessories. To finish, she kept her hair down and wavy, then rounded it all out with a pair of crisp white (and green-lined) pointy-toe pumps by Casadei. What's the verdict?
What do actresses Jessica Chastain and Emma Roberts and model Irina Shayk all have in common? Well, you're looking at it. They were all recently spotted toting around stunning green-hued bags, which called major attention to their respective off-duty looks, too. Jessica sported her Dolce & Gabbana Miss Sicily purse with a black coat and black-and-white boots in NYC; Irina, clad in a black Winter coat, also carried her statement green zip-detailed tote; and Emma showed off her green-studded Marni bag, which complemented her brown shearling leather jacket and bright fuchsia scarf perfectly. Any punchy bag has the power to change an outfit, but we'd say emerald green is the one to add to your shopping list because it's 2013's Pantone color of the year. Score similar green bags we're loving below.
Dressed in head-to-toe Dolce & Gabbana, Chloë Moretz looked far more polished, sophisticated, and well, grown up than her 15 years would suggest. That said, we love that she took a decidedly playful approach to her menswear-inspired look at the Movie 43 LA premiere, which in turn, supplied the age-appropriate twist Chloë embodies so well, even while wearing the most high fashion of pieces. It's all in the details here. Look to the sweet embroidery along the satin lapels of her black tuxedo jacket, to her ruffled white bib-front blouse, and to her bow-tie satin heels for proof of the actress's attention to feminine and playful accents. Chloë steered clear of statement jewelry and a dramatic red lip, which can sometimes go hand in hand with the masculine dressing package. In effect, she kept her ensemble fresh, streamlined, and totally relatable.
You could easily re-create her black-and-white outfit, but if you want to give it your own daytime spin, swap out the tapered trousers for a pair of high-waisted dark jeans. Then, trade the heels for a pair of lace-up oxfords, which will keep the menswear vibe intact. Below, we've mapped out all the pieces you'll need to follow suit (literally).
At the premiere of her new play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Scarlett Johansson stole the show with crimson lips and frosted eye shadow. The actress was done up by makeup artist Gianpaolo Ceciliato for Dolce & Gabbana, the same designer who fabricated her ensemble. To create the look, Gianpaolo started with a base of foundation and blush. He then lined Scarlett's eyes in black and swiped on the brand's Smooth Eye Color Quad in Bouquet ($59) for a frosted look.
Gianpaolo created Scarlett's, well, scarlet lips by applying Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick in Tropical ($34) before layering on a lip gloss in a similar shade. The result was perfectly polished and seriously seductive — just like Scarlett herself.
Even when she's wearing a soft blush hue, there's no denying Megan Fox's babe factor. The actress made an appearance wearing a feminine strapless lace gown by Dolce & Gabbana. For an added burst of color, Megan donned a gorgeous pair of pink rhinestone earrings, matching ring, and a hard box clutch. Long romantic waves completed her old Hollywood red-carpet ensemble. Are you feeling it?

Selena Gomez was spotted rocking a camouflage jacket, ripped denim, and her trusty Dolce & Gabbana tote ($1,195) while chatting on the phone in Century City. The singer isn't the first celebrity to rock the trendy print, but we love how she paired hers with gradient sunglasses, a nude wrap scarf, and brown platform pumps. Get in on the celeb-approved trend by styling a camouflage jacket with ripped jeans, a wrap scarf, and brown pumps for lunch with friends or swap in these spotted Madewell loafers ($200, originally $248) for a day of errands.
Eva Mendes was a vision of retro sexiness in her black lace Dolce & Gabbana dress at the 2012 AFI Fest red carpet in LA. We can't stop staring at her entire ensemble, especially her sheer lace sleeves and sweetheart neckline. We also love the demure knee-length hemline of her little black dress, as well as her choice of accessories: black Brian Atwood pumps, an embellished black Sergio Rossi clutch, a cuff bracelet, and oversize drop earrings. To get Eva's nighttime ladylike look, shop one of our favorite black lace dresses below. Remember to pick something fitted, preferably with a longer hemline, to show off your figure and really nail that retro vibe.
