Our favorite looks this week—plucked from our Look of the Day section—were all sorts of magical, from the Oscars to Oz. Nina Dobrev feted the Oscars in a black and white Naeem Khan gown, InStyle cover girl Mila Kunis brought the drama in a custom Atelier Versace design, Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence had an epic night in Dior Haute Couture, Miranda Kerr shined at Victoria’s secret in a sunny dress and ankle-strap Brian Atwood heels, and Michelle Williams walked the yellow brick road in the London wearing a feathered Burberry Prorsum bustier dress.

The bewitching trio of Oz The Great and Powerful continued their world tour last night in London, premiering the film at the Empire Theatre on Leicester Square in the heart of the city’s theater district. InStyle’s March cover girls Rachel Weisz (in Michael Kors), Michelle Williams (in Burberry Prorsum), and Mila Kunis (in Alexander McQueen), walked the yellow brick road alongside the “wizard” himself, James Franco. The film hits theaters in the U.S. March 8.

When it comes to fabulous costumes, there’s no place like Disney. To coincide with the March 8 release of Oz The Great and Powerful, Disney Store designers have created two adult-sized, limited-edition couture costumes inspired by two of the tale’s iconic witches, Theodora (the Wicked Witch of the West) and Glinda (the Good Witch), played by InStyle’s March cover girls Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams. Only 300 editions of each look were made, and you can shop both the Wicked ($400) and Good ($350) costumes now on disneystore.com (along with an entire collection of Oz-inspired goodies). “I spent a lot of the shoot in a leather corset, wired up in a harness, and flying around in costume,” Kunis told InStyle of playing the West’s most infamous Wicked Witch. And while broomstick flying might not be on your agenda, it’s still fun to imagine wearing a pointy hat inspired by Theodora’s infamous black topper. Unless, that is, you’re more of a Glinda girl. Vote below and tell us which witch are you: Good or Bad?

Ever since debuting a pixie in spring of 2010, Michelle Williams hasn’t looked back at her Dawson’s-era hairstyles—until now! The star, who is one-third of our March cover, revealed that growing out her hair is currently at the top of her to-do list. “I think I’m ready! It’s on its way, slowly but surely,” Williams told E! News, adding that the in-between phase was the only thing stopping her. “That’s why I’ve stayed with short hair for so long. That mid-stage is insufferable, it’s really hard on your self-esteem.” While we’ve never seen Williams’s strands looking anything less than flawless, we already know what every stage of her hair transformation will look like thanks to our Hollywood Makeover Tool.
And you can try the growing-it-out stages, too! Just upload your picture to try on her many lengths, then, share your makeover on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see what your friends think. You may be tempted to make a change yourself! Click the box below to start.
