I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to review an advanced screening of Oz the Great and Powerful, which stars James Franco as Oz, a magician from Kansas who becomes a wizard. Also in the film are beauties Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis, & Rachel Weisz as three battling witches: Glinda, Theodora, & Evanora, respectively. The movie premieres on Friday nationwide, but if you just can’t wait to hear about the spoiler-free juicy details, check out my review on Movie Buzzers.

In addition, the lovely ladies of the movie have been making the global rounds at premieres & press events, wearing the best of the best, including Elie Saab, Jason Wu, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Burberry, Michael Kors, Alexander McQueen, Atelier Versace, & so on. To see the more from the trio of Style Darlings, check out my recent Cover Craze post, featuring the glamorous actresses on the cover of In Style. Which of these red carpet looks is your favorite?

Watch This Style: Stuart Weitzman’s Finale To “Walking After Midnight,” Directed by James Franco!

For the last three weeks, I’ve been sharing the latest video campaign from Stuart Weitzman, directed by James Franco, & starring Dancing with the Stars beauty Petra Nemcova. The most recent, & finale, of the vignettes hit the web & now Style Darling has it for you! Check out the full-length short film, featuring each episode, & then some! Of course, this all happens to a revved up remake of Patsy Kline’s “Walking After Midnight,” which I haven’t been able to get out of my head all month long!

What do you think about the ad campaign? Are you a fan of Stuart Weitzman designs? Do you like Franco’s point of view for the heels? Happy Styling!

Watch This Style: Stuart Weitzman’s Third Episode With The DAGGER Pumps!

Yes, another Wednesday has passed, which means that it’s time for the third installment of Stuart Weitzman‘s “Walking After Midnight” series, featuring model Petra Nemcova, as directed by James Franco. In this vignette, Petra is donning the Dagger pump ($375.00$385.00), walking down the city streets in nothing but some hot pants & a boyfriend blazer.  After the first two videos, I’m not sure what else to expect since we have at least one more video to anticipate. Perhaps what would have been really fantastic is a mash-up of all of the videos?  Check out to links for Episode 1 & Episode 2! Happy Styling!

Watch This Style: Stuart Weitzman’s 2nd Video for “Walking After Midnight,” Directed By James Franco!

Last week, I very promptly shared with readers the debut short film, directed by Oscar-nominated actor James Franco, for shoe designer, Stuart Weitzman, to the tune of Patsy Cline’s “Walking After Midnight.” The first of four episodes in the series was called The Backflip, & now for the encore vignette, which is called Closecall.

I love the slim, super sexy heel on the shoes worn by model Petra Nemcova, which I think would be hard to stay balanced in, but sometimes you just gotta wear amazing shoes, even if you know you’ve got somewhere to go.  Check out the video & wait til Wednesday, October 17th for the 3rd installation of videos! Happy Styling!

Watch This Style: James Franco Directs Petra Nemcova For Stuart Weitzman (Episode 1: The Backflip)!

Like all fashionable Style Darlings, more often than not, a pair of shoes will do the trick.  I don’t care how shallow that sounds, if you’re nodding or grinning, then you know what I mean & I don’t need to expand on that any further.  Apparently, footwear designer Stuart Weitzman wants to share the shoe love with a series of short films, directed by Oscar-nominated actor James Franco. According to an article on In Style, the brand hopes to spread the message that “no matter how high the heel, Stuart Weitzman stilettos can take you from day to night.”

Model, Dancing with the Stars dancer, & activist Petra Nemcova walks to Patsy Cline’s “Walking After Midnight” in this less-than-a-minute vignette, entitled “The Backflip.”  This is the first of four episodes that have been posted to the Stuart Weitzman Facebook page, which will also premiere the subsequent videos every Wednesday for the rest of October.  What do you think of the multi-talented Franco’s work here? Do you buy & wear Stuart Weitzman shoes? What footwear trends are you following this season?

Silver Screen Style / Watch This Style: Get Swept Away by ‘Oz: The Great & Powerful!’

I was just about to call it quits on the blogging front today- until I saw this trailer! I’d been keeping up with all the latest news around casting & the production of Oz: The Great & Powerful on Movie Buzzers, especially when I heard that the lovely Michelle Williams was going to play Glinda! THe movie is a prequel to the classic Wizard of Oz, starring James Franco as Oz himself, the legendary wizard who started it all.  Also in two are Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, & Zach Braff.  There’s nothing more exciting to me than a fabulously colorful fantasy movie like this, that makes the kid inside all of us smile.

Okay, okay, I realize this isn’t entirely style-related, but when I watch this, even though the trailer shows very little of Michelle, I was reminded how beautiful she looks with long hair.  Let’s hope that more of her on-screen characters in the future don longer locks.  Check out the trailer for the movie which premieres March 8th 2013! Happy Styling!
