Confession: I used to pretend that movie stars don't really look that beautiful in person. It wasn't to be cruel to them; more to make me feel better about my pedestrian looks. But after walking the red carpet, er yellow brick carpet, at Disney's El Capitan Theater for the Oz the Great and Powerful premiere last week, I am going to just tell it like it is.
There are some women who are so beautiful that it hurts. Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz all make the list. Trust me. I got up close and personal and photobombed them all last week.
And only my husband even noticed. OK, him and a few of my friends (in case you're wondering, I'm waaaaaay in the background in the shot above, but I got a true photobomb with Michelle and showed up more than a few times behind Mila and a few of the other stars in this star-studded cast).
But you get the point. After all my fretting and forcing a friend to take a night off to dress me in a red carpet outfit, I was never going to hold a candle to the stars.

And I've decided I'm OK with that. Oh, I'm still jealous (hellloooo, have you looked at these women?).
But I got to sneak down the red carpet with only a few of my mom blogger pals taking my photo while I worried that my Spanx were sneaking up where they shouldn't. These poor ladies had to stand there for-freaking-EVER with bright lights in their eyes while photographer after photographer screamed their names and made them look this-a-way and that-a-way.
There's a price to pay for being insanely beautiful. And yes, they are ...
Check out the red carpet looks from Oz.
Think you could pull any of them off? Would you WANT to?

Ashton's squeeze is always sexy, but Mila really made her eyes pop with some black eye liner and some gold shimmery eye shadow. Maybe she used the Urban Decay palette named for her Oz character, Theodora? Her earrings are African rubies by Sutra.
Some called it a wardrobe malfunction, but up close and personal it was easy to tell there was nothing malfunctioning about this white Prada gown and the black underneath that Michelle Williams paired with a Kate Young for Target clutch (yes, that Target).
Rachel Weisz went with a fellow Brit, wearing a gown by Victoria Beckham down the yellow brick road! The orange was a perfect contract to her dark hair and eyes.
Mila paired this gorgeous A-line Dolce & Gabbana dress with Christian Louboutin shoes.
Jessica Simpson's BFF Cacee Cobb is expecting her first child with husband Donald Faison, who was on hand to support buddy Zach Braff who plays Finley in Oz. And she still manages to look smokin' in black. The pregnancy boobs certainly didn't hurt!
Even the teenage stars are cute enough to eat! Joey King plays China Girl in Oz, and her dress was perfect for her: classic and sweet.
