SEE. Ever wondered what ΓÇô or maybe we should say whom — turned the wicked witch evil? That question is answered in Oz the Great and Powerful, Disney’s new prequel to the classic Wizard of Oz film. James Franco plays the “great” wizard, who’s no more than a small time travel circus magician with an even smaller moral compass. A tornado (obviously!), sends him to Oz, where he gets the opportunity to prove that he’s more that just a shadowy showman (though those skills do come in handy!). We’ll admit, we not Franco’s biggest fans, there’s something swarmy about the guy, but it works for him in this role. There are some fun new characters to adore in Oz, and while this story starts off super slow, it does start to pick up the pace towards its conclusion. Be forewarned: this tale may be a little too scary for young children. One thing is for certain: good or bad witch, these ladies’ wardrobes are FIERCE! Oz the Great and Powerful, opens today nationwide in 3D.

DRESS. We’re always excited to check out Kiss Nails, especially when nail guru and TV guide reality star Katie Cazorla is on hand to share her collaboration with the brand. TV DivaGal was in a rush when I arrived Alice’s Tea Cup to see the line. “Maybe you could just do my pinkies,” I suggested. Katie tossed out that notion, pulling over two nail techs to hook up my fingertips in no time. And with no drying time, I was out the door without a smudge. Fast and fabulous! Try Katie’s styles: Flirt and Romance!

SNACK. Almonds are good for you ΓÇô but not if you eat the whole bag at once! That’s why we love this adorable snack tin from the Almond Board of California. You get one perfect size serving of almonds in style!

PERFECT. Image Gal has been playing around with a lot of BB creams. I love GarnierΓÇÖs new Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream for combination to oily skin in Medium/Deep. ItΓÇÖs oil free, evens skin tone and delivers all day shine control. My prayers have finally been answered, and my skin looks and feels fantastic!

WATCH. You know you love to buy the clothes you see on TV. With the second season of Fashion Star starting tonight, you’ll be able to buy the night’s winning collection within days! Fashion Star airs Friday, March 8 at 8 p.m. on NBCΓǪ Only thing better than new clothes? New men! Jennifer Love Hewitt is back in The Client List, and her revolving door of sexy XY chromosomes can be endless! Catch the Lifetime series Sunday, March 10 at 10 p.m.

SPOT. If you are in the West Village on Friday and you do double take thinking “was that Justin Timberlake?” No your eyes aren’t deceiving you. A little bird told us that Jessica Biel‘s hubby is in the NYC hood filming a little something for his hosting gig on SNL this Saturday night. Can’t wait to see what those naughty boys come up with to beat the classic “D*$&-in-a-box”!
