Oz: The Great And Powerful Collection from HSN Preview Party

By: Anne M. Raso 

I continued my week around town by attending the HSN Preview for the Oz: The Great And Powerful official collection -- which was something not to be missed. For those of you who are unaware (or living under a rock without a TV), Oz: The Great And Powerful  is a new movie that will be released this Friday based loosely on L. Frank Baum's 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and is the prequel to the legendary old school film The Wizard of Oz.  As The Wizard of Oz is still one of my favorite films from yesteryear to this day, I absolutely had to attend! Held in the HSN offices in midtown, the collection includes over of 50 of HSN's most popular brands and over 400 products doing their "Oz thing."

I fell in love with Urban Decay's Glenda palette (yes, there is such a thing as Good Witch eyeshadows) and an array of over-the-top gems. I am a huge fan of Carole Brodie and her stunning pieces in semi-precious stones, and her pieces for this collection were a little more whimsical than usual.
Gems Galore!
You can also bet that several of HSN's top shoe designers did lots of gem-covered heels and flats but there is (surprisingly) not a pair that resembles Dorothy's ruby slippers! There is a glittery Deborah Lippman polish called Ruby Slippers, however, and a pair of Steve Madden red satin gemstone wedge sandals that are definitely Ruby Slippers inspired!

Check back tomorrow for my next recap - where I preview Vera Bradley's new kids collection and smell Hiyari Paris' new fragrance!
