Glinda from Wicked

Glinda (formerly Galinda) is one of the main characters in the musical Wicked, which tells the backstory of Elphaba, better known as the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz.  Glinda begins her journey at Shiz University, where she is accidentally assigned as Elphaba’s roommate.  Despite the rocky start to their relationship, the two eventually become friends, though not every fairy tale in this case gets a happy ending.  While there are certainly more well-known costumes for Glinda in other media, the costume she wears when she arrives at Shiz is a classic white outfit with nods to vintage styles including oxford pumps and a white beret.

Maleficent

Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) is the self-proclaimed mistress of all evil. After being snubbed from the royal christening of Princess Aurora, she curses her to prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fall into a deep sleep. Talk about an overreaction. To replicate the makeup, check out this Maleficent makeup video tutorial.

Elphaba from Wicked

When Elphaba starts college, she’s ignored in favor of her popular roommate Galinda. When they’re ready to fly, Galinda gets a bubble while Elphaba gets a dirty broomstick. How’s that fair?
