Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo are kicking off what's bound to be a thrilling press tour for the upcoming "Wicked" film(s) at the 2024 Oscars with some very Glinda and Elphaba looks.

For her first red carpet in over three years and her very first Oscars appearance, the "Eternal Sunshine" songstress emulated her "Wicked" character in a custom pastel pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown. Perhaps referencing the shape of the bubble Glinda comes and goes by, the style features billowing pannier-style puffs at the hips.

Grande kept her blonde hair back in an intricately curled updo, giving space for her Tiffany & Co. jewels to steal the spotlight, with minimal eye makeup and a glossy pink lip.

Erivo, meanwhile, embracing her inner Elphaba in the most fashionable way possible: in a dark green gown, custom-made for her by Louis Vuitton.

"We wanted a little nod to it, which is why we have a little green," she told Laverne Cox on the red carpet. "But I'm all about texture, and, wonderfully, Nicolas [Ghesquière] and Louis Vuitton, they work very well with me and they listen to my crazy ideas. We knew we wanted a nod to it, but we also wanted to have this feeling, this witchy texture — so, it's leather, but baby soft."

The leather designer features voluminous cap-shaped sleeves that cascade down Erivo's back, creating a cape-like silhouette — likely referencing her witchy character's signature costume.

The green didn't end with the dress: Erivo wore a Roberto Coin bracelet with countless emeralds around it to match her long black, white, red and Oz green nails. She also donned teardrop earrings with green stripes, alongside her stacked simple stud and hoop earrings, and finished with a smokey green eye and a nude lip.
