First came Titanic. Next, Jurassic Park. And now, The Wizard of Oz will get a new 3-D and IMAX treatment, as reported yesterday by USA Today.

Set to hit theaters this fall, get ready for an up close and personal Aunt Em and a very realistic Toto.

All of this talk of lollipop kids and the great and powerful Oz got us thinking--which quickly turned to googling/youtubing. Okay so you might think we're totally nuts with this one, but a major thought occurred after watching a good 10 clips: Is it just us or do each of our favorite characters from the 1939 classic have a striking resemblance to a handful of our favorite spring '13 runway collections?

Sounds crazy? Well, check out our evidentiary support below. Sure, the Tin Man may not have a heart--but he seems to have a special connection with Celine's Phoebe Philo.
