First look of Meryl as "The Witch"

Entertainment Weekly has posted the first pic of Meryl in character as the Witch in Into the Woods:

My first reaction (aside from her looking like a cross between the French lieutenant's woman and Aunt Josephine) is that this styling makes her seem rather young.  I think it's the hair.   It makes sense because although she's supposed to look haggard as the old witch, just from this one shot we get a sense of a character who looks a certain age but is young.  If she looks this good in the "before" shot, I can't wait to see how she looks when her youth and beauty are restored.
