Olivia Wilde has been seen wearing
Olivia Wilde seen on Jan 10 2014 in West Hollywood, CA. Olivia Wilde was photographed out and about in West Hollywood on January 10, her ever-growing baby bump looking quite stylish in this street-chic look. Starting with a classic black leather motorcycle jacket (get the look with BB Dakota's Nessa Jacket in Black) and a white lace top (like Joie's Elvia Blouse in Porcelain) over a grey tank top, Olivia then wore a pair of relaxed fit black pants (for a similar pair, check out 3.1 Phillip Lim's Smocked Waistband Pant in Black). From there, OW added on a pair of black sunnies and flat black boots (Jeffrey Campbell's Oriley in Black are incredibly similar). What are your thoughts on Olivia's maternity style on this occasion, readers? In other exciting news, Olivia recently announced that she and her beau Jason Sudeikis are having a boy! Although Olivia and Jason have remained vague when asked about their baby's gender in the past, Olivia let it slip on the red carpet of the Golden Globe Awards that they are expecting a little boy. During one interview, Olivia mentioned: ""He was kicking the whole time, going, 'Where are we?!'" Congrats to the happy couple!
Olivia Wilde seen on Oct 29 2013 in Beverly Hills, CA. Olivia Wilde was photographed attending the 2013 International Women’s Media Foundation’s Courage in Journalism Awards that was held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills on October 29, and debuted her tiny baby bump for the first time since announcing that she's pregnant. So cute! For her event ensemble, Olivia chose a Cushnie et Ochs dress and paired it with Jimmy Choo heels, a Stephen Webster cuff, and a Cecelia stingray clutch. If you're interested in scoring a printed frock in a sophisticated, ladylike silhouette like Olivia's, check out one of the similar options right here on CoutureCandy, including Milly's Cutaway Sheath in Grape Purple, Kay Unger New York's Day Occasion Print Dress in Red, or Elizabeth McKay's Kiki Dress in Mascot. From there, simply add on a glam clutch (like Abaco's Sparkle Clutch in Bronze) and you'll be all set. Now, back to Olivia's exciting baby news! According to People, a source said that "They are incredibly happy. They're very excited to welcome a new member into their family." Olivia took to her Twitter account to thank everyone for the well wishes that she's been getting, tweeting: "WOW. You guys are awesome. So kind. Thank you thank you thank you! PS. Babies eat mostly salsa right?" Ha! Congrats, OW!
Olivia Wilde seen on Aug 19 2013 in New York, NY. Olivia Wilde looked absolutely darling as she posed for photographs before taping an appearance on "Good Morning America" to promote her new film Drinking Buddies earlier today, August 19, in New York. For her promotional appearance, Olivia paired a printed Clover Canyon pencil skirt (for an equally bold option, check out AGAIN's Beale in Alphabet Black, or for a more classic, dialed-down option with a similar silhouette, check out Kay Unger New York's Spring Tweed Skirt in Green) with a black crew neck Crippen t-shirt (get the look with Minnie Rose's Layering Crew Neck Pullover in Black, or for a v-neck option, try Nation Ltd's Classic V Neck Tee in Black) and a pair of bright blue Jimmy Choo platform heels. Glossy waves and natural makeup completed OW's outfit. What are your thoughts of her look here, everyone - does it get a thumbs up or down from you? In other Olivia news, the beautiful actress recently revealed that she suffered a "beer burn" when researching her role as an unlikely beer maker in Drinking Buddies! Said Olivia: "We were at the brewery and we were learning about the process of making beer and (co-star) Jake (Johnson) was pouring in the hops into boiling wort (the syrupy liquid substance that makes up beer)... and everyone else was wearing goggles except me and I leaned into his shoulder and it went into my eye. I felt I had to play it cool and I did, even though I was suffering terribly. I admitted it three weeks later that I was in horrible pain. We learned to respect how difficult it is to make a great beer. It really hurts to get boiling beer splashed in your eye!" Ouch! I hope she's ok now!
Olivia Wilde seen on Apr 05 2013 in New York, NY. Olivia Wilde was photographed looking gorgeous as always at the 2013 DVF Awards on April 5, which was held at the United Nations building in NYC. For her red carpet outfit, Olivia chose a sleek DVF suit, that she paired with an A.L.C. black blouse and a vintage House of Lavande necklace. DVF heels and a satin clutch completed her look. If you have a semi-fancy event in the near future and would like to look to Olivia for inspiration, try pairing Voom by Joy Han's Nikki Blazer in Black with Kay Unger New York's Tuxedo Pant in Black to emulate the suiting look, and then wear with Joie's Siegel in Caviar. A chic statement necklace, such as Sara Blaine's Haute Necklace in Mother of Pearl, would add the perfect final touch. I'd love to hear what your thoughts are on Olivia's polished look here - does it get a thumbs up or down from you? In other OW news, the beautiful actress recently opened up about how she met her fiance, funnyman Jason Sudeikis. Olivia cheekily told Chelsea Handler on her show "Chelsea Lately" that they met at the zoo, when "I was trying to feed the bear and I leaned over and fell in, and then he jumped in, naked, and saved me. It turned out he actually was the bear. He's incredibly hairy." Ha! Love that she has a sense of humor - because hey, if she can't bring it out with Chelsea then when can she?
Olivia Wilde seen on Feb 07 2013 in New York, NY. Olivia Wilde was photographed fulfilling her promotional duties at the Revlon Luxurious ColorSilk Buttercream launch event which was held at The Royalton Hotel in NYC on February 7. Looking chic and sexy in a Talbot Runhof dress, Olivia then accessorized with a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood heels along with an Iwona Ludyga bracelet. To emulate Olivia's polished look on this occasion, try picking a LBD that is a bit sultry. Options such as Alexia Admor's Illusion Sleeve Sheath in Black and Kimikal's Lizzy Dress in Black are both great choices. From there, keep your jewelry to a minimum, as Olivia did here. A simple, delicate bracelet (such as either Lafonn's Gold Eternally Classic Bracelet or Meredith Marks' Aimee Bangles in Moonstone) will provided the perfect accent to your stylish 'fit. What's your take on Olivia's ensemble here, everyone? In other Olivia news, I'm sure you've heard that the gorgeous actress is now engaged to funnyman Jason Sudeikis. However, a source is now saying that Olivia had quite the ultimatum for Jason in order to say yes! Says an insider, " Olivia told Jason she’d marry him only if he’d let her rummage through his place and get rid of any pictures, letters, videotapes, scrapbook pictures, mementos… whatever she could find! Jason’s so totally whipped, he agreed to her demand, so Olivia — absolutely determined to wipe the slate clean — didn’t leave a closet or drawer untossed. She destroyed old photos, letters and whatever else she could find, until there wasn’t a trace of girlfriends past." Intense! Do you believe this report, readers?
Olivia Wilde seen on Nov 05 2012 in New York, NY. Olivia Wilde was spotted on the red carpet of the 16th annual ACE Awards earlier this evening, November 5, which was held in NYC. The event, which pays homage to those individuals and groups that have made great strides in raising the awareness of the accessories industry, was honoring accessories designer Vince Camuto, this year's visionary. For her awards show ensemble, Olivia donned a flirty white dress which she accessorized with a black waist belt, matching box clutch, and pair of drop earrings. To get OW's look, start with a great white dress; take your pick between Sue Wong's Seutache Embroidered Lace Dress in Ivory and Shin Choi's Caden Dress in Cream. From there, add on a classic black clutch (try Zambos & Siega's Joanie Clutch in Black and a stunning pair of earrings - Athena Designs' Sapphire Drop Earrings should do the trick! Finish your outfit off with a pair of timeless black pumps, and you should be all set. Do you like Olivia's look on this occasion, readers? In other OW news, it has been reported that the beautiful actress recently decided not to head uptown for electricity (as many celebrities, including Mary-Kate Olsen did) and instead stayed put downtown during superstorm Sandy. Last Thursday, Olivia took to her official Twitter account to say: "Lower Manhattan without power is a lot like a less-naked Burning Man. Everyone is hungry, dirty, and carrying glow sticks."" Thoughts on Olivia's decision, readers?
Olivia Wilde seen on Aug 15 2012 in Los Feliz, CA. Olivia Wilde was snapped leaving lunch at Alcove Cafe in Los Feliz, CA earlier today, August 15, seemed to be in good spirits as she headed to her car. For her sunny summer ensemble, Olivia wore a graphic tee printed with the phrase "We're Watching Coco Channel" (for a similarly quirky tee, check out Wildfox Couture's Milan Hippy Crew Top in White) paired with cute coral skinny jeans (get the look with James Jeans' Twiggy Faux Front Pocket Legging in Coral) and a pair of gold sandals. Accessory wise, OW opted for a classic pair of Ray-Ban New Wayfarer in Black and a brown handbag (try Julie K Handbags' Gabby in Brown) to complete her look. Is this street style something you would rock for a summertime lunch with friends, everyone? In other Olivia news, the beautiful actress recently paid a visit to Haiti, which was documented in the magazine Conde Nast Traveler. Of the trip, Olivia said that she "hopes to inspire others." Olivia had a conversation with Bill Gates about whether she should focus on other causes besides Haiti, and according to the magazine, "he said, 'No, invest your time in Haiti and know your subject well.' And, by taking his advice, Wilde successfully started the Academy for Peace and Justice, the first free secondary school in Haiti, this past spring." Says Olivia: "We started so small, and this is such a grand gesture. I'm really excited about the next generation. Philanthrophy is no longer just for the rich." So cool! Such a great cause.
Olivia Wilde seen on Jun 18 2012 in New York, NY. Olivia Wilde took a moment to pose for photographers before heading into tape an appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman" in NYC on June 18, as the actress was promoting her new film People Like Us. Outfit wise, Olivia paired a black blazer (like Elizabeth & James' Cate Blazer in Black) with a graphic t-shirt printed with a tiger head (unleash your animal instincts with Brokedown's Leopard Heart Tank in White), and then slipped into a pair of black straight leg jeans (try Earnest Sewn's Decca 5 Pocket Straight in Jet). From there, a pair of black platforms and a delicate gold bracelet (like Christie Martin Jewelry's Heart Bracelet in Gold) on her left wrist added the finishing touches to her look. What are your thoughts on Olivia's sartorial choices here, everyone? While on "Letterman," Olivia dished about her recent (dangerous!) adventures with boyfriend Jason Sudeikis in Jamaica. Says Olivia: "We fancy ourselves athletic people, so we were in Jamaica and we thought, 'We don't just sit on the beach all the time. We'll go kayaking.' I'd seen kayaking in movies and stuff, so we thought we could do that. We took out a kayak each. It was a choppy, windy, stormy day, but I thought we could do it anyway. It got a little too treacherous and I turned around and Jason was gone. Gone! I saw an upside down kayak... and suddenly I realized that I was about to go over. This went on for quite a while. A few minutes later, Jason resurfaced and we were rescued by a team of fisherman. They had been watching us with binoculars. I'm sure they were taking bets on who would go down first." Scary!
Olivia Wilde seen on Aug 18 2011 in Los Feliz, CA. Photographed heading to lunch at Little Doms in Los Feliz, CA on August 18, Olivia Wilde seemed to be a bit camera shy as she tried to dodge the paparazzi. Wearing a striped maxi dress (Tart's Grace Maxi in Oval Link has a similar silhouette with an interesting pattern, while Charlotte Tarantola's Metro in Black is great if you're a fan of stripes) under a denim motorcycle jacket (check out Vince's Scuba Ribbed Sleeve Jacket in Black for a leather version), Olivia then toted a brown fringed tote (like Julie K Handbags' Faith Fringe Handbag in Cognac) and wore a classic pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Brown boots completed OW's casual 'fit. Are you a fan? In Olivia career news, the Cowboys & Aliens star is set to appear in the upcoming sci-fi thriller In Time opposite Justin Timberlake - and she plays his mother! Say what? The film envisions a futuristic society in which humans are genetically engineered to stop aging at 25 and can theoretically live forever. Wild!! Says Justin: "We laughed about it when we first saw each other. First of all, Olivia is three years younger than me! We’d read the script and I would say, 'Here’s something my mom might do,' or 'Here’s the way my mom might say it.' I think she really looked to me to give her those little things because she had the trickier job in our scenes. But she’s obviously a great actor. When you meet both of [our characters], it’s visually jolting, but within seconds you’re like, 'Oh, wow, that is his mother." This movie sounds really intriguing... can't wait to see it!
Olivia Wilde seen on Jul 04 2011 in Montreal, Quebec. Olivia Wilde was seen arriving at Pierre Elliott Trudeau International airport in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on July 4, and seemed to do her best to avoid the ever-present paparazzi who were consistently snapping away. For her airport ensemble, Olivia wore a casual grey t-shirt (like Fluxus' Roman Tee in Heather Grey) under a black leather jacket (try Emu's Coomba Jacket in Black), along with a pair of her favorite Levi's Demi Curve jeans. From there, OW wore an oversized pair of black shades and brown leather boots - for a suede pair with a trendy sherpa accent, check out L.A.M.B.'s Pier Suede Bootie with Lamb Cuff in Brown. Are you diggin' Olivia's traveling 'fit, everyone? While it seems like Olivia's star has really started to shine lately, she is definitely getting used to being linked with Hollywood's heavy hitters such as Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper, and Justin Timberlake. In recent Olivia relationship gossip, the gorgeous actress denies hooking up with Chris Pine, saying: "Strange to hear I was on a date at a restaurant I've never been to. But I trust my doppelganger had a blast. Hope she doesn't rob any banks." Funny!
Olivia Wilde seen on Jan 25 2011 in Paris, France. Olivia Wilde steps out in an uncharacteristically bold look at the Gucci In-Store Cocktail Party celebrating Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week on January 25 in Paris, France. Olivia attended the bash with Parisian lovers Diane Kruger and Jessica Alba, who was spotted shopping at the Gucci boutique earlier in the day. Still playing with her new full fringed 'do, O channeled a 70's vibe with harem pencil leg pants (take it all the way with Walter's Sequin Knit Pant in Black) and a plunging emerald long sleeve top (try tucking in Hard Tail's Jersey Long Sleeve Twist Tee in Ever) topped with a gold statement necklace (check out Amrita Singh's playful Sonesta Necklace in Multi). Olivia accented the look with strappy black heels (like Coye Nokes' Joan Bootie in Black Embossed Python) and a jewel toned satin clutch (similar to Inge Christopher's Theda Oversized Clutch in Blue), posing confidently with Gucci's creative director, Frida Giannini. I have a feeling the majority of you are hating this at first glance, but I actually like that she took such a daring risk here. At the end of the day, it is fashion week and what better time to go all out, right? How would you caption this look?
Olivia Wilde seen on Jan 14 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Olivia Wilde debuts her new bangs with a dash of disheveled sexiness at W Magazine's Celebration of the Best Performances Issue and the Golden Globes at Chateau Marmont on January 14 in Los Angeles. The Tron: Legacy starlet showed off her new look with barely there makeup, something she's done before and can definitely pull off with her perfect unblemished skin. So unfair! O posed for the photogs in a glamorous gold ALC gown with a nude bandage bodice (try Sue Wong's Ribbon Mermaid Maxi in Champagne or go for a shorter gold frock like Sue Wong's Antique Embroidered Bubble Dress in Gold) paired with a textured metallic Ferragamo clutch (similar to Inge Christopher's Multi Metallic Boa Minaudiere). Olivia added a gold ring and delicate gold bracelet to complete the look (check out Anna Beck's versatile Java Studded Square Ring in Gold with Calico Juno Designs' whimsical Hammered Curls Bracelet in Gold). What do you think of Olivia's downplayed dramatic look, are you a fan? I wish the top of the dress was slightly more cleavage friendly, but otherwise I think she's got a very tasteful look here. Thoughts? I definitely have to say Olivia's dramatic ball gown was by far one of my favorites at the Golden Globes this year, and I love it even more because I definitely wasn't expect that kind of drama from Olivia. Her usual red carpet choices are much more safe, so to see her shine in something that isn't black definitely perked up the red carpet fashion for me! What celebrity looks were your favorite this year?
Olivia Wilde seen on Dec 11 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Olivia Wilde dazzles on the blue carpet of the premiere of Tron: Legacy at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles on December 11. The much anticipated sci-fi fantasy flick finally came out in theatres on Friday and debuted at #1 over the weekend, pulling in over $43 million. Not bad, O! Standing in front of the neon lit press wall, the futuristic blue lighting is a great complement to Olivia's shimmering Pucci gown (glam up this holiday season in Chaudry's Sequin Dress in Gold or Sue Wong's All Over Beaded Mini in Rust/Black). Olivia complemented her dramatic dress with a gold clutch (like Whiting & Davis' Shirred Frame Clutch in Gold) and gold disc earrings (check out Anna Beck's Gold Plated Dish Earring in Gold). I'm not sure if it's the lighting, but it looks like she's darkened her hair slightly, and I love that she added some curls instead of just wearing it straight like she usually does. The only comment I have to make is that her makeup looks a little heavy, especially the blush – but then again, could just be the lighting. What are your thoughts on O's premiere style, does this work for her figure? I thought Olivia looked a little slimmer at her last public appearance, and it turns out she had a rigorous training schedule while filming Tron. She chatted with Women's Health magazine about her regimen, appearing on the cover of the January 2011 issue: “I worked with a personal trainer, so I did about an hour of cardio five or six days a week, weight training three times a week, mixed martial arts/fighting three times a week, and that’s a lot more than my normal [routine]!” A lot more than mine too! However, Olivia continued she may not be keeping up the hard work: “Striving for physical perfection takes a lot of energy. For me it’s important to come home from work, cook a meal with my husband, and spend the afternoon reading a book, instead of always running around.” I have to say I agree with her! How important is staying physically fit for you readers?
Olivia Wilde seen on Dec 05 2010 in London, UK. Looking gorgeous as ever, Olivia Wilde arrives at the London premiere of Tron: Legacy at Empire Leicester Square on December 5. For the blue carpet Olivia chose a gorgeous embellished one shoulder Armani dress (try Carter's Beaded Shoulder Kitten Dress in Black or Meghan Los Angeles' Akubi Dress in Blue to add an asymmetrical touch to your holiday wardrobe) with sharp black pumps (add a touch of bling with Rock & Republic's Alayna Chain Pump in Pewter) and a pair of dazzling teardrop earrings (like Kuo Ting's Frosted Teardrop Earrings in Sterling Silver). What do you think of Olivia's chic ensemble, does it flatter her curvy figure? Olivia keeps covered up on the red carpet in sheer stockings often, but she recently bared it all – well almost, anyway – for Flaunt Magazine, posing in several provocative photos including one standing nude in a kitchen with a strategically placed cactus covering her unmentionables. Cheeky! In her interview for the mag, the writer bluntly asked her over dinner why, as a vegetarian, she's not thinner, to which she replied: "Umm, because I'm married to an Italian and every time I ask him to cook dinner, you can be a hundred-percent sure it's going to be pasta. Anyway, there are a lot of fat vegetarians out there." I'm loving her response to such a misguided question! Check out the article above for more outrageous tidbits about O, and don't forget to see her new flick out in theatres December 17.
Olivia Wilde seen on Nov 09 2010 in New York, NY. Going glam in a classic LBD, Olivia Wilde struts the red carpet at the premiere of The Next Three Days in New York City on November 9. Olivia has a supporting role in the film about a husband (Russell Crowe) who concocts a plan to break his wife (Elizabeth Banks) out of jail after she's accused of murder – O plays a pivotal role in the escape as the mother of one of the couple's son's friends. Sounds like quite the thriller! Olivia arrived at the premiere in a plunging v-neck Celine dress (try Karen Zambos' Beckham Mini in Black or Soul Revival's Joey Pyramid Dress in Black for your next holiday event) with sheer black stockings and a black and tan Jimmy Choo clutch (add a similar touch with Whiting & Davis' Florentine Clutch in Multi). Olivia chose classic Louboutin pumps (tie in the metal accent on the clutch with Rock & Republic's Alayna Chain Pump in Pewter) and completed the look with subtly sparkling earrings (try Kuo Ting's Labradorite Marquis Earrings in Gold). What do you think of O's red carpet style, does it suit her? With all her recent roles in The Next Three Days, Tron and Cowboys and Aliens, Olivia definitely has some fans wondering if she'll ever make it back to the role that made her famous as the sexy doctor "Thirteen" on House. Chatting with Entertainment Weekly, O confirmed this week that she is definitely coming back to the show after taking a season off and even gave fans a little teaser about what's to come for her character: “I am coming back to House. This season, as a matter of fact. It is a done deal… They have it all worked out and the viewers will find out where she went and why she left. I think it is an interesting progression for her. Thirteen has been through a lot so it has to be escalated. She has Huntington’s. She had a brain tumor and went blind. She had a bad breakup. She’s sexually ambiguous. She had problems with drugs. I thought, `What else can (creator) David Shore possibly come up with?’ They had to take it to a whole new level." I don't know about you, but I'm definitely intrigued about what's going on with House these days – will any of you be tuning in this season?
Olivia Wilde seen on Aug 15 2010 in Santa Monica, CA. Enjoying a quiet afternoon at the beach, Olivia Wilde and husband Tao Ruspoli went on a leisurely bike ride on Santa Monica, CA on August 15. While some might go for a bikini and shorts, O stayed warm in the unseasonably chilly weather in a loose button down (keep it cool in Wit.'s Resort Sailor Tunic in Blue/White) and faded bootcut jeans (you can't go wrong with a classic fit like 7 For All Mankind's Bootcut Jean in New York Dark, but if you're an avid biker keep your cuffs clear of the chains with Paige Premium Denim's Hidden Hills Straight Leg in Omega), keeping her toes safe in trusty Chuck Taylors. Olivia polished off her uber casual look with a windblown ponytail and tinted aviator, smiling at the paps she's about to bike over. O looks like she's a pro on her beach cruiser, unlike another notorious LA resident who had some two wheeler troubles last month. LA isn't known for having great bike routes, and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa learned that the hard way after he was knocked off his ride by a taxi while biking in Venice Beach last month. Luckily he's okay, but after returning to work this week he's already announced a plan to build over 200 miles of bike lanes in the next 5 years. That should give Olivia – and other bike savvy celebs like Rachel McAdams and Jessica Alba – something to smile about!
Olivia Wilde seen on Mar 05 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Showcasing her indie spirit, Olivia Wilde dazzles at the 25th Film Independent Spirit Awards on March 5 in Los Angeles. We haven't seen O on the red carpet much lately, and I have to say it was worth the wait! For the Spirit Awards Olivia selected a sweeping Ralph Lauren Fall 2009 maxi that was worn casually on the runway with a brown leather belt which I'm oh-so-happy she decided to forgo. The look is so much more elegant, and the bohemian print is perfect for the event (check out CoutureCandy's selection of printed maxis like Love True Love's Tanzania Gold in Multi, Karen Zambos' Maxi Dress in Ivory or the Swanky Long Dress in Brick). Olivia carried a petite gold clutch (similar to Whiting & Davis' Shirred Frame Clutch in Gold) and accessorized with a dainty gold necklace (I'm loving Kuo Ting's Sapphire and Garnets Necklace in Gold). Natural waves and illuminating make-up complete O's gold infused ensemble. What do you readers think? Looks like there's a new golden girl in town!
Olivia Wilde seen on Jan 28 2010 in Santa Monica, CA. Olivia Wilde lights up the Artists for Peace and Justice event with her vibrant red frock in Santa Monica on January 28. I love the bold color choice and ultra femme bow detail at the back (for red maxi options on CoutureCandy try Sky's Werner Maxi Dress in Red or Raw 7's Wings Long Cotton Dress in Red). O pulled back her hair in a simple ponytail, accented by Kara Ackerman Indian Fan earrings (check out Allison Daniel Designs' Double Vintage Floral Vine Earring in Jet Stone) and a gleaming silver bracelet (try Michele Michel's classic Bracelet in Silver). She sometimes falls flat in the hair and make-up department, but I think Olivia is knocking it out of the park in this 'fit. I love the casual elegance she projects when she walks into a room, or red carpet – and the radiant ruby hue doesn't hurt either! What do you think of O's glamorous style? After the event, Olivia shared her excitement with fans (where else?) on Twitter, telling all: “APJ event a HUGE success! Thank you to all who came and to all who have donated! It was an incredible evening.” 'Tis the season to be charitable! Are any of you stepping out in style for benefits like this?
Olivia Wilde seen on Jan 14 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA. Olivia Wilde has had so many amazing style moments this week I couldn't choose between them! The House hottie arrived at the DIC/InStyle Diamond Fashion Show Preview in Beverly Hills on January 14, looking very sophisticated in a two toned Alberta Ferretti Spring 2010 frock. This is a refreshing change to the foxy mini she wore to the FOX Winter All Star Party just a few nights earlier, and it's great to see a young star exploring styling options without seeming obvious. At first glance it appears she's wear a taupe soutache skirt with a crinkly white blouse (a look you can create with Tracy Reese's Pegged Skirt in Vanilla and Camel and a casual white top like Graham and Spencer's Gauze Top in White), but the two were shown as one piece on the runway. Loving the contrasting textures, although I have to admit the style dwarfs her a little – not exactly the most flattering thing shapes, but the buttery color combination is great. O completed her look with Jimmy Choo Nova boa print peep-toes (love Samanta's Viv Snake Heel in Navy) and a matching python clutch (try Inge Christopher's sassy Marie Metallic Boa Clutch in Gold with a femme rosette detail on the flap). What do you think of Olivia's fashion show 'fit – could she have made it a little more exciting or do you like the mature vibe? As previously mentioned, O is passionately involved in helping to raise funds and awareness in the wake of the recent tragedy in Haiti, and has been continuing to Tweet updates to fans about the situation to encourage donations. Even for a celebrity like Olivia, the severity of the situation is widespread: “[W]ent to sleep worried sick about our friends we have not heard from. [P]lease please keep encouraging your friends to donate for Haiti relief.” I hope Olivia's friends – and all of you readers – are safe and sound!
Olivia Wilde seen on Jan 11 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. The perpetually perfect Olivia Wilde brightens up at the FOX Winter TCA All Star party in LA on January 11 with her electric style. For this low key event, O picked a bold blue Alexander McQueen Spring 2010 mini with stunning sculptured details on the shoulder and hip (for a similar mod look, check out Young Fabulous & Broke's Arianna Dress in Blue or try the structured style of Blaque Label's Long Sleeve Tunic Dress in Brown) paired with foxy Jimmy Choo stilettos (try the similar lace up style of Andrea & Joen's Daze in Black). Olivia carried a black mini clutch (love the style of Elaine Turner's Bianca Clutch in Black) and accessorized with two rings and a python cuff (CC Skye's Triple Cobra Stretch Bangles in Black are a great complement to any 'fit). O usually plays it incredibly casual with her hair, so I'm loving her super straight, sleek tresses here. Great make-up too! What do you think of her look? Like many celebs, Olivia is taking action in the wake of the recent devastation in Haiti. After recently visiting the country to help establish funding for a school, she sent out the touching message: "Haiti is an incredible place full of wonderful people who are struggling to survive. It blew my mind. I will post pics. We are lucky kids." Now just a few weeks later, O is lending a hand to the Red Cross to encourage people to make donations. She announced she will send a personalized "Thank You" message to anyone who donates over $200 via Twitter: "It's worse every minute guys, so we are raising the stakes. Now, those who give $200 or more will get a personal thank you video. Just to clarify, if you donated $100 before 1am PST you will get a video message. After 1am? $200. This is how we will help make an impact!" Amazing to see a celeb taking this cause so seriously – I hope you are all moved to donate!
Olivia Wilde seen on Dec 23 2009 in Venice, CA. Olivia Wilde keeps it casual while picking up some last minute holiday gifts with her hubby Tao Ruspoli on December 23 in Venice, CA. From the waist up, she looks cute and wintery, waist down… um… is that a camel toe? I think this is a great example of why leggings work best with tunic length tops. Oli put her 'fit together with a cute cropped denim jacket (like True Religion's Jimmy Jacket in Dark Savannah) over a loose tee (Lotta Stensson's Silk Crepe Racer Tank in White is a great basic in a luxurious fabric) and pink fringed scarf (A Graves' Colt 45 Scarf in Pink is one of my favorites). From there, Olivia went straight to comfort-ville with plain black leggings (avoid any cliché wardrobe malfunctions with a more structured legging like Joe's Jeans' Chelsea Ankle in Morgan) and classic tall Uggs (add some style with Gwyneth Shoe's Elly Boot in Tobacco). On the bright side, at least her bum looks good, but I'm not feeling the leggings sans coverage at all. What are your thoughts on this fashion dilemma, readers?
Olivia Wilde seen on Nov 01 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Looks like Cameron Diaz isn't the only star who loves fitted frocks by RM by Roland Mouret. Olivia Wilde attended the LA premiere of Precious at Grauman's Chinese Theatre on November 1. Both O and Cam are working the sophisticated simplicity of these dresses, and I love that Olivia lightened up in a cream shade with nude accessories. For similar fitted frocks on CoutureCandy, try Suzabelle's Veronica Day Dress in Heather Grey, Sue Wong's All Over Soutache Lace Dress in Beige or Gold Hawk's Floral Eyelet Dress in White. O carried a nude clutch (like Posse New York's Natalie Clutch in Pearl Tan and kept her jewelry minimal with her wedding ring and a skinny gold bracelet (try Danielle Stevens' Monogram Bracelet in Gold. Once again Olivia is showing off her clear complexion with barely there makeup, gorgeous. What do you think of this "precious" 'fit? O has attended a few Hollywood social events this week, hanging out with Hayden Panettiere at the Jimmy Choo for H&M party and chatting with the press about her character on House: “It’s kind of great to be able to … harness my power as a sexual being I guess and to be able to be seen as a sexy person and not have to compromise who I am and what I stand for. And being able to be considered sexy even though I wear a floor length lab coat in every episode, showing very little skin and spewing out medical terms all day.” She has a point - Olivia is one of the few who can make scrubs look sexy!
Olivia Wilde seen on Oct 25 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Looking radiant on the green carpet, Olivia Wilde attended the 20th Anniversary of the Environmental Media Awards at Paramount Studios in LA on October 25. Although I'm not sure how "green" stretch lace is, Olivia looks stunning in Stella McCartney lace cut-out dress (get the lacy look with Tracy Reese's Lace Shell Top in Black or Single Dress' Lace Bust Pencil Dress in Black), but Stella is known for using eco-chic fabrics so who knows about this one! OW accessorized with a shiny clutch (I'd pair Moyna Handbag's Snap Closure Beaded Clutch in Metal Pewter) and grey and black square toe pumps. I like that Olivia didn't go for a boring black shoe, but the grey throws me off a little (I would have picked Elaine Turner's Valerie Patent Peep Toe in Black). What do you think of the look? I'm happy she wore her hair up to show off the back of the dress, but once again it reveals an exposed zipper, like Olivia's Marchesa gown she wore to the Emmy's in September. I love both dresses, but there were definitely some critics of the ice-skating reminiscent closure. I personally think the zipper's gonna show either way, so you might as well make it exposed – what do you readers think? While O talked about the event about how she's making a difference helping to conserve paper and energy on her Hollywood set, Maxim editor-in-chief Joe Levy weighed in on what makes Olivia the perfect woman for the title of "Hottest Woman Alive": “Olivia Wilde has been the sexiest woman on television since she heated up ‘The OC’ five years ago. She’s smart, she’s beautiful, and she has dual citizenship in the U.S. and Ireland — what more can a man ask for?” Dual citizenship… because that's really what turns a guy on these days!
Olivia Wilde seen on Sep 29 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Lighting up the red carpet at the premiere of Whip It last week, Olivia Wilde pulls off an adorably relaxed look in Los Angeles on September 29. I love that she went so casual for this event – not that anyone was dressed uber fancy, but both Ellen Page and director Drew Barrymore showed up in stunning LBD's. O chose to mix things up with a fiery red frock (try Graham & Spencer's Cami Dress in Red or Ella Moss's Marlo Halter Dress in Bonfire) topped with a casual denim jacket and super strappy black heels. I love the shoe choice but do you think it works with the denim? Olivia completed the look with a gold bracelet and intricate beaded clutch with a plum satin back (try similar evening bags like Moyna Handbag's Snap Closure Beaded Clutch in Red/Gold, or go for a bold contrast with the Deco Beaded Clutch in Blue). What do you think of her look overall, including the natural hair and makeup? Many of you might be surprised to hear that not only is Olivia married, but she and her husband, director Tao Ruspoli, tied the knot all the way back in 2003. She recently talked about how tough it was for her to juggle married life while playing Marissa's sexy lesbian love interest on The O.C.: “There were times when people thought it would really hurt me. People said I shouldn’t be married, or (I should) lie about being married.” How mean to think people would be turned off by that! Obviously it hasn't hurt her, as that role led to her big break on "House," where by coincidence she also plays a sexy lesbian… doctor. Olivia is also starring in her husband's indie flick, Fix, which will be released next month. The movie is inspired by Olivia's brother-in-law and his dilemma to go to rehab or face years of jail time. O told FOX News: "The theme of the movie is everyone has a fix, whether that's drugs or whether that's an obsession you have with trying to change the world or change other people." Can't wait to see O's indie debut!
Olivia Wilde seen on Sep 24 2009 in Beverly Hills, CA. Bravely attending Variety's 1st Annual Power of Women Luncheon with hardly a dab of make-up, Olivia Wilde arrives at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA on Sept 24. When I first saw these pics, I thought she looked washed out, then I realized I don't know a single person with skin clear enough to go this bare in public. Kudos to her for putting on a brave face! Olivia opted for a printed Kate Moss for Topshop dress with petal cut-outs on the neckline (check out Pink Polka Dot's fun floral Gold Retro Mini Dress in Gold or LaROK's Rain Mini in Purple), keeping her accessories as simple as her hair and make-up with nude pumps and an ivory buckled clutch (try Antoinette Lee's Vita Clutch in Stone). When I first saw the dress I wasn't that crazy about it – polka dots are not my thing – but up close you can see they are small floral dots, and I like the graduated detail at the top. What do you think of O's lunch time attire? At the swanky luncheon celebrating Hollywood's most philanthropical ladies, Olivia spoke to the press (again, showing off that flawless skin!) about who she finds most inspirational: "When [Angelina Jolie] goes on CNN and talks about refugees in Pakistan and the Swat Valley that's the first time millions of people have even heard about the Swat Valley, so she definitely uses her celebrity responsibly. I definitely look up to her." Olivia's already confessed her "girl crush" on Angie to Women's Health magazine, dishing in her recent interview about meeting the iconic beauty at last year's Golden Globes: "I was sitting at her knees and talking about my parents and how dangerous being a journalist in a foreign country can be. Later, I was like, ‘Brad who?’ I didn’t even realize he was leaning over her shoulder the whole time. Everyone around her just disappeared." Sounds like someone has a very serious crush!
Olivia Wilde seen on Sep 20 2009 in Hollywood, CA. Compared to past years, I didn't find myself with much to say about the red carpet gowns at the 2009 Emmy Awards on Sept 20 – until I saw Olivia Wilde in this gorgeous lace Marchesa gown. It seemed that this year lots of unnecessary glitz and embellishments battled pastel hues contrasting rich red, plum and noir shades on the red carpet, but somehow Olivia nailed it with this delicately feminine gown. I adore the illusion panel on the front and the way the lace appliqués fall on the train – even the pale pistachio shade flatters her complexion in an almost flawless way (to try out the lacy style for yourself browse Sue Wong's gorgeous gowns like the Long Lace Beaded Ball Gown in Ivory, Victorian Layered Gown in Ivory, or the Flowered Gown in Tan). It's old Hollywood glamour, yet modern at the same time. With the help of her stylist she gave the gown the perfect finishing touch with a dazzling box clutch (try Moyna Handbag's Antique Hand Beaded Clutch in Silver), diamond teardrop earrings (go playful with Kuo Ting's Frosted Teardrop Earrings in Sterling Silver) and a slender silver bangle (opt for Christie Martin's custom Love Bangle in Sterling Silver). With the exception of the nude zipper going up the center back, Olivia takes the night for me. Amongst the other fashion critics, Red Carpet Fashion Awards gave January Jones the Best Dressed accolades, while People picked Drew Barrymore in Monique Lhullier and a very pregnant Heidi Klum in Marchesa to head their list of over 20 best dressed guests. From the picks above, who makes the top of your list?
Olivia Wilde seen on Sep 03 2009 in Madrid, Spain. Olivia Wilde continues to promote her Escada fragrance in Madrid, Spain, making an appearance on Spanish talk show El Hormiguero on Sept 3. On the show she wore a cute peacock embellished tee (try Signorelli's Feather Head Dress V Neck Tee in White or Lauren Moshi's Giraffe V Tee in White) with faded cuffed jeans (try Joe's Jeans Ex Lover Crop in Phoebe) with a black blazer with skinny sleeves (try Signorelli's Logo Blazer in Black) while goofing around sniffing her perfume on the host's neck and showing off her stethoscope skills. What do you think of O's 'fit? I absolutely love the studded heels, and that she kept her jewelry very simple to let them stand out (try a simple personalized ring like Christie Martin's Sterling Silver Band Ring in Sterling Silver). Besides her new Escada career, Olivia is still starring as Thirteen on House. Her producer David Shore recently told Fox News, “We all really enjoyed the fact she was on the cover Maxim, but we’re used to Olivia’s hotness,” he said, agreeing with co-star Omar Epps about her potty mouth, "But she does curse a lot. She grew up in a barn I think.” Ouch!

Olivia Wilde seen on Sep 02 2009 in Madrid, Spain. Looking seductive as ever in Madrid, Spain, Olivia Wilde poses at the launch of her new "Desire Me" fragrance for Escada at the ME Hotel on September 2. House's hottest doctor, who also topped Maxim's Hot 100 list this year, is helping to heat up sales for Escada's new fragrance, quoted in their press release: "I am honored to have been invited to become an ambassador for Escada and the face of their new fragrance. For me, Escada represents style, refinement and sensuality. I like to think of myself as being an Escada woman, and I think that the majority of women aspire to these admirable qualities that this perfumes so perfectly represents." Olivia was certainly the epitome of style, refinement and sensuality in her pewter silk draped Escada dress with strappy black Jimmy Choo's (opt for similar shiny options like Walter's Plum Satin Crepe Dress in Purple, Ingwa Melero's Prussian Dasha Mini in Blue Satin or the Carmelia Mini in Opal from the same line). Wearing her hair down in glossy, sexy waves, Olivia polished her 'fit with a gold cut-out cuff (very similar to CC Skye's Bardot Cuff in Gold). What do you think of her desirable look – hit or miss? The launch of Olivia's new fragrance is moving forward despite Escada filing for bankruptcy earlier this month. The German owned company employs over 2,200 people and has shops in over 60 countries, so the pressure is on Olivia to help them turn things around. Try a free "Desire Me" sample from the Escada website and check out Olivia's sexy commercial for the fragrance – do you think it's enough to boost sales?
