In or Out: Olivia Wilde in Oscar de la Renta

Posted on October 07, 2011

We almost shouted “WERQ!” on this one, but bit our tongues after the scrolldown.

First, the good: It’s an incredibly striking dress and she can pull it off when a lot of mere mortals would have problems making the attempt. Her hair and makeup are very soft and pretty, which suits her and which was also a good idea because the dress is so focus-pulling. But kittens. Those shoes. Now we realize just hours ago we shouted “WERQ!” at someone else even though we didn’t like her shoes, but this goes beyond mere dislike. Those things are HIDEOUS. Worse, they manage to do something we would have thought impossible: they pull the eye away from the dress. That is absolutely the wrong thing to be doing. Focus-pulling shoes go with simple dresses; you don’t pair them with a focus-pulling dress because then it all becomes way too much.

Are we wrong here? We’re asking.
