Olivia Wilde in Rome

Posted on October 15, 2012

With nothing but a string of red carpet looks on the plate for today, we got to the end of our early-morning editorial meeting and said to each other, “We really need to find a gal wearing normal clothes.” It makes for a nice palate-cleanser in the middle of a bunch of gowns.

Olivia? Please step forward.


Olivia Wilde takes a tour of Rome while in town to film her new movie ‘Third Person.’

Proenza Schouler PS1 Satchel Bag

We’re not going to pretend that this is all that note-worthy from a style perspective, just that she looks good dressed down. Love the bag and love the boots. Even in jeans and a long-sleeved T, she still looks like a movie star.

      Having experienced pickpockets in Rome, I am happy to see she has her purse crossed, and hand firmly placed… and… she looks cute.

      And she’s not carrying the loaner bag so it can be seen from orbit.  Kudos for that.  Who knows, maybe she actually BOUGHT that one?

        If there is any luxury bag worth shelling out the big bucks for, it is this style of the PS1. God, how I covet this exact bag. Some day I’ll be able to justify the expense—like, it’ll be the last satchel I ever buy, right? 😉

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          Oh, of course it will, because you are always prudent with your money, are you not?  And buying high quality is always a fine idea.

        • kschwarting

          I have a satchel (OK, two) that is similarly styled that I bought from Fluevog.  Great quality, but a much more reasonable price point.

            Love their bags!!! Frye makes a good one, also.

        I so need that bag…

      • themandy

        In the grand scheme of designer bags, the PS1 is inexpensive. Bet she owns that one.

    • Violina23

      Fashionable over the shoulder bag… want… WANT!

      The only movie I have seen her in was AWFUL, and yet I really like her. And I like a girl who looks quite comfy wandering around in normal clothes.

      • tereliz

        Me, too. It seems like she gets these roles where she’s supposed to be eye-candy, and nothing deeper is asked of her. She had a small part in BUTTER, and despite playing a stripper with an ax to grind (metaphorically), she injected the role with humor and a crass sort of wit. I’d love to see her play a character with more heart.

        • paginatrix

           She was quite smart and funny on “The Daily Show” the other night.

      • Carla_Charlton

        Recently I saw her as herself on a PBS show with Nicholas Kristof from the NYTimes and I was impressed with her thoughtfulness.  She seemed genuinely interested in the plight of the women she was visiting and not in a “I’m-doing-this-for-the-pr” kind of way.  Also, she appeared to be bare-faced and you could see how beautiful she is.

          Yes, she impressed me there. 

    • tereliz

      She looks comfortable, appropriate, casual… I’d never mistake her for an Italian (style-wise), but she looks great here!

    • kimmeister

      She looks great.  The bag looks stylish and functional.  I just hope this movie better than Cowboys & Aliens. . .

      I have eyebrow envy. And handbag envy.

      She looks great. Casual, normal and great. 

    • ccinnc

      Love her jeans – anyone know the brand? Looks like a bird in flight on the back pocket.

      • ccinnc

        Once again, Google is my friend. They’re MiH.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/Y2NRENM73PYXEHSNLE7K2DY5PM Bethany

         I think they’re MiH — they use a dove symbol as their insignia.  The boots look like Acne to me.

    • Call me Bee

      She just looks like a stylish 20-something running errands on her day off.  With a $2000 handbag. 

    • MilaXX

      Love this for the sheer normalcy of it all. She looks like a total non celeb tourist in Rome.

      • l_c_ann

        And like all non-celeb tourists, her strong pocket book strap is over her shoulder and across her body to try to prevent purse snatchings.  Smart woman.

    • Judy_S

      I enjoy this, but I was thinking that sunglasses are a better disguise for her than for most actresses. Her eyes are so distinctive.

      WANT the boots

      • tereliz

        They are cute, aren’t they? And they must be moderately comfy… from the pics you can tell she wears them often. Acne?

    • http://twitter.com/nkk Nikki

      I’ve been looking for a new purse to invest in (the last one I got many seasons ago still gets many compliments, but I think I need to give it a rest…)  But ouch- looking at that price, I just think I might not want to splurge right now…

    • granddelusion

      Why does anyone who’s not going out of town for the weekend need a bag that big?

      • Kate4queen

        I have been known to carry my lap top, my iPad and a notebook in my bag, plus the usual stuff, so sometimes big is better. :) Not sure if she needs to do this, however. LOL

      • MissAmynae

        I’d keep a camera and bottle of water…maybe a book in case I found a nice quiet space.

    • formerlyAnon

      I WANT those boots.

      Too bad I can’t justify moving boots like that from the “want” to the “need” list.

    • guest2visits

      Easy going and cute, I like the glasses and the boots best.

    • JDreesen

      refreshing look – of course, i saw the post title and thought “Rome” was a dress maker, so it was a double-win for me to see a WOTS bit instead.

    • Teri Brinson

      She looks great, casual and comfortable. Add me to the list of people who adore that bag.

    • librarygrrl64

      That bag is fantastic!

    • piecesofconfetti

      BAG ENVY!!!

    • TieDye64

      God, I love that bag so hard. Nice casual look.

    • Candigirl1968

      I appreciate that this looks like what a normal human being would wear when running around.  It’s put together casual and doesn’t scream “my outfit costs more than your car!!!!”
