    I wonder why they decided on “transparent, with boobs” as the theme for her? It’s pretty but not very interesting.

  • Rachael

    That 1st dress looks like they ran out of wardrobe, just grabbed the nearest bed sheet and draped it around her!

  • geans

    She’s got a giant head on the cover, right? Is it just me?

    • Hetha Innis

      I think the unusually long neck is what gives that illusion.

    • gorghast

      She has a giant head at any time. Seriously, she jokes about it Twitter.

      • geans

        Oh! I had no idea. :)

    • barbarienne

      There is a MAJOR photoshop disaster going on around her torso.

      I suppose in theory it could be some strange trick of the shadows and light, but seriously that is one giant WTF happening here.

      • BP180

        Seriously, I was trying to figure out why her boobs were so high, but I think it’s that her head is so gigantic that it’s skewing my perception of where things on her body should be. How can an editor look at this and send it to print on the COVER no less.

      Oh, thank goodness. I thought my subconscious was being bitchy because she’s SO beautiful. The placement of the hair elongates her neck and the weird shape of the dress make it look like her boobs are super low. She looks like a bobble head giraffe!

  • kaycem

    living for the shadow-boob.

  • Judy_S

    My thought: if she can’t make those dresses look fabulous, who can?

    • http://www.facebook.com/mahoho Mary Alexander

      Florence Welch?

  • Sobaika

    She’s capable of being much more striking than this editorial allows her to be.

    • conniemd

      Saw her in a layout for Town and Country ?? and she looked really striking and fab. I’ve loved her since “House” since she has such a unique beauty.

    Olivia Wilde in the Stevie Nicks collection for K-Mart?

    • poggi

      Hah! I thought Stevie Nicks too, but via Frederick’s of Hollywood rather than K-Mart.

    • oldbobbydraper

      i scrolled down to comment about her doing her best stevie impression too! haha

  • Apocalipstick Now Redux

    Can I declare a bare sternum totally unsexy?

    • http://twitter.com/janedonuts Jane Donuts

      Yeah, in the shots where you can see the rest of her body, it’s OK, I guess. But on the cover it’s just weird and not terribly attractive.

  • Christine Marie

    Someone in the photo department clearly has a personal vendetta against Miss Olivia.

  • ToothCake

    sad hair. :(

  • MilaXX

    blech, I don’t like any of these pictures or dresses on her.

  • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

    boobs. wind. yawn.

  • Imasewsure

    Hate the cover… other photos are just ok. And that’s a model from ANTM, right?

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    I’m just wondering if the inspiration for this shoot was the Wicked Witch of the West

  • http://twitter.com/DarthJaeda Jaeda Laurez

    I love the dresses, and I think they especially suit her, but the hair is terrible and the poses are uninspired. She’s like Kiera Knightly’s cuter, American cousin (with boobs).

  • gorghast

    She’s not a great actress, but she has a great personality. I think she’d be more suited for a news/comedy program. Her eyes are incredible.

  • http://twitter.com/NMMagpie NMMagpie

    All about the jawline.

  • jetpackdino

    She’s serving up Carol Alt… Not a bad thing. I love the violet dress. She looks good but they should have tried harder with the hair and makeup.

    • MissAmynae

      Oooh, excellent comparison!

  • http://www.facebook.com/shiketa.gresham Shiketa Gresham

    How is this woman consistently on major magazine covers and Kerry Washingon is not? Oh wait…

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      No kidding. This is getting really ridiculous.

    • charlotte

      I think you mean “Oh white”….

  • Indigo54

    That wide, square jaw freaks me out.

  • http://twitter.com/lisledanielle Danielle Lisle

    Her hair has a sad.

  • Janet B

    The light blue is pretty on her.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    At least they prevented her from wearing raccoon eyeliner this time.

  • anotherkate

    Can we talk about the headline? “Setting the record straight on her sex life”? “Olivia Wilde: what is the deal with her sex life?” said no one ever.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1208138556 Sara Munoz Munoz

      Yeah, cause wondering about her sex life includes thinking about Jason Sudeikis and I CAN’T. He makes me barf.

    • http://twitter.com/leasetegn Lea Setegn

      There was some discussion back when she was on House about whether she was bisexual or not. I’m assuming that’s what the headline refers to. I don’t think she ever confirmed or denied an orientation.

      • anotherkate

        I thought her CHARACTER was bi…? Is this sort of like when the rumor mill decided that Jake Gyllenhaal was gay right around the time Brokeback Mountain came out? I can’t decide people are just incapable of differentiating between an actor and a character, or if the celebrities’ PR reps are cynical bastards who believe that a good gay rumor is great publicity…either way it’s so tiresome to read about, especially with a celeb like Olivia who I think is actually kind of interesting and funny.

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      I have no interest in her sex life, but it annoys me to no end that she is a successful actress with a career that seems to be picking up even more momentum right now. So let’s reduce her to her engagement and her sex life– not on her professional accomplishments. Way to piss me off, MC, you second rate fashion rag, you.

      • golden_years

        Her career has momentum? Her latest movie was yet another box office flop, just like every movie she’s been in. And if you read the article the marie claire article you’ll know that all she did was talk about her engagement and her romantic life. No one’s forcing her to talk about it.

        • Vlasta Bubinka

          I haven’t seen her movies, but it seems like I see her in ads for several different products and also for several upcoming movies. I think that constitutes some kind of momentum, even if the movies end up panned.
          And having done interviews for different purposes as the interviewer and interviewee, it is possible for an interviewer to guide the interview in certain directions, and then when writing the story to also expunge material you don’t want to include, even in a QnA format. Unless I’m in the room, I have no way of knowing how much non-engagement she tried to discuss.

  • libraangel

    She looks beautiful, but scared about that boobie popping out!

  • thelovelydove

    She’s gorgeous. I would have gone with more Penelope Tree-inspired looks for the editorial though.

  • http://twitter.com/TVcastingcall Reality TV Casting

    boob job or photoshop?

  • kathrineb

    Love her in the cover photo. The dress is great for this purpose.

  • blueberrypanckae

    peek-a boobs I see you !

  • Anniebet

    Holy square jaw, Batman! She manages to turn it into an asset! Lovely photos, even if the cover makes her head look like it’s on a stem.

  • andreawey

    that purple is definitely her color!

  • http://twitter.com/SongBird3411 Mindy

    The cover photo is really weird. There is some strange photoshop there, or else the way she is posed and lit is awful. The other photos are okay, even if they are a bit Stevie Nicks. She seems interesting, but what a bland story. I love her eyes. And the blue color is nice on her. Shame about her hair, though.
