Olivia Munn in Alberta Ferretti in Malibu

Posted on June 01, 2016

Olivia Munn spotted at Nobu in Malibu, California.


Girl, we know you look good in purple and this does make for a nice bit of casual branding for your movie, but…

DAMN, that is one tricky-ass dress.

Bad enough that the bodice looks like a halfway-finished summer camp craft project, but even that skirt is a little more complicated than it needs to be. And worst of all, she had to top it off with a lace choker, which looks like something a serial killer puts on his victims.

It’s a shame. It’s half of a decent look. If that bodice was a hell of a lot simpler and she ditched the creepy Take-me-Dracula choker, the rest of it would make for a fabulous summer daytime look. The hair is fantastic.

Although the bag and shoes really don’t do much for it either way, do they? Let’s all pick alternatives. We’re thinking a massive tote and something a bit lighter and easier on the feet than those disco heels.

    ‘lace choker, which looks like something a serial killer puts on his victims’

    DEAD. I will never look at chokers the same way again.

    • It’s Kimmy

      yo I choked on my Iced coffee when I read that bwahahaha

      • HannahAlice

        There is a girl sitting across from me who is wearing a choker who must think I am the biggest bitch in the world because I keep looking at her and barely managing to contain my laughter

    • rissa42210

      savage af

    • conniemd

      I think of something that Dakota Johnson probably had put on her by Christian Gray. (Did not watch the movie or read the book)

    • quiltrx

      Esther in ‘Orphan’ is all I see now when I see a choker!

    • smayper

      And then “Take me Dracula”….Snorting!!

  • pasdebourree

    I like the hair and dress, but the bag and choker ruin the effect.

  • TFinn734

    There’s Tricky Ass, and then there’s Tacky Ass. This dress effortlessly crosses the line.

    • Rebecca

      Right. I actually read it as Tacky Ass as first and I was going to wholeheartedly agree.

  • Jangle57

    ‘Take me Dracula choker’ – for the win!

  • laura

    “like something a serial killer puts on his victims” Bahahaha! Amazing. I really hope chokers are not becoming a thing again.

    I like the shoes, actually. And the killer shades. I agree that a large tote would be better.

  • GemFemme

    That’s a Khalessi gown.

    • TamiSeattle

      Exactly my first impression!

  • stellavision

    Vanessa Hudgens at Coachella.

    • Imasewsure

      Sans the stank boot of course

  • Honey, no. Coachella is over now.

  • Janet B

    Did they get a free t-shirt with lunch?

    A large tote would be nice, along with strappier sandals and a real bodice.

  • ANWrootbeers

    Hm. How about choosing a different dress and bag to go with the shoes, hair, shades, and earrings? And burn the serial killer choker.

  • shirab

    It is so tricky to get those potholders off the metal frame when you’re done, isn’t it? The fabric loops always jump off as you’re turning the corner.

    • quiltrx

      Upvoted because I didn’t see you before I made my potholder reference!

  • graziella

    I like the hair and perfect for the almost summer heat.

  • SugarSnap108

    The bodice is ludicrous in its complications, and being choked by a piece of lace is just silly. I love her hair, though.

  • Ced

    It’s all too Kardashianesque, including the shades and hair.

    • Gatita

      Oh please let’s not allow the Kardashians to claim braided hair for themselves. I love that look and I refuse to let Kim pollute that for me.

  • Anna

    Take away the accessories and she could be Prostitute #7 in Littlefinger’s Brothel.

    • CelandineM

      I thought “summer camp craft bondage harness” which would also work in Littlefinger’s brothel.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      But she would still be overdressed for that establishment

  • MilaXX

    Add another inch or 2 to the top, loose the choker & this works for me.

  • Karen B

    Before you even said “summer craft project”, I was reminiscing about those crappy pot holders I used to make my mom, who bless her heart, still used them.

    • PhillyDeb

      My mom not only used them, but saved them all, and now I am 58 and she’s gone and I’ve inherited many of them (unused) back! There must have been hundreds of them.

  • suzinrva

    Potholder loom project gone wrong.

  • Gingerblu

    yes potholders that is what she looks like she is wearing………really gurl? and don’t you love the onlookers, as if to say “of course”.

  • Lily

    Tricky-ass or tacky-ass? I go with the latter.

  • VCR1

    I can’t imagine how long it took to put this dress on and how awkward it’d be to sit in it. I’m thinking if the dress was more finished and simpler, no choker, a better cross body purse (lighter material, no chains) and strappy sandals, those would be my suggestions. I do love the hair and sunglasses.

  • Gingerblu

    you know if they had made on big woven piece as a halter or even those strappy thing straps but had it be one solid piece it might have been kinda cute.

  • marlie

    Simple bodice, a more summery bag, and flat sandals, and this would work. And no lace choker (I still refuse to acknowledge that they’re coming back).

  • E. D.

    Get rid of the choker and get a better bag and this wouldn’t be as terrible as it is.

  • jif

    Like: hair, shoes, back of dress. No like: front of dress.

  • flamingoNW

    The bag does nothing for the dress. Not that anything could really save it, but just sayin’

  • steph

    Caught leaving the Intro to Shibari 101 class.

    • Saturnine


  • shopgirl716

    That’s the kind of dress that would take forever to figure out in the dressing room, if you ever did figure it out. Her boobs look fabulous.

    • Bernd

      Putting it on requires an advanced degree in engineering. But my inner PR-contestant often thinks about bodices like that for a alternate materials challenge. The transition from bodice to skirt is very bad.

  • Tee

    Purple and brown always makes me think of grape flavored tootsie pops.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      How many licks does it take to get to the center? 🙂

      • Tee

        If it’s Aaron Rogers take as many as you need . . .

  • Saturnine

    As an 80s kid, I have to confess I have fond memories of chokers. But I don’t think I’ve ever come across a more apt description than “lace choker, which looks like something a serial killer puts on his victims” in my entire reading life.

  • Lilithcat

    Reminds me of that macramé and washer bathing suit that guy did on PR several seasons ago.

    • quiltrx

      My mind had shoved that back into a corner til I just read your comment LOL

  • boweryboy

    Hot mess. Even the people in the background look like they’re smirking at her.

    • Snailstsichr

      The guy in the blue shorts has the best expression ever.

      • bessann28

        Although he looks like he could use some help in the fashion department himself…

  • That dress was designed for a woman with no boobs whatsoever. Like the model.

  • Diane

    I hate that bodice… hate… but the rest of the dress could be something, taking away that underskirt or whatever it is. The hair is great !! How about some flat sandals and a big tote.

  • Shannyn Marie

    Girl I’m so happy for you, winning that potholder challenge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She actually looks pretty *whispery insecure voice*

  • clatie

    That looks like she bought it at a bathing suit store on the Atlantic City boardwalk in 1978.

  • AnneElliot

    Well, the skirt is lined, so that’s something.

  • FuhUgh

    That’s a tricky-ass macrame planter, not a dress.

  • Imasewsure

    Love the hair, love the skirt but the top looks like she made it in summer camp

  • Tracy_Flick

    I think I might hate the shades the worst. They’re not objectively bad, they’re just are really unflattering on her.

  • jen

    That sad little choker is so ridiculous.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Weaving In 10 Easy Lessons – By Alberta Ferretti.

  • Jet City Mama

    My mom used to make macrame plant holders that looked just like that bodice.

  • ojosazules

    Almost fabulous.

  • EEKstl

    “…And worst of all, she had to top it off with a lace choker, which looks like something a serial killer puts on his victims.”

    I live for you guys.

    • A_guy01

      It was “Take-me-Dracula Choker” that made me spit coffee on my keyboard and get a weird look from my boss.
      Bless you, Uncles.

  • BrooklynBomber

    The dress is an abomination. The collar, though, is in a category of its own. It’s a lost bet. A hickey coverup. A shakedown. It brings to mind two stories: 1. Jerry Seinfeld and the puffy shirt and 2. the scary story we liked to tell when we were kids about the mysterious woman who always wore a lace collar; when someone finally removed it, her head fell off. Also, that collar retails for $98, and comes in bone, blush, or black.

  • oohsparkley!

    I like the back of the dress, the front needs twice as much coverage. Lose the choker and bag, then it’s a win.

  • Macrame barely passed muster when it was used for hanging plant holders. In this context it’s just tragic.

  • Sanglots longs

    We can see why that summer-camp macrame project didn’t work out. What a mess.

  • Shouldercat

    Great color, but much prefer the runway version and styling. Seriously, why is the choker trend back. Reliving 1993 right now!

  • tereliz

    Dress? Is this not a macrame plant hanger?

  • Ind Prod

    This choker trend has to end.

  • MissAmynae

    She should just walk backwards. That back detail and her hair are just cool.

  • CaaroMama

    I have always hated lace chokers. I can’t explain it but they make me was to break something.

  • SomeWankerSaid

    The dress looks like one of Uli’s designs from season 3 of Project Runway

  • quiltrx

    Gah, I wish I had been there so I could have yelled “POTHOLDER TITS!” at her!
    I obviously did not look at *other* ways I could have used my little loom as a girl…

  • Kaonashi

    The hair, makeup, and skirt are fab.Everything from the waist up is too busy, and the top doesn’t seem like it offers that much support.

  • OrangeChia


    Sorry for the caps but I did actually yell in real life.

  • Keeva

    She always gives me major boob envy.

  • oneWEIRDword

    Good glory.

  • librarygrrl64

    Hobo bag and flat sandals with a little shine to them.

  • Leah

    Would the bodice be so bad if the sides and the part in front with the 3 horizontal lines were filled in? Would that tone it down enough? It’s like if a couple puzzle pieces were filled in, I could get on board, after the choker was burned of course.

  • littlemac8

    This is a dress that calls for a clutch. There’s already too much fooferall going in. Ditch the choker and the bag!
