In or Out: Olivia Wilde in Gucci

Posted on August 08, 2011

We’re questioning our instincts on this one. At first, we were all, “Oh, this is undoubtedly a WERQ entry,” but then we got to looking at it and now we can’t tell if it’s fierce or tacky. The line between the two is but a hair’s breadth.

Olivia Wilde attends Cowboys & Aliens photocall during the 64th Festival del Film di Locarno in Locarno, Switzerland in a Gucci dress, Brian Atwood shoes, and earrings by Carrera y Carrera.

Kind of “Bob Mackie for Cher” fabulous, right?

But also really heavy-looking, right? And maybe just a little too dangley, swingy, fringey? This dress must sound like a wind chime. And there sure is an awful lot of stuff going on around the neck and shoulders, yes? We fear this dress left a lot of bruises.

We’re not exactly being the strong, declarative, take-no-prisoners bitchy gay bloggers you know, love, and emulate here, are we? We literally change our minds every time we look at it.

All right, here we go. Find your bitchy gay balls, T Lo.

Hair and makeup we only sort of like, but that’s a taste thing. Truth be told, we think she shouldn’t outline her eyes so heavily and she should get away from the up ‘dos. There’s no jewelry (for which we are thankful, for once) and the shoes are hidden, so it’s all about the dress. And the dress is bold and attention-seeking, no doubt about it. It also suits her. Like we said, we feel like there’s too much stuff up around the top, but once you start complaining about too much anything, you’ve pretty much lost the point of the dress. It’s supposed to be heavy, dramatic, and impractical looking.

Okay, we’ve talked our way back into loving it for being a drama queen dress. The final call, as always, is up to the collective minion masses.



OUT! It’s all good fun until someone loses an eye.

Elisabeth Moss got a very stern talking-to by the commentariat, who almost unanimously declared her sexy septuagenarian dress a bid ol’ OUT.
