Olivia Wilde in Marc Jacobs at the ELLE 2016 Women in Television Dinner

Posted on January 21, 2016

“Vinyl” actress Olivia Wilde attends the ELLE’s 6th Annual Women in Television Dinner Presented by Hearts on Fire Diamonds and Olay at Sunset Tower in West Hollywood, California.

 

This may be a rebuke to the “Just throw a moto over any dress” school of style thinking.

On paper, this should work. The print has a punk-lite feel to it that theoretically could only help integrate the moto jacket into the ensemble. But the cut of the dress – especially the way the skirt just hangs off her and stops at mid-calf -doesn’t lend itself to a short, cropped jacket. In addition, as much as the print gives the look some edginess, it’s … well, not very pretty, is it? We suspect it would make a great t-shirt, but a whole dress of screaming faces is a little off-putting. We’ll give her credit for picking something so off-the-beaten-path for an event like this. And considering her upcoming late-seventies music industry drama series, we also have to give her props for injecting real rock-and-roll edge to her style lately. But this all sounds better on paper than it looks in real life.
