Style File: Olivia Munn Had Herself a Sparkly Weekend in Balmain and Nicolas Jebran

Posted on August 29, 2017

Darlings, there are two very notable (if you’re into noting these sorts of things, that is) aspects of Miss Olivia’s weekend wardrobe. The first is that she stuck rather rigidly to a theme. The second is that she wore two pretty great looks in a row.

What can we say? The lady’s style record is sporadic.

 

Olivia Munn attends the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight in Las Vegas in Balmain.

Our first impulse is to declare a Balmain minidress for a boxing match to be a very silly choice.  She had no need to show up and promote herself; just show up looking ready for pictures, given her fame. Even so, this works. This was clearly a big-money, big-celebrity (and even, given McGregor himself, big fashion) kind of event. As much as she might have, she really doesn’t come across over-dressed for it. In fact, we’d call this just right. It’s colorful and eye-catching and sparkly. She looks great. But it’s not some insanely attention-seeking look. It’s photogenic and she looks hot. That’s all that’s needed.

But Miss Girl was NOT finished with sparkly minis after the fight. She still had a seeking-teen-dollars appearance on her schedule:

And again, it’s kind of cute, kind of glam, a little sexy, and not try-hard in the slightest. We don’t love this one as much as the Balmain, though. For one, the skin-colored background color of the dress makes for a less impressive look. Second, we’re about to gag on the whimsy. Third, it’s a small thing, but that little flap of sheer around the hem is irritating. Worse, it give the illusion at first glance that something hanging out from under the dress. Still, it’s kind of fun. And even if it’s goofyily whimsical, this isn’t a bad place for that sort of thing.

Gosh, we don’t think we’ve ever written such a complimentary style post about Olivia Munn. Congrats, darling! You’ve arrived!
