Awards Circuit Style File: Olivia Wilde Makes an Impression at the Palm Springs Film Festival and the National Board of Review Gala

Posted on January 09, 2019

In a week when so many awards track stars were scrambling for as much attention as they could possibly secure, Miss Olivia quietly gave us a few things to talk about by using her fashion choices to make bold statements.

The pantsuit trend has officially entered its oversized phase. It’s a tough look to pull off and we’d wager most women aren’t even going to bother trying, but it can make a pretty bold and unforgettable look for a public appearance. The color is gorgeous on her and for the most part, it photographs well. But it’s hard not to notice that the pants are so unwieldy that they’re kind of a mess. We’re digging the top half and love her jewelry choices, but we just can’t love the elephant leg pants.

We don’t love this, exactly. We can see that it looks a bit like a vinyl tablecloth; that the seaming is eyelid-twitch inducing to those who like their visuals orderly; that the ruffle is horrendous and the clunky shoes are all wrong for it. But dammit, it’s a LOOK. It’s not pretty, but it is fairly trendy and it definitely makes an impression at a time when so many stars are working overtime to get attention. It’s got a slightly goofy Carrie Bradshaw feel (second time we’ve made that reference today, chinstroke emoji) that suits her. Sort of. Like we said, we don’t love it, but there’s enough going on here that we can’t hate it.
