Olivia Wilde's High-Fashion Goal: "I Even Dream of Buying A Balmain Jacket"

While it may seem that most Hollywood actresses have luxe labels at their fingertips, House‘s Olivia Wilde still has a lengthy wish list when it comes to fashion. Lucky‘s latest cover girl tells the magazine, “I even dream of buying a Balmain jacket with really sharp shoulders. If I can pull off that look, I will have succeeded, at least partially, in my quest.” As for her desire to achieve Parisian-chic style, we think Olivia is already there–even sans the Balmain. For one thing, there’s the 25 year-old’s love of hipster, biker leather. “A cool leather jacket is my security blanket. No matter what I have on underneath, I feel more like myself when I’m wearing one,” she says. When it’s time to add to her outerwear collection, the starlet’s go-to resource is refreshingly mainstream: “Coats from H&M are inexpensive and usually have something extra going on—so even with a simple sheath dress, your outfit is still interesting,” she says. The down-to-earth actress also favors Helmut Lang staples for their versatility. “I own a lot of Helmut Lang. The pieces are practical in the sense that you can wear them every day, but they’re not boring at all.” Check out more of Olivia Wilde’s fashion and beauty picks in the January issue of Lucky, on newsstands December 8, or at luckymag.com.
