Olivia Wilde Blows Away the Competition and Earns Best-Dressed Title

Really, it’s a wonder any star even got dressed and hit the red carpet after Olivia Wilde stepped out earlier this week in her gorgeous Osman dress. Why even try to compete with this look?

The actress and bride-to-be paired the strapless red midi with nude accessories and a coordinating bold pout for the We’re the Millers premiere in N.Y.C. The ensemble earned her nearly 26,000 votes from readers, significantly more than the runner-up, Emily VanCamp.

VanCamp surprised us by landing in that second spot with her suede turtleneck halter dress. (Suede? And a turtleneck? In the summer? Really?) Though we can’t deny that the Revenge star looks smoking hot in the design.

Also of note on the list this week: Eva Longoria in her own version of a formal turtleneck (these are officially having a moment) and Sharon Stone killing it in a white pencil skirt and silky black button-down.


What do you think of Wilde’s red dress? Does it deserve all the love it’s getting or do you think another look should be in the top spot?

From Date Night to Brunch, Exactly What to Wear This Weekend

Aug/09/2013 at 04:32 PM ET

We have three fun looks that will take you from a flirty date to a three-mimosa brunch to a Powerpoint presentation with minimal effort. You can’t miss with any of them — we may just try all three!

Diane Kruger striped shirt

Saturday night: Diane Kruger manages to take boyfriend jeans to a date-night-appropriate level. How? With a killer pair of heels, chic striped top and red cross-body bag. And since guys are always gushing about how they love a girl in jeans, take a cue from the actress and give the LBD a rest for a more laid-back look.

Nab a pair of Diane’s exact Blank NYC jeans for $88, or check out the Express jean sale (we’re loving this ankle-rolled pair). Complete the look with a striped top like this one from Forever 21 (only $12.80!) and embellished heels like this Jeffrey Campbell pair on sale for $49.95.

Olivia Wilde Dishes On Wedding Dress Details

In the PDA-packed months leading up to her wedding to Jason Sudeikis, Olivia Wilde has been tight-lipped about what she’ll wear to walk down the aisle — until now.

The star spills in the August issue of InStyle that she’ll be in Monique Lhuillier, and her lucky bridesmaids will too.

Rather than “that tortured tradition of forcing them to wear a ridiculous dress they’ll never wear again,” she says, “they’ll have a real creation tailored for each of them. They can dye it black or purple and wear it forever.”

So that gives us one more clue: The bridesmaid dresses will be light-colored! It’s a sweet and girlie touch for former tough girl Wilde, who shares that her teenage style was inspired by ’70s male musicians — think lots of polyester. “Boys were my role models back then,” she tells the magazine.

Her style has come a long way since then: Wilde shares her can’t-live-without style finds (including an ALC dress “my boyfriend loves almost more than I do”) and, refreshingly, talks about how happy she is in this moment. We’ve got a feeling we’re going to see one beaming, beautiful bride very soon!

For lots more on Wilde’s style (including her evolving looks, best red carpet moments and prettiest hairdos), visit and pick up the new issue, on stands Friday.

Tell us: What do you think of Wilde’s wedding gown (and bridesmaid dress) plans?

Yes, you can wear colorful eyeliner without looking like you wandered out of Working Girl. Just let these stars show you how.

On the easy end of the colored liner spectrum is Olivia Wilde, who makes her green eyes pop with a subtle wash of lavender shadow. Ready to start slow? Line your eyes as usual with a brown pencil, then dip a thin shadow brush into a silky powder formula (like Benefit’s Velvet eyeshadow in “Orchid Silk”) and lightly wash the shade around the eye. It’s a subtle but striking look that’s still daytime-appropriate.

If, like us, you couldn’t get enough of all the gorgeous fashion at the White House Correspondents Dinner, you’re in luck: Bloomberg and Vanity Fair hosted an after-party, giving us a glimpse at a few more head-turning looks.

Nicole Kidman offset her strawberry blonde hair with a crewneck periwinkle Emilio Pucci gown with graphic, sparkling embellishments, plus a Bottega Veneta clutch. Olivia Wilde had a flapper moment in a chocolate pleated Valentino gown with ruffles at the hips and a lace headband.

And perhaps best of all, Paul Rudd accessorized his tuxedo with the retro mustache and shaggy hair he’s growing out for the Anchorman sequel, proving that ’70s style wasn’t confined only to the ladies.

Tell us: Which look was your favorite: Kidman’s, Wilde’s or Rudd’s?
