Fug or Fab: Olivia Wilde


fug-or-fab

This has been kicking around in my lightbox since the beginning of the week, mostly because I don’t know what to say about it.

My feelings range from “meh” to “bleergh” to “weeeeh” to “wow, IMDb says she has six movies coming out in the next two years, so we are going to be seeing a lot of this mug over the next twenty-four months” to “I can’t believe she is still dating Sudekis, and if I were Sudekis’s ex, I might surreptitiously give this photo the finger, even if I were totally over him” to “this is like a really elegant Guinevere costume.”

Tell me YOUR feelings:

    Between the pattern & embellishment on the dress, the background and the carpet I might have a seizure.

    Looks like chain-mail

      Yeah, that’s what I was thinking. Why’s she wearing chainmail?

      That’s EXACTLY what I was thinking too! Totally looks like chain mail… like she wants to be in Game of Thrones or something.

      She’s clearly heading to the Ren Faire right after this…but she doesn’t look very happy about it.

    Chain mail over repurposed potato sacks?

    She looks like a Knight of the Round Table

    I love silver but this is COMPLETELY boring, possibly because of all the transparency and poofy sleeves and weird lining. The only shred of personality is in her eyebrows, which are very pretty. Otherwise, fancy wallpaper.

    She’s not wearing this well at all. It looked much better on the runway, not nearly as slouchy and slumpy.

    This is fugly. Design, cut, and fit are all atrocious. If it makes her look dumpy, imagine what it would do to mere mortals.

    I feel like she’s going to be taking a role in A Game of Thrones

    Between her and Biehl hiding those bodies under those GunnySax dresses, I don’t know what the hell is going on.

    I have never liked her, and I do not like this dress.

    This looks like it would fit so perfectly in the movie “Excalibur.” Which is one of my favorite movies, but I think it takes a special event to dress like that in real life. Is anyone wearing armor or carrying a grail?
    “Listen, strange women lyin’ in ponds distributin’ swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.. .Oh, but you can’t expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.” Ha ha, a little Monty Python, too

    this is so wrong (and i’m sorry!) but all i can see here is… hair. you know? like spangly lady-hair plus weirdo spangly manly-chest-hair. i think it’s because parts of it are sheer and it feels like the dress is implying something? something AWFUL.

    You can get a sort of cool animated effect by scrolling the picture off the top edge of the monitor. A bit dizzying, but interesting.

    I don’t know. I feel the dress has promise, but it’s a bit like those very cheap Indian cotton dresses from street vendors that are mostly ALMOST really nice, and also very cheap, so you convince yourself you need them even though they’re actually merely droopy cotton things with unexpected drawstrings and slightly off block printing.

    Yes, I was definitely getting an Arthurian/Grecian/Awkward-Epic-Ridley-Scott-Turned-Down vibe.

    hmm, Guinevere meets Joan of Arc.. and I think you had something there with her wanting a part on Game of Thrones!

      She should be so lucky, to get a part in Game of Thrones. That show is beyond awesome!
      I know I’m in the minority, but I don’t think this is so bad. Granted, it’s not strikingly beautiful, but its… okay. At least the lining goes all the way to the floor. And there’s no undergarments showing.. Maybe it would have been better without the sleeves?

    The whole thing looks very poor man’s Angelina Jolie to me. Angie has enough charisma to pull this sort of thing off while Olivia just doesn’t. Which is probably why she’ll never be the huge star Hollywood apparently wants her to be.

    It has potential. Maybe if it were sleeveless….

    is she still claiming to be 28?

    I bet this is pretty up close, but the print and the embellishment are too half-assed to photograph well. Actually, calling it half-assed might be too generous – this is quarter-assed.

    I’m actually getting poor man’s Jane Seymour.

    I dont know what a “lightbox” is but it sounds naughty..

    I would love the embellishment on a better fabric and better sleeves. On black velvet and sleeveless that embellishment would be a knock-out.

    See, I wasn’t liking it at all, until you said “this is like a really elegant Guinevere costume.” And I’m not a Renfairy kind of girl at all, but now all I see is chain mail and that’s kind of awesome.

    God, I wish people would stop trying to make Olivia Wilde happen. She’s not going to happen!

    I voted that I feel nothing but actually I feel sorry for her. It seems she is less attractive in each new picture.

    I love it! I’d wear it! I WANT IT!!! I just wish she had done more with her hair & makeup, but I think the dress is divine!

    this kinda looks like polka dot chain mail, but I love it nonetheless

    She’s either going jousting or shark feeding afterwards. At least that’s what her dress reminds me of, some kind of metal mesh fabric.

    Do I spy sweat marks or is it an optical fug allusion.

    It’s really sad that she goes from working on House to working at the Medieval Times.
