Olivia Munn In Marchesa – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Olivia Munn In Marchesa - 2013 White House Correspondents' Association DinnerAfter bringing a shot of sunny yellow to the Time 100 Gala, Olivia Munn walked a darker line at the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, hosted last night at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C.

‘The Newsroom’ actress played her own political game here, appealing to two sides of fashion—the refined and the razzle-dazzle—with her Marchesa design.

On the one hand, this was just a simple black dress. On the other, the elaborately embellished bib collar brought a bolt of gleam to the otherwise plain-Jane gown.

With the waterfall of sparkle, Olivia didn’t need a glut of accessories.

She polished off the look with a Marchesa clutch and a simple drop earring, paired with a sleek top-knot and bronze glow.

Too much or just enough?

    I don’t like her hairstyle. The idea of an updo is ok, but not a top-knot.

      I love it. It seems very appropriate for the occasion.

  2. Yeliz April 28, 2013 at 15:38 #

    Just enough, she looks gorgeous.

  3. Christine April 28, 2013 at 15:49 #

    Not a bad look. I like the center part.

  4. Kathy April 28, 2013 at 15:50 #

    One of the best dressed of the evening, in my opinion. She looks beautiful and accessorized perfectly, letting the collar speak for itself.

    • Appollonia April 28, 2013 at 18:53 #

      I totally agree with you.

    Olivia gives me the same vibe I get from Jessica Biel, they suck the life out of everything they were on the red carpet and this for me is no exception.

    It’s a simple look, but I really like it. It’s very elegant and quietly striking.

      +1.

    I love it. I usually have mixed feelings with her looks, it’s either the shoes or the length or the fit that I don’t like. But I must say, she’s on a roll lately. I hope she continues to be.

    I like it. I also liked the yellow dress she wore last week. This is a great look and very flattering on her.

  9. Rosanna April 28, 2013 at 18:38 #

    Just enough, love it!

  10. TeaAtTwo April 28, 2013 at 19:14 #

    I really like everything about this look. She feels actually elegant.

  11. Aline April 28, 2013 at 21:02 #

    This dress is just so boring. So much so that it seems that the sparkly collar was added as an afterthought to prevent it from being too bland.

    The severe hairstyle doesn’t help either. This look definitely ages her.

  12. asherlev1 April 28, 2013 at 21:43 #

    Wow. I think she looks pretty decent here. She’s never my favorite, but I’m surpisingly OK with this look here.

  13. Nat39 April 28, 2013 at 22:44 #

    She styled the look perfectly, simple and elegant without being dull.

  14. Alicat April 28, 2013 at 23:56 #

    Simple, elegant and chic but not standout.

  15. Prudence April 29, 2013 at 04:28 #

    idk…I am rather bored by this look. It is not the usual over the top Marchesa dresses which I prefer. Once again she is just meh.

  16. Jess2 April 29, 2013 at 11:55 #

    She isn’t selling this at all, I’m kind of bored by it.

  17. dee April 29, 2013 at 13:31 #

    This is just OK.

  18. Nat April 29, 2013 at 14:03 #

    I liked it. It is dress appropriated. I mean I hoped more coming from her since she is not a journalist and that look I would expect from a journalist.

  19. Moxie April 29, 2013 at 15:36 #

    Just enough. She looks elegant, but not particularly memorable.

  20. Noemi April 29, 2013 at 20:31 #

    I usually don’t like her style, but she look very good here, the dress is so beautiful and needs no accessories.
