Who Wore Gucci Better? Olivia Wilde or Kelly Ripa

Olivia Wilde wore this beautiful Gucci Pre-Fall 2012 black silk strapless gown with a black crystal and sequin embroidered velvet belt detail to the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party held in West Hollywood back in February.

The actress accessorized her look with a gold choker, matching bangles and a Salvatore Ferragamo gold-and-black fold-over clutch. A high bun, cat eyes, and a nude colour provided the finishing touches.

Kelly Ripa wore the same gown last month whilst attending The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center 5th Annual Spring Ball in New York City.

The TV presenter’s gown, which was slightly modified to include thin straps, was accessorized with a black box clutch and a black peep-toes.

Soft waves and pink lips completed her look.

Olivia wins for me as I love the gold accessories, plus I prefer the gown strapless.

Olivia Wilde In Mason by Michelle Mason – ‘Deadfall’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Olivia Wilde managed to redeem herself, somewhat, on the red carpet on Sunday night for the ‘Deadfall’ premiere during the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.

On this occasion she wore a Mason by Michelle Mason sleeveless peplum dress with a sexy lace panel.

Her fitted dress was accessorized with a gold Adina Reyter cuff and a unique pair of Brian Atwood ‘Blanco’ platform sandals with fringed details and gold chain accents which are a bit too busy for her look.

As always, the makeup is flawless, but now that she’s worn her newly dyed blonde hair down, I can safely say I don’t like it.

I much prefer her as a brunette.

Olivia Wilde In Prada – ‘Help Wanted’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Olivia Wilde gave herself a second spot on the WDOTY list when she attended the premiere for ‘Help Wanted’ during the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday in New York City.

If I was paying someone to dress me and they handed me this black floral lace Prada dress with yellow ruched bodice, and ivory skirt underlay, I would check my calendar to see if it was April Fool’s Day, because this dress is a joke.

It looks like a combination of dresses melted together in the tumble-dryer.

There is not one good quality about it and the finish is horrific. Just look at that sloppy bodice and droopy waistband which looks like masking tape.

The only saving grace is her flawless makeup, chic updo and red hot Aperlai ‘Spoky’ sandals.

I am stunned that this is a Prada dress.

The title of this movie is very appropriate: ‘Help Wanted’.

Olivia Wilde In Yigal Azrouël – ‘The Five Year Engagement’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Olivia Wilde joined Emily Blunt on the red carpet for the opening night of the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival for the ‘The Five Year Engagement’ premiere, held at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City last night.

The now-blonde actress wore a Yigal Azrouël Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

My first reaction to this animal-print dress was “better”.

As you know, Olivia’s red-carpet mojo has been M.I.A. for a while now, but she looked beautiful in this short-sleeve maxi dress.

Gold Ippolita earrings and a gold Jimmy Choo clutch completed her look.

Do you like Olivia’s new blonde do?

Who Wore Carolina Herrera Better? Manuela Velasco or Olivia Wilde

Manuela Velasco stunned on the red carpet at the 2012 Goya Awards, held in Madrid earlier this year, wearing a Carolina Herrera Spring 2012 gown.

The TV presenter teamed her off-white, taupe and sepia dot-print silk-chiffon pleated gown with antique silver crystal embroidery with an unexpected blue clutch.

On Olivia Wilde the gown looks totally different. Matronly is how many of you described her look.

The actress wore her dress to the 2012 Jameson Empire Awards in London this weekend.

With her red carpet mojo still M.I.A. and for pairing this gown with clunky black pumps, this was an easy win for Manuela.

Olivia Wilde In Carolina Herrera – 2012 Jameson Empire Awards

Olivia Wilde was in London last night for the 2012 Jameson Empire Awards.

The actress wore a Carolina Herrera Spring 2012 gown for the occasion.

Her off-white, taupe and sepia dot-print silk-chiffon pleated gown with antique silver crystal embroidery is just lost on her.

On the model, the gown is so elegant, but it gets lost in translation on the red carpet.

This gown is so forgettable on Olivia, as she breathes no life into the look. Her red carpet mojo has been MIA for a while now; this proved that she’s yet to regain it.

Her look was teamed with a Jimmy Choo black clutch, black pumps and styled with a simple updo.

Black pumps? With this gown?

I’m truly baffled.

The actress drew full attention to her gorgeous face with a sleek ballerina bun and kohl-rimmed eyes.
