Olivia Munn in J. Mendel at the VF Oscar party: gorgeous or too revealing?

Olivia Munn showed off another 2016 Oscar trend – metallics – as she modeled a beaded, gunmetal gown by J. Mendel at the Vanity Fair post-Oscar party on Sunday night. The actress went more demure at the ceremony, but I guess wanted to “let it all hang out” (almost quite literally) after the show. The gown, which looks kind of reptilian to me, featured an “up to there” side slit and gratuitous underboob. She also let her hair down, eschewing a bun for a long ponytail. She kept her jewelry simple with a pair of teardrop earrings. I much prefer the orange Stella McCartney dress she wore for the red carpet, but I do like this better than the gown she wore for Oscar festivities last year, which CB very aptly referred to as having a “sparkly shelf for her boobs.” I was hoping to see a photo of Olivia with beau Aaron Rodgers, but I’m sure he didn’t change out of his tux for the party. Lucky men.

2016 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland looked dazzling in a sparkly silver gown by Blumarine at the 24th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Oscar Viewing Party on Sunday night. The plunging neckline was dramatic and Sarah wisely skipped a necklace, accessorizing instead with a simple bracelet, ring and drop earrings. She kept her hair simple with a slightly tousled bob and brought our her doe eyes with a smoky palette. Sarah’s boyfriend, British actor Dominic Sherwood, posed with her looking quite dreamy in his tuxedo.

Oscar winner Hilary Swank also attended Elton’s party with boyfriend Ruben Torres. The actress wore a gown from the Michael Kors Collection’s Fall 2016 line, consisting of a sequined silver (and slightly see-through) top paired with a sleek full-length black skirt with a high slit. Hilary completed the look with dark nail polish, diamond drop earrings, a black clutch and strappy sandals. She had her long hair swept to the side. I actually kind of like this look. I am not a big fan of Michael Kors (at least his ready-to-wear line, which has always been on the snooze-inducing side in my eyes). I dig the concept of pairing a flashy top with a simple yet elegant skirt. It’s nice to see Hilary out and about, it seems like she’s been living under the radar for a while.

Last but not least, we have Lily Collins channeling her inner “golden girl” in Saint Laurent at the Vanity Fair party. The 26-year-old British actress probably should have worn this one for the Golden Globes, as her own “globes” were partially on display in this racy gown. This one not only had a plunging neckline and front slit to highlight her legs (and gold sandals), but showed off lots of skin from the side view, including Lily’s most recent skin art – a fairy seated on a crescent moon accompanied by the words “fairytale ending.” Lily evoked a silent film era siren with her wavy hair, bold eye makeup and berry lips. I like the concept and the look Lily’s going for, but there’s just so much skin exposed here. I’m no one’s mother, but I would love to give her a shawl or something.

    I don’t want to body shame, but OM is pretty skinny rn. I think that’s part of why her face looks so different and her head look ginormous.

    • NYer says:

      She looks like Melissa Gilbert in the 2nd pic.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      She has always been incredibly fit and skinny, though. Her body type hasn’t changed.

    • detritus says:

      Is it concern trolling if you are legit concerned? That’s a lot of weight loss on an already slender frame and fake boobs and fake lips and then is the face shape different from weight loss or from more surgery? is there even a possible way for all of this to have come from a healthy place?

      No wonder she warned people in that interview that she’d look different. She knew people would be asking questions.

  2. bluhare says:

    The heck with the dress; what has she done to her face???

  3. Chelsey says:

    Good lord, Olivia is almost unrecognizable. Japanese potatoes, my arse. Unless potatoes is code word for plastic surgery.

    • Chelsey says:

      Ok I made this comparison:


      Crazy how different. There’s no way it’s only weight loss and proactiv.

      • bluhare says:

        So much prettier before, IMO.

        Do you lose weight in your nose? It looks narrower. And I think she’s pumped her lips too.

      • GinaS says:

        It looks like her whole jaw has changed? It it even possible to file it down that much? Her lips are different too and her eyebrows are slightly higher.

        She was beautiful before, I really don’t get it.

        Hollywood is such a sad place.

      • ell says:

        she had TONS of surgery, idk why some people are buying that she just lost weight. losing weight doesn’t change the shape of your nose and jaw, and most certainly doesn’t plump your lips.

      • elle says:

        OMG… she looks like she had a jaw transplant. How do they change the shape of someone’s jaw like that? Seems like it would require a LOT of recovery time.

    • Susan says:

      Agreed. I’m kind of amazed her changes are THIS blatant…and that she’s working so hard to deny it.

  4. missmerry says:

    there is something so off about Munn’s face. I can’t stand it. lol.

  5. radio active says:

    Olivia’s face hurts my feelings.

  6. OriginallyBlue says:

    Not a fan of Olivia’s or Lily’s dresses. Olivia is looking really “done” and looks like she is turning into Megan Fox. Something nice, I like the makeup on both of them.

  7. lucy2 says:

    I love Hilary’s look. Sarah’s isn’t bad but a little more fabric up front wouldn’t hurt. Olivia’s looks painful, and Lily’s looks kind of trashy.

  8. kri says:

    Japanese potato extract fillers? Good god, stop messing with your faces. I hate bad PS. If that J.Mendel didnt have that cut-out boob panel I would like it. I love Lily’s Old Hwood throwback.

  9. Green Is Good says:


  10. Lurker says:

    What’s up with Olivia Munn’s face? She’s unrecognizable.

  11. WTW says:

    Olivia Munn doesn’t even look like the same person any more. The lower half of her face especially looks different. Not saying she looks bad. Just not like the same person she was before.

  12. Hiddlesgirl85 says:

    Olivia Munn has like changed the shape of her face! Yikes — she looks so different. Her jawline has changed. So have her nose, eye shape, and lips. She was such a gorgeous woman before the drastic changes.

    I don’t blame her entirely, I blame the pressures of Hollywood.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      It’s in the blind gossips. She just had work done on her eyes and cheeks to lose the Asian look. What a shame!

      I do not blame Hollywood for that. Others, like Lucy Liu, Maggy Q, and Bai Ling had some pretty good roles and they didnt’ need to look Euro to get them and that was 10+ years ago. Munn just isn’t a very good actress so she’s resorting to look European to get more sexy roles. If that’s what she wants, fine, but sexy roles don’t make a great actress.

  13. holly hobby says:

    What did Olivia do with her face? I would not have known it was her if the picture wasn’t captioned!

  14. Anon says:

    Seriously Olivia Munn face look painful, so pinched, and oh god her lips ?!!!!

  15. Siearra says:

    What has Olivia done to her face?

  16. Hejhej says:

    It’s sad that she has messed with her face. Add that kind of dress and the effect is just THIRSTYYYY, not wow which is just .. she was so pretty. Totally unnecessary!

  17. Maum says:

    I’m usually very underwhelmed by Lily Collins but her hair and makeup looked beautiful.

    She should be an extra at a bal scene in Downton Abbey.

    Shame the dress was open at the front though. If the legs had been covered it would have been drop dead gorgeous. As it is crotch annd side boobs is too much.

    • kay says:

      was that second pose done deliberately that way to highlight the side boob? like she has her arm jacked at an odd angle, and i reckon it *must* be to hightlight the side boob.
      i actually dig the dress and look, which is odd since i don’t like gold. i don’t like high slits. i don’t like plunging neck lines. lol. but it just works…???? 🙂

      • Bridget says:

        She showed up like this to the VF party, which is a work networking party – meaning, she’s specifically trying to project this sexy image to people that she wants to cast her. No shock there, as her movies have been such duds that it’s time for a re-brand

  18. Neelyo says:

    Munn must have gotten those lip injections at a strip mall. With her mouth closed she looks drunk because of the perma-lip curl. Hope those things go down.

  19. georgia says:

    I just want to say that I’m enjoying the celebitifation of Corey! What I like about this blog is the fun reactions of the bloggers and their take on gossip more than the clothes or the stories themselves. In the first articles, Corey’s style was very standard gossip magazine-like, so I appreciate the latest articles.
    “I’m no one’s mother, but I would love to give her a shawl or something” – there’s a good ending right there 🙂

  20. Aki says:

    Lily Collins’s is starting to morph into the Keira Knightley/Daisy Ridley/Lily James British actress standard.

    IMO Olivia Munn was gorgeous. Quirky, beautiful and with a memorable face. Now she looks awful – like she’s frightened of cracking, almost. I’m hoping these are temporary changes. It’s a damn shame, but explains last week’s pre-emptive “Japanese potatoes” posting. She knew what was coming.

  21. ell says:

    i can’t look at this woman’s face anymore, it’s the same change renee zellweger had a while ago. i’m not against surgery btw, but why lie???

  22. lila fowler says:

    What did Olivia do to her face? She looks so… odd now.

  23. TreadStyle says:

    I’m so sad that Olivia messed with her face. She was a true natural beauty. I’m truly bummed for her bc u can’t go back! Lily Collins maybe tries too hard and over does what she’s going for. All I know is I’m glad they stopped trying to make her happen as an actress, or at least I think they have. Sarah Hyland is just too cute all the time.

  24. serena says:

    I love Sarah’s dress!!

  25. deemo says:

    Olivia’s smile looks painful in that second pic. Seriously, why do these already lovely women mess with their faces?

  26. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    She has had loads of surgery, wow! I think the latest is something to do with her eyes. They’re larger. I really don’t like her, but she was kinda funny while presenting.

  27. SM says:

    How about that new face Olivia is wearing? Or am I seeing too much from my corner?

    • Jessica says:

      Nope, it’s definitely a new face, no matter how much she will deny it. How stupid does she think everyone is? But if she wants to keep messing with her face, maybe she’ll overdo it so much that nobody will want to cast her anymore, since she doesn’t get roles based on acting ability in the first place. And then maybe she will finally go away. Works for me.

      And the dress – shows how thirsty she always is.

  28. dj says:

    Olivia’s new face is making me sad. She was so striking before and like KK is erasing what made her unique. Maybe a new chin implant and something around the eyes? Again, I am sad.

  29. Sarah01 says:

    Love Hilary’s dress! I haven’t seen her in ages, love to see her again.

  30. Char says:

    Olivia’s whole face is different! It looks like she did something to her jaw, nose, lips, & eyes, she is unrecognizable, & I agree with those who’ve said she looks like Megan Fox, that is the 1st thing I thought when I saw the 2nd photo. She may not be the best actress, but I loved her crazy character in Perfect Couples. I even liked her small part in Magic Mike; she was better than the main actress. Do you think it makes her parents sad that she has changed her whole face? She was lovely before.

  31. Cc says:

    Wow, Olivia looks stunning in that dress, like a futuristic princess. I also love Hilary’s dress on her.

  32. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I just saw her in an old ep of New Girl, otherwise I wouldn’t have known her enough to see a difference but wow. Yep. So young to have so much going on, her whole face looks different.

    Lily Collins is so, so thin now. ugh. What price beauty, Hollywood.
