Olivia Wilde in a boho Fendi at the Spirit Awards: lovely or washed-out?

Booksmart ended up winning Best First Film at the Independent Spirit Awards. Olivia Wilde was a first-time feature director, and having recently seen Booksmart, I do agree that Olivia deserved some recognition for the work. She was super-pleased about it too! Fashion-wise, Olivia was like Jennifer Lopez in that she overdressed a bit in this big Fendi gown. I guess it was supposed to look boho, but was it really? Mostly, I just think it was the wrong color.

Beanie Feldstein wore Markarian and this is… not great. There really should be a rule about taffeta dresses, like… don’t wear taffeta dresses if you can help it, or something. The stuff at the shoulder is bugging me massively.

I’ve finally figured out why I enjoy Kaitlyn Dever so much in films and on the red carpet – she’s like the new Ellen Page, right? She’s a pretty little doll who can ACT and she looks like Ellen Page’s little sister. Kaitlyn has been quietly killing it sartorially too – she wore Valentino for the Spirit Awards.

    Never saw Booksmart, but I watched Unbelievable with Kaitlyn Dever and she was devastatingly good in that!

  2. Laura says:

    Olivia Wilde is gorgeous but I don’t understand her penchant for Little House on the Prairie cosplay.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      To me, it screams 1970s bridesmaid- all she needs is a matching wide-brimmed, floppy hat.

    • BeanieBean says:

      It’s a variation on the Fendi ‘gown’ Goop wore recently. It’s as though we’re simultaneously back in the 70s and 80s. And 50s come to think of it, with Beanie’s dress.

  3. Esmom says:

    I actually like all of these looks. I agree the sleeves on Beanie’s are a bit OTT but in general the whole aesthetic suits her.

  4. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    I will clearly never be a fashion icon cause I don’t get most of these outfits. *shrug*

  5. Scollins says:

    Kaitlyn Dever … amazing. Dress and acting. We need to see more of her asap.

  6. Gabby says:

    Well, with the current crop of red carpet dresses all being big, Olivia’s and Kaitlyn’s dresses are both better examples of those. They look floaty and light, rather than drowning-in-dress.
    I like the color of Beanie’s dress but that’s about it, this style looks juvenile. I’d also like to see her hair down.

  7. minx says:

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I like Olivia’s look. Her dress works somehow and the color, which I usually hate, is pretty on her.

  8. Slowsnow says:

    Booksmart is absolutely awesome with a super funny teen-age lesbian love scene and hilarious humour.

  9. ChillyWilly says:

    I’m in love with Kaitlyn Dever’s Valentino. I’m not sure it’s young enough for her but it would be gorgeous on someone a bit older.

    Dear God. Shower curtain meets dust ruffle.

  11. K says:

    I appreciate Olivia Wilde more after directing Booksmart. She really did a great job with it and I hope she continues to direct. It made me a fan of all three of them.
