She paired the tailored crimson pieces with a brighter, poppy-colored blouse
It may be mid-May, a time that’s normally full of floaty skirts and floral dresses, but leave it to Olivia Wilde and her stylist Karla Welch to not get caught up in such minor seasonal details. On Monday, the actress attended a screening of “Booksmart,” a film she directed, in a decidedly un-springy corduroy suit.
With wide-leg trousers and rhinestone detailing at the lapels and pockets, the crimson-colored Dundas suit — reminiscent of the sexy tailored looks Tom Ford designed for Gucci in the ’90s — would have made plenty of impact on its own. However, Wilde and Welch went full-on fashion flex by pairing it with a brighter, poppy-colored silk blouse (also by Dundas). The overall effect was monochrome, but in an ever-so-slightly-clashing way. In other words, exactly as cool of a styling move as we’ve come to expect from Welch.
To lend a bit of contrast to all of that tailoring, Wilde went classically feminine with her beauty look, wearing her hair in loose waves with a deep, side-swept part (by hairstylist Mara Roszak) and sharp, exaggerated cat eyes (by makeup artist Mélanie Inglessis).
Also in attendance to support Wilde was Jason Sudeikis, who showed up in a blue ombré sweater and a jaunty newsboy hat. It’s distinguished and a little weird, and it serves as a pretty perfect foil to Wilde’s rich jewel-tone ensemble.
