Olivia Wilde stepped onto the red carpet of the Tribeca Film Festival’s screening of “The Five Year Engagement” with a great, big wildcat roar – and a new blonde ‘do. But don’t be distracted by her wildly print maxi-dress or her newly lightened locks! I have to say Olivia’s Jimmy Choo clutch saved her savage-chic look from looking too feral.
A structured and hard-shelled accessory, like this mirror-slick, paneled clutch, is the only piece that could ground Yigal Azrouël’s long, busy dress, (out of his Pre-Fall 2012 collection) giving it a sense of focus and purpose. Gold Ippolita hoops finished the look, for a glamorous nod to summer escapades.
Perform a lighter variation of Olivia’s outfit with the abstract-print, silk-crepe Tux maxi-dress by A.L.C. (on Net-a-Porter for $795), a similar color palette without a literal animal pattern, or go all out in color with Jay Godfrey‘s leopard-print Tello dress (at Bergdorf Goodman for $475).
Cop her style directly with Jimmy Choo’s highly polished Sweetie clutch in rust, for warm neutrality, or in nude petrol acrylic, for creamy texture (both at Saks Fifth Avenue for $750).
