Girl Crush: Olivia Wilde

I recently read that Olivia Wilde believes that audiences dislike her character on House because she had a gay scene. I can't believe that such a thing would actually be considered an issue, but it's quite possible all at the same time. Then again wasn't it a lesbian relationship that offered her a name in season two of The O.C.? If she wasn't approaching her 6th wedding anniversary (PS her husband is an Italian "prince") I'd think Olivia was trying to walk in Ellen's chucks. Either way, I think she's great, and have a total girl crush on her... I have ever since I was introduced to that purple-streaked hair vixen on The O.C. "Uh-huh.. It was fun. Dude.. It was just a kiss.. It is just a kiss, Right Mandy?"

There is nothing about this photo that I do not like; her perfectly arched brows, dark hair, the maroon suede boots, crocheted dress, all of which I would like to own. I suppose I should take this time to define what constitute as a "Girl Crush." In general it's a feeling of awe or admiration for another girl, that is not limited to feelings of lust (but could certainly be included). With the possible desire to not necessarily be 'her,' but to be like 'her,' with a side of idolizing. The following are photos of some of my favoured Olivia Wilde looks:

Looking regal in Reem Acra at the 2008 Emmy Awards.

I have a thing for black and white stripes with a simple, mini, black bottom. Very Parisian inspired.


Reem Acra loves her and vice versa. I've already commented on this look, but it is still worth mentioning a second time, and let's face it- it's a girl crush, clearly I'm going to gush as much as I want.

I love that look, the 60s inspired thick eyeliner, slight pouf and icy-pale lip. If only I could pull off as well as Ms Wilde does. She has some serious angles to her face, eyebrows, cheekbones and jawline, and I've appreciated her rebillious characters (see what I did there?), even as one of the stoner-sluts (with fellow OC alum Autumn Reeser) begging to hang with the creeptastic porn-directing Timothy Olyphant in The Girl Next Door, if that doesn't scream Girl Crush, I don't know what does.

You can watch an interview of Olivia Wilde by her husband Tao Ruspoli, here.

  3. She actually appeared in many (and sorry for the slight delay, I need to figure out how to get notified when I receive comments, instead of just stumbling onto them randomly), her first appearance that I can recall was in season 2 episode 4- Seth attempts to set her up with Ryan on a double date.
    She's also in the following episode, the SnO.C.
    I'm pretty sure she appears in every episode after that up until episode 16.

  9. Lol@ all the Foreman bashing!
    That's awesome that an actor can help you discover a piece of yourself.
    Yeah, beyond her beautiful face, I just really like her as a person; I love that she's a lot smarter than you'd expect for a girl so stunning, and she carries herself so well-- Incredibly confident.
    I loved her face in Year One, the makeup was great for her features also.

    And thanks for all the compliments! Im glad ppl enjoy it!
