Olivia Wilde is back on Instagram, back from a girl’s vacation and at the People’s Choice Awards in Santa Monica on Tuesday evening. The actress and filmmaker took a hiatus from the limelight last month, understandably, after she and Harry Styles split. Now her return to the spotlight has been accompanied by a stunning appearance in Dior. It begs the question: is this Wilde’s revenge dress?
Wilde looked stunning in a sheer lace gown from the Dior Resort 2023 collection and styled by Karla Welch as seen on the runway with a large leather belt and cheeky panties. The star’s look was finished with undone waves, a flawless base and bold black eyeliner.
The revenge dress was famously coined when Princess Diana stepped out at an official event in a risqué off-the-shoulder gown following reports Prince Charles had an affair. While we’ve seen many iterations of the revenge dress of late — Julia Fox walked the runway in LaQuan Smith following her split from Kanye West earlier this year — we can’t help but imagine that Wilde arrived at the awards ceremony to turn heads.
Revenge is probably a strong word however, given reports that Wilde and Style split amicably and simply referred it as a “break.” No revenge needed, let’s call it a thirst trap. Has anyone checked on Harry?
Wilde won the award for Best Drama Movie for Don’t Worry Darling. If you haven’t seen it already, you absolutely should. Despite recent successes the film was the centre of plenty of controversy prior to its release. All the more reason to find your nearest cinema!
