Olivia Wilde is so drop-dead gorgeous, she’d look amazing even if she shaved her head. But recently she’s been rocking stick-straight strands and thick bangs, and we’re completely in love with her lock look. In fact, we think she may be starting a major Fall 2011 hair trend, and luckily, it’s easy to recreate a similar style at home. When we spotted the beautiful starlet at the red carpet premiere of her latest flick, The Change Up, held at the Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles on Monday August 1st, we stopped dead in our fashionable tracks to drool over her gorgeous dress and hair. Keep reading for more details about her amazing red carpet look – and learn how to achieve a similarly straight mane, once the weather cools.
Before we can dish our best stay-straight hair secrets, we need to take a moment to drool over Olivia’s drool-worthy dress and heels. She opted for a red-hot, structured Antonio Berardi frock, straight from his Pre-Fall 2011 runway show. The dress featured flattering strong shoulders and adorable pockets, and we think a similar shift style would be equally flattering on a wide range of shapes and sizes. This fall, look for crimson and scarlet colored dresses with unique details like ruffles or pockets, and make it your new statement dress. You’ll reach for your new red frock all year long, so treat it like the little black dress of 2011! Olivia also complimented her Antonio Berardi creation with a pair of amazing Brian Atwood satin platforms in a matching red hue for a major punch of bright color.
Olivia’s hair might look like a simple blow out, but achieving locks that sleek requires more than just your average hair dryer. To recreate a similar style this fall, start in the shower with specially formulated smoothing shampoo and conditioner to smooth each strand. After completely dry, flatten each section with a ceramic straightening iron to prevent heat damage. Finish with a few spritzes of shine-enhancing spray to make hair look glossy without weighting it down for star-approved locks all fall!
