Olivia Wilde Gives a Lot of Leg and Then Some in a Stunning High-Slit Dress

Few red carpet dresses have caused as much ruckus as Angelina Jolie's famous “leg moment” at the 2012 Oscars. Now, Olivia Wilde is showing us how to do a thigh-high slit the 2024 way: a little less flashy, a little more backless.

Walking the red carpet at the 10th Annual Breakthrough Prize Ceremony at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles, Wilde wore a gown from London-based brand Galvan that seemingly tied together on her left hip. The long-sleeved black crepe dress had a turtleneck and long sleeves, smartly covering much of the writer-actor-director's body, so that the empty space on the side was in sharp contrast. A white silk tie is all that held the piece together (well, it's probably stitched up, but that's the illusion, anyway).

Wilde completed the ensemble with delicate drip earrings, bold eyeliner, red nails, a gold ring and black high-heel sandals.

These face-framing highlights are a great way to lighten up for spring without going blond-blond.

After directing and appearing in 2022's Don't Worry Darling, Wilde has lent her talents to a handful of projects, with more directing and producing lined up for the future. But in the meantime, she's using her platform to speak out on some truly important topics, like when good singers do karaoke.

“It’s not for them. They can go get paid to do that. We in the non-good-singing-community paid to do that,” she said, finally speaking truth to power. No one wants to hear anyone hit all the notes! That's what albums are for. “I’m terrible, but that's the point. I take pride in being booed off. That’s the turnover: next song,” Wilde continued during a candid chat with Subway Takes. “I don't even sing ‘Happy Birthday’ at birthday parties because it will ruin it.” Thank you, Olivia Wilde, for sticking to what you're good at. May we all have such self-awareness.
