Confession: I am constantly getting Olivia Munn confused with both Olivia Wilde (same name) and Aubrey Plaza (similar face). She’s certainly not the first celeb I’ve had trouble keeping track of for whatever reason, but after some extensive Googling and looking through a ton of photos of her amazing street style outfits, I might finally have carved out a specific spot in my brain for Ms. Munn. Click through to check out some examples of her memorable fashion sense in action!
Yes, Olivia Munn, YES. This is how you style a striped, summer-y midi dress for cooler temps. I am loving how her stacked heel boots and bad ass green leather jacket give the look an edgy, tough vibe. Like, during summer with flip-flops, this dress is all, Oh hey I’m easy breezy, just chillin’ on the lanai with a glass of pinot grigio, but during winter, it’s all, Get to steppin’, I’ve got a hot toddy to drink, it’s cold out. Or something. Anyway, steal Olivia’s style, after the jump!

Mixing prints can be kind of confusing and intimidating, but here’s Olivia Munn modeling a great example of a combo that works: striped top + printed skirt. Why does this work so well? The colors aren’t too busy or overpowering (just black and white on top, and mostly orange on the bottom), and the size of the stripes and print is similar (thin stripes and small print). Definitely going to try to translate this simple fashion lesson to my own wardrobe. Thanks, Olivia! [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
If you were worried about how Julianne Hough was doing since the end of her contractual relationship with Ryan Seacrest ended, well, worry no more. By all accounts, she seems to be coming through this faux-lationship swimmingly. Here she is, out with much-more-garishly-dressed Olivia Munn for a girl’s date at the nail salon. Julianne is in a subdued turquoise while Olivia opts for a bright, bold, be-patterned maxi dress. But hey, she can pull it off. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Olivia Munn wore this graphic Peter Pilotto dress to the International Women’s Media Foundation’s 2012 Courage in Journalism Awards. I kind of like it, but I don’t know, the sleeves seem a bit unnecessary and clunky. Plus, I’d take it up a couple inches, too. What do you think?
f you’re a “My Life on the D-List” fan like myself, you probably had your first experience with trichotillomania on that series. Tom, Kathy Griffin’s tour manager, compulsively pulled his eyelashes out. Now, a few years later, Olivia Munn has admitted that she, too, goes for the lashes to deal with whatever’s bothering her. She went on to admit that whenever she leaves the house, she has to buy a new set of falsies at the drugstore. She claims her habit is more annoying than it is painful and says that moving around a lot as a kid — Air Force brat and all — gave her anxiety that’s evidently manifested itself in this disorder.

Olivia Munn was spotted leaving JFK airport with her man piece Joel Kinnaman yesterday, presumably on their way to someplace where totally beautiful people hang out. Munn’s red carpet style is usually totally sub par, if you ask me, but she seems to have casual down. We love the bright red-yellow purse/sweater combo, and the sunglasses are a totally classic shape. After the jump, let us show you how to get Olivia’s airport-ready look. Sadly we’ve got no clue how to get a Joel Kinnaman of your own, though. Keep reading »
“With ‘The Daily Show,’ I felt like [people criticizing her] were only satisfied when everyone fit into a certain box. “Pretty and stupid” — one box. “Smart and funny” — another box. I believe they fit into this other box, which is, ‘hates women who are pretty and smart and funny.’
The only thing I can do is look at the people who have supported me. Tina Fey is the one who recommended me to the creators of [Munn’s short-lived sitcom] ‘Perfect Couples’ on NBC, and she wasn’t thinking about my breasts. And Jon Stewart would not jeopardize his show to cast some girl based on her looks. I think a lot of women should realize that when we’re putting each other down, you’re putting the same glass ceiling over you that you are on me. The only difference is that I will find a way to go around that. I refuse to live in a world where somebody’s gonna tell me who I am.”
– Olivia Munn addresses that long-ago criticism of her appointment to “The Daily Show,” which rankled some ladybloggers, including me. At the time, what bothered me was that of all the funny women in all the land that Jon Stewart could have cast on his show, he chose a funny lady who was also young and beautiful who had also taken her clothes off a lot in magazines. It seemed … annoying. I don’t believe I personally was trying to put her in a box, just that I felt annoyed by how she wasn’t owning up to using her sexuality to get ahead — which is fine, just own up to it. In retrospect, it seems like criticizing her personally may have done more harm than good. She makes good points here and actually sounds pretty rad. So, I’m sorry, Olivia. (Not that you care what I think, but hey.) [NY Post]
“I know I’ve done Maxim. I give candid interviews. I know there are women who don’t like me, but that’s their problem. You can be smart and beautiful and embrace your sexuality and still have that not be all you are. And you know what? You should root for me, because I’m not the girl who will fuck your boyfriend.”
– Okay, Olivia Munn, thanks for not fucking our boyfriends! [NYMag.com]
Just the other day, we were talking about celebs we love so much that we’re afraid to meet them because we would, like, die of embarrassment and love and obsession all at once. Julie calls this I Love You So Much I Want To Squeeze You To Death. (Mine are Kate Winslet and Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20. Don’t judge.) On today’s “Ellen,” Olivia Munn got to meet her I Love You So Much I Want To Squeeze You To Death celeb … and it’s Ellen Degeneres. There’s squealing. There’s shrieking. There’s a weird crouching-butt-squeeze hug. And there’s a date to go kayaking and see Olivia’s new movie, “Magic Mike,” together. Is it just me or does Ellen genuinely look freaked out? [Ellen]
