Olivia Munn is about as relatable as it gets (next to Prince William, who just said what we’re all thinking sometimes about parenting). First, she mirrored our own reaction to seeing Girl Scout cookies at the Oscars when she posted a pic of her hilariously surprised face on the ‘gram.
Now, she’s easing all of our collective pain about seeing clothes on a model vs. wearing them IRL, proving that even celebs don’t always get it right.
‘Cause gorgeous as she is, Olivia couldn’t quite make this $16,830 Balmain dress work for her.
“I tried this dress on the other day and then saw @jlo wearing it in a magazine and thought, ‘Oh. THAT’S what it’s supposed to look like,’” she wrote.
Oh, girl, we feel you on SO many levels (apart from having $17K to drop on a dress, that is — though in all fairness, it’s entirely possible that it was gifted from the designer).
While JLo rocked the frock for a spread in Harper’s Bazaar, ensuring she had a team of people to make it look good, Olivia appeared to be on her own with a closet and an iPhone (you know, how most of US would be). It just goes to show how our perceptions of clothing (and ourselves!) are not always the most accurate when it comes to real-life wear.
Kudos to Olivia for showing us just that!
