Olivia Munn’s Self-Induced “Who Wore It Better” Moment Will Make You LOL
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!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
