Olivia Wilde Explains Why She Chose Her Golden Globe Gown

Yahoo Celebrity


Olivia Wilde glowed at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night, not only because she's a mommy-to-be, but also because of the stunning sequined emerald-green Gucci gown she wore.

The dress, which accentuated her pregnancy in the best possible way, was different from the traditional maternity dresses that are often seen on the red carpet. But it turns out this 29-year-old knew just what she wanted when it came to her Globes ensemble.

"Until about a week ago, I just looked fat!" the actress, who is expecting her first child with actor Jason Sudeikis, told People magazine. "I wanted to be like, 'I'm not fat, I'm pregnant!'"

Well, if she was trying to make a statement, she certainly did!

That wasn't all she said about her gown of choice. She also tweeted some clever retorts to some not-so-sweet statements that were made about her dress.

"Hahaaaa I just heard someone say I looked like a giant, walking pickle last night at the Globes. As a pickle enthusiast, I thank you," she tweeted.

While Olivia knew how to rock the red carpet, her fellow mom-to-be entertainers went for a more traditional look.

"Scandal" star Kerry Washington glowed in her white silhouette-shape Balenciaga gown, and Drew Barrymore went for a very feminine and traditional Monique Lhuillier dress.
