Get The Look: Olivia Wilde In Basic Black At The Academy Awards

PUBLISHED ON 03/03/2014

You know who does basics better than any mama-to-be? Olivia Wilde. (Remember the green ensemble she wore to the Golden Globes? I cannot and will not ever forget the butterflies, y'all.) The gorgeous star, who's expecting her first child with beau Jason Sudeikis on May 4th,  chose a simple black mock-necked frock for the Oscars last night — and the best part was that the gown came with it's own peek-a-boo white train.

It was a simple choice, played up with jewelry, a swept-back hairstyle, her signature sultry cat-eye, a peachy-nude lip and white drop earrings, but damn, was it memorable! And, if I'm being honest, she just looked so luxurious and laid-back that it was all I could do not to hug her through my TV.

Here's a peek in case you missed it last night:

There was no slit, no side-leg, no peek at her (probably equally gorgeous) pumps. Instead, the look was elegant, natural and so, so very classic. For a mama-to-be who's just about three months shy of her due date, Olivia didn't show the slightest ache or pain toting around a growing bump in heels all night long.

And just to prove that Olivia's no-fuss look is one we could all mimic, here's the how-to:

FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: Maternity LOFT Beach Crossover Halter Maxi Dress, $95; Lulu Townsend Leopard Glitter Minaudiere Clutch, $40; ALDO Ireland Clutch, $35; Kendra Scott 'Skylar Spear' Statement Earrings, $65; BAUBLEBAR Snow Crystal Drops, $36

What's your favorite way to accessorize your bump?
