Birthday girl Olivia Wilde is undoubtedly one of our favourite style-setters — the actress, producer, and philanthropist isn't one to shy away from dramatic dresses on the red carpet (remember the stunning Marchesa gown she wore to the 2011 Golden Globes?) — but she also seems to have a soft spot for the classic, quintessential black dress. When it comes to dressing up, Olivia isn't afraid to take risks with cut-outs, open backs, or shorter hemlines, but she looks just as comfortable keeping things sleek and sophisticated in a full-length gown or ladylike pencil dress. In honour of Olivia's 29th birthday yesterday, we're celebrating with a look at her captivating and not-so-basic black dress looks over the years; click through to see them all now!
