Olivia Munn Explains Complex Way of Choosing Her Oscars 2016 Dress, Was Told to Be “Open”

For some stars, acquiring an Oscar dress is no easy task.

Olivia Munn, who is presenting an award at Sunday’s ceremony, opened up to E! News’ Sibley Scoles about how she will go about picking the perfect look for the big day…and she may end up doing so at the last moment.

“I’ve been told that no matter what we like, even if we love it, we have to stay open to dresses getting released like the day before because there might be designers who have an exclusive with a certain actress,” she said. “And then they’re trying on everything and then they decide they don’t want this dress or that dress, which by the way, like…if it doesn’t work on this person…it’s still super high end couture.”

“So you have to just be open to anything that happens, which means you have to have a really great glam team around you, so that they can like change and do whatever they need to do to fit the dress in the moment,” she added.

The 35-year-old The Newsroom alum and X-Men: Apocalypse star made her comments Tuesday at the Vanity Fair and Fiat Young Hollywood Celebration at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood. She attended the event with boyfriend and NFL star Aaron Rodgers. The two have been together since at least spring 2014.

This will mark Munn’s first onstage appearance at an Oscars ceremony and second time attending. At the 2013 Oscars, the actress walked the red carpet in a red, strapless, satin Marchesa Fall 2013 gown with a gold embellished bodice. She later changed into a pale pink, strappy, embellished Versace Atelier Couture Fall 2012 gown for the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party.
