Olivia Wilde: 'Jason's Sneaker Collection Makes Up a Wall in Our Apartment'

When new mom Olivia Wilde invites people to her house, she says they automatically expect her to be a fashionista.

“Guests always expect me to have too many shoes,” Wilde tells July’s O magazine. But it’s actually her fiancé Jason Sudeikis who has a love affair with footwear. “He’s a sneakerhead with about 200 pairs of Air Jordans. They make up an extraordinarily colorful wall in our apartment.”

Wilde’s other unexpected fashion secret? For all her time spent on the red carpet, you won’t find numerous fancy frocks in her closet. Instead, she’s got an “assortment” of blazers that “rivals Rachel Maddow’s.”

“If you were to peek inside my closet, you’d think I was a newscaster or a politician — I have dozens of blazers,” she says. “I always buy them, thinking they’ll pull together an outfit, but then never wear them.”

The star is no stranger to rocking a jacket on the red carpet. Last month, just 10 days after giving birth to baby Otis, Wilde chose one of the many blazers from her arsenal and wore it alongside Sudeikis at the Ms. Foundation Women of Vision gala.

For more on Wilde’s style, pick up the July issue of O magazine. And tell us: Are you surprised that the star stockpiles blazers?

what is the point of this story?


I need to reevaluate my life as I just wasted time on this article. I guess it sounded so dumb I just had to see what the kicker was. Pardon the pun.

Oh good. They have sneakers. Neat.

Are you losing it, People mag, or is this a flat day in news? Male shoes, sneakers, blasers, depressed elephant, some other deeply unknown persons… and by the way, if its not showbiz news, do not insert who killed who. Jeeez.. that I say

Jenno on

No one needs 200 pairs of any kind of shoes.

Something about a grown man having so many sneakers makes me think that he hasn’t grown up. My husband has three pair and he better not think about getting another pair of sneakers unless he throws one pair away.

Just stunning you are!


Pet peeve – when some says “3 pair” instead of pairs. It’s one pair, and 2 pairs, 3 pairs, etc. Good grief, go back to school Bhavana.
