Birthday girl Olivia Wilde is undoubtedly one of our favorite 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.
