It's Paris Fashion Week, which means that all of the most well-dressed people, well, anywhere are dressed even better than usual on the streets of the French fashion capital. And luckily for everyone not there, swarms of photographers are located all around the city snapping up every last perfectly put-together outfit for us to digitally tack onto our wardrobe mood boards for future use.

One such ensemble was just worn by Olivia Wilde, who rocked up to the Dior show today in almost head-to-toe Saint Laurent, including super wide-leg jeans and a tailored blazer made of fashion month's most prevalent material: velvet. With the duo, she added platform boots, cat-eye sunglasses, and one of Saint Laurent's latest It bags, the ES Giant Travel bag. But still, it's her velvet outerwear that stuck out most. 

Already spotted at Sportmax, Roberto Cavalli, Gucci, and Alberta Ferretti, velvet is more than making the rounds. Ahead of its full-on revival, shop Wilde's take on the trend and more velvet pieces below.
