EMILY PRESCOTT: How Olivia shows she’s wilde about Harry’s styles
Actress Olivia Wilde proved her worth as the ultimate fan girl when she wore a £100 sky blue crew-neck from boyfriend Harry Styles’s gender-neutral beauty line, Pleasing, out in North London last week.
The pair bonded in late 2020 when he was filming the psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling – which she was directing.
At the time, Wilde, 38, was still the fiancee of American comedian Jason Sudeikis, 46, to whom she became engaged in 2013, and with whom she has a son, Otis, seven, and a daughter, Daisy, five.

Olivia confessed she had hoped to assign Styles, 28, a major role ever since seeing his film debut in Dunkirk five years ago.
Now their artistic and personal chemistry appears to be beyond her, er, wildest dreams.
‘I’m happier than I’ve ever been,’ she recently reflected.
‘It doesn’t matter what strangers think about you. All that matters to you is what’s real, and what you love, and who you love.’
If that means wearing a 100 per cent cotton sweater – half recycled, half ‘organic yarn’ – embellished with a reclining frog, then so be it.

Jude’s little helpers
Jude Law may be in need of some expert help to navigate rambling, 900-year-old Haddon Hall as he films new movie Firebrand, in which he plays Henry VIII.
The hall is home to the Duke of Rutland’s brother, Lord Edward Manners, and his wife Gabrielle.
Now my movie mole tells me their twin sons, Alfred and Vesey, could well take mini-roles alongside Jude, right – as they probably know Haddon’s labyrinthine passages better than anyone.
‘I’m worried I might lose them behind a tapestry or down a tunnel,’ reflected their mother soon after they moved in.
Her solution? ‘I’m going to put GPS on them.’
How about this for a sweet idea from national treasure Stephen Fry.
At the launch of film director Paul Feig’s Artingstall Gin range at Isabel’s in Mayfair, he told me that he’s had ‘unpleasant’ experiences with friends getting aggressive after drinking whisky.
Maybe we should look to the Netherlands, he said, where cannabis is legal and as a result there’s less violence after football matches.
‘Someone should create some exquisite brownies,’ he mused.
