Pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo has been evolving her style since her debut album “Sour” was released in May of this year. The teen star began her career on the Disney channel’s Bizaardvark and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. It’s not easy to make the transition from Disney to being seen as an adult. It seemed like Rodrigo was using her walk down the red carpet at Academy Museum of Motion Pictures opening Gala to make a statement about how she’s growing up.
The 18-year-old wore a sleek off-the-shoulder dress from Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello, which made the star of the piece Rodrigo’s shoulders and plunging neckline. The gown also featured a thigh high slit, but the best part? It has pockets:
She wore the gown with a pair of strappy open-toe heel and had a loose up-do with wavy long bangs framing her face, which was done in understated make up, except for the bold red lips.
The opening gala was co-chaired by director Ava DuVernay, TV producer Ryan Murphy, and Blumhouse Production’s Jason Blum, and was an opportunity for stars to gather to celebrate the long awaited opening of the Academy Museum, designed by famed architect Renzo Piano. The evening honored Sophia Loren and filmmaker Haile Gerima, and thanked stars who helped raise funds for the building, like Tom Hanks.
Rodrigo’s first single “Drivers License” dropped in January and became a runaway hit on TikTok before solidifying her hold on music with mainstream success. Rodrigo may be young, but she is already thinking about the future and how our current culture treats female pop stars.
“I think it’s really strange how there’s a finite amount of time women can be pop stars, you know what I mean?” she said in an interview with GQ in August. “I feel like men can be making music and having it be successful and popular until you’re super old, but I feel like women, the second you turn 30, it’s hard to keep people’s attention. But hopefully I’ll still be putting out music that I like, and it’ll still resonate with other people. I’ve always wanted to be a songwriter that writes songs for other people too.”
