Film star Olivia Wilde (40) ventured onto the Breakthrough Prize red carpet in a high-necked, long-sleeved, floor-length black dress with a dangerously high slit. The cut not only revealed a lot of skin on the legs, but also the transition to the lower back. Because on one side the garment was only held together by a long white bow.

The actress, director and producer combined black strappy heels. And as a strong contrast, blood red nail polish. When it came to the subtle make-up, the American-Irish artist only emphasized the eye area with blue eyeliner. Her caramel-colored hair was styled in soft waves.

The glittering event, held at the Academy Museum in Los Angeles, will honor those who have achieved greatness in the fields of mathematics and science, with each honoree receiving $3 million, according to a press release.

Despite the fact that the focus isn’t on showbiz, the swanky gala reliably attracts a number of A-list celebrities every year to walk the red carpet and present the awards. In addition to Olivia Wilde, this time there were also Margot Robbie (33), Jessica Chastain (47), Brie Larson (34), Glenn Close (77), Michelle Yeoh (61), Lizzo (35), Kim Kardashian (43), Robert Downey Jr (59), Adam Levine (45) and his supermodel wife Behati Prinsloo (35) as well as Katy Perry (39) and her partner Orlando Bloom (47) at the ceremony.

The big business tycoons were also among the celebrities, such as Elon Musk (52), who posed for the photographers, or Bill Gates (68), who came with his girlfriend Paula Hurd.
