Don’t worry Olivia!

Model and actress Olivia Wilde nearly had a spill as she was walking down the red carpet in a Valentino green dress at the 70th San Sebastian International Film Festival in Spain for the premiere of her film “Don’t Worry Darling” at the Victoria Eugenia Theatre on Friday.

Wilde, 38, strutted down to red carpet in her sleeveless fall 2022 couture dress as adoring fans and snapping cameras couldn’t take their eyes or lenses off the actress.

But, the long train of her gown got caught on her towering Gianvito Rossi Metallic 100mm dazzling green leather pumps, nearly causing her to fall face-first towards the ground.

Fortunately, she was able to catch herself from taking a nasty tumble and an assistant quickly came to her aid to untangle the mess.

Wilde was all smiles as usual as she waited to be untangled.

Wilde, who directed the psychological thriller “Don’t Worry Darling,” also plays the role of Bunny, best friend to housewife Alice Chambers, who is played by Florence Pugh.

The film tells the story of a utopian community through the eyes of Alice after her husband Jack, played by Harry Styles, moves them there to be with members of his new company.

As Alice starts to learn more about the new community she was thrown into, she begins to worry Jack and his company are hiding sinister secrets, which has her question everything.

The film also stars Chris Pine, Gemma Chan, Nick Kroll, Douglas Smith, KiKi Layne, Sydney Chandler and Dita Von Teese. 

Earlier this month at the Venice Film Festival, Wilde did her best to remain cool, calm, and collective after facing a backlash of controversy stemming from the cast of “Don’t Worry Darling.”

Wilde, who has been dating Styles, 28, was at the festival to promote the film and was accompanied by all the major cast members of the thriller, with the exception of one crucial actress, Pugh.

Pugh, 26, skipped the press conference in Italy, claiming her flight would land too late for her to participate with the rest of the cast at the presser.

During the screening of the film in Italy, Pugh seemed to keep her distance from Wilde while on the red carpet.

Wilde has also been at the center of other controversies in recent months. Most notably, when she was served with custody court papers by ex-husband and Ted Lasso star Jason Sudeikis while on stage in the midst of a speech.
