Little sister, huge talent. The younger Olsen finds her own spot in the style world.
Move over, Mary-Kate and Ashley—there’s a new Olsen sister in town. Indie actress Elizabeth “Lizzie” Olsen has only recently appeared on the big screen. Starting out as a child actress taking on small roles in her sisters films (Mary Kate and Ashley… you may have heard of them), Lizzie has come a long way since The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley. The 22 year old has earned some serious accolades for her breakout performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene, as well as for her standout style. Although often seen wearing Elizabeth + James (her sisters named their label after her and her twin brother), in terms of personal style Lizzie differentiates herself from her A-list sisters’ boho/hobo (opinions differ…) look.
On the red carpet she favors Chanel couture, unexpected shapes, and fairly conservative cuts—the plunging necklines and thigh-high slits of other starlets are refreshingly absent. As one of Karl Lagerfeld’s new muses, the stunner is well on her way to fashion icon status.
Pretty as her red carpet looks are, it’s in her casual looks and on the street where Olsen’s personal style really shines. Her hair and make up choices are usually natural, giving her a fresh and youthful charm. Olsen has seemingly effortlessly mastered a preppy meets bohemian meets classic style with a bit of retro flair.
Her favorite place to shop: Wasteland
