In or Out: Elizabeth Olsen in Chanel

Posted on October 24, 2011

In terms of overexposure, we should be at right the tipping point with this one, but someone’s making smart choices for her picture opportunities. She’s going out in wildly different looks depending on the venue and it’s keeping her fresh, interesting, and irresistible to photographers. Of course being the Girl of the Moment certainly helps.

Do you think her creepy older sisters are sticking pins into a crude doll with a piece of her hair attached right about now? We like to think so.

Oh, we have to say, to whomever’s responsible: Brava. She looks really sweet and romantic but head turning at the same time. And it’s got a little edge to it by not being exactly the shape or having exactly the proportions you would expect from something with such princess-y undertones. The irregular ruffles of the skirt, rendered in a fabric with a subtle pattern to it make the bottom half textural and interesting without looking twee. Admittedly, the top half is pretty shapeless, which seems to be an Olsen family preference, but we dig the shape for being a little unexpected. Hair and makeup look pretty (although the former’s a little flat) and we don’t even mind the neutral shoe because it really works with the overall look.

      In!  I think she looks stunning.

      The hair is somewhat unfortunate with the outfit, and the top makes her look pregnant.  She can actually get away with the color, at least.

      • Sobaika Mirza

        Maybe I’m comparing her to her sisters too much, but the hair could be SO much worse. It’s not frizzy, it looks washed and brushed. She gets an IN from me just for looking different, interesting, and CLEAN.

      IN. I love it.

      Um, out. It just looks sloppy to me.

    • http://twitter.com/jaythenerdkid Aaminah Khan

      Facially, she’s so similar to her sisters – and yet, the same facial features I’ve never found attractive on her sisters look so pretty and dainty on her. Maybe it’s just that her face isn’t quite so skeletal? No idea, really.

      Anyway, the shape of that top is annoying me just enough to make this an OUT. (Also not digging the hair at all.) It’s pretty, but it could have been so much prettier, you know? And when you’re wearing thousands of dollars’ worth of borrowed clothes, I think you can be expected to do better than just okay.

        could be that she’s not wearing a pound of eyeliner and doesn’t look like a raccoon like her sisters always seem to.

        Agreed. I can’t get over how unflattering the top is. It doesn’t seem deliberately unflattering in the way that her sisters do it, it seems like something you would try on for your boyfriend and he would be all, yeah, it’s fine.

      I agree about her hair.  Its lackluster with the rest of her look. Something a bit fuller and more put together looking would help.  But I’ll give her an In.  This is not an ensemble that could be worn well by lots of people, and she pulls it off.

      Shapeless?  Honeys, that top is not shapeless, it’s completely unflattering and ugly.  I love the skirt but the first pic, look at the way the top is pulling across her bust creating wierd little lumps on the sides.  And sorry, the neutral shoe is not good either.  OUT

    • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.parker Sara Parker

      My one quibble is that the cut of the sleeve isn’t just shapeless, it makes her arm look fat.  Which it obviously isn’t.  I like the rest of it, though, so I’m grudgingly giving her an “In.”

    • Heather Kaplin

      I don’t like the shapelessness of the top, but that’s more a comment on the dress than her. I like everything else…

    • http://squirrelsandpearls.wordpress.com/ Kelly

      OUT!  I really like the skirt, but that top is SO unflattering!  She looks like a linebacker in the shoulders and it is doing strange things to her bust.

      I want to say In badly, because it is interesting and different. Still, the proportions are so weird, she looks like she has football pads on, and all the beige matches with her skin tone too well.

      OUT, sadly.

      • Alisa Rivera

        I feel the same way. I can’t give it an In, but she gets points for not doing the standard young starlet look.

      Somehow she and the dress don’t go together, to my mind. It might be the hair, but maybe that bodice is just not flattering. It makes her look short, not well proportioned. If the skirt were a bit shorter and her hair was up, maybe. OUT.

      OUT

      The shapelessness of the top is what makes this an OUT from me…doesn’t suit or complement the skirt, which I rather like.  I also think her hair looks like she just got caught in the rain, and her makeup is way to heavy/severe. 

      Still trying to figure out how all of sudden she became the new “it girl”…I’ve only seen her here.  I know she’s out promoting something that I’m obviously not interested in.  Anyway…I’m not impressed with her fashion sense as of yet.

    • http://twitter.com/ILikeShiny Cindi Williams

      While I’m not the biggest fan of the top, at least it’s not doing weird things to her neck like the previous two outfits we’ve seen on TLo. I’ll give her a quasi-IN.

      Out. The colour suits her, but I hated the light pantyhose and shoes. The color scheme was so “five year old’s Barbie birthday” that a darker shoe with some edge should have been worn to balance it out. Had she chosen a dark shoe, she’d be in.

      I love this look, especially the skirt, which is spectacular.  Love the color on her. She is a really pretty woman, and her makeup is flawless. So an IN from me.

      With two quibbles.

      The top doesn’t fit properly across the bust and under the arms. It doesn’t fit on the model either, so, couture or not, something is wrong with the cut.

      I cannot get behind satin shoes for anything other than proms and bridesmaids–the whole dyed-to-match thing.  I just hate them, but I realize that like the cinder block and horsey hoof shoes that we had to endure for far too long, satin shoes on the street are here to stay. For a very short while, I hope!

Sorry, sweety–you let your sisters influence this one to your detriment.

      The top doesn’t fit her. Notice the pulling at the underarm. It’s too small. Not entirely surprising since it’s borrowed couture, but very surprising because it’s Chanel couture.

      I’ll abstain because I like the look other than that (and other than the center part Olsen issue hair), but the fit issue keeps me from giving it an in.

      When I see the first picture I always predict what TLo and the Bitter Kittens will think, and I missed this by a mile.  I think she looks ridiculous.  Flat spaniel hair, the signature Olsen pouty face, a top that pulls under her armpits, a Halloween ballerina costume skirt, a big tacky ring that adds nothing to the look.  She’s a cute girl and I’m glad to hear that she can act, but I do not feel any love for this outfit.

      And the hair!  I do not get women who go to red carpet events with their hair looking like they just rolled out of bed.  Get a comb, girl.

      Hair is fine, the skirt is cute and almost age appropriate, she’s pulling off the color, but I hate the fit of the blouse. It’s boxy on the model too, but the model had her hair up so you saw some bone structure and were given a good idea of body shape. Here… she’s a peach box with nice lipstick. I can’t help but thinking that MeeMaw would like her Sunday Go To Meeting blouse back. OUT

      The makeup is just creepy–those eyes!  the dress isn’t even remotely flattering. It’s ugly on the runway and even worse on the street. Not to mention being a washed out color that does her no favors.

      Yeah.  Oomph is what is needed here.  This outfit should be given the ERW “On your knees, fool!” treatment.  That would transcend the bunching and flattening and blah hair and bridesmaid shoes.

Hmmm…. recognition of her sisters’ problems, or subtle dig at them? We may never know.

      I dunno. The skirt is just adorable on her: flirty and young and so on, but the top just exerts a dampening field that pulls the whole look down for me. How much prettier this would have been if the top were a little more fitted: as it is, she looks overwhelmed by it. Must be those Olsen genes that order the girls to imitate that ineffable combination of the Beales at Grey Gardens and a Palm Beach matron at a 1955 charity event. And I wish she had gone with different shoes just to ad a spark of color, but so be it.

      But I’d call it In.

      I think this is VERY much in the Olsen family wheelhouse though. She doesn’t look as waifish because she’s not stick skinny, not because the clothes have so much more shape. She may be getting drawn in – but since I kind of like how they dress it’s o.k. by me.

      This dress is exactly what I’d like to see as a future Project Runway challenge. There’s a collaborative
      artist technique called the “Exquisite Corpse”. Basically several artists would get together and fold a piece of paper one or more times. Each artists would get to draw in a folded section. The only thing they know about the what others have done is where their draw lines ended on the edge of the paper fold. In the PR version, 2 person teams, one designer would get the top, and one designer would get the bottom. The only thing they could collaborate on together is choosing the fabrics at Mood. The designers would see the entire outfit for the first time during the final adjustments right before the runway.

      In Elizabeth’s case, I really love the skirt and the ruffles are GORGEOUS! However, the top looks like a plain t shirt made in a very expensive fabric. I also don’t like the overall shape or the silly putty colour. For me it’s an **Out**,  albeit a very interesting one.

      OUT. I do give her credit for going in a different way but the color’s blah and the whole effect is kind of shapeless and sloppy. But she is an interesting addition to the red carpet.

      I think that half of the problem is her (lack of) posing.  This is an outfit designed for movement, and to have her standing there so flatly doesn’t do it justice.  I would die for that skirt.  IN

      I always want to give her an in just because she doesn’t look depressed like her sisters.  But this is just ugly, and her hair limp enough to be Mary Kate’s.  I hope she isn’t taking groom tips from those two.  The Amish ballerina is OUT!

      IN!! I love her fashion choices, and she’s so much fresher and young-looking than her sisters, even if they’re not far apart in age. I also really dig her hair here, for some reason. It just seems to work.

      Half Hearted IN…I think it looks good from the neck down.  The make up and hair are too much MK/Ashley and I liked that she didn’t look like them in her previous entries.

      I was on the fence, but ultimately… OUT.

      I cannot give an “in” to someone who, with access to professional stylists and makeup artists, personal chefs and trainers, and every good treatment a top-flight spa can provide, goes out the door looking like she’s ten or twenty years older than she really is.

      She’s not even twenty-three. That makeup and hair are doing her no favors at all. The dress would work great if her face looked fresh and young, but as it is, the top goes a little matronly.

      She looks better than her dowager sisters, but she’s still carrying the Olsen Curse.

      In! Admittedly I’m responding on a more cerebral level than emotional level because I love the ideas that went into the outfit way more than the visual appeal. No, it’s not the most flattering outfit to the female form, but she looks comfortable and confident in it so it works.

      God I love that skirt! And I’m not even a ruffly, flouncy kind of gal.

        I reread TLo’s comments looking for a ;) or a j/k….nope, nothing.  I honestly don’t see what 1/2 the people here see to justify giving it an IN.  It is a pretty obvious OUT imo….it is hideous and she looks like she’s melting, and I’m not jesting.

      In. I don’t get it. There’s nothing about this I should like: shapeless, colorless, and somewhat ill-fitting at the top, poofy and feather-duster-y at the bottom. Plus a hip cumberbund. Yet somehow I think she looks lovely and interesting. Go figure.

      She’s cute, though the top seems to be tight across her chest.  I keep looking at pics of her and can help think that she’s the cute Olsen.  And she looks surprisingly approachable, unlike her 70 year-old socialite older sisters

      OUT! She looks shapeless and boring. The proportions of the outfit make it look like she is wearing her skirt lower than it needs to be. I don’t even think the dress works on the model.

      In!  She looks very pretty (I still say much prettier than her Bratz-doll bobbleheaded sisters).  The bustline/underarm area of that top is really strange–looks like it’s pulling, but it looks like that on the model too so she doesn’t lose points LOL.

      It’s very Olsen-y without being butt-ugly so I guess that’s an IN.

      Not even the model can work this look.  OUT.  But I think part of the reason I’ve been hating her outfits so much though is that she doesn’t even TRY to sell them.  She’s just standing there like a limp marionette.  She needs to learn how to work her clothes better, especially if she’s going to keep wearing things that completely obliterate her natural shape.

    • elzatelzabelz

      In- Finally an Olsen that can actually dress interesting in colors! I think the dress would be so much better shorter, but overall, it’s pulled together. So, Olsen grading scale-pass!

      While it is a good thing to experiment with proportion, this was not a successful experiment.  It kind of makes her look like a jellyfish – bulky on top and wispy on the bottom.  Her chest also looks smushed, like her bra doesn’t fit right.  I can tell she’s trying, but this still gets an OUT from me.

    • http://twitter.com/UnderTheDark Andrea B

      The top is VERY ill-fitting… it’s too tight right under the arms, you can see where it’s crushing and creasing her (for an Olsen) bounteous rack. In fact, the whole construction of the top of the dress is very matronly. OUT

      I can’t give her an in – the top is too tight across the bust – look at the pulling just above the bustline, and under the arms. Otherwise this could be a great youthful fun look. LOVE the skirt… but she’s OUT for now.

    • http://www.wordydoodles.com WordyDoodles

      Because we have seen potential for more, I’m gonna give this one an OUT.
      I liked how this was styled for the model, with those awesome black patent flats (I can’t think of another context in which those would be worn this well) and with the black choker (unless I’m mistaking her neck shadow for a choker). Liz could have used both those pieces along with the pink eyeshadow and a ever-so-slightly shorter hem on the shirt– and *then* we could call this princess with an edge. IMHO!
