In or Out: Elizabeth Olsen in Preen & Helmut Lang

Posted on October 20, 2011

We’ve secretly replaced your regular Olsen with the new Elizabeth Olsen with flavor crystals! Let’s see if anyone notices.

Elizabeth Olsen in Preen and Helmut LangElizabeth Olsen attends screening of “Martha Marcy May Marlene” during 34th Annual Mill Valley Film Festival in top and skirt by Preen, Jacket by Helmut Lang, and shoes by Chloe.

Elizabeth Olsen in Preen and Helmut Lang

Look at that sporty little Olsen! Look at that Olsen mixing and matching pieces to great effect! Look at those Olsen feet sporting those cute little oxfords! In case you can’t tell, we think she looks great. Mostly. Love the jacket, skirt and shoes. We’re thinking that high-collared blouse is just a bit too high-collared, an effect only worsened by the heavy necklace. But that’s not the worst mistake in the world. Judging by the background folks, it was a chilly night in Mill Valley. And besides, the overall effect is so cute, youthful, and put-together that we can’t really spend much time focusing on the one weak point. Love this look.

 

Vote Now!
IN! I didn’t know an Olsen could be so perky!

OUT! I like my Olsens looking like 80-year-old socialites, thank you very much.

 

The minions argued the merits of Jessica Alba’s droopy boob shirt, but ultimately the vote came down to OUT. No such arguing when it came to Madeleine Stowe lingerie look. The Victoria Grayson fans rose up as one and shouted I AM GOING TO DESTROY YOU!” to anyone who dared to even think of voting her out, leaving the final tally a firm IN.

    I think the proportions are weird, so it’s an out for me.

      I agree about the proportions… I think it would be better if that jacket was a tad shorter on her. Overall very cute though! IN

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DJQMGJU7MZMBVLSD4GUTPJEPD4 murt

        Ya completely agree – the proportions are weird and make her look older than she is. That’s been the case with everything she’s been wearing.

      That neckline is choking me.

      Same thing with the last time TLo featured her: is she hiding a goiter?

      It also makes her head appear to be floating over her outfit like a balloon.

        Maybe the Olsens are genetically programmed to hide their necks.

  • Anonymous

    While I vastly prefer the Olson 2.0 model I think this look needs a more tailored jacket. Also the shirt is a bit bulky fo my taste.

      Yeah, that shirt is hanging in weird folds and I don’t like that jacket with it. Almost, but Out.

    Oh, you guys are just too funny. Whenever I feel bad about being older than the average Bitter Kitten, you throw out a cultural reference that actually makes me feel hip!

    I raise my glass of morning coffee to you (sans Taster’s Choice flavor crystals, thank goodness)!

    The Olsen child is cute and age-appropriate and best of all, not a twin.

      Don’t worry; you are not alone. There are a few of us here who have left the Kitten years behind and are firmly Bitter Cats.

          I had forgotten that series of commercials with Anthony Head! I guess it turned out OK because he ended up with Buffy.

          I am so impressed with the knowledge in the commentariat. Yes, Folger’s it was, not Taster’s Choice.

        I still die laughing over the SNL spoof of the Folgers commercials, where they secretly replaced blood and IV fluid in a hospital with Folgers crystals. I will say that I vaguely remember being way too young to be allowed to watch the show or stay up that late.

      Actually, the coffee switch was Folger’s Crystals, which makes it even more delicious since Folger’s once had a figurehead named Mrs. Olsen.

        Mostly agree. I like the individual pieces, but they’re not working together. And I don’t like the color of the shoes. But at least she dresses like a young woman instead of a dowager. The slightest of OUTs.

    I’m not crazy about the skirt or the top, but I love the jacket. What the heck, it’s an IN just because it’s nice to see an Olsen who does not look like a homeless person.

  • http://twitter.com/LianaBrooks Liana Brooks

    Hate the shoes. Like the skirt. Ambivalent on the top. It’s a better look than Olsons usually pull together but it still feels slightly old, especially with the funky Christmas tree tinsel necklace/scarf thing.  Overall, an improvement but still an OUT.

    IN, but the neck is an issue. Especially because this is the second time in a row she’s done that to herself, remember her in that Alexander McQueen?

  • http://profiles.google.com/trashilove { edi } ilovetrash

    the jacket’s great, the necklace for some reason looks like she took a glitter pen & wrote in great, bold strikes all around her neck. the skirt should never have been made, i had almost identical shoes c1980. i do prefer my olsons looking like eighty year old socialites cos then they look like nobody else but one another & when they look like that, they look like theyve developed a secret twin language that no one can decipher but themselves. & maybe they have. i’m always all for creativity, sometimes especially in the face of perkiness.

    The proportions look weird to me pretty much all ’round, but they’re all good pieces and she looks pulled-together.  In.

    Sorry, guys, not with you on this one. Hate the Oxfords, and think all of the pieces don’t match to great effect. Great pieces, though, that I agree with. And that collar and necklace – so not working. Out.

  • Anonymous

    Sorry, but I don’t see youthful. She still looks 35 to me, which isn’t old but is 15+ years more than her actual age. She also looks like she’s on her way to work at the library or as a file clerk.

    Still, that makes her look stunning compared to her sisters, Bag Lady and Crazy Cat Lady Olsen.

      I was wondering if I was the only one who felt that way! I mean, she doesn’t look 80, but to me she looks 40. OUT.

        You’re not the only one (or two) who thinks this is kind of a mess.  Most of the parts are fine, but the sum of those parts is kind of a mess.  I hate hate hate that blouse and it’s strangling collar, and that necklace just makes her look old, and not in a good way.  I give her points for not looking insane like her sisters, but that doesn’t add up to something I want to validate.  OUT!

          OUT. The parts work, but put together it’s a hot mess.

      I agree.  I feel like a lot of the time, she actually looks OLDER than the Olsen twins.  Which is kind of ridiculous.  I feel like the twins dress like they’re 80 but they don’t actually look old.  Whereas, I feel like Elizabeth Olsen’s face always looks older… maybe it’s her make up?  I’m not even sure…

  • Anonymous

    OK, let’s stop messing around. This healthy-looking, smiling, upbeat sort of person is not an Olsen, is she?  It doesn’t seem possible.

    I second the TLo reservation about the bulky collar and necklace, and other than that?  She looks terrific. I especially love the skirt and shoes.

    It is certainly a vast improvment over her allegedly “stylish designer” sisters.  She looks very nice for this event, the necklace is a bit heavy for my taste but over all, looks good.  I still think she looks like MK&A’s older sister but still prettier.

    I was going to say IN as I think she looks really cute … but then I noticed it’s a damn Frankenstein skirt! And on the model the mismatched pieces aren’t even the same length!!!! Didn’t TLo do a post not too long ago begging for the identity crisis dresses to stop? Oh well, I will still give her an IN because I do like the look on her.

    This is the third post in two weeks of the baby Olsen and I wonder if she has issues exposing skin on her chest or something because all of the outfits have had high or higher necklines. Also, her boobs look a little droopy, I think she needs a better bra. Of course it’s refreshing to see an Olsen who actually needs a bra in the first place.

Those that have commented previously–yes she should become her sisters’ stylist.

    Overall, I love this look.  I hate those shoes, not because it’s her or the color, just in general.  They terrify me; they give me this creepy, institutional, Nurse Ratched kind of vibe.  But my own personal psychoses aside Ms. Olsen looks fresh, perky, age appropriate, and 75% of her body weight isn’t coming from eye make-up.  So what’s not to love?  IN!

    Out.  The high neck, terrible necklace and overly complex jacket outweigh the cute skirt and the color.  This is definitely a case where she should have taken off one item (or two) before leaving the house.   Jacket and skirt are fighting by both being complex, and you add the top and it’s too much.

    I was originally going to pass on this, first thought was MEH, but it just looks so haphazard for the RC, that I was swayed to the side of OUT after further review.  I hate the schizophrenic skirt.  The collar and necklace does look too high and choking…makes me uncomfortable.  Speaking of uncomfortable…those shoes with no socks/stockings/tights …eww & no.  Her hair and makeup are disasters.  I also really dislike the pairing of the jacket with the outfit, although I kind of like the jacket.  yep…OUT.

    The shirt is unflattering and doesn’t look as if it fits right. So rumply. So bulky. So awkward looking.

    Wonderful skirt. Cool shoes. I almost like the jacket but it looks several sizes too large for her, judging from the length of the sleeves. The blouse is a problem. 

  • Anonymous

    I must disagree. There’s too much incongruity going on here. That high collar could only be mumsier if she wore a cameo pin instead of that heavy choker. That business is fugly all by itself, but contrasting with the cute skirt just makes it worse.

    We can’t see much of the blouse under the jacket, but what my imagination is filling in, based on the funny way it’s tucked into the skirt, is not attractive.

    I love the jacket, but not with that top. The skirt is adorable, and would work with either the top or the jacket, but not both.

    I like the idea of gray shoes with this, but that’s the wrong gray. This needs a cool gray, not a warm gray, and definitely not shiny gray.

    But for me it all boils down to that fug going on around her neck. That alone forces me to give her an OUT.

    The silly high neck on this look and the one you highlighted earlier this week makes me think that she’s trying to hide a hickey.  I would suggest she try a scarf next time – out.

    Although I must add that based on early reviews of her movie, we’ll be able to tell her apart from her sisters with relative ease since it apprears she can actually act.

    OUT. She looks like she rolled out of bed and put whatever was at hand on.

    Out. Proportions are weird, the high collar is unflattering and too much, the jacket doesn’t work with the outfit, and the shirt looks all mussed and wonky underneath it. Plus the skirt is sort of droopy. I’m surprised by you, TLo, usually you are so right on.

    Really? You really think she looks great in here? Because to me, she’s full-on fug. OUT.

    Lord save us from Olsen red carpet duck face. The pieces are cute except for the high-collared shirt which is so aggressively non-cute it ruins the skirt, shoes, and jacket for me. OUT.

    IN.  She still looks really cute, and great in that blue — but I think it’s a little busy for me.  But she’s still dressing better than the twins any day.

    Um, actually my first thought was a youthful, very youthful Hilary Clinton, But overall I like it. IN

    Bits and pieces could have been improved, but overall this is definitely an IN. (Hey, we grade on a curve sometimes, yes?)

    She looks cute, and her makeup actually doesn’t age her.  I showed my husband the picture of her a few days ago where she looked *so* old and asked him how old he thought she was, and he guessed a woman in her 40s trying — and failing — to look younger.  Eek!  So it’s nice to see her actually look like she’s 21, and wearing clothes that a 21-year-old can get away with on a chilly evening.  A provisional IN, although as has been pointed out, there is still plenty of room for improvement.

    The last dress you covered for her also had a super high neckline–I wonder what’s going on there??

    IN!  I love her for this!

    I think you’re grading on a curve, a terrible Olson taste curve. She is totally OUT, hate the bipolar skirt and THAT COLLAR! ugh.

  • Anonymous

    She looks 10 years younger.  I guess 30 is the new 20!

    Seriously, the girl is OUT.  Out to lunch…out to dry…out of left field…whatever.  She’s 20 years old and should not be dressing like SpinsterCatLady goes out on a date.

    OUT.  I just did the family genome and the Olsens are lacking the ‘Fashion discernment” gene.  So tragic.

    …You’re kidding, right? She looks a half-century older than she is and the proportions are messed up.

    OUT

    No no no!! Someone is playing a trick on us and she’s actually 35, right? HATE everything on the top half of her body. OUT!!!

  • p. clementine

    Is it just me, or do all of her choices look too big for her?

  • http://toodles.yelp.com AWStevens

    In a Dolly Parton voice: LOOK y’all!  It’s the skirt of many colors! 

    REALLY TLo?  This outfit is vintage all the WRONG years.  The shoes look 1983, the skirt looks 1973 (think “Love Story”), the shirt is just wealthy dowager NASTY, and the leather jacket is back to 1983…  OOOOOOOUUUT!

  • Alloy Jane

    She’s totally dressed like an age-ed socialite.  That turtleneck with that jacket AND grandma’s comforter set turned skirt AAAAAND those oxfords?  She’s like a Mel Brooks character or something.  Honestly, I don’t think I could ever get behind that skirt or top.  The oxfords and jacket in a different context–but not together–would be much more youthful, I think.

  • Anonymous

    I like all the pieces individually but I’m not so sure I like them together.
    Still, she doesn’t look like an 80 year old socialite so for an Olsen that’s an IN.

    I’m tired of grading on a curve. Out.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CQPXLNCBM5CZSHZZXJDHPVFS7E Buffy

    She’s cute and looks put together, waaaay more so than her big sisters ever did, so that’s an automatic IN from me!

    Hate the schizophrenic skirt.  Pick either material & go with it.

  • http://twitter.com/Merneith Merneith

    In. She looks good although I hate that skirt taken on its own. The oxfords are super cute.

  • http://www.facebook.com/sorana.tarmu Sorana Tarmu

    I would have liked it if the color scheme wasn’t so bla. And the collar and necklace still makes her look like a 80 year old socialite.So it’s OUT, sorry.

    The neckline is definitely too high.  Makes it look like she has no neck.  But the overall effect is quite cute, so she gets an IN.

    IN.  She looks natural and interesting at the same time.  IN.

  • Lisa

    SO CUTE!!! Not a whiff of over-sized bag lady clothes on her!

    Adorable. Even love the hair and makeup — IN!

    The jacket with the skirt looks boxy to me, and everything happening around her neck kills whatever positives there were in the individual pieces.  OUT.

    I kind of hate the shirt, but I want the rest of it. And she is adorably perky. And she has a great figure. IN.

    T Lo hates on the franken-dresses but no hate for the franken-skirt? The collar is a bit high, but I like the shoes and jacket. HATE the skirt.

    Sorry, cutest-of-the-Olsens… OUT.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_625RQ5YIKR3JR4H6BMNCKB6YDE Brenda

    I think it’s an IN. I love that the Olsen women are always covered up–though it’s probably more to hide track marks than it is due to modesty, I still like it.

    In! Cute as a button, I don’t even mind the high collar. She looks young and happy to be so!

    In, she looks very chic to me

  • http://www.facebook.com/rachel.council Rachel Council

    Out. The shirt, the tinsel necklace, and the skirt are inoffensively ugly. Cool jacket and cute shoes, though!

    OUT. I think this look is a little aging, especially with the high collar. Not as bad as her sisters mind you, but she doesn’t look her age.

  • http://twitter.com/pag_baj Paige Boerman

    I hate it. The proportions look weird, she looks way older than she is – and my grandma has a blouse just like that. OUT.

  • Caitlin Gozdecki

    The blouse looks a size too big and that collar is way too high. a slim fitting v- or scoop neck and it woud have been an in. As is, OUT- sorry Sporty Olson

  • Alisa Rivera

    Hate the necklace but otherwise it’s adorable. She’s willing to take risks but she doesn’t look like a freak, like her sisters, or like a ho, like so many other starlets. In!

    Out for the outfit, but I’ll say “in” because compared to her sisters, she looks happy and healthy
