In our Out: Elizabeth Olsen in Alexander McQueen

Posted on October 14, 2011

Brace yourselves, public. There’s another Olsen being foisted upon us. The good news is, she’s apparently so good in her film debut that there’s actually an Oscar buzz surrounding her, which is prompting all sorts of deliciously dishy reports that her older sisters are seething with jealousy.

Anyone who can get those creepy womb-mates to get angry is welcome here at T Lo International Style headquarters, we say. Now let’s judge her.

Elizabeth Olsen in Alexander McQueenElizabeth Olsen attends the 49th annual New York Film Festival presentation of “Martha Marcy May Marlene” in head-to-toe Alexander McQueen.

Well, one thing’s for sure: she’s got the Olsen girl predilection for dressing up and looking much, much older than her actual age.  Reminder: she’s all of 21 years old. That’s a hairstyle and makeup for a lady a good 10 to 15 years older than her.

As for the getup, there’s a lot to like here. In fact, we like all of the pieces, from the dress, to the shoes, and even the clutch, belt, and bracelet. We just don’t like them all together. We’ve always felt that showy pieces are fine, but that you should mitigate them with less showy pieces so as not to look like Edina Monsoon. A showy belt OR showy shoes, but not both at the same time. And while we like a put-together look, there is such a thing as being too put together, such as when you decide to dress yourself head to toe in pieces from the same designer. We love a black and gold combo, but just a hint of another color here would have gone a long way in preventing her from looking like a New Year’s Eve decoration.

Minions? It is now your turn to judge.

 

Vote Now!
IN! Sparkly and sophisticated! She’s a Holiday Barbie!

OUT! Way too matchy-match! She’s a Holiday Barbie!

 

Emma Stone’s half-assed look squeaked by with an OUT, although quite a few minions loved it just for the Giorgio Armani dress.

      this dress does strange things to her torso…

        That, plus the neck ruffle combine to make her look like she’s in traction.  I think I have to say OUT.

          Yeah – it has made her neck look thick and makes her looks sort of bulky through the upper arms and bust.  Too bad – it’s a good idea for a look.  This just isn’t the right dress.

      I WANT THOSE SHOES, stat. I was drooling at the thought of them, but unfortunately I’m cursed with serious case of child-foot and will never find a pair small enough. It’s a cruel life..

      This would look fab on a 40-something actress.. It’s an OUT purely because, despite how amazing the pieces are, they are NOT FOR HER.

      I’ll vote In. I agree that the outfit is a little too matchy, but I think the dress is pretty cool. The bun doesn’t bug me too much. Lots of messy buns and messy updos with the hipster set these days.

      ETA: I would have never had known she is related to the Olsen twins. She looks so…what’s the word I’m looking for here…normal.

      I think In, precisely because–as you say–she is a Holiday Barbie. Although I would ditch the gold death bracelet (as too much with the belt and shoes) in favor of a different bracelet.

      I think I would like it more if it didn’t have the sheer piece-it’s so distracting I almost didn’t notice the belt.  And I’m worried that neck piece might actually be choking her.  As for the shoes, though, TO DIE!  The hair and make-up are a bit mature, but it’s still pretty.

      I think it’s a bit much, but I don’t hate it.  And it’s her first movie premiere (as in her own movie).  And the shoes are really hypnotizing me.  In.

      OUT. Also, something about the shape of her nose makes me a little concerned she had plastic surgery to look more like her more famous sisters. But that’s neither here nor there. It’s just not a good luck.
      Also, she looks about 40 on the cover of the latest Nylon. So I was already aware of this third Olsen’s similar predilection for looking twice her age.

      Is there something in the olsen genes that says ‘I’ll dress my age + 30″?  What’s weird about it to me is that her pose and posture looks like an older woman who is trying to say “I’ve still got it, bitches.”  Strange.

      IN, but I think the belt is the real mistake here.  It draws attention for the wrong reasons.  It’s flashy with a very basic shape whereas it should have been less flashy but on a larger scale with a more interesting shape.  That would have allowed the shoes to be the flash while at the same time doing more than making her look like she’s taped herself back together after an accident in the magician’s box. The 3/4 profile also shows that the belt is in a rather odd position, it’s too high for a waist and too low to accent her bust.

      Out.  The look is way too old for her.  The neckline and hem area are just too much, too fussy.  If those areas were simpler, and the showy belt and shoes were the main focus, it would be a better look overall, even though is would still be too old looking.

      One too many competing items in the look, with the dress ruffle, collar, belt, & shoes.  I think I’d have given her an IN without the belt…it’s not needed and ruins the proportions of it.  Without the belt…the dress and shoes work perfectly.

      I can understand why she wore her hair up with that collar…but what she did is old spinster-ish.  The makeup is too severe.

      I give her major points for being able to walk in those shoes (assuming she was able to walk and didn’t have to be helped down the red carpet by bodyguards or canes). And her face looks pretty.

      But I’m with TLo on the overdone score. It’s just too much, and a little restraint in accessories would have made such a big difference.

      Out. As you said, it’s too aging for her, but the style of the dress itself lends itself too much to a “clown at a funeral” vibe, what the ruff at the neck and at the skirt hem. And one must have an especially swan-like neck to pull that off; otherwise one has become what Tyra’s Miss Jay lovingly describes as “a no-neck monster.” And I really hate the shoes, too.

      i first have to admit that i find the twins strangely intriguing in a guilty pleasure kind of way.  and while she is more conventionally attractive than her older sisters, and her sense of style seems much more sane, i still find them more attractive.  so, lock me up.  i never said i was normal.  anyway, on to the clothes.

      i HATE that extra little peek-a-boo netting and ruffles at the hemline.  it makes the dress appear too long in addition to just looking odd
      and serving no purpose.  the shoes and belt look like she stole them from a gypsy fortune teller. AND THE HAIR…that is not a style for a woman fifteen years older, it’s for a woman forty years older.  i’m a couple of years beyond that and i wear my hair that way much of the time.  ok, mine usually has a plastic butterfly clip holding it up.  but that is definitely some crazy old lady hair.

      that all being said, i give her a little bitty in just for putting herself out there.  it’ll be good to have another olsen to kick around.

      Out.  It’s not working for her.

      Those shoes are almost enough to warrant an “IN” by themselves.  Cut the dress off right above the peek a boo, give her a deep vibrant purple or red belt and she’d have made it.  But, she missed.  OUT.

      i am thinking you need a long neck to pull that off, and i am guessing a teeny tiny Olson sister is not in possession of one…OUT

      I might be late, but I have to give her an IN.

      She looks so pretty, but yes she does look older.  Alot of that can be blamed on her wanting to be taken seriously.  Esp considering her family tree.

      And I don’t think there’s too much bling.  Those shoes are KILLER!

      IN! If only because I think it’s a really interesting look and I want to promote this sort of breakthrough actress style. No short, tight, and shiny cocktail dresses with a Marchesa ruffle! Although I think it does weird things to her torso, but I think it’s kind of fabulous.

      Out! Way too much going on and that dress is not flattering.

      Just enough is wrong for me to call this one OUT.

      Out.  The dress is horribly unflattering, and the shoes are just plain ugly.

      Not looking like a hobo does not an “In” make. This is not her dress…I think it would work better on someone taller. OUT!!

      I agree with you – I would have had no idea Miss Olsen is 21.  The belt is awfully chunky, and makes her look the same way.  I think it would look great with a fuller skirt.

      Sweet Mother of God, this is a train wreck. Sorry gentlemen, but that dress is hiddy, even without the awful accessorizing. Maybe it looked better on whatever 6′ stick figure with a 12″-long neck walked it down a runway, but it sure isn’t Miss Lizzy’s dress. A big OUT.

      I can’t even say in or out, I’m just too dumbstruck by the fact that she looks like an Olsen TRIPLET, not just a regular sister.

      IN for me, even though the dress troubles me. I wish it either didn’t have the ruffle at the top, or had less ruffle at the bottom. Both together look a bit too much like a poodle.  But I think she looks fierce, if it makes her look a bit older, I fail to see why that’s such a bad thing. Too much obsession with youth in this culture. If she wants to play with age perceptions, I think that’s just fine.

      She looks like a dress up doll. Is there a really expensive American Girl store for teens and twenty-somethings that I didn’t know about? Where you buy the whole outfit in one box with instructions for the hairdo AND you get an outfit for your doll to match? Seriously, this is a ridiculous look. Couture Garanamals. Waste of a stunning dress.

      Nnnnnnyeh. Out. 

    • Addicted2Glamour

       This is all a  bit desperate, don’t you think? ( And TLO’s reference to Eddie Monsoon is SPOT ON.) This screams one of two things: “I’m wealthy enough to drape myself head-to-toe in high-end designer fashions” OR “I’m important and/or famous enough to be loaned said fashions.” One piece at a time, dear. One piece at a time. OUT.

      it all looks like something Sophia Loren should be wearing (with a cleavage window of course). I don’ like it at all. OUT

      I can live with an Olsen that studies at Tisch.  Hate the shoes, though.

      OUT. This dress is weirdly shaped, and I can’t helpo wanting to rip it off her neck. She looks like she’s choking.

      When I read “older sisters are seething with jealousy.” I was amazed.  You mean she’s NOT an older sister?  She looks pretty, but VERY much older than 21.  Too much matchy-ness as well.  Out.

      IN she looks chic and sophisticated and urbane. don’t love the makeup but all around IN.

      Out! I thought she was at least 30. I don’t think the cut of the dress is doing her any favors.

    • oohsparkley!

      IN, in spite of the thick neck that dress gives her.

      that dress looks uncomfortable and changes her shape, but definitely not in a good way. And that hairstyle is too much. OUT.

      She normally looks fab but the high neck on this makes it one for the OUT pile.
