Non twin Olsen sister Elizabeth gets the Manic Pixie Dream Girl styling, which, in 2014 means Miu Miu and Carven. They’re the go-to’s for quirky-girl looks.
Elizabeth Olsen covers the June 2014 cover of Marie Claire UK magazine in Miu Miu photographed by David Roemer and styled by Jayne Pickering.
On still riding the subway and enjoying being totally unrecognizable: “I hope that never changes. I’m never bothered anywhere. Only occasionally someone will say, ‘Have we met before? You look so familiar.’”
On her idol Michelle Pfeiffer: “‘I never had a heart-throb or a band I loved, but I had Michelle Pfeiffer, so I tried to copy what my friends would do and had magazine pictures cut out in frames. She was the reason I wanted to be an actor.”
On her upcoming nuptials: “I’m relaxed about it, but I am excited and planning ideas because it’s fun It’s just like throwing a party to celebrate life. I love being in a relationship a lot.”
On not planning a joint wedding with sister Mary-Kate Olsen: “I just told her she gets to pick a date first.”
It all suits her perfectly, even though we’d never call her a Manic Pixie Dream Girl. She always looks way too tired for anyone to call her manic. Depressed Pixie Dream Girl doesn’t quite have the same ring to it and besides, it doesn’t fit. Serious Pixie Dream Girl doesn’t quite make sense. Thoughtful Pixie Dream Girl? It gets harder and harder to put our celebrities in little boxes, darlings. We’re just gonna go with Quirky Pixie.
