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.
