Oh, Elizabeth Olsen, you’re so perfect. You’re the most perfect-est Olsen of all time. I may have been a member of the mail-order Mary Kate and Ashley Fan Club circa 2000, but if they had a mail-order fan club for you in 2013, I would join it right now. Right now! Don’t worry, they didn’t even send anything good, just a 9-by-13 black and white photo from time to time. Kind of creepy, come to think of it. Anyway, this outfit is perfect, just like everything else Elizabeth does. Let’s steal it, shall we? Keep reading »
Is it just me, or was the beauty for this year’s Oscars kind of a bore? The ladies looked lovely as always, but for the life of me I couldn’t pick out a makeup look that really wowed. Maybe it’s because some of the real stunners, the young actresses who can afford to dare to stand out from the pack, skipped the ceremony entirely and made their way over to the Vanity Fair party a few hours early instead. Basically every time Elizabeth Olsen, who’s quickly becoming my favorite Olsen, leaves the house and is photographed, I subsequently covet to death whatever makeup she’s wearing — she always looks fresh-faced and pretty, never overdone. Predictably the Vanity Fair fête was no exception, but it was her appearance the night before at the Independent Spirit Awards that really stuck with me: the rose gold eyeshadow she sported is well on its way to becoming a major trend. The girls in Glamour‘s beauty department were one step ahead of me in identifying the frequency with which the gorgeously gilded shade has been worn. Let me tell you, I’ll take anything rose gold without question, but I’m really in love with it when swiped on lids. Here are the products you can use to get this celeb-approved look.
Vanity Fair releases its Hollywood issue annually, but this year’s cover is unique in that it is the first of its kind to be shot by famed photog Mario Testino. His technique translates beautifully to the cover, though it’s not immediately apparent that it’s his work. The 11 young actresses featured are dressed impeccably, draped in silky pastels and exuding a sensuous, past-century boudoir air. Ever concerning, though, is the fact that hardly any of the starlets are recognizable. Aside from Rooney Mara, whose angular 1920s bob and sullen features make her easily identifiable, the rest of the girls bear little resemblance to, well, themselves. Keep reading »
Sunday afternoon PSA! If you haven’t yet seen the movie “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” YOU MUST. It is one of the best films I’ve seen all year. It stars the absolutely divine Elizabeth Olsen as Martha, a young woman who escapes a cult and goes to live with her sister and her brother-in-law. The movie shows Martha as she tries to assimilate back into “normal” life alongside flashbacks that reveal how she was indoctrinated into the cult, came to be known as “Marcy May,” and the horrors she endured under their control. (John Hawkes, who was in “Winter’s Bone,” is seriously creepy great as the cult leader, Patrick.) The film’s ending is one that has either been loved or hated by viewers and critics, but one thing everyone who’s seen the movie agrees on is that Olsen is superb.
So, after you’ve bought your tickets to see the movie on Fandango and have a couple hours to kill before you head to the theater, click through this slideshow to see 10 examples of this breakout star also killing it in the style department.
I love a trippy psychological thriller full of raw talent even more than I like mint chip ice cream on a hot September day, and that’s saying a lot. And in this regard, the upcoming film “Martha Marcy May Marlene” looks right up my alley. I’m ready to gobble it down.
The film stars Elizabeth Olsen, younger sister to the Olsen twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, and she looks to be pretty mesmerizing is this role. Olsen plays Martha, and the film follows Martha’s schizophrenic narrative between past and present — past being the time she recently spent living on a farm in an abusive cult and present immediately following her escape from the brutal cult, living with her sister and brother-in-law, who know nothing of her time with the cult, and trying to reconnect in normalcy and come to terms with the terrifying things that happened to her on the farm.

Until now, she is best known for being the Elizabeth in Elizabeth and James. But in the next year, we will be getting to know Elizabeth Olsen, the younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley, much better because, well, she’s made more movies recently than her sisters combined. In fact, she has two flicks premiering at Sundance this year. After the jump, the deets on Elizabeth. Keep reading »
