ASOS has released their new March 2012 online magazine featuring Elizabeth Olsen on the front cover. As a long-time Olsen fan, I just feel compelled to share some of the wonderful prints and stories.
Elizabeth Olsen, the 22-year-old American actress, indie queen, and younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, was photographed exclusively by ASOS at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in New York. Elizabeth was the star of the Sundance Film Festival 2011 (Martha Marcy May Marlene) and undeniably one of 2012’s brightest new talents. Her new film, Red Lights, premiered last week at Sundance co-starring Robert Deniro and Sigourney Weaver. Her second new film, Liberal Arts, debuted the same week and co-starred Zac Efron.
Brussels sprouts – “I am obsessed with them.”
Her famous last name:
“A lot of casting directors didn’t make the connection at first. I loved it when that would happen, because there was no baggage of any kind, whether it was good or bad…I’ve always wanted to feel like everything I did, I worked hard for, because I had a complex about it.”
Her famous family:
“Mary-Kate and Ashley have celebrated my birthday with me every year since I’ve been in New York, my last four birthdays, and it’s been so special. Or when you have a fight with a boyfriend or a friend, or whatever, they’re here.”
Her upbringing: “I did lead a very charmed life growing up, but I was aware of the things that were abnormal. The only time I flrew first-class as a kid was when my sisters did these cruises called ‘Sail With The Stars.’ They were the main event…other than that, never.”
Being the Elizabeth in her sisters’ clothing line Elizabeth & James: “In my mind, that was, ‘Oh cool, that means I get free clothes!’ For two years, I didn’t buy anything. But even as a little kid…I had all their hand-me-downs.
Her style: Inspired by Celine, Chanel, Isabel Marant and Marni – “I thought it was masculine and quirky and funky.”
I love online magazines – even if they’re essentially just catalogs. (Hey, they’re free and come with pretty pictures!) I don’t think Elizabeth is quite as striking as her two sisters in terms of looks, but she’s definitely fresh-face and cute.
