Style Files: Elizabeth Olsen

by /

Elizabeth Olsen might be the sister of two of the biggest fashion icons in the world, Mary-Kate and Ashley, but the actress is a style star in her own right.

Since her rise to fame, the youngest Olsen sister has more than held her own in the style stakes, impressing with her androgynous, laidback day-to-day style and her glamorous yet pared-down red carpet chic.

As she celebrates her 26th birthday, we take a look back at her greatest fashion moments...


Previously speaking about her famous twin sisters, Elizabeth revealed that rather than distance herself from their style, she copies them "like the rest of the world does".

Asked whether she considers herself their muse – the twins named one of the fashion lines Elizabeth & James, the name of their brother – Elizabeth said: "God, no. I just try and see what they do and copy them like the rest of the world does."

She also admitted that borrowing their clothes is out of the question since she is so much taller.

"As I passed them, it was awful because all my friends would get their clothes and I got nothing," she said.

"Pants and shoes never fitted me after 14, but all my friends would say, 'Oh this? This is Mary-Kate's.' I'd be like, 'I hate you, that's so cute'."

Elizabeth has certainly made waves in the fashion world since making a name for herself in acting. She is a regular on the front rows of the most high-profile designer shows and has fronted a campaign for Miu Miu.

The 25-year-old attended the Met Ball last week as a guest of Prada, wearing a powder blue embellished dress by the Italian fashion label.
