Elizabeth Olsen In Alexander McQueen – ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’ New York Film Festival Premiere

Elizabeth Olsen continues to be the only Olsen sibling whose style I really love.

Last night she attended the ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’ New York Film Festival premiere wearing Alexander McQueen.

Her navy-halter black dress had a pleated, tiered neckline, a ruffled skirt with a sheer panel and a gold embellished waistband.

The black and gold theme continued as she carried an Alexander McQueen skull-clasp clutch and black velvet Alexander McQueen embellished wedges.

I love the top knot and the deep red lip colour.

I’m glad to see her wearing something outside of her comfort zone.

    I thinks she looks magnifique. I mean the shoes alone should get her on to BDOTW poll,

    I love the risk and hope she keeps it up, but, imo, this look isn’t working on her.

    Love this look… those shoes are heavenly!

    Divine shoes! would love this dress without that extra ruffle and sheer insert but I have to say she pulls this off for me. It gives her a lovely shape and it’s edgy but still very elegant with that high neckline.

    This is unexpectedly a chocolate fondant with a surprising gooey centre..the twins had better watch out.

      I feel like its a little too ‘by the books’ vs. the twins who have a natural ability to mix designers and just put together ‘looks’. To me, this looks very commercial and unnatural, like she went to Barneys or even the McQueen store and bought these off the rack to create this look.

      Make sense?

    I’m honestly not loving this on her at all. It shortens her and makes her look, well, fat (which she isn’t). I love the Olsens style but I haven’t latched on to anything Elizabeth has worn because I ever see her dressing for her body type.

    “Hi, is that Elizabeth? This is BDOTW calling…”

  8. Trisha October 12, 2011 at 20:27 #

    Agreed FC. This is definitely outside her comfort zone, and it paid off. She looks so chic! BDOTW from head to toe.

    Good Lord those shoes are AMAZING.

  10. Gaber October 12, 2011 at 17:53 #

    Well, well, well – looks who is walking all over her tits!
    It’s the high neck that kills this look – it creates an illusion of her breasts being much lower than they are due to the amount of dress between the start of her breasts and her neck.

    I imagine this only looks good on someone very flat-chested.

    I don’t like the waistband and I wish she would have modified the neckline because you need a long neck to pull this dress off.
    Fabulous shoes though.

    BDOTW! she looks really gorgeous here 🙂 love the makeup and the hair.

  13. Nat39 October 12, 2011 at 17:25 #

    Spectacular shoes but in this case are truly an OVERKILL, with all these ruffles and embellishments going on already. It`s just too much overall.

  14. mm October 12, 2011 at 16:56 #

    She looks so pretty. I agree this BDOTW worthy

  15. robbie October 12, 2011 at 16:40 #

    that collar bothers me so much they remind me of clowns.

    minus the collar the look is gorgeous.

  16. Shelby October 12, 2011 at 16:36 #

    She looks fabulous! I love the shoes! And the top knot isn’t centered, but I kind of love it for that reason!

  17. NYChic1114 October 12, 2011 at 16:31 #

    The shoes are just TDF!!!!!!!!

  18. Hannah October 12, 2011 at 16:17 #

    Although I don’t adore this look, I don’t find it particularly flattering and because she has such great colouring and is just so gorgoeus I think the more grecian and ‘easy’ pieces, like the lace the row dress she wore a few months ago, suit her better, but I find what she is doing with her style very clever. She isn’t at all predictable, which is a great thing, and she is differentiating herelf form her sisters, and the shoes are gorgeous. Red nails to match th elips would have made the look a little more congruous. I cannot wait to se what she treats us to next.

  19. Jones19 October 12, 2011 at 16:06 #

    She’s got much better style than her sisters. I like this look.

    • maria October 12, 2011 at 16:24 #

      same here.

  20. Rebecca Z October 12, 2011 at 15:49 #

    She is gorgeous and has a great sense of style, but I don’t like the topknot and dark red lips with this collar–she looks like a little French clown. But she has a great future in fashion.

    • Jen October 13, 2011 at 03:17 #

      Agree. The topknot plus collar is too much. But the accessories! Love the belt, shoes and clutch.

  21. Vera October 12, 2011 at 15:49 #

    she looks ridicilous.

    Even that she’s taller than her famous sisters, she looks soooooo short in this combination.

    Bad, bad, bad.

  22. eimearoconnor October 12, 2011 at 15:28 #

    I just feel like pulling at my collar when i look at this… i just looks kinda suffocating!

  23. LizLemooooon October 12, 2011 at 15:04 #

    GREAT LOOK. Flawless hair, make up and accessories. So jealous that she’s got such access to designers thanks to her sisters but I’m glad she seems to be a hard worker, she studied before she started acting and it seems to have paid off.

    P.S. Glad the site’s back FC!

  24. T from Sydney October 12, 2011 at 15:02 #

    shes the best dress olsen.

    i dont get the twins style. wearing x large is not my style.
    but what ever floats their boat.

  25. Mick October 12, 2011 at 15:00 #

    I really like this girl’s style! I don’t really see her in this dress, but it’s great that she’s not afraid to mix things up a little. Hair and make-up are great. Oh, and those shoes!!

  26. Hermoine October 12, 2011 at 15:00 #

    Those shoes… I am speechless! What an incredible work of art- I would just display them on the mantle- forget wearing them.

  27. Lola October 12, 2011 at 14:52 #

    Sorry that should have been famous for …

  28. Lola October 12, 2011 at 14:52 #

    She looks better than her sisters… But she also looks 47….what is this Olsen da pus for?
