Elizabeth Olsen In Christian Dior – 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

One of this year’s breakout stars, Elizabeth Olsen attended her first 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in West Hollywood yesterday evening.

Elizabeth chose a black Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2012 gown with a silk short-sleeved top and leather and chiffon tiered skirt.

For such a major event, it pains me to know that Lizzie could do so much better than this somber and truly unflattering dress.

Loose waves, Ferragamo shoes and a clutch by The Row complete the look.

    Sigh. I agree!

    Wow! For a pretty girl she gets it so wrong, a little too often for my liking. It makes me wonder if she really has any idea about fashion. The volume overwhelms her frame, there’s so much fabric with the added sleeve and it’s just very boring.

    It’s a nice actually – just too tame for the event – When she first came to the scene I expected her to blow us away with her sense of style given obviously that she’s the olsen twins’ sister – but her style is turning out to be sort of lame – not the movie star glamourous style and nor the fashionista / style savvy look you would expect from her – she’s in between in that undecided area- a few missteps and no vintage dash our hopes of a new style icon

    Unflattering is right! Here’s hoping that in her next appearance, she has a better dress and she stands up straighter.

    I can’t help it, I adore her! She’s so gorgeous, talented, and interesting… and she was absolutely snubbed for her terrific performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene. When I think ingenue, I think of her, so I have to forgive all of these awkward dress decisions. But I do commend her for picking interesting designs and thinking outside of the box… even if they tend to not flatter her figure.

    I like the sleeveless version on the model better. There is far too much going on with the skirt.

    Very very unflattering dress, the skirt makes her look like a lamp.

    Looks like she is taking styling tips from her sisters..

    I think it’s a very good choice. It’s simple and pretty!

    The only good thing here is that this dress makes her appear quite tall. Other than that, I agree…unflattering and boring.

    I don’t like this look on her. It’s so dark and it’s really overwhelming her.

    She needs to talk with Mary-Kate about about eating disorder. I think that will help her to look good on clothes…
