Elizabeth Olsen In Miu Miu – 2014 Met Gala

Elizabeth Olsen In Miu Miu - 2014 Met Gala

Elizabeth Olsen also attended the 2014 Met Gala, hosted this evening (May 5) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

In a sea of sweeping gowns, the starlet stood out for her head-to-toe Miu Miu look, eschewing a long dress in favour of a custom-designed pale blue mini, encrusted with heavy-handed crystal embroidery along the décolleté and sleeves.

In what can only be explained by the signature quirk of Miuccia Prada, Elizabeth paired the pastel frock with primary colours via red and yellow satin strappy sandals.

Not content to stop there, another strange, clashing tone was added via a metal-framed turquoise satin clutch.

While from the neck up, Elizabeth was rather lovely with her smokey mauve eye and red lip, the rest of the ensemble had about as much appeal as a figure-skating costume, which is to say, hardly any at all.

From the failed illusion nude neckline to the over-the-top glittery embellishment and the long sleeves that came to a diamond point at the hand, all this look was missing was a pair of ice skates.

Miu Miu Fall 2014 Front Row

Miu Miu FROW

A host of stars, including many faces of the brand, took to the front row of Miu Miu’s Fall 2014 show in Paris, France this morning (March 5) during Paris Fashion Week.

Rihanna: After looking chic in Chanel yesterday, she looked a hot mess today at Miu Miu. Over-styled and overworked in garish colours, nothing from the knees up is appealing to me. She wore a Prada red nappa leather and black shearling overcoat, paired with a tobacco and yellow intarsia-knit cashmere sweater and purple silk scarf, all from the Prada Fall 2014 collection.

Lea Seydoux: The French beauty cleanses my eyes from Rihanna’s car-crash Couture, wearing a pretty pastel look featuring a petal-pink printed silk blouse and ‘Ciré’ vinyl pencil skirt with Jimmy Choo bronze heels. While the look reads spring, it is so very pretty and styled effortlessly that I just can’t help but fall in love with it.

Elizabeth Olsen In Proenza Schouler – ‘In Secret’ LA Premiere

Elizabeth Olsen In Proenza Schouler - 'In Secret' LA Premiere

Elizabeth Olsen attended the Los Angeles premiere of ‘In Secret’ held at ArcLight Hollywood on Thursday (February 6) in Hollywood, California.

The actress wore a Proenza Schouler Spring 2014 sleeveless suede dress featuring a high round neck, an open bust with bar hardware detail, and a mid-length skirt.

To complement the hardware on her frock, she styled her look with metallic-silver pumps and the Proenza Schouler ‘Curved Bar’ suede clutch featuring a chrome top bar and a tonal leather flap at the front, which is also from the Spring 2014 collection.

Never one to make too much of a fuss in the hair and makeup department, the actress opted for a barely there, hardly touched look.

Lupita Nyong’o, Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen & Bella Heathcote for Miu Miu Spring 2014

Miu Miu Spring 2014 ad campaign (2)

Miu Miu’s Spring 2014 campaign features a few of our favourite Hollywood starlets.

Lupita Nyong’o, who has been wearing a lot of Prada/Miu Miu lately; Elle Fanning, who wears the same dress we recently saw on Miu Miu’s Resort 2014 campaign girl; Lea Seydoux; Elizabeth Olsen, who sports super-long locks for the campaign; and Bella Heathcote, who is totally unrecognisable.

Apart from the mix of young talent, I love this campaign’s vintage-inspired styling. I have my eye on those Courrèges coats, cute thigh-high pop socks, and Olsen’s tan suede lace-up boots.

Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shot the campaign back in November, just as the buzz around Lupita was bubbling.

“The actresses’ poses, full of personality, convey their diverse points of view, effortlessly translating the new spirit of the Miu Miu woman”, said Miuccia Prada.

Elizabeth Olsen In Altuzarra – ‘Oldboy’ New York Screening

Elizabeth Olsen In Altuzarra - 'Oldboy' New York Screening

Elizabeth Olsen attended the screening of ‘Oldboy’ held at the AMC Lincoln Square Theater in New York City yesterday evening.

The indie actress selected an Altuzarra Spring 2014 look consisting of a metallic-thread silk jacket and a white silk draped dress with a thigh-high slit with some of the tie details seductively left undone.

It’s a complicated look, but it sits well with the jacket possibly covering up the more challenging elements of the look.

I do feel a thud at the feet with her opting to select these black Gianvito Rossi for Altuzarra black satin slingback pumps, but I guess she took the inspiration from the runway.

Iron-straight blonde tresses and a shimmering pink lip completed her look.

Do you find the shoes bothersome?
