Vanity Fair March 2012 Hollywood Issue

Vanity Fair’s March 2012 issue, which is the annual Hollywood Issue, features eleven of the most up-and-coming actresses who were shot by Mario Testino.

The main cover features Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain.

After the fold we have Elizabeth Olsen, Adepero Oduye, Shailene Woodley, Paula Patton, Felicity Jones, Lily Collins and Brit Marling.

There are always great debates that go on with regards to this cover every year.

I would’ve swapped Mia with Elizabeth and had her on the main cover, and I’m not sure Paula should be considered up-and-coming as she’s been around for a while. Also Shailene is totally unrecognisable.

Each actress wore a pastel-coloured satin dress for the 20s boudoir-themed shoot with screen-siren hairstyles and bold lip colours.

They all look great, but Jennifer steals the cover for me as she’s in full-on bombshell mode. Very Jessica Rabbit.

Here are some extracts from their interviews:

Jessica on her superstar crush:The English Patient. Of course. Those love scenes!”

Jennifer on who else she’s like to work with: “I’d love to work with the Cohen brothers. Tommy Lee Jones. Jack Nicholson. And I’d love to work with Renee Zellweger. I’m a huge Renee Zellweger fan.”

Rooney on her crush growing up: “Thom Yorke.”

Jennifer on her childhood crush: “When I was little, like 90s, era, I had such a big crush on Justin Timberlake from *NSYNC that I almost thew up.”

Front Row @ Chanel Spring 2012 Couture

Chanel’s Spring 2012 Couture show which was held in Paris on Tuesday afternoon, brought out some of Hollywood’s most fashionable stars.

It was quite the monochromatic front row as the attendees showed off classic Chanel black-and-white chic.

Cameron Diaz: The actress played up her new mod ‘do in a long black Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 coat with metal petticoat button details. Her flawless body was wrapped in a form-fitting white Chanel Resort 2012 dress, paired with pointed black heels.

Diane Kruger: The German actress wore an unmistakably Chanel Pre-Fall 2012 coat-like dress in a black print, offset by a heavy white trim and embellished buttons. The prim dress was paired with over-the-knee boots.

Elizabeth Olsen: The Chanel front row newbie was the only one who dared to stray from the iconic black-and-white palette, wearing a navy double-breasted pea coat. The coat was worn over what appeared to be suede leggings and matching boots. Read More…

Elizabeth Olsen in Chloé – Independent Spirit Awards Nominees Luncheon

Elizabeth Olsen attended the Independent Spirit Awards Nominees Luncheon in LA on Saturday afternoon.

Dressed in head-to-toe cream and white, the actress did a complete 180 from her Proenza Schouler look on Friday to work this simple white Chloé Resort 2012 shirtdress under a nude Chloé Spring 2012 blazer.

The minimal look was accessorized with layered necklaces, nude suede pumps and a classic white The Row bag with gold hardware.

Elizabeth continues to impress us with her range on the red carpet. In this simple and chic look, the newcomer looks like a modern and very stylish lady who lunches, so she’s perfectly event appropriate.

A sweeping sidebun and minimal makeup finish the look.

There are some many great looks we need a Best Dressed Of The Weekend poll.

Elizabeth Olsen In Proenza Schouler – 37th Annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards

It’s has been a busy weekend, yet we still have the Art of Elysium Gala tonight and the Golden Globe Awards tomorrow.

Elizabeth Olsen attended the 37th Annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards last night wearing a Proenza Schouler Spring 2012 dress.

Her black front tie long sleeve dress with a contrasting floral printed skirt is a bold choice from the usually cautious star.

Whilst I like her choice, that keyhole details is a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen, so I’m slightly turned off by that.

Her shoe choice is a bit blah, but I do love her Edie Parker ‘Edie’ navy pearlescent clutch with amethyst mica stripes.

A side swept messy braid completed her look.

First Emilio Pucci, now this Proenza Schouler dress.

Elizabeth Olsen In Emilio Pucci – 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards

Red carpet newcomer Elizabeth Olsen attended her first Critics’ Choice Awards in L.A. this evening.

She opted to wear an Emilio Pucci Spring 2012 long-sleeved mini-dress with cream lace trim. She matched the dress with simple nude Pucci sandals.

Elizabeth is one of the most-anticipated stars to watch on the red carpet this season – she is an Olsen after all – and in her first appearance she did not disappoint.

Wavy blonde locks, a Lena Erziak clutch and gorgeous smile completed her look.

Best Newcomer 2011 – Elizabeth Olsen

Elizabeth Olsen made her major red carpet debut during Cannes Film Festival whilst promoting her new movie, ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’, wearing two looks from her sister’s line, ‘The Row’.

From the moment the fresh-faced beauty came on the scene, she has become a darling on the red carpet.

Thankfully she doesn’t share her older sister’s love for oversized, shabby chic, preferring a more sophisticated classic style, wearing designers like Erdem, Chanel, Valentino and Calvin Klein.

Who Wore Valentino Better? Michelle Yeoh or Elizabeth Olsen

Michelle Yeoh attended the Rome Film Festival premiere of ‘The Lady’ back in October wearing a Valentino Resort 2012 embroidered gown with a croc clutch.

Green bangles and a green watch complemented the emerald stones in her earrings as she styled her hair into a side-swept bun to finish the look.

Elizabeth Olsen opted for a retro look inspired by the stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood when she wore the same dress earlier this week to the 21st annual Gotham Independent Film awards in New York City.

The young actress sported a curly updo and accessorised with a blush satin clutch and Kwiat jewels.

The graceful Elizabeth wins for me.

Michelle over accessorised and her green watch and bangles really felt out of place with her overall look.

Elizabeth Olsen In Valentino – 21st Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards

The Valentino Resort 2012 collection is having a bit of a moment on the red carpet.

Elizabeth Olsen glided down the red carpet at the 21st Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City last night, wearing our third look from the collection in four days.

This soft grey embroidered gown with a stripped skirt is beautiful on Elizabeth as she continues to wow and delight on the red carpet.

I love her soft curls which she sweeps up into a retro updo.

Her makeup is complementary to her look, as is her champagne colour satin clutch, but we’ve seen this look on the red carpet before.

You may remember that Michelle Yeoh wore it to the Rome Film Festival.

Nevertheless, this look ranks in the top three of my favourites from her this year.

Kwiat jewels provide the finishing touches.
