Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

Elizabeth Olsen attended the 2012 Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, California this evening.

The ‘Best Female Lead’ nominee was a vision in white, wearing an Antonio Berardi Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

Her white sheath dress with floral crystal overlay was one of, if not the, best look of the night.

We’ve seen Elizabeth dabble in minimal before, most notably in looks from The Row, but this comes with added sparkle.

Cesare Paciotti shoes, an Edie Parker clutch, Joan Hornig earrings, and Melissa Maria rings accessorize the look.

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.”

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 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.

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.

Do you like Elizabeth’s more fashion forward choices?
