Elizabeth Olsen has already established herself as an up-and-coming actress and her latest foray into fashion in ASOS magazine pulls her squarely out of the shadows of her fashion icon sisters Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.
Olsen, 22, has two films showing at the Sundance Film Festival, “Silent House” and “Martha Marcy May Marlene.” She delivers stunning performances in both. She’s also become a favorite of Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld.
“When ‘Silent House’ and ‘Martha [Marcy May Marlene’ both got into Sundance, the producers were like, ‘We’re going to get her a place to stay, but it won’t have a pool and we can’t fly her first class. Is she OK with that?” she told the magazine.

“I was like, ‘What are you talking about?! They should see the apartment I live in!'” she added.
Ironcially, fashion was something she paid little attention to growing up despite her sisters’ big move into the business. “I didn’t know all this stuff before [last] year, but I thought I should probably become more aware, so I can have more of a say in what I wear,” she says.
Now though, fashion clearly has a place in her life. She already has favorite lables: Marni, Celine, Chanel and Isabel Marant. She’s also done work for Mary-Kate and Ashley’s popular label Elizabeth & James.
The Todd Cole photo shoot took place at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in New York for the March issue. She wears a silk blouse from her sisters’ line Elizabeth & James silk. Elizabeth wears eclectic prints and laid-back silhouettes.
