Elizabeth Olsen, 23, got a dramatic makeover for the Fall 2012 issue of Bullett magazine. Mary-Kate and Ashley’s sister sports a pink wig for the magazine’s “romance” theme.
We already knew that Lizzy could pull off the no-makeup look flawlessly, so it’s nice to see her dolled up in fantastical hair and makeup. Strangely enough, she’s not even the first Olsen to go pink — Mary-Kate’s been known to let her locks enter magenta territory a few times.
But don’t think the New York University student was looking to play off her sister’s success in any way. Elizabeth has established herself as a fashion figure in her own right with some pretty edgy red carpet style. And anyone who’s seen her eerie performance in “Martha Marcy May Marlene” can agree that she’s applied this same fervor to her acting. Elizabeth talked to Bullett during the filming of “Very Good Girls” about her diligence:
“There’s definitely a reason why I went to so many acting conservatories. The more I trained, the less people could say, ‘Oh, she’s just so-and-so’s sister.’ They can still say that, sure — I have no control over that — but at least I know I’ve worked hard. There was definitely a time when I overcompensated, but I’m kind of over that.”
Even though we can’t help but associate her with Mary-Kate and Ashley (owning every VHS they ever made pretty much signs you up for a lifetime of devotion), we think Elizabeth is well on her way to establishing quite the acting — and style — career for herself. Check out her cover and a couple more shots of her with pink hair below. Do you think Elizabeth will continue to set trends like her older sisters?
I love her. I think she’s incredibly talented, and she’s beautiful to boot!
