Why we love Miss Elizabeth Olsen.

Elizabeth Olsen is fast becoming one of favourite starlets. Impeccably dressed with a love for casual luxe and vintage inspired gowns, the gal can act too. As she graces our cinema screens this weekend in In Secret and Godzilla we decide to take a look at her fashion history and remind ourselves why we love her.

Olsen first came across our radar with her breakout performance in the creepy indie thriller Martha Marcy May Marlene. Portraying a young woman fresh from escaping a cult and struggling to adapt to the outside world, every critic going found her performance immediately compelling. Her ?arrival? was announced with a series of nominations and wins at various award ceremonies like the Spirit, Gotham and Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards. If ever there was an indie darling?

Olsen is also an unlikely action heroine. While her early CV is peppered with coming-of-age dramas like Liberal Arts,the 25 year old actress is set to become an Omniplex princess. This weekend she’s starring opposite Aaron Taylor-Johnston in Godzilla and next summer joins The Avengers: Age of Ultron ensemble as the Scarlet Witch. Taylor-Johnston joins her again playing her brother in the sure-to-be box office smash.

Out this week is also In Secret, which may go some way towards keeping her feet in the indie camp. Based on Emile Zola’s Th’rese Raquin, Olsen stars as a young woman in 1860s Paris trying to escape a loveless marriage to Malfoy (Tom Fenton) by embarking on an affair with Llewyn Davis?(Oscar Isaac).

Her entrepreneurial sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley, named one of their fashion lines Elizabeth and James after their younger sibling and older brother. Olsen shows her family loyalty by stepping out in their accessories every now and then.

Olsen didn’t trade on her family name when starting her acting career proper. She enrolled in New York University’s?Tisch School of the Arts and even spent a semester studying in Moscow. For two summers during college she worked as a real estate agent.

Her fianc? is Boyd Holbrook and the two actors have been together since 2012. They met while filming?Very Good Girls and became engaged last month.
