Elizabeth Olsen: You 'Have to Use a Stylist' in Hollywood

When Elizabeth Olsen first came on the scene, she wasn’t quite ready for everything that came with red carpet appearances. “I had no clue [what to wear], and I didn’t even like to wear dresses to begin with,” she tells FASHtrack. But now, “it’s fun, like playing dress-up.”

That “fun” with fashion comes courtesy of “so-cool” celebrity stylist Cher Coulter, who also dresses stars like Kate Bosworth and Sienna Miller. “You literally have to use a stylist,” she says of life in the spotlight. “There’s no way you can figure it all out … Whatever you wear is like a huge statement out to the world.”

Describing her style as “schoolboy meets Faye Dunaway in Network,” she lists Alexander McQueen and Proenza Schouler among her favorite designers. But she also wears pieces from her sisters’ line, The Row, too. “I love all their jackets and their spring 2012 collection,” she reveals.

And while she may be relying on others for a bit of style help, she’s obviously doing something right; Olsen was one of just a few actresses at Chanel’s recent on-an-airplane runway show, receiving the invitation from Karl Lagerfeld himself. “It was my first big show and it was so cool,” she shares. “I’m a big fashion fan, so I really enjoyed it.” Tell us: What do you think of Olsen’s style so far?

oh please that is such a lie not all stars need or want a stylist telling them what to do. Vanessa Redgrave for instance doesn’t use a stylist and always looks immaculate.
