The Week's Best Dressed Star: Elizabeth Olsen

It takes one seriously killer dress to trump the Duchess of Cambridge in the fashion department. But Elizabeth Olsen did just that this week.

The actress stepped out in a pale gray-and-pink striped leather Dior design Monday night at the Liberal Arts screening in New York City. She accessorized with olive-green sandals, Joan Hornig earrings and rings by Melinda Maria and J/Hadley.

Her look was so chic that 13,000 PEOPLE StyleWatch readers gave it top honors over Kate’s purple-print Prabal Gurung sheath worn to a Jubilee tour event in Singapore.

And though the young star has proven she has a great sense of style, don’t expect a fashion line from her anytime soon.

“I would never want the responsibility of putting stuff out there for other people,” she tells PEOPLE. “I think it’s the most brutal business that exists.”

Elziabeth Olsen: I'm 'Never' Going to Become a Designer

Elizabeth Olsen is only making time for one show this Fashion Week — can you guess whose it is?

“I won’t be doing too much,” she told PEOPLE Wednesday night at the launch of Yoko Ono’s Swarovski collection in New York City. “But I’m obviously going to go to The Row show.”

Though she has an in with the designers — big sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley — she still has a hard time deciding what to wear. “It’s funny because [The Row] is more casual, but it makes me even more anxious because I’m the sister.”

Luckily, she has a closet full of chic threads. “I’ve been wearing [my sisters'] hand-me-downs and designs since I was 5,” she shared.

Olsen has come into her own as a burgeoning style icon in the past year, stunning on red carpets and at film festivals all over the country. And though she’s happy to play dress-up, she doesn’t have any design aspirations.

“I would never want the responsibility of putting stuff out there for other people,” she admitted. “I think it’s the most brutal business that exists.”

The self-assured style star, who wore the line’s “boyjean” and Film Noir pumps, chatted about denim with Madewell’s head of design, Kin Ying Lee, and posed with a few fans.

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?

London Fashion Week So Far: Mulberry, Burberry and Lots of Star Power

While those of us in our east coast office are still recovering from New York Fashion Week, our British counterparts are busy stylespotting all over London for — you guessed it — London Fashion Week. Here, read up on the latest from the chic shows and star-packed front rows:

Mulberry

Mulberry celebrated another “monster” hit when its latest collection showed at London’s Claridges on Sunday morning. Greeting front row attendees such as Michelle Williams, Elizabeth Olsen and Olivia Palermo were two giant yeti creatures standing guard over the catwalk — and guests’ seats were covered in shaggy goat hide, too.

Inspired by Maurice Sendak’s book Where The Wild Things Are (with English boarding school references tossed in), the collection was a mix of delicate lace and printed dresses teamed with chunky Mongolian fur jackets and shaggy gilets. Models were sporting the latest Mulberry bag, the Del Rey, named after singer Lana Del Rey, who sat front row with her white ostrich leather bespoke edition (and performed at a private dinner later that evening). The show closed playfully with The Muppet Show theme song.

Though stars like Palermo are fashion week veterans, actress Olsen confessed to being a newbie. “This is my first Mulberry show and my second fashion show ever,” she told PEOPLE beforehand. “I have no real reason to go to them. But I’ve heard Mulberry is quirky and fun so this is really exciting!”
