Last week I was walking past the newsstand outside Liberty (it’s one of the best in London) when I instantly stopped in my tracks. Why? Because I spotted an Olsen. Elizabeth Olsen covers the September 2013 issue of Dazed & Confused, and the cover really stands out against all the other glossies this month. The 24-year-old actress was photographed for the magazine by Angelo Pennetta and models a Miu Miu coat on the cover. At first I was surprised they hand’t shot the instantly-recognisable polka dot coat for the cover, but that pale pink Miu Miu design made it into the editorial instead.
Elizabeth Olsen spoke to Dazed about her upcoming film releases: Very Good Girls, Therese and Oldboy. In Very Good Girls she stars alongside Dakota Fanning and was directed my Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s mother, Naomi Foner. And in Therese Elizabeth plays “sexually repressed beautiful young woman trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin”. The film is based on the Émile Zola novel, first published in 1867, and Tom Felton (aka Draco Malfoy) plays the sickly cousin.
Do you like the Elizabeth Olsen Dazed & Confused cover? Are you pleased to see Elizabeth score a September cover?
