Everyone knows about Mary-Kate and Ashley, the twins who rose to stardom while they were still in diapers on the television show Full House. But now there is a third Olsen on the scene: Elizabeth. Although she is three years younger than her twin older sisters, she could easily pass for an identical triplet. This is especially apparent in the photographs that she took with Mark Abrahams for V Magazine. She’s got the same wide eyes and the same porcelain skin. It’s actually hard to imagine that these aren’t photographs of a slightly younger Ashley or Mark-Kate. While she has previously differentiated herself with brunette locks, these new photographs show her with much fairer hair.
While this young lady may have grown up in the shadow of her twin sisters’ uber-stardom, it seems that she may be making a name and a style image of her own. She was recently nominated as the “New Ingenue” by actor Chance Crawford and has movies that are scheduled to come out in 2011 and 2012. The young Ms. Olsen had some experience appearing in productions that featured her older sisters, but since then she has attended Moscow’s Art Theatre School and seems to be making her own way.
Ms. Olsen also seems to be making her own way in terms of her style. While Mary-Kate and Ashley have literally branded their own style, it seems that Ms. Olsen may be breaking a bit with the looks that her sisters have established. The older twins are known for on-trend, urban, irreverent looks. But it seems that the younger sister is drawn to looks that are less trend-oriented and more ethereal. It will be interesting to watch this new “ingenue” and to follow her personal style. One has to wonder if she will begin a new fashion empire of her own.
