Elizabeth Olsen: I don't know fashion

Elizabeth Olsen isn't "very good" with "designer stuff".

The 22-year-old actress is the younger sister of fashionistas Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, but isn't very clued up when it comes to high-end fashion.

Elizabeth's profile has soared thanks to her role in independent drama Martha Marcy May Marlene, but she insists her fashion credentials haven't followed suit.

"I'm actually not very good with all this designer stuff," she admitted to Refinery29. "I just know basic ones."

Elizabeth has had some stand-out designer looks though. The stunning star favours labels such as Marni, Céline, Isabel Marant and Carven.

The beauty has described one of her favourite looks of late.

"I wore an orange floral Proenza Schouler dress that I was, like, obsessed with to the W magazine pre-Golden Globes party," she revealed.

Elizabeth insists her effortlessly cool look is not a result of her older siblings. Despite being designers, Mary-Kate and Ashley don't help with Elizabeth's wardrobe.

"I don't live with them, and they don't dress me," she explained. "Like, I'm an adult!"

Elizabeth admits to raiding their closets in the past thought. However, her taller frame soon put an end to clothes-sharing.

"I used to do it a lot more, but I've overgrown them by a lot," she smiled.

"I overgrew them in high school, and then all of my friends started getting their hand-me-downs."
