Elizabeth Olsen: I dress like Annie Hall

Elizabeth Olsen has described her style as like "Diane Keaton in Annie Hall".

The 23-year-old actress explained her effortless approach to dressing which helped her land a place on the Vogue magazine best dressed women list of 2012.

The actress likened her look to the mannish tailoring seen on the actresses who starred in movies Network and Annie Hall.

"[My dressing style is like] Faye Dunaway in Network and Diane Keaton as Annie Hall... or anything she did with Woody Allen in those clothes!" Elizabeth described to Vogue.

The star's breakout role in this year's movie Martha Marcy May Marlene put her on the fashion radar and this year, Chanel frontman Karl Lagerfeld personally invited her to his couture show.

The sister of The Row design duo Mary-Kate and Ashley has also proved she can pull off a variety of looks, such as a modern take on seventies glamour, with ease this year.

Also featuring in Vogue's new wave of style stars is 21-year-old Golden Globe-nominated actress Shailene Woodley.

This up-and-coming starlet's look is sophisticated, graceful and never too try hard.

"I'll never be the girl in tons of jewellery or make-up, I like things that are simple and make a statement," Shailene explained. "I'm not a black-dress girl, but I'm not that superloud, get-everybody-staring girl, either."

Another notable addition to the coveted Vogue list is 24-year-old model-turned-actress Cody Horn.

This year she's sizzled alongside screen hunk Channing Tatum in Magic Mike and Jake Gyllenhaal in cop thriller End of Watch.

This budding fashionista has got her look nailed, edgy tomboy chic that complements her short blonde hair.

"I've been introduced to a lot of new designers lately, and I'm learning that I don't have to wear Balmain every day to look how I want," Cody explained.

"I'm obsessed with my first leather jacket, it was the first thing I bought with my savings from modelling when I was fifteen, and I actually still have it."
