Elizabeth Olsen: I need a stylist

Elizabeth Olsen thinks you "literally have to" use a stylist when it comes to dressing for glamorous industry events.

The actress is styled by celebrity fashion expert Cher Coulter, who dresses an abundance of super-stylish stars including Kate Bosworth and Sienna Miller.

Elizabeth rose to fame in critically acclaimed film Martha Marcy May Marlene last year, and says she initially wasn't ready for the glamour of Hollywood red carpet appearances.

"I had no clue [what to wear], and I didn't even like to wear dresses to begin with. [But now] it's fun, like playing dress-up," she said in an interview with FASHtrack.

"You literally have to use a stylist. There's no way you can figure it all out Whatever you wear is like a huge statement out to the world."

Elizabeth looks to high-end designers Alexander McQueen and Proenza Schouler for fashion inspiration. She also wears pieces from her sisters' line The Row.

The 23-year-old star says her older siblings Mary-Kate and Ashley's fashion range has some great staple pieces for her wardrobe.

"I love all their jackets and their spring 2012 collection," she explained.

Elizabeth was a guest at Chanel's recent on-an-airplane runway show after receiving the invitation from the luxe label's creative director Karl Lagerfeld. The blonde beauty felt honoured to be included on the guest list.

"It was my first big show and it was so cool," she gushed.

"I'm a big fashion fan, so I really enjoyed it."
