Elizabeth Olsen relishes the red carpet

Elizabeth Olsen thoroughly enjoys red carpets, as long as her shoes are comfortable.

The youngest of the Olsen sisters is enjoying huge success with her role as the Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

While many actresses may view promotional duties as a negative of the job, Elizabeth is happy to don a pretty dress and get out there - as long as she has the right footwear.

"If you asked me before doing these premieres I would have felt very uncomfortable on the red carpet but I don't know what changed, I'm having a blast now," the 26-year-old smiled to British newspaper Metro.

"I'm so calm and not really overwhelmed. Literally, if my shoes are comfortable, I'm in a really good mood."

Actually it's her sisters who are known as the style icons, with 28-year-old twins Mary-Kate and Ashley heading up their labels The Row and Elizabeth and James along with their collaboration with JCPenney, Olsenboye.

It's helpful having such fashionistas in the family, as they can always be called on for wardrobe help. One of Elizabeth's favourite pieces is a jacket from Mary-Kate but in true sibling fashion, she admits it might not have been a gift - she just kept it and didn't give it back.

A passion for clothing might be in her blood but when it comes to beauty, Elizabeth is very relaxed.

"I don't wash my face in the morning. I wash after sweating and then I don't really wear make-up when I'm not working," she shrugged. "At night I always wash my face and love skin products. I lay it on thick at night. I drink water, exercise.

"I'm not the best at wearing sunscreen because I never feel like I'm in the sun. I feel like I sit in the shade but I know I should be better at the sunscreen thing."
