Elizabeth Olsen is obsessed with her older sisters’ style choices
The 31-year-old actress is the younger sibling of acting twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and has said she was so fond of their wardrobes when she was younger that she used to raid second-hand stores for similar items just so she could be like her older sisters

She said: “Everything my sisters have ever worn in my entire life I have wanted to wear still as an adult today. I want their coats. I want their shoes. I want their dresses. And that is something that I never grew out of.

“And so during that time, I myself was just going through every second-hand store and wearing all of, all of the things, except mine became more like Annie Hall-y. It was all just like a lot of clothes that I didn’t even wash them after I got them.
“I just wore them. I guess it’s like, and now I’m just like mortified of like, you know, where were those clothes like most of them are like thrown into trash bags and thrown into bins and, and I would just not wash them.”
And whilst Elizabeth has always wanted to dress like her sisters, the ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ star also explained where she differs from the twins, as she said Mary-Kate and Ashley don’t share her same love of theatre.
She added during an appearance on ‘The Jess Cagle Show’ on Monday (11.01.21): “My sisters didn’t love being on live theatre. They didn’t love live audiences. They were pretty shy and it made them nervous.
“I was the one that was like made everyone come to see me perform a musical that we made within two weeks and they had to see three of them every summer. They have to go to every dance performance … it was always unique to me that I loved theatre and dancing and singing.”
