If you’re used to seeing Elizabeth Olsen in long, red hair and a Scarlet Witch headpiece, her look on the Emmys 2021 red carpet may have come as a surprise.
The Wandavision star and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series nominee was decked out in a dress from The Row — better known as the label owned by her sisters Mary Kate and Ashley. But even though her tailored cream sheath has quite the pedigree, Olsen’s gorgeous blunt bob stole the show.
Her hair was lifted just off her shoulders and parted to one side; if I had to put a number on it, I’d guess it was freshly cut within an hour of her debut on the red carpet. It’s a deceivingly simple cut, perfectly executed and shaped to show off both her gown’s neckline and her diamond drop earrings.
What matches with elegant hair? Elegant, classic, no-frills (well, no visible frills, but it’s an award show, people) makeup. The pops of color in her overall look came only from her berry lip and matching blush.
It’s only fitting that Olsen, who posed as various sitcom stars throughout history on Wandavision, would continue to honor her Hollywood forebears with a sophisticated red carpet look. And best of all, now that she’s shown she can pull off classic elegance on the carpet, she’s free to start experimenting. Mary-Kate and Ashley, we can’t wait to see what you have in store for your sister for the Emmys in 2022.
