Elizabeth Olsen covers Bullett Magazine’s Fall 2012 “Romance Issue” as some sort of pastel/cotton candy ice queen in a feature shot by photographer Jeff Bark. In “The Charmed Life of Elizabeth Olsen,” the young actress talks about her latest acting gigs, why “being single is an integral part of learning to love oneself” and even confesses that she loves to wander the aisles of Super Walmart.“‘I can buy candles and crackers and medicine and underwear all in the same place?’ she says, in awe of the big-box megastore. ‘It’s like, What?’”
The images in the magazine are also kind of like, “What?” Some forum members loved them, while others… did not.
Psylocke posted, “I turn into a total girlie girl when I see lavender-lilac-pink overload, I love this,” she laughed. “The contrast of the opulent and edgy Balmain dress with the pastel hair and the light background looks especially great. I think the set design is really nice here. The editorial is so sugary sweet, beautifully styled and quite well done, and the cover is striking (but I wish the wig wasn't so awkwardly cut in the cover image).”
TeeVanity wrote, “Wows, Elizabeth looks great,” but others thought she could have looked better.
“I like the shot of her lying down, but aside from that… not a fan of the editorial,” saann assessed. “The wig is too atrocious.”
“Isn't it though?” BonesAndOil agreed. “I don't understand why anyone would think a chopped up wig (and in pink nonetheless) would ever look good. She's so naturally gorgeous, why ruin that?”
Did Bullett ruin Elizabeths natural gorgeousness, or is this editorial awesome? I have to admit, I’m kind of intrigued by these images, but I can't quite make up my mind.
