It's all about rising actresses for Miu Miu's most recent ad campaign, as it showcases the modeling talents of Elizabeth Olsen (who, considering her sisters are fashion mavens Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, is no stranger to designer labels), Elle Fanning, and 12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong'o.
Olsen (above photo) channels her inner 70's vixen with her poker straight hair and thigh high socks under suede boots. Elle (photo after the jump) strikes an awkward pose - is she going for demure or mysterious? - but pulls off the Miu Miu printed dress with yellow stockings and red shoes brilliantly. Lupita (photo after the jump) - in her first fashion campaign, mind you! - looks a little stiff but nonetheless striking in a beaded bustier top, navy skirt, hot pink stockings, and some seriously chunky white sandals.

Elizabeth Olsen "has" to have a stylist.
The Martha Marcy May Marlene actress - who is the sibling of fashion designer twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen - admits she is a big fan of fashion but requires someone to help her because she is aware everything she dons is a "statement."
"You literally have to use a stylist. There's no way you can figure it all out, especially when you are working on a film. Now whatever you wear is like a huge statement to the world. So you have to have someone help you figure it all out," she said.
Elizabeth uses Cher Coulter - who was voted one of the Hollywood Reporter's 2012 most powerful stylists - and she admits she enjoys clothes even more because of her: "I love clothes and my stylist Cher is so cool. I have a lot of fun with her. For a while I had no clue and I didn't even like to wear dresses to begin with. Now it's fun, like playing dress up."
Actress Elizabeth Olsen's style icons are Diane Keaton and Katherine Hepburn. The 22-year-old - whose sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen run their own successful fashion empire - sometimes gets advice from her fashionable siblings, but admitted her inspiration comes from the stars who are known for their tailored style.
"I always love Diane Keaton and Katherine Hepburn. "[Mary-Kate and Ashley always tell me] to always feel comfortable. Their advice is just like, kind of focus on your work and not let anything else come between you and what you want to do and who you are. We don't actually talk about work much, but they're just great people and supportive and inspiring and creative."
Although Elizabeth loves shopping, she admitted she sometimes finds it a chore and often gives unwanted clothes away: "I like shopping, but I have to be in a mood. I'm very lazy, I never return anything. I usually try to find someone else who's going to want it."
