According to a profile of actress Elizabeth Olsen in the New York Times, Karl Lagerfeld recently shot the indie film ingenue for a coffee table book. We’ve already decreed her a rising style star, and all we have to say is, once King Karl photographs you, you’ve officially ARRIVED. The little sis to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (and the muse for their Elizabeth and James line), Elizabeth seems to be all over the place recently and for good reason. Her film debut in the upcoming indie drama Martha Marcy May Marlene is garnering crazy good reviews (and was a hit at the Sundance Film Fest), and she’s been slaying red carpets everywhere while doing press for the film.

She wore Alexander McQueen to the premiere and a Boy. by Band of Outsiders seersucker dress to the New York Film Fest. But what in Chanel blazers is this coffee tawk?! Elizabeth told the Times that she’d had a photo session with Monsieur Lagerfeld for an unnamed coffee table book and wore an “oversize classic Chanel tweed jacket,” but didn’t elaborate beyond that. Could Elizabeth be Karl’s new muse? We know he has a penchant for casting actresses and singers for ad campaigns, but this shoot sounds interesting. In the profile, Elizabeth is running late because the shoot with Karl apparently ran long, so perhaps there are are TONS of photos for, like, an entire book? We’re interlocking C’s intrigued…
