Lingerie Crush: Elizabeth Olsen

Lingerie Crush: Elizabeth Olsen June 25th, 2015 @ Amber Elizabeth Olsen is awesome. She’s a great actor, she carries herself with poise and she seems so fun and fashionable. She sings too. She doesn’t model lingerie, but she’s done a few great photo shoots that have some serious lingerie vibes about them. She’s gorgeous and she can rock a bra as outerwear like no one’s business. She’s become one of my new lingerie crushes, and when you see the beautiful, strong, and fashion-forward lingerie-esque photoshoots she’s done you’ll see why. This woman is on her way up!
