Elizabeth Olsen has recently pulled off a series of stunning red carpet looks, but yesterday the up-and-coming actress failed to impress in all white at a Hollywood event.

The porcelain skin beauty looked washed out as she arrived at the Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch wearing an ensemble of head-to-toe cream and white.

The 24-year-old's white ChloƩ shirt dress paired with a ChloƩ Spring 2012 blazer were on trend, but they just weren't the right hue for her complexion.

Elizabeth accented the outfit with layered necklaces, nude suede pumps and a white handbag with gold hardware and finished the look with her hair styled in a side bun and minimal make-up.

The youngest Olsen sister, who currently stars in the critically acclaimed drama Martha Marcy May Marlene was one of several stars to attend the gathering at the ultra chic and pricey BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood, California.

Too much of a good thing: While Elizabeth's outfit was on trend, it was simply too much white for such a fair skinned young woman


That's better: Elizabeth Olsen wore red to a premiere in Toronto in September and she donned yellow last week in Hollywood for the Critics Choice Awards

Other familiar faces at the pre-awards show gathering included Twilight actress Nikki Reed and Oscar winner Melissa Leo of The Fighter fame.

Also putting in red carpet appearances were Carnage actor John C Reilly, Antwone Fisher star Derek Luke and The Last Exorcism actress Ashley Bell.

The event was meant to help raise money for up-and-coming filmmakers.

Unusual choice: The Fighter star Melissa Leo wore an odd all black outfit paired with fishnet tights to the Spirit Awards Brunch Saturday

Howdy partner: Carnage actor John C Reilly wore jeans and a cowboy hat to the brunch

Dressed down: Antwone Fisher star Derek Luke went for a casual look while his wife Sophia wore a fun and flirty LBD

During the course of the brunch, the winners of four Spirit Awards filmmaker grants were announced with each received funding from Film Independent for future projects.

The 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards ceremony will be held in a tent on Santa Monica beach on Saturday, February 25, 2012.

Actor, writer and producer Seth Rogen will serve as host of the show which will air on the IFC cable channel that evening at 10pm.
