On the road to becoming a cinema darling, Elizabeth Olsen is coming into her own — and about to make a splash at the Toronto International Film Festival. But when we caught up with her Wednesday at the Missoni for Target pop-up shop event in New York City, the talk was all about style — she is Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen‘s little sis, after all! Here’s what she had to say about shopping, her siblings and more:

Do you enjoy shopping? “I like shopping, but I have to be in a mood,” she told reporters. “I’m very lazy, I never return anything. I usually try to find someone else who’s going to want it.”

Do you have any design aspirations? “No, not at all.”

Have your sisters been role models for your own career? “It’s always 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,” Olsen said. “We don’t actually talk about work much, but they’re just great people and supportive and inspiring and creative.”

Do they give you guidance on dressing? They tell her “to always feel comfortable,” she shared.

Who are your style icons? “I always love Diane Keaton and Katharine Hepburn.”
