Talk about a fashion flashback!

Elizabeth Olsen was spotted looking perfectly retro on Monday in New York City, where the Martha Marcy May Marlene beauty filmed scenes for her new movie, Kill Your Darlings. Liz is playing Edie Parker, the first wife of renowned beatnik writer Jack Kerouac.

The actress donned a white dress and a black pillbox hat on set, and fit so well into the era that we had to double-check to make sure we were actually in 2012. The star-studded project also includes Daniel Radcliffe, whom we saw on set a few weeks ago dressed up as his character, controversial beat poet Allen Ginsberg.

So who’s playing Jack? Newcomer and Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston. If that last name sounds familiar, it’s because Jack is the nephew of Anjelica Huston.

Kill Your Darlings’ description reads:

“A murder in 1944 draws together the great poets of the beat generation: Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs.”

What do you think of Elizabeth’s look, and will you see this movie?

The beatnik generation seems to be an upcoming trend in films. Kristen Stewart and Garrett Hedlund will star in an upcoming adaptation of Kerouac’s book On the Road. Check out that trailer below:
