Chic hopped the F train to Sons of Essex, the charming southern boite yet-to-be-opened in the Lower East Side, for a down-home din din sponsored by Nylon and Armani Exchange. The late night soiree was hosted in celebration of the pub's October cover girl, Elizabeth Olsen, and the brand's 20th anniversary limited-edition chrono watch. "Lizzie" was joined by Nylon EIC Marvin Scott Jarrett, Nylon publisher Jaclynn Jarrett, A|X President and CEO Harlan Bratcher, Twilight hottie Xavier Samuel, and Ashley and Mary-Kate, who wined and dined with their little sis all night. Adorbs! 

First things, first. Who calls you Lizzie and who calls you Elizabeth?
Everyone calls me Lizzie. My contractual name is Elizabeth, so people who haven't met me yet will call me that. I let teachers call me that too. 

What's your new-found fame like?
It's been exciting because it's all for good things. It's for a movie [Martha Marcy May Marlene] that I'm really proud of. I'm interested for the people who don't go to film festivals to see it.

Did you hear that Stefano Tonchi thinks you might get an Oscar?

I can't even think about it. It's so not my world. It's not real.

What has your paparazzi experience been like?
I never get followed. No problems. I don't think New Yorkers have a problem--that's what it is. I hope it stays that way. 

What's a milestone that you'd like to hit in your career?
I'd love to do a Woody Allen movie! Annie Hall is my favorite.

J'adore your Nylon cover! Are there any other glossies you'd like to front?
I don't think in that way. I loved working with W.

What about Vogue?
I'd love to be on the cover, but Vogue is more of a fashion magazine whereas a magazine like Vanity Fair has more to do with movies.

If you were Vogue's newest cover babe, what would you wear?
Something from The Row. I want to wear my sisters' clothes as much as possible because I really believe in them.

What other designers are you coveting these days?
I'm loving Erdem, Chanel, and Celine. I just started getting clothes sent to me, but they're usually things that are for people who are, like, a size 25. 

Where's your dream crash pad in New York City?
Somewhere in the Lower East Side, like the corner of Stanton and Clinton. I used to live on Stanton, on the corner by the tapas place. I miss it.

Would you ever get your real estate license renewed?
No way! It's so random that I have it. I hope I'll never need it!
