Even though the Olsen twins — i.e. Mary-Kate and Ashley, for those of you who recognize they are two separate humans — are only seven or so years younger than me, I will forever think of them as adorable Michelle Tanner on “Full House,” forever slightly shocked to see them all grown up. Here they are, appearing on “Ellen” and promoting their two new fragrances, looking and talking like poised, cool, smart, stylish adults. Mary Kate is engaged. To a FRENCHMAN. It’s like the Olsen twins are suddenly not only NOT children, but adults who are more responsible and mature and together than I am. WTF?
There once lived two sisters, born of the same magical egg, an egg which once belonged to the most powerful sorcerer in the kingdom. That sorcerer made a deal with the devil, and lost — and damned his magical egg daughters to a life of eternal opposition. Where one would have two names the other would go by just a singular moniker. Where one would date only sly young douchebags, the other would canoodle with the brothers of French presidents. And though they might come together over their shared love of pizza, the sisters Ashley and Mary-Kate were destined to always be torn asunder: One would represent the night, the other the light of day. Or something!
So this is what the Olsen twins — Mary-Kate and Ashley — apparently think constitutes a Halloween costume. The pair dressed up — with venti latte cups-as-light-sabers in tow — as part of a new Halloween-ie video for their T-shirt company Stylemint. Even with the helmets on, the sisters manage to convey a languid boredom and over-it-ness that we’ve come to expect from them. Remember, you can never be too rich, too thin, or too Vader-y.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen launched their new T-shirt line (like they ever wear Ts) Stylemint a few months ago, and this month, have brought celebrity stylist Sara Moonves in on the act to share her style advice with Stylemint fans. The creepiest part of the video? When Mary-Kate admits that she loves Sara because she “really gets our personality.” As in, one

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are the tiniest, richiest moguls. And for that, they can do whatever they want, which is apparently design and market a $39,000 backpack for their high-end fashion line, The Row. Why does it cost $39,000? It’s made of crocodile, and presumably comes with one of the twins tucked inside. That’s our guess, anyway. Here they are with another bag from their collection, along with sis Elizabeth. Don’t they look ready to suck the marrow from your lifeless body? [Fashionista] Keep reading »
This week, mini-moguls Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen launched Stylemint, their line of curated T-shirts. It works similarly to its sister company, Jewelmint, run by actress Kate Bosworth and stylist Cher Coulter, where members sign up to get exclusive pieces of jewelry sent to them each month. With the Olsen’s Stylemint, the tees will sell for an actually affordable $29.99 each, and the more you buy, the more specific your style recommendations will get. We are not big T-shirt wearers, so this doesn’t sound particularly compelling, but given the Olsen’s success with clothing lines Elizabeth & James and The Row, these probably won’t be your average tees. Would you bother buying tees online? Even if they’re curated by style icons Mary Kate and Ashley? [Stylemint] Keep reading »
So, it appears that Justin Timberlake and Ashley Olsen may be dating. “They are hooking up,” a bud tells Us Weekly. Apparently, the two have been seen together several times recently—at a “Saturday Night Live” after-party, at the Greenwich Hotel, at a polo match, and at two Broadway shows. Yes, this seems like an odd coupling—but I kind of like it.
After the jump, some things these two have in common.

“Some of our memories are shared. We don’t know what actually happened to whom. One of us was stung by a bee, but we can’t remember who, because we both felt it.”
– Mary-Kate Olsen on her trippy twin connection to Ashley in Vogue. When their shared brain reads Simone de Beauvoir, does only one of them have to read for the other to absorb it? My money’s on Ashley. She’s the smart one, right? I still always get them confused. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
