“I’d love to get Michelle Obama in The Row. The simple suits and things. It’s all made in America, so why not?”
– Ashley Olsen isn’t satisfied with just Charlize Theron and Jessica Biel wearing her fashions on their backs. Ashley has her sights set on a bigger fish — the first lady! Michelle Obama isn’t above wearing an emerging designer, so Ashley just might get her wish. [StyleWatch] Keep reading »
Mary-Kate Olsen blasted her “Full House” childhood in a new interview with Marie Claire, saying she and twin sister Ashley Olsen were “little performance monkeys.” MK, who has scarcely talked to the press since she was publicly connected to the death of her friend Heath Ledger in 2007, told the magazine, “I would never wish my upbringing on anyone … I look at old photos of me, and I don’t feel connected to them at all.” Apparently, the feeling is mutual. Her sister Ashley also told Marie Claire, “I look at Britney and I’m surprised I didn’t end up like her.” (Sorry, Brit.)
Quite sad to think that all those cheesy made-for-VHS movies made them billionaires, but it hasn’t made them happy.

Whoa there, Mary-Kate and Ashley! What’s up with the Rainbow Brite attack? We’re not sure why the Olsens are going around with these cherry red and neon yellow locks, but it definitely brings us back to our teenage years when changing your hair color was the only form of rebellion your parents couldn’t truly hate you for. (Not that that stopped us from getting stupid tattoos and piercings.) Back in middle school, my friends and I would streak our hair with Kool-Aid, preferring to highlight in red a single hanging lock near the front of the face. Problem was, we became so addicted to Kool-Aid color that it sometimes temporarily turned our hair gray from over-dying. On the more extreme end, I once came home from a trip to see my sister in L.A. with a head full of cherry-red hair, courtesy of Manic Panic.

We’re fans of most of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s forays into fashion. The Row makes us drool, Elizabeth & James consistently offers cool stuff at not-horrific prices, and we’ve even come to appreciate Mary-Kate’s particular brand of boho/hobo chic. Even so, we can’t get behind the glasses they’re launching in November. They look like the ugly child of Coke bottle glasses and aviators, and we can’t imagine them having many friends on the playground. The lenses are too light, the frames are super heavy, and the shape of the aviators is just a touch off. We’re not in love with the cat-eye style either, but we can see them looking decent and appropriately retro with the right outfit and face. Thoughts? [Elle UK] Keep reading »
Ashley Olsen beats us to the question at last night’s opening of “Lend Me A Tenor” (starring Ashley’s beau, Justin Bartha). [NYC, 4/4/10] Keep reading »
As kids, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen played one person — Michelle Tanner — on the TV show “Full House,” so it was a given that they’d dress identically back then. But these days, the sisters have perfected the art of coordinating outfits so they look similar but still distinctive. At JCPenney’s spring fashion show Tuesday night (left), the Olsens both put on short, belted dresses in dark colors. Last month, they attended the Elle Style Awards in London (right) sporting fur jackets on top of short dresses with long tulle overlays. The two probably figure they’ll be photographed together and might as well look good together, which isn’t that much different from calling up your friends before a night out to plan what you’re wearing. Do you coordinate outfits with friends so you’ll complement one another? Keep reading »
