The Fashion Peacekeepers: Ashley Olsen’s Gothic Chic

Sometimes we feel like Us Weekly‘s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?

Fashion police, show us your badges. Ashley Olsen showed up to the Art of Elysium Gala in Los Angeles in this stunning Alexander McQueen gown and Manolo Blahnik heels. While the “experts” on the Fashion Police at E! consider this ultra bang on-trend look a fashion faux pas, we think she looks devilishly chic. Dark, raspberry lips are so in right now, and look especially fresh and elegant when paired with peachy-nude frocks. We think she hit the mark in this getup. Keep reading »

A Double Scoop Of Olsen Twin Style

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are selling their new clothing line for JC Penney, olsenboye, out of an ice cream truck parked in Union Square on a rainy, cold October morning. I don’t get it, but what the hell do I know? [New York City, 10/28/09] Keep reading »

Olsens To Design For JCPenney!

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have a long way since their days of cheap-o Wal-Mart fashions. And were it not for the serious success of their high-style line, The Row, the news that they’re now designing a juniors line for JCPenney might have been laughed off as lame mall trash. There’s little info on this JCPenney collaboration other than that the range will be called Olsenboy (menswear inspired, perhaps?). Sadly, a “juniors” line would mean that in order to fit into the styles, we’d either have to bring our 14-year-old selves back form the past, or lose some 100 pounds. Target, can you please sign these ladies up for a project? [NY Mag]

There’s also some highbrow news for the Olsens—this week the twins were inducted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), joining talents like Alexander Wang and Jason Wu. Well done. [NBC's The Thread Blog] Keep reading »

Where’s Women’s Fashion Going? Ashley Olsen, Isaac Mizrahi, And Robin Givhan Reveal All

Last night I showed up at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, to witness Washington Post fashion writer Robin Givhan and designers Isaac Mizrahi and Ashley Olsen participate in a panel discussion on the future of women’s fashion led by Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive.

With the economy stuck in a recession for more than a year now, the fashion industry has had to make some adjustments and even start new initiatives, like last month’s Fashion’s Night Out, to get people interested in spending again. So, what do these insiders think about where fashion is and where it’s going? Keep reading to hear what they had to say. Keep reading »

Oh you Fashion Police! You’re so … predictable. Of course they hate the way Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen look at this Opening Ceremony party in Japan and added them to their lineup, but we beg to differ. First off, let’s think of the context here: like it or not, Opening Ceremony is a hipper-than-thou avant-garde kind of boutique that’s all about experimental fashion. (If you don’t believe me watch this highly entertaining video starring Chloe Sevigny.) Second, this is Tokyo, where lots of young folk pop similar “fun” headgear on their heads the minute they step out of the office in the evening. Believe me, they just earned, like, 10 million cool points from their Japanese fan base. Thirdly, they just look downright cute. In summation, we’re pretty sure their inspiration was our recent post on how wearing animal ears is the hottest new thing. We called that shiz over a month ago. [E!] Keep reading »
