The Olsen Twins Are Real Grown-Ups Now And It’s Kind Of Freaking Me Out

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…

The Council of Fashion Designers of America bestows awards on new young talent each year and throws itself a major party. Last night was the big event, and designers and their fans turned out in droves to honor one another. And the winners are…

Enjoy My Fan Fic About The Olsen Twins

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…

Evening Quickies: Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen Voted Vogue’s “Best Dressed” Sisters

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen beat out the Fanning sisters, Beyoncé and Solange, and even Kate and Pippa Middleton on Vogue’s 2011 “Best Dressed Sisters” list. If I don’t have anything nice to say, I won’t say anything at all. Maybe I just don’t “get” high fashion. [Vogue.com]

The Olsens Channel “Star Wars”

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…

The Olsen Twins Share A Brain

“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…

Mary-Kate & Ashley Would Prefer To Be Invisible Designers

“[The Row] was something where we didn’t want our names on it. I even went as far as being, ‘OK, who can be the frontman?’ We can make the clothes and someone else can be the frontman’ … Instead, it was more about letting the product speak for itself and us being quiet. It’s five…

Ellen DeGeneres Gives The Olsen Twins A Huge Gift

Is it just me or do those sunglasses that Ellen DeGeneres gave the Olsen twins make their twins heads look small? [Community Live Journal]…

Mary-Kate And Ashley Been Hitting The Kool-Aid?

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…

Can Maxi Skirts Ever Work For Short Women?

As an individual who is faced with the dilemma of being vertically challenged — I’m super short, 5’1″ to be exact — certain fashion trends just don’t work for me. Pants are pretty much impossible and even if I liked the harem style, I can totally forget about ever looking good in them. In fact,…

Dream Job: Win A Chance To Design Alongside The Olsens For Olsenboye

Dear Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen,

Since I was 13, I’ve wanted to be your BFF. Sadly, you ignored my fan mail and repeated friend requests. And now, you’ve gone and given me the opportunity to make my way into your inner circle, but it’s too late! You’ve opened up a contest to your fa…

Olsens Do Denim—Hot Or Not?

The Row, Elizabeth & James, Olsenboye, acting, writing, being generally fabulous … It’s not as if Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen actually need to add to their already A-list resumes. But ever the ambitious businesswomen, we weren’t surprised to hear that they’d crammed another professional activity in. The fashionable twins are launching a small luxury denim…

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]…

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…

Is It Just Us Or Do Olsen Sunglasses Kinda Make Sense?

Usually, when celebrities come out with a clothing line or fragrance, it’s kind of ridiculous. Does Jennifer Lopez really need all those versions of Glow? But with the news that the Olsen twins are creating a brand-new collection of eyewear for The Row, we’re not exactly shocked. After all, the mini moguls basically wear sunglasse…

WTF? Justin Timberlake and Olsen Twins Join CFDA?

So, of course, being invited to join the CFDA, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, is the highest honor an American designer can achieve. Oddly enough, William Rast, Justin Timberlake’s clothing line, and The Row, from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, have both been inducted to the council. Is anyone else uber confused? We sorta…

The Olsen Twins Give Good Prune Face

Apparently, to get their signature pouty look, the Olsen twins say “prune” instead of “cheese.” Catherine and I decided to test this theory and, after many takes, came to a few conclusions:

1. They probably don’t say it out loud, because that is weird and it also would make any normal person laugh.
2.

Star Couplings: Beyonce And Jay-Z Tie The Knot

It’s official, sort of. Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z were wed in an intimate ceremony at a loft in New York on Friday evening. Though their reps have acknowledged that the event took place, everyone from the singers Destiny’s Child bandmates to Gwyneth Paltrow were in attendance. Oh, and everyone was instructed to wear ivory, a…

PETA Splatters The Olsen Twins With Virtual Red Paint

The marketing geniuses at PETA are at it again! This time the animal loving rabble rousers are going after Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen…make that Hairy-Kate and Trashley Trollsen. The group has dedicated an entire campaign and a MySpace page to tearing down the pint-sized twins for their habit of wearing and producing clothing made with…
