Mary-Kate Olsen In vintage Chanel & Ashley Olsen In vintage Gianfranco Ferré & – 2014 Met Gala

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen attended the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

While their kid sister Elizabeth Olsen opted for a summery hue, Ashley and Mary-Kate worked a dark colour palette.

As you know, I have probably never been a fan of their style, but on this occasion I found myself not shouting ‘next’ upon seeing Mary-Kate’s striped vintage Chanel gown and Ashley’s military-inspired Gianfranco Ferré.

Neither was unnecessarily oversized and both accessorized perfectly, with Ashley just edging out as my favourite here as I favour the sleek design.

My one wish, as always, is that they would stand apart on the red carpet so we could get a good look at their frocks.

    I never like what they wear but I like these looks. Also I think you have them mixed up, Mary-Kate is in the stripes.

      Yes, that is definitely Mary Kate in the stripes.

    • Charlotte May 6, 2014 at 14:49 #

      Yes, Mary Kate is in the stripes.
      I like Ashley’s dress. Mary-Kate’s dress is not working on her and I don’t like the clutch.

    Yes MK is in the stripes ! I j’adore them but I understand they are not everyone’s cup of tea !

  3. Alina May 6, 2014 at 14:40 #

    Surprisingly, I like both looks.

    I used to be obsessed with their red carpet and candid style. However, they’ve been slipping the last few years and making horrible choices. So I’m really happy to see them back at their best here!
    Both look amazing! This is how you take a risk without looking silly…so many people that attended this event (including their sister) need to take note…

    You’ve got them mixed up, Mary-Kate is wearing the striped dress and Ashley the plain one.

  6. Pedro May 6, 2014 at 14:57 #

    I really like both!

    Mary-Kate looks amazing!

  7. Yeliz May 6, 2014 at 15:08 #

    Boring looks.

    Ashley looks great! That dress fits her wonderfully and I love the styling. The big pearl drop ear rings and clean ponytail were perfect to modernize it. I don’t like anything about Mary-Kate’s look which is unfortunate because I think the dress is probably actually very elegant.

    Ashley’s look is ok

  10. justme May 6, 2014 at 15:52 #

    As usual, I’m more into Ashley’s look. I wouldn’t wear but it suits her style.
    MK looks old :/

  11. John May 6, 2014 at 16:01 #

    They are not aging very well or is it just their horrible makeup.

    • ami May 6, 2014 at 18:17 #

      was just about to say the same. MK looks older than my mum here and My mum is in her late 50s. The contouring was off, her hair also needed to be soften in the hair line.

  12. H May 6, 2014 at 16:10 #

    They both look great when it comes to their clothes, but Mary Kate looks unhealthy or old or something.

  13. Agnes May 6, 2014 at 16:14 #

    No to the oufits and Mary-Kate looks like she’s 50 or something. Just no.

  14. amy May 6, 2014 at 16:53 #

    Ashley looks nice. MK’s face is frightening.

  15. arwa May 6, 2014 at 17:12 #

    You know best, but I think the stripped dress MK is wearing is the Ferre one. And Ashley is wearing navy Chanel dress. i’m only assuming this by the designs (lines and fabric).

    • Jasmine May 7, 2014 at 16:32 #

      Yeah you are right! Ashley is the one is vintage Chanel. The writer got them wrong. Loved Ashley’s look!

  16. arwa May 6, 2014 at 17:15 #

    Oh yeah, and I like what Ashely is wearing. I think it’s very appropriate considering the theme of the exhibit this year.

    I think Ashley looks spectacular. It’s so unique and it suits her style. Well done.

  20. pinksugar May 6, 2014 at 19:21 #

    Ashley looks divine. MK looks as old as her fiancee.

  21. Parvati May 6, 2014 at 22:45 #

    As always, I hate Mary-Kate’s look. Ashley’s is much better.

  22. Lou May 6, 2014 at 23:48 #

    Yikes! I want to focus on the fashion but I can’t take my eyes off how old they both look here – especially Mary-Kate. The first thing I did after seeing this photo was Google their ages – they are only 27… shocking.

  23. jj May 7, 2014 at 18:45 #

    you mixed up the girls dresses
    Mary-Kate’s was the striped vintage Gianfranco Ferré and ashley’s was the vintage chanel

  24. EmmaWoodhouse May 7, 2014 at 18:56 #

    Not a fan of MK’s look, but Ashley looks probably the best she ever has.

  25. beta May 8, 2014 at 20:42 #

    They were some of my favorites. Both dressed separately are real examples of great workmanship and quality. The striped dress in particular, I’m obsessed with it!
