Joined at the hip, Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen (I hope I got that right because I still can’t tell them apart) attended the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 2) in New York City, with both wearing black oversized pieces from The Row.
Ashley Olsen: Opting for a modest kitten heel, her all-black look was styled with a silver layered necklace and emerald-stone earrings.
Mary-Kate Olsen: Opting for a high pair of black satin and pvc lace-up Christian Louboutin ‘Nymphette’ sandals, her look is almost the same as her sister’s, except for the material and the split sleeves.
One day I will get the fascination, but until then *shrugs*
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.
The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic took place on Saturday in Jersey City.
Last year’s event was so well turned out with stars wearing summery LWDs, but this year there was just a mishmash of looks, with not all seeming to befit the occasion.
Dree Hemingway: The model donned denim overalls, channelling her inner mechanic. She did style the look well with a Sophia Webster ‘Hold Me Speech Bubble’ leather clutch and platform heels.
Camila Alves: It’s been a while since we saw this style of Herve Leger dress on the red carpet. As beautiful as the TV host looks in this yellow-hued dress, all I can think about is Heidi Montag, who used to wear these dresses religiously.
Ashley Olsen: No surprises that the designer wore an oversized vintage look. While I do find myself liking this gold-embroidered red kaftan, which she styled with The Row accessories and Hermes shoes, a belt and some heels would’ve improved the look.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld: You may instantly recognise Julia’s Dolce & Gabbana floral frock. That’s because Lea Seydoux wore it last week during Cannes Film Festival. Julia styled her look with green wedges and a white Dolce & Gabbana bag. This is the only look I liked at this event.
Don’t be surprised that the Olsen twins opted to go vintage and oversized at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening; after all, this is their red carpet M.O.
Ashley Olsen: The designer’s beaded orange Dior Couture dress with a sheer overlay is a beautiful design, but for some reason made me think of one of Andre Leon Tally’s capes.
Mary-Kate Olsen: This look was my least favourite of the two; her Chanel beaded, drop-waist black dress would’ve been so much better without the fur-trimmed robe.
Which Olsen look works better for you?
Ashley? Mary-Kate? Or none-of-the-above?
One wonders if the words; belt, or waist-nipping mean anything to these girls.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen sported their favourite glued-to-the-hip pose on the red carpet last night for the WSJ Magazine ‘Innovator Of The Year’ Awards held at MOMA in New York City.
Both were decked out in clobber from their recently presented The Row Spring 2013 collection.
Ashley wore a black V-neck dress with pleated panels, adding colour to her look via her burgundy The Row bag.
She opted for free-flowing wavy tresses and barely there makeup.
Mary-Kate wore a sleek navy suit featuring tapered pants and a tailored blazer with a softly draped waterfall front accented with baubles.
She styled her look with a black sequin bag from The Row, Cartier jewels and a topknot.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were spotted as they left lunch at Cafe Cluny in downtown New York yesterday afternoon.
It appears that even in adulthood, the twins can’t stop dressing alike.
Both wore black coats, black pants, black tops and shades but Ashley opted for Balenciaga sneakers while Mary-Kate donned black boots.
They also have the same taste in arm candy as they both carried their ‘Day Luxe’ alligator tote from The Row.
Ashley opted for this expensive bag in blue, whereas Mary-Kate completed her all-black head-to-toe look carrying the black version.
You can buy Mary-Kate’s blue The Row tote from Net-A-Porter International.
