Mary-Kate Olsen In The Row & Chanel: Ashley Olsen In The Row – 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards

The Row Fall 2011 Bag Red Carpet Debut Award
The Row was nominated for the 2011 “Swarovski Award for Womenswear” at the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City last night.

Mary-Kate Olsen wore a black skirt by The Row with a Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 shimmering gold jacket – which typically looks a few sizes too big for her.

Gold strappy Louis Vuitton sandals and Cartier jewels completed her look.

Ashley Olsen’s look was simpler, as she wore a custom The Row blue dress with Manolo Blahnik heels and a Cartier jewels which included a scalloped motif necklace.

You’ll notice that the twins were showcasing bags which are from The Row Fall 2011 collection.

This is the first time we’ve seen the bags on the red carpet. I love how they appeared to make the bags the main focus.

You can view the whole bag collection on The Row Facebook page.

The price point of their bags according to Harper’s Bazaar is $5,450.

Ashley & Mary-Kate Olsen – 2011 Met Gala

Call me Cruise, but I actually didn’t hate the Olsen twins at the 2011 Met Gala.

My usual first reaction is to roll my eyes at these two, but they didn’t look homeless on this occasion and their looks weren’t ridiculously oversized.

Ashley Olsen wore a romantic vintage Christian Dior gown with puffy sleeves and a thigh-high slit.

She accessorized with Judith Leiber Guilloche clutch, navy Christian Louboutin Pigalle’s and Van Cleef & Arpels jewels.

Mary-Kate Olsen also wore a vintage dress.

Her red and green vintage Givenchy Couture is beautiful. I can see myself wearing something like this.

She complemented her gown with Judith Leiber Flip Top clutch and Van Cleef & Arpels jewels which include a stunning emerald ring.

Ashley Olsen Channels Fall Trend During Spring

Whilst most of us are packing way our winter clothes, Ashley Olsen is still working a Fall 2010 trend which was an oversized sweater over a maxi skirt.

This trend was spotted on the Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors Fall 2010 runways, plus Dries van Noten did a short sleeved version of this look.

The Olsen twins are notorious for shielding themselves away from the paparazzi, so this is a rare carefree shot of the designer as she heads off to a meeting in New York City on Tuesday.

Her beige sweater and mint maxi skirt were paired with Chanel accessories including a string of pearls, a quilted blue bag and two tone ballet flats.

Ashley Olsen & Mary-Kate Olsen In The Row – CFDA Fashion Award Honorees Announcement

Last night many fashion folk gathered for the announcement of the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards which was held at Diane von Furstenberg’s studio in New York City.

The Olsen Twins were nominated in the ‘New Talent Award’ categories alongside celebrity favourite Prabal Gurung and Joseph Altuzarra.

As you know I don’t get the Olsen twins and I’m not ashamed to admit that, but on this occasion I love what they are both wearing (very rare).

Ashley looked stunning wearing an off-pink The Row Pre-Fall 2011 suit with gold Manolo Blahnik pumps.

Mary-Kate who usually looks like a bag lady, opted for a black suit and black blouse.

She accessorized with a Prada ‘Rosa Pitone’ and Louis Vuitton Spring 2011 heels.

They look equally good so I can’t pick a favourite. Can you?
