Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in The Row – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were in New York City on Monday (June 5) to attend the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards, where they were nominated for Womenswear Designer of the Year and Accessories Designer of the Year.

Fittingly they both wore their line, The Row. Ashley wore a sweeping black button-down coat whilst Mary-Kate opted for an over-sized shirt, pant combo.

Sticking with their classic colour palette of neutrals and black and white, the fashionistas showed just how far they’ve come. Gone are the days of bohemian overload, the girls have refined their style and given it a luxe edge.

Whilst I wasn’t convinced by Ashley’s formless coat/dress, Mary-Kate’s look was utterly chic. The oversized menswear-inspired shirt, with exaggerated cuffs, looked crisp when paired with wide-leg navy pants.

I loved Ashley’s wine-coloured clutch, but Mary-Kate’s was uninspired.

Their other styling choices were better. Beachy undone waves looked feminine and effortless; a beautiful contrast with their masculine looks.

2015 Met Gala Roundup

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

A flurry of even more bold names descended on red carpet of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), where their colourful variety of looks only contributed to this year’s fashion extravaganza.

Anna Wintour
: As the gala co-host, the ‘Vogue’ editor-in-chief dressed thematically (for her, anyway) in a Chanel Spring 2015 Couture gown featuring dimensional, all-over poppy embroidery, which had been lengthened from the runway’s original shorter version. She should have maintained her signature cap sleeve, as the flower petal statement shoulders translated as a bit cumbersome, despite their inherent artistry.

Bee Shaffer: Like her mother, Bee also found inspiration in flowers, opting for a mahogany blossom gown by Alexander McQueen. I much preferred this look to Anna’s, especially with the enchantment of the beautifully embroidered Chinese cranes that alighted down the back of the dress.

Get The Look: The Olsen’s Radiant CFDA Fashion Awards Beauty Look

2014 CFDA Fashion Awards - Arrivals

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen receiving the Accessories Designer of the Year for their brand The Row during the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 2). While the accolade was enough to keep the twosome glowing, it was celebrity makeup artist, Ana Marie Rizzieri’s expert beauty work that truly made the Olsen’s skin radiate.

Using an array of Elizabeth Arden skin and beauty products, Ana created a look that accentuated each sister’s natural beauty all while exuding the timeless and chic look they’re known for. The final results featured warm tones and fresh luminous skin.

Here’s how you can recreate this covetable Olsen beauty look yourself:

Skin: To ensure a flawless makeup application, properly treating the skin is essential. Mary-Kate and Ashley’s skin always looks picture perfect and this event was no exception. After cleansing, skin was prepped with Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum and Prevage Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum. To combat chapped and rough lips, Ana applied Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream to lips.

Face (complexion): For the perfect radiant base, Ana applied Elizabeth Arden Flawless Perfectly Nude Makeup in Alabaster to their skin. She followed by highlighting the under-eye area with Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector in Shade #1. For added radiance, gently dab Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Cool Radiance Highlighter above the cheek bones, down the bridge of the nose, and middle of the forehead.

Cheeks: On Ashley, Ana chose Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Radiance Blush in Terra Rose for a delicate and pretty flushed cheek whereas on Mary-Kate, Ana opted for Blushing Pink. For a touch of warmth, both women had a final dusting of Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Summer Escape Bronzing Powder in Warm Glow.

Mary-Kate’s Eyes & Lips: Both Olsen’s wore radiant, warm toned shadows to highlight their eyes. Ana primed Mary-Kate’s lids with Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector and followed with a generous dusting of Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Sandstone. She then applied Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Define and Highlighting Eyeliner Duo in Golden Sands from the top lash line to the crease as well as the bottom lash line. For a brightening and widening effect, Ana applied the pearl end of the liner to the inner corners of Mary-Kate’s eyes. For a more dramatic and smoky look, Ana blended Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Cinnamon into the crease. To finish the eyes, lashes were curled and coated in Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing Mascara in Black. A coat was also applied to the bottom lashes which gave the look a bit of a 70’s edge. Although naturally full, Ana defined Mary-Kate’s Brows with Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Natural Eye Brow Liner in Brunette.

For that natural rosy pout, Ana swiped Elizabeth Arden Summer Escape Beautiful Color Gloss Stick in Pink Sky.

Ashley’s Eyes & Lips: Ana began by priming the lids with Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector and layered Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Glisten as a base color. For contoured eyes, Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye shadow in Truffle was blended into the crease. Ana then applied Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Define Highlight Eyeliner Duo in Castaway along the upper lash line and smudged it out for a smoky effect. The shimmering blush-toned end of the Castaway liner was applied to the lower lash line and layered the chocolate shade on top. Ashley’s lashes were curled and coated in the same mascara. Ashley’s full brows were defined with the same brow liner used on Mary-Kate as well.

Due to the more dramatic eye look, Ana opted for a nude pout on Ashley. To create the lush lip, Ana lined and filled in the lips with Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Precision Glide Lip Liner in Honey. She topped the lip with Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Golden Nude.

Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen In The Row – 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

2014 CFDA Fashion Awards - Arrivals

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 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.
