Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen took home the ‘Womenswear Designer of the Year’ award for their line, The Row, at the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City yesterday evening.

I almost fell off my chair when I found individual pictures of the sisters.

As walking spokesmodels for their winning brand, both designers looked gorgeous wearing looks from The Row Resort 2013 collection.

Debuting a brunette look, Mary-Kate went for a darker look, wearing a long-sleeved black silk dress with a high-low hem.

The dress was accessorized with a statement Sidney Garber necklace and Louis Vuitton black suede peep-toes, plus a black The Row purse.

Ashley wore a rarely seen burst of colour, standing out in a violet silk dress with a simple ruffle running down the front.

Like her sister, Ashley accessorized with a black The Row bag, Sidney Garber cuff bracelets and Manolo Blahnik heels.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen attended the Fresh Air Funds Salute to American Heroes yesterday in New York City.

Both wore looks from their fashion label, The Row.

Ashley wore a lovely ivory halter dress from the Spring 2012 collection with a ruffled, textured detail cascading down the front.

With her hair pulled back into a simple bun, she styled with a Sydney Garber bracelet and Manolo Blahnik tan pumps.

Mary-Kate selected a darker look from The Row, teaming a black silk blouse with large blouson sleeves with a matching black silk skirt.

Statement jewels, Fendi colour-block sandals and a crocodile bag by The Row accessorized her look.

On this rare occasion I like both looks, but I wish they would stand apart just once on the red carpet so we can get a proper look at what they are wearing.

Blake Lively wasn’t the only celeb to attend the Christian Louboutin cocktail party at Barney’s New York last night; Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were also present to fete the beloved shoe designer.

As per usual, the twins stepped onto the red carpet wearing oversized ensembles. On this occasion they wore matching all-black outfits.

Ashley went for The Row Smashton leather leggings that she teamed with a tweed jacket and a long-sleeve silk blouse.

Of course her ensemble couldn’t have been complete without a couple of black Louboutin accessories: ‘Mikarani’ tassel loafers and ‘Loubis Angels Fringe’ shoulder bag provided the finishing touches.

Mary-Kate celebrated with the designer of the hour wearing pointed-toe leopard print ‘Dahlia’ Louboutin’s booties and a matching Christian Louboutin ‘Loubis Angel’ clutch.

She also wore leggings, but she paired them with a dress that hit below the knee. She finalized her look with a fur jacket that had quilted leather sleeves.

Overall, I’m not surprised or wowed whatsoever by their outfits because they dress this way over and over again.

I would love to see them dress outside their style box just once in a while.

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.

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.
