“Lend Me A Tenor” Broadway Opening Night – Mary-Kate Olsen & Ashley Olsen

This weekend Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen attended the “Lend Me A Tenor” Broadway opening night in New York.

I’m sorry, but I struggle to take these two seriously as fashion icons.

I’ve never understood the appeal, and I don’t think I ever will with all due respect to them and their fans.

Despite Easter being all about Spring whites and fluffy bunnies the twins looked like they were on their way to a Tim Burton convention.

Although Mary-Kate tried to break-up her black gothic glam head-to-toe look with a white Proenza Schouler clutch, this look is still too dark for my liking – although Ashley dress with the bows is cute.

The biggest question is why did they need to wear those ridiculously big sunglasses at night?

30.03.10 In Her Closet

In Mary-Kate Olsen’s Closet – Celine Boston Tote

I’ve been toting around my Alexander Wang Coco Duffel bag for the past few months like Kristin Cavallari, but it’s time for a change.

The problem is but I can’t seem to find a bag in taupe or beige that I like for the summer.

As always I’ve been looking to celebs for inspiration and I’ve found myself lusting after Ashley Tisdale’s Fendi ‘Peekaboo’ satchel in beige, but most recently l’ve found myself loving Mary-Kate Olsen’s Celine Boston bag.

Yes it’s not quite the summery bag I’m looking for, but I do love a structured bag with plenty of compartments. It makes finding my oyster card and my blackberry so much easier.

This large tote is timeless and more importantly it’s great for carrying a lot of essentials.

Mary-Kate’s Celine Boston bag is available to purchases from Matches Fashion.

Runway To Sidewalk – Mary-Kate Olsen In Prabal Gurung

Petite Mary-Kate Olsen likes everything supersized, which is why she was spotted carrying two large bags as she was leaving her apartment recently.

One was a Balenciaga men’s duffle bag and the other a Proenza Schouler PS1 leather satchel.

The mini mogul can take the title of being the first to wear a look from Prabal Gurung’s Fall 2010 collection.

She wore a black and red drop shoulder cashmere wrap coat, but she opted out of styling her look like the runway.

She paired her look with Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toe canvas boots.

Gurung wakes up this morning as a CFDA nominee for Womenswear.

Fingers crossed he takes home the prize on June 7.

Runway To JCPenney’s Best Of Spring Showcase – Ashley Olsen In Jil Sander

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were in New York to attend the JCPenney’s Best Of Spring Showcase last night.

Mary-Kate wore a black slightly oversized Dries van Noten blazer as a dress, with a leather belt wrapped around her waist.

I like this look on Mary-Kate, mostly because it’s not 10 times too big for her.

Ashley also opted for a dark colour wearing a navy Jil Sander Spring 2010 belted dress.

On the runway this dress was presented with a skirt over a dress, but Ashley opted out of the skirt, but added sheer sleeves.

I’m not sure how you feel about Ashley’s look, but for me her modifications are a major downgrade.

I’m also disappointed with the black tights. Even I own a pair of navy tights.

I don’t get this at all.

Runway To 2010 Elle Style Awards – Ashley Olsen In Christian Lacroix Couture & Mary-Kate Olsen In Lanvin

Couture Award
Of course one of the Olsen twins had to wear a Couture and standout on the red carpet at the 2010 Elle Style Awards.

Ashley Olsen wore a modified Christian Lacroix Spring 2010 gown which had a very long train which she paired with Fendi heels.

Susie Bubble tweeted “Accidentally stepped on this gal’s long tulle dress”.

LOL at Susie for totally not recognising Ashley on the red carpet.

It was a big gown for Ashley, but for once she didn’t appear to be drowning in it.

Sister Mary-Kate opted for a black Lanvin ensemble with a black fur shrug.

Both were not in the mood for talking much, so her PR told us what they were wearing.

She said, “Ashley’s wearing La..Lacr..Lacro..” to which we all said in union “Lacroix” to which she laughed and thanked us.

The twins received the “Style Icon” award for their unique and individual fashion personalties, which they are clearly showing off here.

Runway To Sidewalk – Mary Kate Olsen In Lanvin

I’m not sure if I said this before, but when it comes to the Olsen twins I just don’t get the appeal.

I never have and I guess I never will.

When I see Mary Kate Olsen wearing this beautiful Lanvin Fall 2009 coat I feel physical pain.

Pain that she destroyed such a classic piece and made it look like she picked it up in the “get it before it goes” section and Topshop after it has been dragged through the store for half a season.

I don’t think I can look at this coat with the same affection after this.

The coat is just way too big for her and she’s way too short for it.

Her look is paired with a Balenciaga bag and Lanvin ankle boots.
