Let’s face it: When in our lives haven’t we been obsessed with Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen? Any ’90s babe worth her salt basically grew up on a diet of movies, books, and of course, Full House, all featuring the Olsen twins. Our tween selves had winners like Holiday in the Sun and Passport to Paris on constant repeat at all sleepovers, and obsessively shopped their Wal-Mart clothing line (#TBT).
Since then, the twins have moved onto bigger and better things, leaving behind their acting careers (RIP Michelle Tanner) in favor of starting two insanely successful fashion lines: Elizabeth & James and The Row. Aside from the $39k backpack incident, The Row, their more upscale fashion line, has been received insanely well by the fashion industry and fans alike, something not a lot of celebrity clothing lines have been able to accomplish. Not to mention the twins are two-time winners of the prestigious CFDA award for Womenswear Designer of the Year.
The Olsen Twins’ design chops show in their personal style too. For Ashley, this means a sleek, sophisticated look, while Mary Kate prefers a more flowy, bohemian approah – but both have never stepped out looking anything less than major-outfit-envy levels of chic. Oh, and no one, I repeat, no one, has mastered all-black the way the Olsen twins have. Still not convinced that the Olsens are the chicest celebs out there? Click on for proof.
