We almost lived in a world where Blake Lively and Leighton Meester didn't play our favorite Upper East Side besties.
The lame jokes, the lessons learned after every episode, observing John Stamos' natural progression into getting better looking by the damn day (Seriously, he made a deal with the devil.)--all of these things are why it's such a great show, but Michelle Tanner will always be the best character, and here is why.
So for THEIR 26th birthday, we give YOU 26 things you may not know about them.
Truth: I love looking at celebrity fashion. When I'm flipping through the pages of a tabloid, scrolling through a gossip website or reading InStyle, the first thing I notice aren't the glaringly provocative headlines, but the clothes that the stars themselves are wearing.
Mary Kate and Ashley? Yes, I’m familiar. Elizabeth Olsen? It seems as if EVERYONE is talking about her lately. But what about Trent Olsen? The older brother of the sisters remains a mystery. Was he sold off by the twins for only 50 cents? We thought so, but apparently he ended up being not for sale.
In elementary school, all the subjects are taught as brief overviews rather than extensive lessons. For example, we learn “Language Arts” instead of Humanities or Language and Composition, “Math” isn’t “Algebra” or “Geometry,” and “Science” is growing little plants in plastic cups rather than beating yourself over the head with a massive AP Chem book. But as kids, we had two courses in Social Studies: “Social Studies” taught by teachers, and “Geography” taught by Mary Kate and Ashley.
•Elizabeth is about to be my new favorite Olsen •We can't get enough pictures of Ryan Gosling carrying his dog •Why you should be asking him out •Ever pictured Blair hooking up with Dr. House? Now you can •We kind of love Sarah Hyland from 'Modern Family' and her outspokenness •TOMS shoes get the college treatment •How did Target screw up with Missoni sooo badly?
It seems like celebrities these days have to be Jacks (or Janes) of All Trades. If you're a singer then you're a dancer and if you're a dancer then you're an actor. Then comes the fragrance, and then, of course, the clothing line, the last of which can get a little creepy crazy. I mean, everyone remembers the Avril Lavinge era of hoodies and men's ties right? No? Just me.
I was browsing through your latest line, "The Row," and couldn't help but notice your $300 black t-shirts, your $900 LBD, or your absolutely ridiculous $35K leather backpack. I don't know if anyone told you this, but the only designer in the world who's allowed to charge more than $10K for a bag is Hermes.
I grew up wanting to be Ashley Olsen, and my stepsister was all for being Mary Kate. We had the matching pink and blue outfits on our family cruise, we fixed our hair the way MK & A would wear it...they were the sisters we wanted to be. Well at least on-screen.
Let's face is, style-wise, the Olsens often make some... er....unusual fashion choices, but usually end up looking incredibly chic in something that really, really shouldn't work. But does this outfit just cross over the line of odd?
I don't think much about Ashley Olsen these days. She is the CEO of two fashion lines (one that I am way too old to wear, and one that I am way too broke to wear), while Mary-Kate is the one who still occasionally graces us with her acting presence, and I hold her entirely responsible for the dirty hipster hobo-chic trend that has been around for far too long.
There are a lot of perks to experiencing Halloween as a college student, that’s a given. But remember Halloween as a little kid? When you looked forward to more than the drinking games and the slutty sexy costumes?
Plucking, waxing, and threading your eyebrows is far from an enjoyable process. Some might even go as far as to say it hurts like a bitch is painful. But it's worth it to many to get that perfectly arched, perfectly thinned out brow. But why? These gorgeous women prove that skipping out on the monthly (or in my case, weekly) upkeep and going for a more natural look is the way to go.
If I could raid any two celebrity closets, it would have to be Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s. (Actually, they probably share a closet so I guess I would only need to sneak into one, right?) Oversized sweaters (on top of more oversized sweaters), heavy rings that weigh down their fingers (all ten of them), the highest Louboutin heels and the brightest red lipstick.
