VOGUE does a double take, Mary Kate & Ashley as two of the best

Olsen VOGUE does a double take, Mary Kate & Ashley as two of the best

With all the buzz this year surrounding the Middleton sisters, sometimes one can’t help but wonder what all the fuss is about. Their style appears mostly plain and structural; not a lot of fun in their wardrobe. Luckily, we can still count on Vogue to see though the belted work dresses and trenches. In their annual Best Dressed issue, on stands tomorrow, they’ve announced a different set of girls as the year’s most fashionable sisters: Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. All is still right in the world. The twins’ two lines, The Row and Elizabeth & James, have been wildly successful, and they practically invented Homeless Chic – you can choose to thank them for that if you want, or just chalk it up to a lesson learned the hard way. “We were called eccentric and eclectic,” the 25-year-olds tell Vogue “But we were just two California girls trying to dress for the New York winter.” After feeling the winds in NYC last week, we’ll let that one slide. They’ve come a long way, earning their first CFDA nomination this year.

In addition to beating out Kate and Pippa, the also topped Beyonce and Solange. Dakota and Elle Fanning came in at number 2.

Do you think they made the right decision? Or should have another set of sisters earned the top spot?

Olsen Twins Expand Fashion Empire with New Online Shop

MK and Ashley Olsen Olsen Twins Expand Fashion Empire with New Online Shop

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are further expanding their already huge empire by entering the e-commerce arena with a new fashion venture. WWD reports that America’s favorite twins are launching StyleMint, a fashion site that will work the same way as jewelry site JewelMint, started by fellow-actress, Kate Bosworth, and her stylist Cher Coulter. Based on the idea of a monthly club, registered members of the site will receive personalized recommendations that will get even more specific as their purchase history expands. Members will also fill out style quizzes so that the site can tailor their purchase suggestions. Additionally, the site will use major social media platforms, like Facebook and Twitter, so that members can share and garner opinions from friends and followers.

StyleMint’s first collection will include a range of 8 T-shirt styles, in a choice of solids and stripes. Each T-shirt is set to retail at $29.99, a real steal when comparing it to the Olsen’s higher-end line, The Row. The Olsens, who are said to be “helping” to design and merchandise the line as well as creating videos for the site, are hoping to branch into sweaters and knits later on.

Ashley told WWD, “Online commerce is the perfect medium for us to create a new brand that is as much about the clothing as it is about the customer experience.” The other twin, the one with the more hipster style, also known as Mary-Kate told WWD, “With StyleMint.com, Ashley and I have created an online experience reflecting our love of style and allowing us to engage with our customers directly, which is an inspiring new way for us to think and create as designers.”  StyleMint is scheduled to launch this upcoming July.  If StyleMint’s selection is anything like The Row or Elizabeth and James, there is a whole lot to be excited about.
