When it comes to fashion royalty there is none more talked about and fashionable as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen aka the Olsen twins.
Born in the world of show business the sisters have spent their whole lives in the spotlight, from their days in Full House to their tween movie empire and now to their emerging fashion empire, it seems as though there is no stopping the Olsen twins.
As the sisters have matured, they expressed greater interest in their fashion choices, with The New York Times declaring Mary-Kate a fashion icon for pioneering her signature “homeless” look. The style, sometimes referred to by fashion journalists as “ashcan” or “bohemian-bourgeois”, is similar to the boho-chic style popularized in Britain by Kate Moss and Sienna Miller.
Ashley style is a little more demure, sleek lines and pristine cuts combined with a little layering and a signature handbag. Very Chanel chic.
The Olsens have also launched their own couture fashion label, “The Row”, named after Savile Row in London. In 2007, they launched Elizabeth & James, a contemporary collection inspired by many of their unique vintage finds and pieces in their personal wardrobes. They have also released a women’s clothing line for J.C. Penney, called Olsenboye, and a t-shirt line called “StyleMint”.
