Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are probably the most famous twin fashionistas out there. The gorgeous twins just turned 27, and my loyal reader/fabulous sister gave me an idea to write this post on the chicest twins.
Let's reminisce a little... The Olsen twins, just like we knew them. Either from Full House, their legendary movies or their nick tv show, am I the only one that feels I grew up with them?
For this years Met Gala, the twin fashionistas opted for vintage Chanel and Dior.
Mary Kate (left) wore a Chanel Haute Couture gown and a Balmain jacket, the perfect bohemian outfit. While Ashley (right) wore a vintage orange Haute Couture Dior gown -that looked a lot like a huge orange tunic.
Long drapey dresses, their own designs, everything they wear suits their bohemian effortless chic style...
Currently, the fabulous Olsens have two fashion brands: The Row and Elizabeth and James.
In 2012 they won the CFDA Womenswear Designers of The Year for The Row.
Mary Kate and Ashley started The Row, their couture label named after Savile Row, in 2006. And one year later, in 2007, the twins started Elizabeth and James (named after their other two siblings), a brand.
A video introduction to the fantastic, chic and minimalist The Row:
I loved what they wrote on their Elizabeth and James mission statement, citing a perfect contradiction:
They perfectly complement one another in a beautiful contradiction. Elizabeth's uptown sophistication and feminine detail is paired with James' laid back, downtown edge and masculine tailoring. Individually, each would be incomplete. Together, they are striking in perfection. For Elizabeth and James, the magic is in the mix.

Some of the many Hollywood ladies that love Elizabeth and James.
The Olsen's future project is a collaboration with Sephora, they will launch an Elizabeth and James fragrance.
Influence is a book by Mary Kate and Ashley, where they compiled everything and anything that inspires and influences them. They compiled everything from personal pictures to interviews with famous fashion insiders.
Some polaroids from the book Influence with fashionistas like Karl Lagerfeld, Terry Richardson, Diane Von Frustenberg, etc..
Are you a fan of the Olsen twins? What do you think of The Row and Elizabeth and James?
I love their bohemian-laid back style, they always look super chic and fashion ready.
