For last night's Fresh Air Fund's Salute to American Heroes in NYC, sister duo Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen styled up two chic takes on cocktail attire in black and white, respectively. While both opted for dresses from their own The Row label, each took her own approach to outfitting standout evening ensembles. Mary-Kate stepped out in a kimono-style black sheath, complete with a sash at the waist. She played up the drama with a few strategic add-ons, like her emerald cocktail ring, jewel-drop earrings, and croc-embossed clutch, also by The Row. Meanwhile, Ashley played opposites in a fitted and textured white sheath, which she finished with slingback pointed-toe pumps and an armful of gold bangles. Each makes a case for dressing up classic cocktail attire with beautifully unique accessories. Feeling inspired? Shop our editors' picks to channel the same eclectic glamour.
Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen were together last night to attend the Fresh Air Fund's Spring Gala at NYC's Chelsea Piers. The Olsens were among the celebrities being honored by the organization, which raises funds to send underprivileged city kids to Summer camps upstate. Also receiving an award was NY Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz. For the special occasion, Ashley paired her Manolos with a dress from The Row. Mary-Kate also repped their brand in a The Row frock.
The night of philanthropy followed an evening of fashion. Mary-Kate and Ashley, creative directors of the shoe company Superga, celebrated the opening of the company's first NYC store on Wednesday. Their many adventures out on the town come as news of Mary-Kate's new relationship emerges. Twenty-five-year-old Mary-Kate Olsen is dating Olivier Sarkozy, the 42-year-old half-brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
It's not every day that we see Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen out, so it was a nice treat when the fashionable sisters showed up to an event in NYC last night. Ashley wore a white halter The Row dress with rosette detail cascading down the front, while Mary-Kate opted for a silky black dress also by The Row. But it was their fashion-forward accessories that really made their looks. We especially love Ashley's gold bracelets and antique rings and Mary-Kate's The Row crocodile bag and funky wedges. Zoom in on their accessories to draw inspiration, and then shop similar pieces to add pizzazz to your dress collection.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen linked up last night to celebrate the opening of a Superga store on NYC's Crosby Street. Along with Steve Madden, the Olsens are seeking to popularize the designs in the US. Mary-Kate and Ashley are creative directors of Superga, to which Madden owns the North American distribution rights. Both Mary-Kate and Ashley accessorized with Supergas last night. The girls were in a festive mood for multiple reasons. They're up for a womenswear designer of the year award at Monday's CFDA Awards thanks to their work for The Row. Also, Mary-Kate's apparently got a new love in her life. Twenty-five-year-old Mary-Kate Olsen is dating Olivier Sarkozy, the 42-year-old half-brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy. The new couple apparently spent Memorial Day weekend together in the Hamptons.
We've come to rely on Mary-Kate Olsen for her affinity for the daring and the dramatic. Tonight at the Met Gala she delivered just that in a black floor-length gown from her own The Row collection. It may have been minimalist, but it wasn't boring — the gown had a kind of kimono-like silhouette with a satin sash fashioned at the back. To add interest, Mary-Kate added a silver chain-mail satchel and gold jewel-drop earrings. What do you think of Mary-Kate's eclectic ensemble?
Mary-Kate Olsen chose a dramatic custom-made, floor-length, black The Row gown for her grand arrival at tonight's Met Gala in NYC. MK and Ashley are a staple at the annual event and often pose together on the dramatic staircase prior to heading inside to mingle with fellow designers and stars. This time Mary-Kate was on her own and actually caused a bit of a stir when she arrived at exactly the same time as Kanye West. Last year, MK wowed in a bold, crimson vintage gown, but this year she went with a bold design from one of her own lines. Things are just getting started at the Met so check back throughout the night, and tomorrow, for a comprehensive look at all the dresses. For now, be sure to vote on Fab's Met Gala fashion polls and tell us what you think of Mary-Kate's latest look.
Mary-Kate Olsen was out and about in NYC today for a solo shopping trip, leaving one store with a heavy-looking box. The designer wore a black quilted-leather jacket, a printed scarf, and pink oxford slip-ons for the outing. Mary-Kate was just on the cover of April's Elle UK to chat about her high-end fashion line The Row that she started with sister Ashley. In the magazine's pages, Mary-Kate showed off her personal style, for which she is known, and opened up about other celebrity fashion lines. She said, "Of course we knew about the trend of celebrities as designers, but we'd done that already when we were much younger. I don't understand the new idea of designers as celebrities either. To me, the Phoebe Philo [Celine designer] kind of modesty is the way to go. We love beautiful things. That's the only driving impulse."
Celebrity trends may come and go, but we are thrilled to see the denim shirt holding steady among Hollywood's hottest. Every celeb has her own way of wearing the trend, and we particularly love how these 17 stars worked the basic fashion staple. Channel your inner fashionista by styling denim on denim like Kate Bosworth, balance a pair of darker bottoms with a denim top like Taylor Swift, or layer a chambray blouse over a floral maxi skirt like Jenna Dewan. As you can see from these looks, a denim shirt is super versatile; it works well with everything. So step inside to see more celebs working the trend, then shop our favorite picks.
