Ashley Olsen talked on her cell today as she left an NYC hotel wearing a pair of ballet flats and a button-up shirt. The designer, along with her sister and business partner Mary-Kate, has been stationed in the big city lately focusing on their many stylish projects. Their sibling Elizabeth, meanwhile, carries on the Olsen family's acting torch and recently brought her movie Martha Marcy May Marlene to the Cannes Film Festival. Ashley and Mary-Kate didn't join her on the trip but sent Elizabeth on her way with outfits from The Row to wear on the red carpet. Ashley and Mary-Kate's high-end line has been a financial and critical success, and they continue to expand their stylish empire with eyewear and the online-shopping venture called StyleMint. The driven duo also continue to support their fellow fashion folks as members of the CFDA and joined Diane von Furstenberg for the organization's biannual membership just last week.
