mary kate: the modern-day marie antoinette?

>> Mary-Kate Olsen, so-called “fashion pauvre,” has been outed.  Yeah, we might be a little bit obsessed with MK, but this here is big news.  Everyone’s favorite bobo chick is not getting the majority of her clothing from vintage and thrift stores, but rather from up-and-coming NYC designers Mark & Estel.

Recognize their holey loose tank? It sells for $98 - now that's a pretty penny.  Our psychics tell us MK bought it in fuschia.

And we know you recognize that scarf she never takes off – it’s Suzanne Juul’s eternity scarf, which retails for $160.

Or you can get the lightweight version for spring - it's $75.

Or how about Mark & Estel's ripped pants, which sell for $99. 









So what are we supposed to believe?  Basically, we’ve taken up the idea that the Queen of Bobo is a new-age Marie Antoinette – how appropriate that Marie was the princess of Bohemia. As she matured, Marie Antoinette became less extravagant and tried to change her image by wearing simpler gowns – sounds like someone we know, eh?  Too bad it seems to cost just as much to look like you don’t care what you wear as it does when you do.
