You can always expect some stars to follow the Met Gala theme to a T. This year, the focus was on Comme des Garcons's Rei Kawakubo. Celebs like Rihanna showed up in elaborate designs honoring the designer, while other Hollywood starlets like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen veered from the path. The fashion icons showed up on the steps of the Met wearing their trademark bohemian looks. Think sheer lace, thick beaded necklaces, and an embellished, furry cardigan.
Although their outfits weren't the over-the-top Comme des Garcons pieces we've seen, they spoke to the twins' personal style. Both Mary-Kate and Ashley have always worn whatever they want — staying true to their chic, eclectic sensibility. The twins have always set the trends — not followed them — so it was no different on this special night. If they want to show up in boho dresses, they will. And with 100 percent confidence too. After all, that's what makes them true fashion icons.
