Speaking with Ashley was more like chatting with the president of a business . . . we talked executive stuff: licensing, retail strategies and how the merchandising and branding business has changed since the Olsens launched Dualstar over 15 years ago. Our conversation lasted about 25 minutes before someone on her public relations team jumped in.
My conversation with Mary-Kate was shorter and a bit more frantic . . . She talked about going into Robert Lee Morris’ studio and playing dress-up with his couture pieces. I asked her how she felt about fame. “I don’t know how to answer that question.” It wasn’t long before someone cut in.
