Mary-Kate and Ashley's 75-Year-Old Muse Is About to Become Your New Style Icon
Of course, we never suspected we'd be disappointed by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's fashion icon — the award-winning Olsen team is the chicest designer duo on the red carpet, after all — we just never thought we'd like her this much. When MK and A posed alongside writer and artist Beatrix Ost for Elle magazine, naming her their muse, we found ourselves intrigued by the 75-year-old style savant and wide-eyed over how well she wore her magenta silk turban.
Turns out, there's a lot more where that came from. We found Beatrix's feed on Instagram, which consists of vibrant #OOTDs, accompanied by a sprinkle of wisdom and, yes, a turban for every color of the rainbow. Read on for 22 reasons to get obsessed with the 75-year-old lady whom Mary-Kate and Ashley call "a fascinating, strong woman, with such effortless style. She embodies the spirit of [The Row]."
