I Got You Babe


The controversial (to some) Olsen October has come to an end and I’m kind of sad because it was such a fun month/project. And I really loved my Olsen header.

Mary Kate & Ashley are my true favorites and fashion icons and I had the best time looking through thousands of their pictures and making all the mood boards, collages and posts.

So to keep the Olsen spirit alive in Überchic, from now on I will feature in the sidebar Olsen Watch with their latest trendsetting looks.

And for this post I’ll leave you with pictures of MK & Ash together because, really, what would one be without the other?

“It’s not the usual thing for celebrities of any age to actually have style, personal style, that is unique and individual and achieved on their own. But the Olsens, love it or hate it, do have style; they have it in buckets. While they have stopped with the corny matching outfits, their looks have developed as jarring mirror images of one another; they still exist in a little world of two. But there are subtle differences: Mary-Kate might wear ten kooky rings, Ashley just two or three.

Their signature look mixes Edie Beale with Balenciaga, Johnny Depp, and John Galliano. They don’t wear clothes that are conspicuously slutty or sexy or easy to predict. Even though supermarket tabloids condemn them to worst-dressed lists, fashion people are obsessed with their arms-open embrace of the industry’s avant-garde. They experiment with proportion and silhouette. They mix vintage and new, labels and non. They’ve raised accessorizing to a form of high, glamorous art. If the Olsens’ style resembles anyone at all, it’s not Lindsay Lohan or Mandy Moore or any of their other presumptive peers—they dress like sittings editors at French Vogue.”

Oh no! I was loving all the Olsen news and pictures.

It was a good month.

Kate said...

I don't always like what the twins wear coz they look like they simply put on their blankets or curtains BUT I give them credit for being inventive. They march to their own style beat - and that is a good thing coming from ones so young. We have too many clones around these days.

I love the Olsens! I have to admit that there are times that I don't like their outfits but nobody can say that they don't have great style!

Although the MK & Ashley book signing rules are ridiculous for me....I am still buying the book. haha...I love a great book that has amazing pieces and I completely agree. They just glam it up and make pieces look so fresh. Love your pics!

Divinity Avenue said...

Hah! I secretly (or not so much secretly) love them...

atelier said...

if they weren't together, they wouldn't be what they are today. I like their style, but I think lately they are loosing a bit of their influence in trendsetting...

I like a lot your post on male fashion. And the cozy wool cardi looks great!
