Fashion & Style: The Olsens – Glamour is Genetic!

Lizzie is channeling her inner Sissy Spacek this 70’s style, cream-colored sack dress, with long hair and dark lips. We’re not sure anyone other than an Olsen could get away with a look like this on the red carpet…but we’re glad someone is doing it!

The Olsen twins sure love their furs, much to PETA’s chagrin! Here Ashley pairs a (hopefully faux) maroon jacket with her spectacular tulle gown. A surprising—as always—and surprisingly chic combo.

The Olsen twins have long been fans of luxe, long dresses. Here, Ashley brings classic glamour to the 2007 CDFA Fashion Awards in a black tuxedo floor grazer. Her smoky eyeliner, slicked back hair, and white envelope purse complete this chic, European look.

Mary Kate was the originator of boho chic, and this outfit is a prime example. Nothing says bohemian goddess like tousled blonde hair with dark roots, a white drapey gown, piles of rings, and a velvet carpetbag.

If you’re going to hide from the paparazzi, you might as well do so behind an extremely expensive Louis Vuitton purse, eh Ashley?

Lizzie may look up to her big (twin) sisters, but girlfriend definitely has her own style. We’re loving the oranges and creams, sheer tops, and chunky ethnic jewelry. No wonder the twins named their fashion line—Elizabeth and James—after her classic, clean look.

This was one of the Olsen twin’s greatest early fashion moments. Ashley’s got on gorgeous gold Oscar de la Renta, and Mary Kate was just starting to rock the boho in her white hippie gown. Girls, if life was a fashion contest, you’d win—Olsen girls against everyone.

It’s black…it’s white! It’s an Olsen! Here Mary Kate wears a striking, silver-belted avant black dress. And how could we forget to take note of those signature Olsen red nails, or that awesome vintage clutch?

The Olsen twins are fashion mavens because they boldly go where other, less fiercely fashionable folks dare to tread…like into the realm of outrageously poofy, white sleeves, for example. Jack Sparrow’s got nothing on Ashley.

Here’s Ashley in another high drama, monochrome shape. The train on this modern looking dress is just delicious—as is Ms. Ashley.

Coats! Hats! Bags! Oh my! We sure wish we could raid the Olsen twins’ closets for their many fabulous vintage and designer accessories—don’t you?

We’ve gotta hand it to the twins—they sure know how to channel Old World drama when they dress. Here they are in fabulous vintage jackets. Can you say Sunset Boulevard?

A lot of people said Ashley looked like the corpse bride in this decadent, curtain-like gown, but we love the high drama of it. That stain of wine lipstick and the messy hairdo make her look like she stepped out of a Faulkner novel.

We love it when the Olsens rock twinning garb. Here, Mary Kate is the gothic Lolita to Ashley’s exotic angel, with both girls encased in tulle-frosted, revealing mini-dresses. Luckily, good legs run in the family!

There’s a lot of juxtaposition on both of these outfits, but they work. The combination of sheer dots with green fur and grey is high fashion, and fun.

Is glamour genetic? Lizzie Olsen just may be living proof that it is. We love this Roman style gold belt paired with that cute peek of leg on her black dress.

The Olsen twins never shy away from compelling shapes when they dress—and they accentuate them with minimalist coloring. Here Ashley stuns in a swingy, white coatdress. Her glittering gold clutch and trademark Louboutin heels are the perfect accessories for this runway-worthy look.

Mary Kate is considered the more eccentric Olsen darling. This complicated, layered gray dress would make even Helena Bonham Carter jealous.

This bright orange, structured dress was probably originally designed for a woman in her 50’s, but the Olsen babes like to rock power woman outfits like nobody’s business.

Is that Mary Kate, or Goldie Hawn in the 1980’s comedy film Overboard? Either way, we adore this extra luxurious gold gown, with its sexy slit. However, a trip the tailor to make sure the dress wasn’t going to fall off might have been a good call, MK.

The twins aren’t the only fashionistas in the Olsen family. Lizzie Olsen is the It Girl of the moment, with two new films about to be released. Here she is looking like a fresh-faced, 70’s model in printed Missoni.
