Pairs Division: Olsen Twins in The Row

Posted on June 05, 2012

After winning the Womenswear Designer of the Year award at the CFDAs last night (no, really), Dark Olsen and Light Olsen share a moment of jubilant triumph:

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen attend the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards in The Row. 

Or not. It’s hard to tell.

Mary-Kate wore top, skirt and bag from The Row Resort 2013 collection accessorized with Louis Vuitton shoes and Sidney Garber jewelry.

Ashley wore dress and bag from The Row Resort 2013 collection paired with Manolo Blahnik shoes and Sidney Garber jewelry.

DARK OLSEN: Is dark. Everything looks too heavy on her and at least a size too large on her. The slightly smokey, slightly winged eye she’s been sporting lately does not suit her at all. She always looks like her makeup is smudged and/or like she just woke up. Both her bag and her earrings are too large for this look. Basically, Dark Olsen wants to look teeny-tiny, so she wears and sports things that are too big for her. The hair is pure fashion editor drag. It’s a terrible look. Score: 3/10.

LIGHT OLSEN: Is clearly the more conventional of the two, but that’s not saying much. Her makeup’s prettier than her sister’s, but she’s sporting granny hair. Also, that’s a sleeveless tent. And one cuff would have been enough. She’s a little better than her sister, but like her, she dresses as if she were much older and much bigger than she actually is. Score: 5/10.

Combined Score: 4/10. Just another in a long line of reasons why we’re never going to be invited to the CFDAs.

    Ugh, why do they always look so grimy? SHOWERS, ladies. They’re good for you. As is fitted clothing.

    • meowing

      And the makeup!  Today I bought sunscreen for my face, and first thing I made sure was that it said “not shiny.”  They should read the labels (or hire makeup people who can read for them).

        Someone needs to introduce them to matte makeup.

    Why are these girls so terrified of tailoring?! Or at least hemming your freaking skirt so you’re not tripping on it! UGH!

  • TheOriginalLulu

    You know, if they decided to do a sequel to The Shining with the kids all grown up, these two would be perfect to play the spooky twins in the hallway.

    • introspective

      why do these chicks always look so funereal? seeing their dour faces and their bad posture and baggy old lady clothes despite their having more money than God never ceases to prompt an eyeroll (or 5 in a row) on my end. cant take them. stop already.

      • yetanotherLaura

         Plus the really creepy way they always stand there facing each other with their boobs pressed together.  I’m sorry, that is just STRANGE.  These two have more than a few screws loose, IMO!

        • http://howtofaint.tumblr.com/ How to Faint

          I’m glad I’m not the only one creeped out by that. We get it, you guys spent a lot of time mashed together in the womb, but you’re free now! You don’t have to touch pelvic bones for us to remember you’re twins! 

  • http://www.facebook.com/AdriannaGrezak Adrianna Grężak

    I think MK’s clothing always reflects her body issues. 

  • cmb92191

    Dark Olsen looks a little like a dark haired drunk Chelsea Handler

    • demidaemon

      Yes, except Chelsea can dress herself better, and considering her number of misses, that is not saying much.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      isn’t “Drunk” and “Chelsea Handler” redundant? 

  • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

    I like Mary Kate’s handbag. I also like that Ashley is smiling. The rest is just Olsens doing a Jolie, really.

    • http://twitter.com/magdalenebloom magdalenebloom

      But it doesn’t look like a real smile…it doesn’t reach her eyes at all.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      I do believe it’s the first time I have seen one of them smiling. I was afraid they didn’t have teeth!

    • Elle Cobbett

      I think she may be the only person in the world who looks scarier when smiling. Besides the classic evil villain in b movies. 

      • http://twitter.com/TMamBo Therese Bohn

         At first I was happy to see an Olsen actually showing teeth and smiling, but with closer examination, she has the exact creepy smile and hairstyle of the evil mother in ‘Sybil’  (runs from room screaming)

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    Wait,…I’m still wrapping my head around these two wining any design awards at all, for any reason. Admittedly, their lines are successful, but that does not equate with being award worthy.

    • EveEve

      If that black dress is from the “Resort” collection, they must take their vacations at a resort somewhere deep in a cave in the mountains of Translyvania.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        If either outfit is their work, it must be from their “Depressives” line.

      • Little_Olive

        The Last Resort collection

        • Beef andfur

          I was trying to come up with something witty and snarky based on the the name, The Row, this however is brilliant and made me spit Arnold Palmer at the screen and possibly pee myself a tiny bit.  FTW. 

      • Call me Bee

        I hadn’t read the comments when I posted mine–but yes.  In the heart of Romanian Transylvania! 

      • Arelis Víctor Garro

        haaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahaha

  • schadenfreudelicious

    so what happens when they hit 65?..do they finally break out the leather mini’s, bandage dresses, and fishnets having spent their youth dressed like old (albeit glamorous) ladies….

    • TheOriginalLulu

      I think so. Too bad I probably won’t be around to see it.

    • meowing

      Oh, I do hope so!  Would be fun to see them turn out to me smiling, sassy seniors.

    • Melissa Brogan

       Oh, I’m just a little older than them. I should still be alive to watch them pull a Patsy Stone and Eddy Monsoon. Fab.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/2LIE6ISFQUBIAO7OB6U5TAVXXQ Depot'er

       ’when they hit 65′…..in actual years or maturity years or in creapy years?

      I get the impression they are closer and closer to 65 than to 18…. maybe a day = a year in their lives?

      • schadenfreudelicious

        ha yes, like in “Olsen years”

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    need powder.
    have dressed better.

  • Jessi03

    Light Olsen’s eyebrows are bothering me in that last picture.  She doesn’t look like herself.  

    • kimmeister

      I know!  I was like, where did those caterpillars come from?

  • ShivaDiva

    The Cylons have landed!  And they have a plan.

  • Joshau Norton

    I’m sorry, but they’re just plain scary looking.

  • Anathema_Device

    Oh god, that set up with the line leading into the first picture still has me laughing. You guys are too awesome.

    And the Olsens are the Olsens. They pretty much get a 4 out of 10 from me in all things.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/4KLZGI7NMQE2LQDYYSMPFXANW4 Uche

    A bath, plenty of food, and some well fitted clothes would work wonders.

       They both need to be force-fed large plates of pasta.

      • kryten8

         …’cuz I bet they’ll read this and go, “oh, PASTA?” then gain 10 pounds to make you happy.

          Oh, Jezebel. 

    • Kathleen Gillies

       A pair of jeans, a sweater and maybe a leather jacket and some cute boots–what is so hard about that?  They do know some tailors, don’t they?

  • MsKitty

    I always get a Grey Gardens vibe from these two.

    • GorgeousThings

      I didn’t see your comment before I posted mine, but I said the same thing. Definitely Grey Gardens!

    • TieDye64

      Always.

    • http://twitter.com/80nine CAMEЯON

      Little & little-er Edie for sure

  • Little_Olive

    Do they ALWAYS have to pose like they are joint at the hip and cannot take each other’s breath? Always the same moth, eyes, all.

    Aside from the smudginess, I am digging the new coloring in Dark Olsen. Light Olsen looks like she was allowed to leave her retirement home for a while. In her nightie.  

    • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

      More like joined at the pelvis. Which is even creepier.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Sierra-Delta/100003182924700 Sierra Delta

         I hadn’t realized until just now that the Olsens’ awesome superpower is the ability to be Siamese twins at will.

  • RebeccaKW

    Although, it is nice to see one of them crack a little smile, instead of always looking like they just sucked on a lemon.

  • MilaXX

    Yeah I saw this last night and knew it would be a grand old time here. For the life of me I do not get why the Olsen’s plain, over priced garments and granny bags sell like they do. I get clean lines ala Micheal Kors or Calvin Klein, but their stuff is just bland.

    • http://twitter.com/aStudiobytheSea a Studio by the Sea

      Frankly, I think it must be that for every size of pocketbook, there’s some celebrity line that a certain crowd has to follow like a pack of lemmings.  The high prices allow them to feel better and more exclusive in comparison to people who can only afford Jessica Simpson.

  • SewingSiren

    I agree their bags are too daytime for these evening gowns. I generally like the way these two dress. They obviously don’t care to show off their bodies in the short tight and/or shiny that a lot of starlets their age favor. Odd birds, effectedly odd probably, still I like ‘em.

    • Amy Ellinger

      Agreed. I actually kinda love these looks. It’s a beautiful color on Ashley, and one of the most fitted things I’ve seen on M-K.  They don’t have to wear tight and shiny- because they don’t have to count on scoring the hottest movie role- they worked their butts off and earned their money. 

      haha, and growing up on the set of “Full House” would warp any kid’s fragile little mind!!

    • FlamingJune1967

      I was beginning to think I was the only one who liked these two!  For women who had to grow up in a public spotlight, I feel their clothing choices are more an act of rebellion  – and I respect that. 

    • raeb23

       I also like that they do their own thing. I kinda dig Mary Kate’s look & Ashley’s cuffs, though I think her gown is just too shapeless – even by Olsen standards!

    • Elle Cobbett

      You are so right, I had never thought of it before. I don’t like the way they dress, but at least they don’t do the skanky slutty look at me I have boobs, starlet look. 

  • http://twitter.com/emilyf007 emily

    1. Shiny faces and 2. why do they always look so much older than they are? And so drawn? 

    • Glammie

      Smoking, maybe?  I was wondering the same thing myself–they’re both getting more odd looking.  The make-up’s  a bit too strong.  Think they’re also a little too thin , so their faces look a little drawn.

      Actually kind of like the purple-satin bag on the light Olsen.

  • yulaffin

    Ugly, shapeless dresses and even uglier bags.  That is all.

  • SapphoPoet

    I just don’t get these two. They have cute figures but always look like they wrapped themselves up in curtains before leaving the house. It’s as if they’re afraid of showing that they have bodies. 

    • formerlyAnon

      Not “as if.” While I like the way they dress, usually, I also think they have body issues.

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      At least one of them has a history of eating disorders, so I suspect that is the literal truth. I am pleased they are successful – shows that whatever bizarre child star stuff they went through can parlay into an adult career – but I always feel like they are uncomfortable being adult women. Anyway – I also like MK’s shoes.

  • Judy_J

    Why do they always stand as if they are joined at the hip?

  • ballerinawithagun

    Fabric and designs are actually gorgeous, but…the Dark is way too large, as always, and the Light is meant for a tall, willowy woman. For whatever reason, they are afraid of their own bodies. 

    • MilaXX

       residuals of the ED. I know only one was officially diagnosed, but they both always appear on the verge to me.

      • EveEve

        ED? Enlightenment please.

        • formerlyAnon

          Eating disorder. (clinically diagnosed)

        • MilaXX

          eating disorder

      • AnaRoW

        That was Mary Kate.  She has said that she covers herself so completely after receiving so much scrutiny of her body while struggling with anorexia. Ashley hasn’t revealed any such thing about herself nor shown any evidence of a disorder. I’m not sure how she appears to be on the verge. She’s small but she’s always looked to be a healthy weight.

        • MilaXX

          Yes but they both dress the part of someone with either and ED or body image issues. Perhaps I’m just reading more into the overall Olsen weirdness.

          • sekushinonyanko

             Like how Rachel Zoe hides in her clothes. I could see her in MK’s outfit.

          It seems that Mary Kate is carrying around enough baggage without my casting aspersions on her-sadly she sounds quite fragile.

        • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

          Ashley dresses the same in solidarity?

  • mom2ab

    Ya know the dresses aren’t half bad- I would love to see the black one on Jane Fonda and the purple one on Gabey Sidibe (really-no irony intended).

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

    At what resort does one wear a black satin bathrobe and clunky shoes?  It’s like the Addams Family goes to Bora Bora.

    • TieDye64

      I’d watch that.

  • Trisha26

    0/10 for me for both sisters. They simply look creepy, there is no other adjective. I don’t get them, their look, their appeal.

  • janetjb

    Why don’t they wear clothes that are a bit more fitted?  

    At this point I feel bad for them.

  • moppet

    I have a lot more sympathy for those two and the way they choose to swaddle themselves in 20 pounds of clothes each when I remember how various asshole writers and websites were “counting down” the days until they turned 18. I could be overthinking it, but I can’t help but see the way they dress as possibly an attempt to hold on to some shred of privacy and bodily integrity after a lifetime in the public eye. 

    • SewingSiren

      I think you are at least partially right about the reason they gravitate toward long loose dresses, but I doubt these dresses are heavy. The black looks like georgette and charmeuse and the violet is charmeuse too.

      • moppet

         My “20 pounds of clothes each” was more figurative than literal. I just meant that they wear multiple layers of figure-hiding clothes.

    • EveEve

      Then why do they constantly put themselves on public display?  They have more money than they’ll ever need in life; if they covet their privacy, they don’t need to keep showing up on these photo calls and red carpets at all if they don’t want to.   They can hire a famous spokesmodel or two (twins even!) to show up at most of these things (this award presentation being an exception of course, since they were getting an award) and hawk their wares.

      • moppet

        I don’t know the answer to that; I’m only an internet psychologist. :-) Maybe because they consider these public appearances to be part of their job? People can have jobs and still not love every single part of that job. I would assume Kristen Stewart likes acting but red carpet appearances are clearly not comfortable for her, even though that’s a part of HER job.

         We’ve just seen this type of clothing so many times from the Olsen twins that it seems clear to me that their figure-concealing clothes are more than just a style choice. I just sense that they’re trying to keep part of themselves hidden. And noting it as unflattering seems as beside the point as saying that Katy Perry’s hair is too blue. This is part of the way they are.

      • sekushinonyanko

         If you make a fashion line, it only makes sense to show up for things related to it. They don’t really hit red carpets for anything else. I presume they do this because they like and care about fashion. They must have some talent or at least ability to hire it and strong interest to pull an award like the one that the carpet here is for. If you have all the money in the world, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll never want to do anything productive with your life again.

        • EveEve

          I totally understand and applaud these young women for pursuing careers when they don’t have to.  And I also think they deserve all the credit in the world for the hard work they have put into making their line of clothes and accessories a critical and financial success.  It’s only that someone made a comment that they wear these loose, dour clothes on the red carpet because they want some privacy that bemused me. Fashion designers don’t NEED to go to the Met Gala  - they can put their clothes and accessories on the backs of famous people and have them walk the goods up those stairs.

          • moppet

             There could certainly be some body-image issues at play. Or perhaps the fact that they’ve been wank-material for mouthbreathers and just don’t want to be a part of that any more. Maybe this is how they navigate their public lives while still maintaining some sense of control of their images.

          • sekushinonyanko

             Putting your work on display and your body on display are different things. I would presume that they want attention for their work, but don’t want attention for their appearance and they are going out of their way to avoid sexualized attention on their bodies. If a woman’s body is clearly visible, there’s usually going to be comment on it. Hell, these two are in tents and there are still comments about their bodies. It’s easier to deal with your relationship with your own body when you don’t have lots of uninvited opinions about it making it harder than it already is to judge your body fairly if you have an eating disorder. Some women develop anorexia specifically because they dislike the attention that secondary sexual characteristics like breasts, butt and thighs get them, so they starve them away on purpose to avoid having so much comment on them. In a way wearing huge clothing does the same thing, with less murdering yourself involved.

    The need some powder or something….I get the whole natural face and stuff but really…that much shine is a big no.

  • kingderella

    light olsen looks like a hung over daenerys targaryen, no?

    wouldnt have graded dark olsen that low. the looks not really coming together, but i dont think its awful, either.

    It’s like a two headed monster wearing a frankendress.

  • RedRaven617

    I hope both of these young ladies have good shrinks. I can’t stop thinking that the way they dress is a reflection of being really messed up either in childhood or as adults.

  • GorgeousThings

    I love The Row clothes. If I was a billionaire I’d buy them. They are beautifully made and look great on. Not sure about the purple tent; the jackets are to. die.
    But man, those strange little hobbits are turning into the modern-day Grey Gardens, aren’t they?

  • http://twitter.com/Jutz Jutz

    Last photo…well THAT explains why they never smile with their teeth. Light Olsen is prob super pissed she was caught that way. They have it right with the pursed lips look they have been sporting for years. Smiling w teeth? Light O is still a very pretty girl, but- she looks just like a regular LA girl, not an alien of beauty celebrity! What a relief. : )

    Creepy. And in the last picture the purple one broke the rule about smiling. She will pay.

  • Kyle Crawford

    How can  you even tell how these cloths would look on human sized folk ? People can dis these two all they want, I sort of think they are just walking freak shows.. but they wake up in the morning and just start pooping money… all day long. So, they really are not so much the ” dark side ” and all that, they are tiny ill dressed industrial complexes……

    • Kyle Crawford

      and the dark one looks like she has osteoporosis at 25

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ailsa-Martin/644946901 Ailsa Martin

    I don’t care what anybody says (or what crappy outfits they wear), I love them. And I don’t think they look THAT bad here. They have their thing and they make it work. With all the issues from their background I’d probably want to hide under floor-length silky sheets too. And look at that picture of Light Olsen (Ashley, no?) on her own – MK’s face never really filled back out after her ED, but Ashley looks so bright and beautiful there.

    (I always feel the need to get super defensive about them, not sure why.)

  • formerlyAnon

    There’s really no point in doing my own scoring. Much like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

    I often like the Olsens’ ensembles, but these are not doing it for me. Too big and: in the case of Dark O., just inexplicable – made out of some very depressing drapes, maybe?; in the case of Light O., very much an at-home “lounging” outfit for a woman in her 70s (who’s expecting visitors), except she’d have it hemmed to walk safely in. IMO, their handbags are completely inappropriate, belonging with non-formal day wear, especially Light Olsen’s. Plus I am oppressed by how tight and anxious they both look.

    On the other hand, I like their jewelry. I don’t have a problem with two cuffs, in context.

    • http://www.facebook.com/lenoradody Lenora Dody

       My reaction to Light Olsen’s outfit was Blanche Devereaux headed out to the Lanai!

  • mjude

    have they ever dressed their age, not inculding their toddler years?

    I just want to see one of these girls in a pair of cutoff jeans and flip-flops, wearing a t-shirt and drinking a beer. Just once. To prove they aren’t robots.

  • Cathy S

    Light Olsen’s tent is a beautiful color. That’s the best I can do.

  • nancylee61

    At least one of them is smiling. That gives me hope for them. I think these girls were seriously damaged by being used since they were babies. Disgusting.

  • OffToSeeHim

    Dark Oleson (aka Mary Kate) is anorexic. She dresses like that because of her body issues. Not for a second saying that she doesn’t look awful, but it makes me sad. 

  • http://twitter.com/urban_gypsy Tess Danesi

    Either the way Dark is standing or the too large blouse make her back look rounded adding to the old lady illusion. I would love to see them looking young and fresh which doesn’t mean tight, short and shiny but just in something with exuberance. Light Olsen has the color down but the shape or more lack of shape reminds me of a solid Mrs. Roper dress.

    What a fabulous looking pair of octogenarians! 

  • Lina_bee

    They’re terrible models for their own clothing line because they do look like they’d prefer to hide their figures from prying eyes, so they size up when other women wouldn’t.  However, if you look at shots of other people wearing The Row clothes, and wearing the right size for their bodies, there are some really lovely pieces.  I think mainly you just have to look at their book instead of what they themselves are wearing.

    Mary-Kate looks like she is fighting with anorexia again. I don’t think there’s much more to be said about that. I hope I’m wrong and I wish her good health.

  • judybrowni

    Knew one of the stars of Full House, and he apparently cared for the twins and they joined his family on outings. But after watching them grow up in the spotlight he was vehemently opposed to his own children working as actors.

    Insisted his children would have a normal childhood.

    Thank goodness neither one has her hair in a low chignon and a hair net (because I know that is coming) because Dark Olsen is making me think of Ruth Buzzy in her spinster get up on Laugh In, many years ago.  Yes I am that old and don’t for one minute think I don’t know you all remember that, too.

    • Call me Bee

      I remember–and you are spot on with that comparison! 

  • Elizabeth Anderson

    I happen to like their look here. They’re glamorous and young! 

  • Call me Bee

    So the over-sized shirt, skirt and black bag that The Dark One is wearing is from a resort collection???!?!?  Is the resort in Romania?

    ‘Dark Olsen’ … I love you guys.

    Jesus. They scare the shit out of me.

    I want to cut off their heads and put them on the others bod.  Thanks to the economy the competition at the cfda’s this year…… is ..um…er..well, the winners  are those that can fund their own biz.

    it looks like the  2 of them  have stayed at  Halloween Party all year round.  2 perfect witches.

  • Jose Bejarano

    These girls are awesome. They don’t give two shits about what people think and why should they? They may be eccentric, but they are so much more well adjusted than the vast majority of child stars. Why do you let people cruelly bash on them so freely, TLo? Is Rose McGowan the only celebrity that you defend?

  • Sara__B

    These two were born in 1986, same as Lindsay Lohan (and my daughter). Comparing my daughter and her friends with the twins and LL makes me so happy that my daughter didn’t grow up in the harsh spotlight of fame. These two scare me almost as much as Lindsay Lohan. I hope they’re happier and better adjusted than they appear.

    • terekirkland

       Whatever anyone thinks about the way they dress, they’re obviously savvy enough to have started a couture fashion label (The Row) in addition to their E&J collection. Ashley hasn’t worked in the tv/entertainment industry for a good eight years, by choice, I would assume. So I would be willing to believe they are much better adjusted than people give them credit for. They’ve been marketed as a commodity since they were babies (Wikipedia lists an official “biography” when they were 14 years old, for crying out loud!) but they have managed to use their time in the spotlight to turn all that pre-teen merchandizing into a multimillion-dollar company that now sells high fashion.

      Yes, they’re young, but people don’t need to dismiss their talent (for making money, if not for making clothes) as designers, while simultaneously judging them as if they are still tv/film stars. For their chosen field, I think they’ve earned some leeway in their choice of clothes. And they’ve obviously proven that they aren’t going to drastically change their style anytime soon. They’re being true to their own selves, which is just one more reason I consider them to be good role-models for young girls. Even if 99% of young girls can’t afford their clothes. ;)

  • rose88

    Could somebody with a lot more money than me tell me if showering and hair washing is considered passé in wealthy, fashionable circles?  I just want to give them both a sandwich and a bar of soap!

  • alwaysanswerc

    Completely agree with the score, and yet, these looks are among their better ones. I can at least see some kind of shape on MK; when is the last time that happened??

  • http://profiles.google.com/dandesun Erika Schultze

    Whenever I see them I find myself wondering what it is they do all day.

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    Oh, good gawd, I just can’t with these two…  there are no words.  Well, maybe a few – showers, and shampoo, and face wash, and tailoring, and SMILING once in a while!  They’re richer than sin – why can’t they clean up and dress like grownups, instead of little girls playing with mommy’s clothes?

  • KathKo

    you forgot to mention that 2 girls forgot to apply foundation and end there make up with some light powder.
    I could almost count the sweat’s dots on each face.
    Seriously. 

  • NurseEllen

    “a moment of jubilant triumph”—-HAH!  Another laugh-out-loud moment at the computer, courtesy of TLo.

    One morning these two are going to wake up and find that their youth and young adulthood has flown and they have no fun memories (or photos), and they’ll be even more dour than they are now.

  • Jecca2244

    the light olsen is TOTALLY channeling Dany from Game of Thrones….

    Designer of the Year?  More like “The Golden Girls-The Next Generation”.  Just goes to show you how batshit insane the fashion industry is.

  • turtleemily

    Do they always have to pose like they’re trying to merge into one person?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OSYAJATXUH3QX7ZDDF52GXG4PU Janie R

      They should just have Siamese twin reconnection surgery and get ig over with. They are creepy.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2B6U4UNVYIV5DLEG6Z24ALYOC4 Dan Alexander

    It’s as if they raided Mother’s closet and are playing dress up!

  • Arelis Víctor Garro

    I think they look good: considering the way they always dress

  • Kathleen Gillies

    Well preserved 79 year olds. 

  • http://twitter.com/karenrubyleo Karen

    it’s bizarre how they went from adorable cute teens to octogenarians in the space of ten years.

  • Laura Valentine

    You know, I kind of like that they don’t look like every generic starlet who comes along.Also, I remember super duper creepy countdowns to when they were “legal”. If I’d spent my childhood and early teens being publicly, creepily objectified by legions of much older men, I might dress to hide my body as much as humanly possible, too. Just saying.

  • guest2visits

    I actually don’t mind the hair and makeup today. What creeps me out is the twin pose. That just stopped looking right after
    they passed 14-15 years of age.  Add the oversized clothes, big sad eyes, and they become two starving little chicks in the nest;
    waiting for dinner.   Sheeze.   Are they clothing designers ? Where’s their stuff ?

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

    Somewhere in all this, there’s a master’s thesis involving twins, the male gaze, extreme wealth and childhood stardom.  I leave it to those better educated than I am – lord knows I’ll never understand what’s going on with these two.

  • LambeeBaby

    They’re missing their mahjong game at Del Boca Vista.

  • JMansm

    It always feels like they’re “above it” or “over it”, they wear clothes that are too big, intentionally unattractive/understated hair, messy and unflattering makeup and they never look like they want to be anywhere. They should just quit and make room for people who actually want to be successful.

  • Judih1

    They won an award for designer of the year? What a crock!

  • Jangle57

    What was their award for?  Best designed sack?

  • Sophie Collier

    They ARE super-tiny, but since they freaking OWN their own design house, you’d think they’d have clothes perfectly tailored to them.  But no.  

  • quiltrx

    And there’s this thing called powder.  They should look into it.

    (and if there are any other Aqua Teen fans among the Bitter Kittens, these two are starting to hang all over each other like the siren sisters and John Kruk.)

  • M G

    Personally I completely understand why they wear such baggy clothes and don’t show off their bodies. I mean, I would want to hide as much as myself too if I had thousands of creepy guys slavishly counting the days until I turned 18, too. (Doesn’t negate that the purple thing is a tent with sleeves, though.)

  • M G

    Oh, I posted my comment before seeing this. Yes, I agree.

    Why are they always walking into each other when they pose for pictures?

  • MightyMarshal

    I actually like them. They’ve carved a fortune out of a singular role as children, it’s rather impressive. One of the reasons they stand out is because they dress so peculiarly. And the Row is a pretty awesome line. Nothing groundbreaking, but it all looks very luxe and very Olson.

  • Tom Sprick

    I find them and their recent award mystifying.  Niether of those “dresses” are attractive or flattering and they both look tired, dull or stoned.  Sorry for being so “negative” but there are surely more deserving designers out there for recognition, no?

  • TomBord

    Will someone educate these ‘designers’  and explain that ‘couture’ cannot be purchased at the dept store. Geeeeesh! 

  • Addicted2Glamour

    Duck Mouths, Doctor’s Bags and Satin Sheets? Erm, NO.

    They’ve been working all of their lives, poor things.  No wonder they look so worn out.

    Dark Olsen looks like 50 years older than Light Olsen. WTF???

    Light Olsen needs the name of a good eyebrow threader…..
