Mary Kate and Ashley are always two of my favorite people to see on the red carpet. It sounds cheesy, but I really have grown up with them and I respect and admire their work ethic, business sense, design prowess and most importantly, their style. They possess such a laid-back elegance and are true style chameleons. I can never predict what they will wear and I love that.
At the 2011 CFDA Awards, the dynamic duo kept it modest and refined. Mary Kate chose an eye-popping gold jacket from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2011 collection (worn on the runway by Aline Weber) and a black skirt to match. She accessorized with gold Louis Vuitton sandals and Cartier jewelry. Ashley opted for a custom-designed blue strapless dress from the Olsens’ label, The Row and she accessorized with Manolo Blahnik pumps and Cartier jewelry as well.
Both sisters chose to rock their new handbag collection from The Row on the red carpet and the bright hues of the pieces really gave their ensembles pops of color. After all, they were nominated for the 2011 Swarovski Award for Womenswear and could not disappoint in the style department.
The Row’s Classic Shoulder Bag retails for $5450. Visit www.therow.com for more information.
