Yay or Nay?: Olsen Twins Red Carpet Style
It's a double whammy this Yay or Nay as we're looking at the Olsen twins! Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen attended the New York Film Festival for their sister Elizabeth's film Martha Marcy May Marlene which was showing there.
I'm a big Olsen style fan for the most part, I've always found that they are ahead of the style curve and they have fabulous taste as evidenced in their line The Row. However, with this particular ensemble, I am beginning to question their fashion cred.
Here are the issues I am having with this:
- Why the chunky, top heavy silhouette of fur on a lean, stream lined maxi skirt? Drags their petite frames down!
- Not loving the heavy under eyeshadow on the left. We actually tried out this look but for the most part, the dramatic bold colour under eyeshadow wasn't well received.
- What's with the giant furry sleeves on the leather jacket? Had it been an all leather jacket in brown, I could have forgiven this but the fur sleeves are way too over the top for me.
What do you think of this red carpet style? Are the Olsens pulling this look off?

ney! they look like old grannies ! firstname.lastname@example.org
I don't like it but they are so dang skinny they probably needed the warmth of the fur.
Ugh, Nay! I get that they are boho-babes, but this is sorta pushing it!
Nay. Big furry nay. Who wants to walk around looking like a wooly mammoth?
unfortunately, it's a nay. There's too much chunky fur and makes the outfit look un-unified and really uncoordinated
Wow, I was actually surprised at how bad these ensembles are. It makes them look like tiny shriveled old ladies instead of women in their mid-twenties. The rusty eyeliner also looks like a disease, not high fashion.
