Ashley Olsen Spills Her Secrets

When Ashley & Mary Kate was first introduced to us years ago on the popular tv show "FULL HOUSE" I can honestly say I wasn't a big fan. But as the girl branched out and started to blossom into young adults I started to take noticed. Both girls have their own style, a style many has called rag dolls, homeless bag ladies, or bohemian chic. But I always called THE OLSEN GIRLS-STYLE ICONS. I have always been intrigued with what would they be photographed next. And when they came out with their own clothing line THE ROW, I knew I had to find the look book of the collection or better yet got to New York to shop at THE ROW. Their clothes do, in fact, stand on their own. They are sophisticated, elegant, versatile, understated. In a way, it’s a different tween act—idols to both goofy little girls and snotty fashion ladies. And for all their riches, it’s what they wanted.

In this month issue of Marie Claire, Ashley Olsen speaks candid about her personal style and what's in her closet. I picked out my favorites but more can be viewed in the magazine or online
