Olsen Twins Top Best-Dressed List xox
Vogue’s Special Edition Best Dressed list hits the news stands this week and the focus is on global sister acts. Top of the list are previous American sit-com child stars, turned international fashion designers, Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen. With two successful labels under their belt, Elizabeth & James and The Row (so desirable) these girls are hot property right now.
Ashley and Mary Kate have always intrigued me. What I find most enchanting is that they are not afraid to mix it up and experiment with fashion. Whether it be an Adidas jacket over a maxi dress or a tailored suit with gladiator sandals. Apart from Kate Moss, no-one does the rock chic look better than them.
Mark Holgate, Vogue Fashion News Director and Editor of the best dressed issue explains ‘The fact they have appeared on worst dressed lists in the past, including an annual one from late fashion critic Mr Blackwell, is actually a positive thing. They get it right a lot of the time and then sometimes they don’t get it right. That’s actually great because it shows that it’s their hands reaching into their wardrobes,’ he explained. ‘They don’t have someone telling them, this is cool, this is hot, this is what you should be wearing. It comes from within them. It’s instinctual.’

There were a few surprises in the top ten with Beyoncé and Solange Knowles taking the number 7 spot. Solange Knowles has been on my style radar for a while now. Beyoncé may have the voice but Solange has most definitely got the fashion credentials. I love how she works bold prints, killer heels and funky hair accessories. And don’t even get me started on those legs!
I’m happy to see the Fanning sisters at number 2. Not only are they super talented but like the Olsens they never seem to try too hard. Dressing comes naturally to Dakota and Elle. And you know your doing something wright when Mark Jacob casts you to front bis Marc a/w campaign!
