A Celebrity Moment: MK at New Year's in April: A Fools Fete





This is the first time in basically ever that I have HATED an MK outfit. It's mostly just the Marc headband that I can't get around since the rest is the usual eccentric MK style I've come to love. 
But as Lainey pointed out...MK couldn't care less what any of us regular people think. 




Mary Kate doesn’t get dressed for an appearance, like last night at the "New Year's in April: A Fool's Fete", expecting you to like what she’s wearing. Quite the opposite in fact. Mary Kate reckons her style is esoteric, appreciated by the very few and only the “right” kind of people.

Trust me…she could give a sh*t that you’re ridiculing that head band. She probably wants you to ridicule her headband. Because in her mind, by ridiculing that head band, you are proving how unworthy you are. How you weren’t meant for high fashion, for risk, for experimentation. And to a certain degree, I agree with her.

We’re not supposed to like it. To like it would mean that Mary Kate Olsen dressed like Jennifer Aniston. Like the girl next door. For the people.

Mary Kate does not dress for the people. As Karl Lagerfeld would say, the people are DEMODé.


The little blurb made me laugh but the sad thing is it's true. And yet it doesn't make me love her any less.

MK looks nuts but only she can work that look. This over sized dress/sweatband combo is my super(fashion)hero outfit for her. It says so much about her. She is still one of my stylecons.
