C'mon you know you aren't surprised! You knew it would be an Olsen but I bet you thought it would be Mary-Kate! Well, as much as MK's eclectic style is more my thing, this year Ashley has gone from boho to chic, sleek and sophisticated. She's set herself apart from her twin with a more sexy twist on their famous look. Normally favoring black when she goes for bold colors (like the red mini dress) she overshadows everyone else on the red carpet.
This year Ashley also truly established herself in the industry as head designer, creative director and CEO of her high-end fashion line The Row. It began with the quest for the "perfect" white tee shirt and has quickly evolved into an ultra-luxe and interesting line of basics that the celebrity and fashion crowds can't get enough of. Not to mention her best selling coffee table book Influence (written with MK and social-climber Derek Blasberg).
While Mary-Kate focuses on indie-movies, minor TV roles, contemporary line Elizabeth & James and building up her already insanely impressive personal art collection, Ashley has established herself as a fashion force. Haters beware because neither of these twins are going anywhere for a very long time.
