I Want It All: StyleMint Launches On StylistPick

I admit I am an Olsen twin fan, I love their style, I dream of owning something from their high-end line The Row, which they recently won a CFDA Award for, and I have been lusting over their casual collection of t-shirts, dresses and skirts, StyleMint since they launched it 12 months ago in the US.

Well, I have good news as their StyleMint clothing collection is now exclusive in the UK to StylistPick, yep not content with shoe collections from Cheryl Cole and Louise Roe, this is an online shopping site on the up, and if you haven’t been by lately it has changed a lot – they are now also selling sunglasses.

Prices for the Olsen’s StyleMint starts at a very affordable £15 and the highlights include the ‘Harlem’ chiffon-back tee, the simple grey marl pocket tee called the ‘Victoria’, daytime Breton stripes on the long-sleeved ‘Barley’ top and the ‘Broadway’ striped cotton dress, and to pair all these fab tees with you have the relaxed ‘Selby’ dip hem skirt that comes in pink and grey. Seriously drool worthy wardrobe staples that won’t break the bank.

1. Victoria, £182. Whitney, £153. Barley, £204. Selby, £205. Newbury, £156. Broadway, £207. Wilshire, £18.

Met Gala 2012: Mary-Kate Olsen in The Row

Who: Mary-Kate Olsen

Where: At the 2012 Met Gala in New York

Wearing: A custom-made, floor-length, black silk The Row gown

Verdict: I have to be honest, I really want to love this Goth-inspired dramatic gown, but something is holding me back. I am not sure whether it is because there is too much dress, she seems to be drowning in all the detailing of the structured bodice, the wrap-style waist band, the high neckline and the long-sleeves.

Maybe it is because it is in black, would a different colour have helped? Or maybe it is because Mary-Kate came solo, would Ashley have balanced out this look?

I am thinking this dress isn’t going to be very popular, what do you think?

Cover Loving: Ashley Olsen Gets My Attention On ELLE

My subscriber copy of ELLE’s April issue has only just arrived, it has been killing me seeing pictures of the Olsen twins all over the Internet and not having my own copy, I have to admit I nearly bought the newsstand version yesterday just so I could read it, but as they only had the Mary-Kate one I decided against it.

I am glad I waited as Ashley looks amazing on the subscriber cover wearing a gorgeous crystal and gabardine coat by Prada. I am not sure when Mary-Kate became my favourite Olsen twin, I am sure it was some cool outfit many years ago, but after seeing the covers and editorial in ELLE I have most certainly changed allegiances to Ashley – seriously don’t think I have seen her look this good.

Ashley’s newsstand cover is also just as pretty, I am loving her Swarovski crystal and sequinned lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana – you have to check out the editorial spread inside, as soon as you see the fringing on the dress you’ll understand why – it is a wow dress.

Is it just me that was hoping for a duo cover of them together? I have included a picture of them both at the bottom for the editorial as I think it is a great image – I wonder if they tried to make this work for a subscriber cover. And is anyone else a little surprised that they both didn’t get two covers?

CFDA Awards: Olsen Twins Work The Row Bags

Who: Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen

Where: At the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City

Wearing: Ashley is wearing a strapless pale blue dress from The Row, teamed with gold heels and a tan coloured The Row handbag; while Mary-Kate is sporting a black The Row dress with a drop hem, teamed with a sparkly gold sequinned Chanel jacket from the pre-fall 2011 collection and gold strappy heels, and completing her look is a cream The Row handbag

Verdict: First off I can’t believe that they didn’t win the Swarovski Award for Womenswear *it went to Prabal Gurung*, secondly how amazing do they both look – this is the best I have seen them in a while, and thirdly I love how they completely work their own designs in different ways, but still do the twin thing with their matching bags – completely adorable.

I think I prefer Ashley’s handbag the colour is classic, but I adore Mary-Kate in that Chanel blazer, which kind of looks a little big on her but I think that is why it works. I also adore Mary-Kate’s make-up and half-up-half-down hair, she looks so happy in this picture I just love her look.

I also can’t believe that the two only turn 25 next week *June 13*, anyone else feel like they should be older – they’ve done so much!!

So which Olsen gets your vote?
