Behind the Scenes: Mary-Kate and Ashley

I have to admit, I'm slightly obsessed with the Olsen twins. Their mega-success, sense of style, and fashion empire has inspired me for quite some time. Such a long way from, "you got it dude." At the young age of 27, I can only imagine where their success will bring them in the years to come.

Check out some photos from their recent photoshoot with Allure Magazine, as well as some shots from behind the scenes.

Olsen Twins Win Top Honor At CFDA Awards

Last night Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were given the top award of the evening at the Council of Fashion Designers of America. They were named Womenswear Designer of the Year. Their fashion label, The Row, has been praised for years...and now they are really showing that they can stand strong with others in the industry. I have to give the girls credit where credit is due. Here's to a job well done!

For all you Olsen fans out there did you notice that Mary-Kate debuted a brunette hairstyle at the awards. I have to say, I kind of love it on her. What are your thoughts? Should Ashley follow MK's steps and switch up her hair a little?

And a quick side the CFDA Awards Johnny Depp (who was not in attendance) received the Fashion Icon Award. I love Johnny Depp (who doesn't???), but fashion icon? Seriously? His fashion sense is typically atrocious. Who do you think deserved the award of fashion icon?
