Child stars turned designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have had a lifetime of memorable moments together — even when they're apart.
"Some of our memories are shared," Mary-Kate explains in Vogue magazine. "We don't know what actually happened to whom. One of us was stung by a bee, but we can't remember who, because we both felt it."
They both also felt the call to transition from "Full House" into fashion design. "We had a collection with Walmart at 12, which was the upper tier of the tween market. It was before celebrity designers," says Ashley. Adds Mary-Kate, "And we were really designing it. It would be jeans, a bit bohemian, or with a little blazer. It was really fashion-forward."
Today, their acclaimed collections include the luxury line The Row, the contemporary Elizabeth and James, and Olsenboye, their teen label for JCPenney. Not surprisingly, the sisters' success in the fashion world has left them with little desire to return to acting full time.
"I am so proud of what we did," Ashley says of their earlier TV and film work. "We made kids smile every day. But we had done the most we could do."
Now, the duo are looking toward the future and want to help nurture other aspiring artists.
"I want to run a studio," Ashley says. "I'd probably like to manage other people on their brands. It could be an artist. A young designer. It could be an existing brand."
Adds Mary-Kate, "The thing about us is we think big. Huge."
sorry dudes, we meant once a week. Later!
Dude, they look okay, but we like girls we're not gonna break with bodaciously vigorous activity, you know! Girls that eat more than onc a week.
The Olsen twins are hot and always have been. Any guy who doesn't think so is most likely "pitching for the other side" if you know what I mean, and I think you do.
I know one of their "shared memories" is with me that night we played "hide the python"! It takes 4 hands to handle this whopper!
i'd take 'em on.
It's kinda great to see child stars NOT in rehab. But they could use a cookie.
Gotta admit, at least the nose job makes telling them apart simple.
Kudos to the Olsen Twins! Very smart to have a business plan like this one. Not really sure why there are so many ridiculous comments about their looks. What does that have to do with anything. Maybe those commenting are just insecure and jealous. Great job Ashley and Mary Kate! And yes you did make kids smile everyday :)
They both look like an anorexic pug dog. Those bulging eyes are not attractive. And it only gets worse the older they get. Dog Catcher......
Superhiro: dude you beat us to it! if Ashley does a bong hit, whose eyes get red and who gets the munchies?
As you know I couldn't sell my home due to a lack of a kitchen.I hope Mary-Kate has a nice kitchen in case she decides to sale... .
With those big mouths I bet they can gobble some goobers.
I wonder if Mary Kate also gets high when Ashley does coke?
Conversely if one consumes a butt brownie does the other one also taste the yummy goodness?
