One thing we love about Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen is that the pair have been slaying the boho/ boho prep style game since the early aughts – and they definitely can’t stop, won’t stop serving us loose-fitting, multilayered looks that wouldn’t work on anyone else but them.
Designers, models, muses, and industry bigwigs gather at Lincoln Center in New York City to honor the best designers of that year—in menswear, womenswear, and accessories—and celebrate the CFDA itself, which prides itself on nurturing young and emerging designers. This year’s host was James Corden, who’s quickly earned America’s love as the host of the The Late Late Show with James Corden on CBS. While he later told Yahoo Style the crowd “was a lot warmer than I though it was going to be. A pleasant surprise,” there were plenty of gasps during his piercing monologue, which skewered everyone from Terry Richardson (who became a sort of running joke throughout the night) to beleaguered American Apparel CEO Dov Charney, and former Ambercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries. He told her after the show and said the West family only throw tantrums on stage.” Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen took home the CFDA for Womenswear Designer of the Year. When Marc Jacobs sent his now legendary grunge collection down the Perry Ellis runway, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen still had three years left of Full House. But tonight, the twins beat out Jacobs, as well as Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, Joseph Altuzarra, and Michael Kors, for the night’s biggest award.

One high school girl who was photographed by Brandon Stanton for his Humans of New York project knows the good, bad, and the ugly (or “Pretty Hurts” in Queen Bey terms). “Sometimes I hate my name because it always draws attention to me, and I’m not a very social person. When the teacher started calling attendance, I got really nervous, because every time people learn my name is Beyoncé, somebody starts singing ‘Single Ladies.’ And some did, of course. Because everyone knew my name.” But teenage Beyoncé isn’t the only one out there with a name similar to a celebrity’s. The other Mary Kate Olsen, Katy (spelled Kaity) Perry, Katie (goes by Katherine) Holmes, Kelly Rowland, Will Smith, Julia Roberts, Tina Turner, and other name twins sounded off in the comments section about what it’s like living with an epithet doppelgänger.
This picture captures the twin sisters’ polished yet urban style, and their knack for setting themselves apart. They’ve perfected the I-just-woke-up-like-this look, but they’ve made an effort.
