Saturday Style inspiration: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
Today's Style inspiration is a blast from my fashion past, as well as a brilliant two-for-one. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are responsible for getting most of my generation interested in fashion. When I was little I wanted to be an Olsen twin. I owned all the movies (On Video probably) and I distinctly remember taking a picture of Ashley into the hairdressers when I was 12 and asking for the same haircut. It looked amazing on her, but horrendous on me.
The twins successfully managed to make that difficult transition from child stars to fashionable adults, without going the same way as Lindsay Lohan on us. Now no longer film stars, they own the most amazing clothing range I've ever seen- Elizabeth and James. If you say you didn't want to be an Olsen when you were little, you're definitely lying!
