Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Win Big at the 2014 CFDA Awards — See Their Matching Outfits! (PHOTO)
They’re twins for a reason, ya’ll! Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen had a pretty big night during the 2014 Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards, held in New York City on June 2. The famous twins — who spent their infancy/childhood portraying Michelle Tanner on the hit show Full House — were awarded the Accessories Designer of the Year award for their brand, The Row. Congrats, girls!
For the momentous event, Mary-Kate and Ashley pulled off matching outfits — in all black, of course. Not only did they both wear long-sleeved gowns from their own brand, but everything from their hair down to their shoes was pretty similar, save for a few flourishes when it came to their jewelry and clutches. Just like old times, right friends?
This is Mary-Kate and Ashley’s second CFDA win — just last year they took home the Womenswear Designer of the Year award for the same line. What’s more, the 27 year olds even beat out some of the industry’s biggest names — including Alexander Wang, and Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez for Proenza Schouler. We can’t help but be so proud of MK&A and for everything they’ve accomplished after their entertainment careers.
It’s been a few years since the twins retired from television and movies (we’re still upset about it), and they’ve since managed to make a name for themselves in the fashion world. In fact, Mary-Kate and Ashley not only design The Row, but also Elizabeth and James and the JCPenney’s line, Olsenboye. They also have several collaborations under their belt, including one with Bik Bok based in Norway. Pretty impressive, right?
Congratulations on the big win, ladies!
