Influences: Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen

There is a reason why the twins are muses to many designers. They certainly have a distinctive style, but more importantly, they dress for themselves. I honestly think they could not care less what is written or said about their fashion aesthetic. They wear what makes them feel good, and really, in the end, I think all women should have this self-assuredness. Easier said than done, I know, which is why I think Mary Kate and Ashley are great influences not only for young girls but for all of us "older" women as well.

I also love their lines Elizabeth and James and The Row. What they have accomplished in the fashion world is really quite amazing.

Don't you agree?
