Would you wear it? Forehead Bands

08/25/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

I know that Nicole Richie already wears head scarfs all the time and that Mary-Kate Olsen is known for her quirkier fashion choices, but are they serious with these across the forehead headbands? They look like a  combination of 80’s aerobic-instructor sweatbands, Matthew McConaughey’s workout gear and an elementary school Pocahantas costume. Is Mary-Kate’s actually made out of hair? I am all for trying new ideas and accessories (and I think these two are some of the better risk-takers around), but they have lost me on this one.  Tell us: What do you think? Would you wear this look? Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

NEVER! I would not ever wear this! This is something I classify under the “starts could wear anything and it would be called a ‘trend'”. It looks terrible on both parties

I think the head bands are awesome!! i perfer the thicker head bands but the smaller ones are cool also. So rock on girls!! shouts out to tha cincinnati, northern ky,and the whole tri-state area!!!

I would never wear it, but Mary Kate looks cute in it. Still, this is not a trend that I can see catching on (I hope). Now Nicole Richey- I don’t know about that one. That just doesn’t look good at all. When I first saw this photo, I actually wondered “does she know she has that thing on her head”. It is kind of like walking around with toilet paper stuck to your shoe.

I love Nicole’s funky style, but I have to agree that the headbands are a little too out there. Head scarves are way cute, and I’ve actually been wearing them since seeing Nicole in them. Such a great way to change up your look without doing anything too drastic. But these little headbands…not as attractive. Nicole needs to get back to her scarves. And Mary Kate has billions of dollars, shops constantly, and has absolutely no fashion sense. I wouldn’t trust ANY style she puts on.
