What Was She Thinking? Mary-Kate Goes Grunge

10/25/2006 at 05:00 PM ET

Mary-Kate Olsen seems to be in a fashion time warp — first the Eighties and now the Nineties. The petite star emerged yesterday in an outfit reminiscent of the Grunge look popularized by bands like Nirvana — oversize flannel shirt and all. But like some other starlets we know, she seems to have left her pants at home, opting for thin leggings and ultra-clunky Balenciaga boots (and bag) to complete the look. We think leggings are great as a layering tool under long (read mid-thigh) tunics or sweaters, but with just a buttondown, Mary-Kate looks a tad overexposed. Tell us: What do you think of Mary-Kate’s look? Love it or hate it?

Is it just me, or does she look depressed in every picture that I’ve seen of her? I guess money can’t buy everything.

She is way too young to be looking so old! Does she really pick out her own clothes or is some assistant trying to get noticed? She needs to start taking of herself it looks like and then tackle the wardrobe. Your appearance is a reflection of how you feel. If she starts feeling good about herself I am sure she will look wonderful in whatever she wears. Slow down make, your own schedule, pick out your own clothes and enjoy life!

I think that she needs to get some pants on, get a haircut and quit smoking.

I prefer this to the bag lady look, but hey, she’s young and rich, she can do whatever the hell she wants!

Maybe her jeans are in the bag. The platform on those boots make them really, really ugly. And I agree with the people who say ankle boots should only be worn with pants.

Sorry Mary-Kate, but I don’t like the flannel or the leggings with the flannel shirt. However, I don’t think she looks overexposed. For such a well-paid girl, she could dress a lot better.

I think Mary-Kate is quite the style icon so now that she’s wearing grunge again you’ll see more people wearing the trend

Pleasssse!!! Why should this day be any different than any other day? These 2 sisters have all the money in the world and tiny frames. Though I can never tell them apart, they both really good be fashion plates. Their clothes are alsways to big, sun glasses to BIG and hair to long for their frame. 9 times out of 10 they always look like bag ladies. Thats ashame!
