What Was Mary-Kate Thinking?

01/18/2007 at 02:00 PM ET

If you’re asking yourself what is that wrapped around Mary-Kate Olsen — a tablecloth? a blanket? a grunge-inspired toga? — you’re not the only one. Turns out that it’s actually a $1700 wool wrap dress from the Marc Jacobs fall collection. We have some serious doubts about the dress itself, but combined with the naughty-librarian platform loafers and a beaded evening bag, it’s a head-scratcher of a look. We won’t even talk about the scrunchie in her hair. All in all, we think that no mega-bucks designer dress should ever be confused for a hastily tossed-on blanket. Tell us: What do you think of Mary-Kate’s outfit?

Hate to break it to you but when you are a celebrity and dress like that- you WILL get made fun of. If they can’t take the comments, maybe they should NOT be in the public seye…

Mary kate looks like trash, as always. Rememebr when the were teenagers and actually looked cute- someone needs to reintroduce them to the art of fashion as apparently this chica has lost her senses.

she looks OK from the shoulders up….from the shoulders down it looks like a bad dream I had once…I forgot to wear clothes and did not realize till I was out in public..had to grab a ratty blanket from a dumpster…..Only for this poor girl it is REAL LIFE….someone had better wake her up.

How sad that we have to pic on her for what she is wearing. She’s her own person and if wants to wear it and you don’t like it don’t comment. Mary-kate Jesus loves you girl no matter what you wear.

Mary-Kate looks so sad and depressed. I guess money can’t buy her love or happiness.

This outfit is an absolute debacle! It looks like she’s wrapped up in a gothic picnic blanket! Those shoes look like they weigh about 10 lbs each! Where is her stylist?!

She looks so sickly these days…

It’s so easy for many of you to bash her and not consider that she has issues just like the rest of us. Does it make you feel better about yourself to talk about her? Yes, I’m protecting her. She has done nothing to anyone one you here. I have seen a comment on here that she hasn’t done any charity work or donated any of her time. If you took sometime and looked on the Internet you will see both of them have done lots for the community work since they were 9. Check yourself before saying something.
How does it feel when someone at school or at work talk about you while you walk by or say something about you that is not true? Now imagine millions of people saying crap to you while you are trying to shop or go to your car or eat or just have a nice dinner? She didn’t ask for this. she just wants to be left aloneShe has sacrificed so many thing that none of you can understand. If you can do anything for Mary-Kate just pray for her. Question: If you were here friend what would you tell her? Would you support her or talk trash behind her back? Why do you want to add more drama to this poor things life. Yes what you say can and will affect a person life. There is only so much a person can blow off or take. If you ever see her on the street smile at her don’t be mean or say nasty things just smile and maybe let her know that you care.

I do not wish anyone any harm. Since I do not know her I can’t tell her what I feel she NEEDS to hear. As I said I feel badly for her and recognize that life must have been very hard. Life is hard for everyone like the people who have incurable diseases or who are orphans at her age( BTW these are people I know). I’m sorry but there is nothing charitable about having a lifestyle of designer clothes that cost more than many people make in a month. I have said it many times before, donating some time or money, doing charity work is fun and easy. The most charitable thing a person can do and the kind of charity I was talking about is the hardest kind. The CHOICE to live in modesty, not lavish greed. Again, there is not enough to go around for people to be greedy. Enjoy life, buy a wrap dress, but not one that could feed a family for six months to a year. When you have SO MUCH more than you need, more than is respectful in this world that is the OPPOSITE of charity. Living in mansions while others live in shacks, wearing people monthly or in some parts of the world yearly paychecks on your feet that is ANTI-CHARITY. If I saw her in the street I would smile at her, because as I said I wish her HAPPINESS, real happiness!

I honestly think she’s brilliant. I mean the fact alone that the way she dresses can inspire such angry, vile responses from people is a feat. Who knew fashion could be so powerful? I think she has fun with clothes and plays with her style — she’s being ironic and having fun — its a very early nineties, Kim Gordon, kind of chic.
