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?

So it’s actually a dress. Too bad for the designer. :(

It is sad to say but this is not the worst thing I have see her wear.

I think this is actually the first time when absolutely EVERYTHING she’s wearing is wrong… so very wrong. The eyeglasses, the scrunchie, the hideous table cloth, the horrific shoes… why, mary kate, why? She probably thinks she’s so cool it doesn’t matter what she’s wearing. The truth is it does matter… just because she’s a star it doesn’t mean she can pull off anything. Even if she was a face in the crowd, this would have been an awful outfit. Hideous.

The Olson twins are young and rich but they look so unhappy! They should get healthy and maybe then they will feel better about themselves and will try to put more thought into their appearances. A lot of young girls look up to them and want to be just like them. Not very positive role models looking like skeletons.

Alice, I don’t see any reason for the name calling! This is a place where you can voice your opinion and it just doesn’t matter. Hell, there’s nothing wrong with that and I don’t imagine what has been written would make a damn bit of difference to those two ugly Olsen twins. Lighten up and take that frown off of your face! Have a great weekend!

For someone who has as much money as she does, you’d think she’d be able to hire a stylist and afford nicer clothes! UGH! I have not seen one thing on her that I’ve ever liked! She looks like a homeless person!

Ah, poor Marykate, this just goes to show not all of us can be perfect all the time. Here’s one of her better days:


I’m obsessed with this site, and they have a feature called ‘Ask a Stylist’ where you shoot a message about what you’re looking for, or how to wear something you’re not quite sure about, etc. and they have stylists who will actually track down what you’re looking for along with the contact info! I subscribe so that I get the e-mails to my sidekick each day :)

I love the olsen twins. People who make rude comments are just jealous because they wish that they could afford expensive designer brand clothing and be worth millions.

I’ve already determined that almost EVERYONE hates these girls, but what else is new. Very rare to see a nice word about any person on here. Yes, this dress is not fit to be worn, but it is gaining them the attention they so clearly are seeking. Maybe not such a bad idea to get what you want, no matter what it takes.

It looks like she got caught fooling around with someone and grabbed the nearest blanket and took off quickly! Honestly, these two girls are the poster child for anerexic women.
