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?

Give the girl a break catty-People mag! Mary-Kate looks much better than grungy granny ware… give her props for trying a fashion forward attempt instead of no fashion. I think the other pick in the gold dress is sweet too, she is actually *SMILING*…. so People~ DON’T RAIN ON HER PARADE!

Does it bother any of you that all of these rude comments getting posted about a girl (and her sister) that had no choice what-so-ever about the industry she has ROCKED since birth is just putting money into the pockets of the jack-asses who are exploiting her? I thank God every day that I don’t aspire to and succeed at being a celebrity because of people like you. I didn’t even want to write this, what with giving satisfaction to some of you who will read this and talk about how dumb I am for posting my comment to make themselves feel better. Do what you need to do, but damn…

I’m glad she’s not wearing the face swallowing sunglasses like she usually wears. The glasses she is wearing looks like the ones I use to wear in the 90’s though.

Everyone is slamming ol’ sad sack Mary-Kate when the REAL villian here is Marc Jacobs for “designing” the monstrosity in the first place and then plopping a $1700 price tag on it to boot. You can’t blame the Hollywood sheeple for sporting it out in public as they’ve proven they’ll wear ANYthing if you call it fashion. Hey, it MUST be fashion if it’s by ______ {fill in the blank with any designer name}, right?!?! Add some of those things known as “sleeves”, lower the price tag by $1680.05, and it would make a cute nightshirt.

She looks great. Trust me, many people will be imitating this look. Most people could not pull it off but that doesn’t mean it looks bad.

Ooh baby, that’s hot. Okay, not really, that’s hideous. She needs a stylist, or if she already has one, she needs a new one!

Maybe someone with curves could pull this off… on anyone with a stick thin pale body it just looks like a freakin mess. What happened to the cute and sunny olsen girls from holiday in the sun..
