Has Mary-Kate Gone Working Girl?

03/28/2007 at 04:55 PM ET

Is this a whole new Mary-Kate Olsen we’re seeing? Where are the clunky shoes, the over-sized cardigans, the absence of pants? We can barely recognize the petite star in her trendy wide-leg pants, pale pink button-down shirt and darker golden-blonde locks. As she leaves an office building in L.A., she almost looks — dare we say it? — professional and conservative in her new ensemble. But don’t worry, the white sunglasses and chunky cocktail rings still give the outfit the signature Mary-Kate spin. Tell us: What do you think of Mary-Kate’s new look? Do you love it or miss the old funkier style?

Personally I think this is a terrible look for Mary Kate. The pants are clearly too big for her and although the wide leg look is “in” and you can see what she was going for she didn’t pull it off.

I completely agree nhilario. Mary-Kate and Ashley are very pretty girls. I would also like to see them wear clothes that fit. Not squeeze or are tight on their bodies, but clothes that dress them accordingly. I also agree the accessories they wear are overwhelming on them and their hairstyles just don’t give them justice. I also think that some of the make-up that is put on them can be a bit extreme, especially with the racoon-eye make-up, over extreme red lipstick. They look so much more older than they really are. I agree to acting mature and dressing mature, but they can still be young and hip too. These girls are so pretty and I hate it when they get such a bad wrap. My cousin has been a fan of them since she was a little girl and watching them grow up and she can’t believe the way they have turned out. Even though their outfits are out there, I do have to applaud them for being “good girls.” Meaning they are staying out of trouble (not being the next Paris Hilton). I haven’t heard anything about them being like that anyways.

As for MK’s outfit, I also think it’s refreshing. This look looks nice on her. I love the pants, but I think the width of the pants may be too oversized for her petite frame. However, I think the look would have been pulled together if she were to put her hair in a ponytail.

I did read somewhere that one of the twins was looking to get a nose job and the other twin thought it was a great idea and they both may be getting a nose job. I HOPE that story isn’t true. I try not to read too much into things and not believe, but I hope it’s not true and just a mumbo-jumbo story. They are pretty just the way they are.

She looks pretty good. I don’t care much for the pants but it’s not a bad get up. I even like her hair. It looks not bad. Please someone pinch me! I must be dreaming. I never thought I’d like what she’s wearing.

Oh wow, for a second I thought this was a picture of me which kind of scared me for a second. I think the style is cute. I was just in New York wearing the same outfit including the white legged pants (which I loved), shirt, sunglasses and black shoulder bag. Except I wore a chiffon scarf with the top because it was a little to plain with just the shirt.
Maybe if Mary-Kate added that, but I still think she looks great here.
I’m still not sure if she fits too well considering that it is an old look for a shorter girl but if she can work it, she can make it.

LOVE that girl. This is the best outfit I’ve seen her in in a LONG TIME. LOOOOOOOVE IT!

Those pants are a good move, but she’s still trying to hide her body in that baggy size 2 ;)
it’s still an upgrade i guess.. she went from oddball bag lady to oddball bag lady on a job hunt

OMG I am in shock! Her clothes actually look like they are store boought instead of found in the trash. I love her and Ashley I hope this is going to stick and maybe get better. Her hair still looks horrible but i forgive her lol.

Im not even kidding about this: This girl has to be one of the most unattractive people on the planet. I honestly feel bad for her because of her face.
