Hollywood stormed Tokyo this weekend for a see-and-be-seen party at cutting-edge fashion boutique Opening Ceremony. The shop’s co-founders, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, were on hand to greet their stylish guests, which included actress Kirsten Dunst, designer Alexander Wang and Greek shipping heir (and former flame of Paris Hilton) Stavros Niachros. Designing sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were hard to miss at the event in their tulle animal ears — mouse for Ashley and rabbit for Mary-Kate — while they signed garments from their own label The Row. Even SNL star Andy Samberg was there, and joked to WWD, “I come to Tokyo once a week. I have a lot of stocks out here…I’m mainly just here on business.” Contented guests sipped sake from wooden cups while taking in the collections. The night ended on a fashionable high-note with revelers heading to an after-party at the Liquid Room, where The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas gave an exclusive preview of his first solo album.

The twins have had every opportunity (and the money) to be real fashion trend setters. Instead, they’re just wearing rags and looking sloppy. Too bad, ladies. You started off so well!

I wish these girls would clean themselves up. That bohemian look is repulsive on them. Some people can pull off that look; NOT these gals. Their long, wild and unkempt manes, their oversized clothing, those chunky roach stompers on their little stick legs…clean it up. They say they’re fashion mavens, but I think quite the opposite. Dress your age and wash your face.

Designers? What a joke. Those two have never designed any thing. The company was set up by their parents and run by others until they took over at 18. They set in meetings and approve talented peoples designs. They are two rich, unattractive, Hollywood Hyped Celebrities with no talent. They look like refugees from a WWII concentration camp most of the time.

Looks like they might finally be eating for a change

What’s up with Mary Kay’s face. She looks really puffy in a couple of close up pictures that I’ve seen lately. US Magazine and the one above.

I love Mary-Kate and Ashleys fashion lines and yes they do design everything – When they were at NYU Ashley interned for Zac Posen and even before that they had their kid line at Wal Mart. Although they look a bit weird with the ears they are just dressing how most ‘trendy’ people their age dress is Tokyo. Something to do with Anime characters..
