Covering this year’s Vogue‘s Best Dressed issue, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen join other stylish celebrity sibs to prove that in fashion, it’s so much friendlier with two.

But what delineates The Row designers from pairings including Kate and Pippa Middleton, Dakota and Elle Fanning, BeyoncĂ© and Solange Knowles and Rooney and Kate Mara to handily win Vogue readers’ stamp of approval? Perhaps it’s the sisters’ keen understanding of not only the business of fashion, but also what makes the other tick.

“I feel like Mary-Kate’s constantly evolving,” Ashley recently told Net-a-Porter of her sister’s style. “What she does is when she finds a proportion or a silhouette or a specific outfit, she’ll wear it until she’s over it — which could be a week or it could be a year.”

And while Mary-Kate dubs her sister “very classic and modern,” she contends that Ashley is not without her idiosyncrasies. “There’s always sort of a sense of a bohemian vibe,” she continues, “[She’s] quirky, modern, bohemian.”

WTF? They’re style icons to an old bag lady!

L on

Who did they pay to get this award? Because them winning a fashion award is a joke. They dress as if they have no fashion sense at all.

And you are…?

kirill on

If you’re familiar with the fashion world of New York and europe, they are fashionable young ladies. Also,have you looked at the fashion in a Vogue magazine?!

@Pam – If you’re refering to New york/europe fashion as “the homeless look,” then yes – these two nail it.How in the heck did these two beat out everyone else? Yes, Vogue fashion pushes the envelope – but these two dress like BUMS…they are very pretty and could do so much better, they have even stopped smiling in their pictures lately. they’ve been in this “trend” for the past few years, where is the “evolving?” I think Lady Gagas shock worthy outfits are better than these two

If they dress in style, I’m glad I’m out of style.

Jordan on

Proves how little credibilty Vogue has.

Catherine on

Lol @ Carri! I couldn’t agree more. Oversized ponchos and sunken in cheeks…no thanks!

This must be a joke. These girls are not fashionistas, they need to hire a stylist stat. At least Pippa wear clothes that an actual being can wear and go out with. C’mon vogue, don’t choke me by forcing these two down my throat.
