Will Mary-Kate Olsen Design Her Own Wedding Dress? Three Looks That Prove She Can Definitely Design Bridal

05/13/2014 at 01:52 PM ET

We know there’s one major wedding dress on everyone’s mind right now (hi, Kim Kardashian), but there’s more celeb bridal buzz circulating that’s pretty exciting. Mary-Kate Olsen might be designing her own dress.

“I’m not even there yet,” she told WWD when asked about selecting a gown for her upcoming nuptials to Olivier Sarkozy. “I think it may be a matter of getting five or six, or making two or three and being stressed out. That seems kind of far away. We’ll take one step at a time.”

Mary-Kate and her twin sister Ashley Olsen are the design duo behind The Row and Elizabeth and James — so we decided to look back at three different looks from their two labels that prove Mary-Kate has shown plenty of design potential for a bridal gown (we already know they’re just her style).

A Formal Affair: The gorgeous white gown by The Row, worn by Ashley to the 2009 Met Gala, shows how well The Row can do gowns. Both Olsens love to experiment with excess fabric, and we don’t picture Mary-Kate in an over-the-top bridal number. A voluminous white shift like this one is probably the closest the bride-to-be will ever get to a traditional ballgown.

A Boho Soirée: Younger sister Elizabeth Olsen (who is also engaged!) wore this embroidered lace design from The Row to the Cannes Film Festival in 2011, and it screams outdoor wedding — possibly in some Parisian gardens. All that’s needed? A floral crown. Plus, a look like this would complement her vintage diamond-and-sapphire engagement ring really well.

A Courthouse Union: For a more intimate ceremony, Mary-Kate might consider designing a simple white dress. This Elizabeth and James “Theon” look (recently spotted on Debby Ryan) features a coated eyelet material that has a casual bridal feel.

What type of dress do you picture for Mary-Kate? Share your thoughts below.

Couldn’t care less about Kim’s wedding but am quite excited to see Mary-Kate’s gown. She’ll be a beauty! I’m anxious to see if she and maybe her sister too will design it. Congrats, Mary-Kate! :)

Even though Mary-Kate is of age, it’s like he’s a pedophile, She’s still so child like and he’s a creepy old man.

She’ll design something that looks like it’s three times too big for her, or something very granny-like…just like evrything else she wears.

Babushka on

Please dont’…

Sweets on

Uh not everyone is excited about the Kanye West wedding… just the people on their payroll.

Those 3 dresses shown are ugly and if that’s what’s in store than she’s probably gonna have an ugly dress.

LM on

Like Bee, I’m way more excited about this wedding. MK definitely has unusual style, but the clothes she designs are very good. I hope she goes with simple and elegant!

Sarah S. on

The title is misleading. “Making” the dress means she will be sewing it. Designing and making are two different things.

Denverpeet on

Should be easy for her….she will make it like e rest of her clothes all she needs is a white sack!
