In honour of their newly launched eveningwear collection for Elizabeth & James, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen spoke to the teen-centric UK magazine Miss Vogue about all things fashion. The interview is short but oh so sweet, revealing everything from the twins’ ultimate wardrobe staples to the best career advice they’ve ever received (highlight: “No is a full sentence.”). When it came to identifying their top style crushes, however, Mary-Kate’s answer totally threw us for a loop, given the girls’ tendency to cite older women like Lauren Hutton in this category. Her answer?
“Gigi Hadid—whether she's on the carpet or the street, she always looks effortless and cool.”
Well, we certainly don’t disagree, and if we were Hadid we’d be riding pretty high on this endorsement right now. For Ashley’s part, she called out Amber Heard—also well deserved—for her “bohemian look with a touch of edge.” Leave it to MK&A to answer a very common question with two uncommon answers that make us wonder why we didn’t think of them first!
