A not so good week for The Olsens...
I hate to say it (honestly) but Ashley and MK, do you think you could mix it up a little bit? This week in particular, your identikit outfits have left me a little weary. The pieces on their own are great, and yes, Halloween may be coming up, but why so much black?

Leave the black to Angelina and let us see your adventurous sense of style that we love you so much for? Mary Kate, you were a genius to bring your Balenciaga motorcycle bag out of hiding, and Ashley, I salute you for wearing that bright orange dress.. More of this please!



But It's a great week to be Gwen...



Gwen Stefani has really been on top form this week, reminding us why we love her so much. Obviously one of her favourite looks of the moment is plaid and she's been wearing a lot of it. Without a doubt, the best thing she's worn recently has to be those fantastic black and white tight trousers which joyfully clashed with Kingston's Burberry shirt (see, it can be done!)

And top marks for her get-up to the book launch of style.com's "Stylist: The Interpreters of Fashion”. This is one of the best outfits she's worn in a long time and with Anna Wintour among the guests, Stefani fully proved her capabilities, aas well as coming across all Marilyn Monroe.

Gwen looks beautiful! I love to see her.

Ana said...

love the pics of Gwen Stefani. Im so annoyed at all the people who call her a Madonna clone. I think shes established herself with her edgy punk plaids and houndstooths.

Mer said...

That's so true about the olsens sisters. Those pictures with colorful clothes almost changed my mind about them (I don't like them so much you know). It was a pleasure to see Gwen, and the last outfit, perfect. She is great. I love her voice and style.

Indeed that orange dress Ashley is wearing is hot! Hopefully next week brings us more excitement!

And Gwen looks soo hot in that plaid coat, is it a MQ??

Aretha said...

Gwen has a lovely dress in that last pic but I'm not a fan of her style. Too much going on for me

molly said...

yes i agree! the olsens need to mix it up.
i had an unpleasent incident earlier with one of those outfits where i wasnt sure which olsen was which for like five whole minutes!
it was humiliating, even though no one was around. it was humiliating to myself.

coco said...

I know what you mean even I have been a little dissapointed in the Olsen's this week
but they're aloud a week off
and I've been liking Gwen a whole lot more recently

The Clothes Horse said...

The Oslens can do no wrong for me, but the more colorful and adventurous outfits are definitely the more preferable. Gwen isn't looking half-bad either, its nice to see that becoming a mom hasn't hindered her style.

Romeika said...

Gwen's style rocks! I love her hair and make-up as well, she's really unique..

re: I agree! The Sartorialist doesn't only find very stylish people, he also captures more than the look, he captures the essence of the look and the person in it. I haven't seen "Atonement", it hasn't opened here:-( That's great that you loved it! I'm really looking forward for it.

Oh I'm a die-hard Olsen fan. They are so incredible. Gwen looks glam as ever. But does she take risks??

gwen stefani has been a MAJOR fashion icon lately...

brava.

and halloween is my favorite time of the year.

Allure said...

I also think the Olsen failed. Ashley should show off her figure, don't you think? Those wide-leg pants with a blouson...why does she hide such a great body? I don't get it.

The Attire said...

the olsens are so "yawn." I agree, what happened?

Jen (MahaloFashion.Com) said...

sometimes I think the olsen twins are beyond us, they make trends and they are so ahead with fashions
I agree with most of their fashion choices but then there are some that make you cringe but you can appreciate the effort. Really gutsy of ashley inthat orange dress! Oh and gwen has been looking out of this world, love her!

Avenue George said...

Gwen has looked super-cute recently! I was really impressed with her collection too ;)

Hey, I'm back!
I am not the Olsen's biggest fan, I do like their style but I generally think waht you just said here, that they wear fabulous pieces but some how always come across a bit samey, nothing stands out. I wish they would cut and brush their hair too!
Oh Gwen looks fabulous in that last picture! I want her hair!

Like that picture too, the apples in the back. Those colors! Nooo, I don't read the French Vogue. But lately I'm having trouble with what is written in the magazines. It's not very interesting to me. Maybe it's time for me to switch from teen to the 'grown up' magazines. Maybe you know a couple of unknown magazines?

Juliet said...

Olsen's have never quite convinced me.

I really liked Gwen's dressy shorts and square shimmer tank look. Maybe because her hair doesn't seem so severe? She looks beautiful.

emsie said...

i agree, gwen stefani has come up with some great outfits lately, particularly that last one you showed

molly said...

nooooooooo it was just one picture! i can tell them apart! i SWEAR.

riz said...

Dustcakeboy said...

Gwen looks sublime. Great blog!

Adding you now, add me to if you do so wish!

atelier said...

I am not a fan of Olsen's (but I have to recognize their great style) and lately they look like if someone they love had died. They always look serious and in black. I would like to get why.

said...

i am a huge fan of the olsens and i know what you mean. on the other hand gwen is kinda getting on my nerves.. i feel like she wears sort of the sam thing every timne

LML said...

Bojana said...

Been away for one week and missed a lot. It's hard to keep track of everything on the net/blogosphere when you leave for some time!

I love Gwen's outfits. And that orange dress of Ashley is gorgeous.

Okay now I need to post too.

You know you love me,
xoxo
