Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen: MET Smokers
Look, the Olsens are never going to come to the MET Gala hoping to please you. If they end up on PEOPLE’s Best Dressed List they would probably burn down their entire studio. It is never, ever their intention to appeal to the MiniVan Majority. They are not Elie Saab. But this coat on Ashley? And this black tumble on Mary-Kate? I guarantee you the fabric and the construction are as luxurious as any you’ll find anywhere.
That said, back to the age thing…
They’re only 29 years old, turning 30 in June. And, well, I feel like it’s not just the prune-facing that’s affecting them. They LOOK like they’re smokers now. If you’ve been reading this blog a while, you know how I feel about cigarettes. I miss them. Smoking is bad for you, I know, I can hear you. But it doesn’t mean those of us who used to do it don’t still love it even if we don’t do it anymore.
I quit smoking (cigarettes) a few years ago. Right away you could tell on my skin. And I wasn’t even a heavy smoker. These two? They are heavy smokers. It’s showing. If you’re out there and you need some incentive, does this help?
