What Was She Thinking? Mary-Kate Goes Grunge

10/25/2006 at 05:00 PM ET

Mary-Kate Olsen seems to be in a fashion time warp — first the Eighties and now the Nineties. The petite star emerged yesterday in an outfit reminiscent of the Grunge look popularized by bands like Nirvana — oversize flannel shirt and all. But like some other starlets we know, she seems to have left her pants at home, opting for thin leggings and ultra-clunky Balenciaga boots (and bag) to complete the look. We think leggings are great as a layering tool under long (read mid-thigh) tunics or sweaters, but with just a buttondown, Mary-Kate looks a tad overexposed. Tell us: What do you think of Mary-Kate’s look? Love it or hate it?

This outfit is so much better than what she usually wears, but that is not to say it is a nice outfit. It is just less awful than what she usually is seen in.
What alarms me is the look in her face. She always looks stunned. LIke a deer in the headlights. As well as deeply depressed. Lets not even mention what the effects of her years of nutritional deprivation must have done to her health. She looks like a sick young lady no matter what she wears.

I THINK THIS LOOK IS HIDIOUS BUT AT THE SAME TIME IT’S BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT IT’S A MESSAGE OR A SENSE OF EXPRESSION. IF I HAD AS MUCH MONEY AS HER & MY WHOLE LIFE WAS IN FRONT OF A CAMERA I WOULD FEEL THE NEED TO REBEL AND EXPLORE OPTIONS AND TRY DIFFERENT LOOKS. I THINK SHE’S JUST A FREE SPIRIT & DOESN’T CARE WHAT PEOPLE THINK (OBVIOUSLY) AND FOR THAT I ENVY HER. I MEAN THERE ARE A LOT OF US THAT WOULDN’T BE CAUGHT DEAD IN IT. BUT WHAT IF YOU COULD WEAR SOMETHING AND FEEL FREE IN IT? BEING GRUNGE IS ALL ABOUT DOING WHAT YOU WANT TO DO WHEN YOU WANT TO DO AND NOT CARING ABOUT ANYTHING. NOT HAVING A WORRY IN THE WORLD EXCEPT HAVING FUN AND LIVING LIFE. I DEFANTLY THINK THAT’S WHAT HER CLOTHES SAY.

Okay, what is this “comfy” bull. You can be “comfy” and STILL wear freakin pants! My goodness we’ve reached an all time low. Also, if she was going for the “comfy” look.. I highly doubt she would be wearing wicked witch of the west shoes. My version of comfy = jogging pants, tshirt, tennis shoes or slippers… comfy does NOT = button up shirt that takes several minutes to put on, tights that squeeze the heck out of my legs and stomach, platform boots that kill my feet, and a bag that looks like it weighs 50 pounds. Yeeeeaaaah… sounds real comfy! ;-)

most of the time she’s able to pull it off – other times it just looks like trash.

HATE IT! Your look says a lot about you….and I can’t say much about her in this outfit….
