What Was Mary-Kate Thinking?

01/18/2007 at 02:00 PM ET

If you’re asking yourself what is that wrapped around Mary-Kate Olsen — a tablecloth? a blanket? a grunge-inspired toga? — you’re not the only one. Turns out that it’s actually a $1700 wool wrap dress from the Marc Jacobs fall collection. We have some serious doubts about the dress itself, but combined with the naughty-librarian platform loafers and a beaded evening bag, it’s a head-scratcher of a look. We won’t even talk about the scrunchie in her hair. All in all, we think that no mega-bucks designer dress should ever be confused for a hastily tossed-on blanket. Tell us: What do you think of Mary-Kate’s outfit?

The funniest comment is when someone said they haven’t worked since 2004. First of they are running a business. Just because you don’t see them in movies doesn’t mean they aren’t working. Second of all, even if they had taken some time off, who cares??? THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING SINCE BEFORE THEY COULD EVEN WALK!!! I guarantee you haven’t been working since you were 6 months old. Maybe they deserve break??

It looks horrible. We all know that. Even the ones defending her knows it looks horrible. Of course, I see people everyday that are not dressed to my liking, but does it get published in the local papers, internet, magazines, news, etc? NO! I think that is where it all stems back to is that the american public is too damn crucial about EVERYTHING. Does it really matter that she decided to wear that that particular day and god forbid with a “scrunchie”. Geez, of the whole article that is the most bothersome. Why the hell does it matter what is in her hair??? One thing I will say is it completely surprises me that these two girls make an adorable line for young girls. My daughter has lots of their cothing. I would never guess they were the designers after seeing what they are wearing lately. Cheers!


Got glasses?????

It was me who said they haven’t worked since 2004, and like I said, they have other people designing those clothes, and running their business. They are reaping the benefits because they use pictures of them from when they were 15. So, if you call that, and getting your picture taken every once in a while for an ad “work” then, okay. Yep, been working since they were 6 months old.. with a million breaks and millions of dollars. I have been working everyday since I was 16, often overtime to take care of myself and my family, so you will have to excuse me if I get pissed off when some coke-headed celebrity barely works and makes millions of dollars. :-) But, I would not trade my beautiful mess of a life for hers anyday, no matter how much money she has! I’m happy, and hopefully, so are you Alice.

I think she looks disgusting. Her entire style lately has been completely gross. why wear the table cloth why not go for sumthing nicer… like the persian rug.

Marykate needs to seek therapy! She always looks a hot mess, while her sister always looks nice. In my opinion,
table cloths will never be in season!!

Normally I would rate Mary-Kate as fashion-trender and not a fasion-follower like the rest of the Hollywood A-listers, but this outfit was a bit off!

Kate on

Its the same bag shes carrying at a Golden Globes after party. I think she could have found the time to switch bags

I think that these poor girls have been in the public eye being critized, worshipped, looked up to, looked down on before they would speak!!! We take for granted that we were all allowed to just be! We didn’t have to work, we got the attention of our parents, we weren’t plopped in front of a camera and made to “be” someone they weren’t. Just think of the impact on a forming brain that would have! I think we all spend too much time critizing what the celeb’s are wearing, who they’re dating, what they are or are not eating, what they’re doing with their money, etc. How about taking a good long look in the mirror. To those poor people in thrid worlkd countries, we’re ALL rich! We have the ability to sit naked in our kitchens and run a tap! Seriously! Do any of you budget in an extra $100/ month to send to these people? Do the celeb’s write on forums…look at these people, just sitting around, not sending money away…they may have millions and billions and trillions of dollars but they also do a helluva lot more than we do.

As for her outfit…I could care less. I could whip out a thousand pictures of me that aren’t good. Bad hair days, when I first get out of bed, when I’m running to the store in my pj’s. None of this is significant to anyone other than me because I’m not “famous” but I am still a role model. I have children who look up to me and quite frankly I don’t think they could care less what I’m wearing.

Everyone needs to stop, take a deep breathe and start looking at them selves to make a difference and change the world instead of pointing fingers at the celebraties.
