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?

Sorry Jackson, I have better things to do than pick on a little girl that I’ve never even met before. Like I said, I’m not that insecure with myself to have to do so. Hopefully, one day you will get to that point in your life too.

I wouldn’t go with the look myself, but it actually doesnt look half bad on her. Compared to the crap she usually wears, this was ok.

what the hell is she thinking that isn’t a dress. she has all the money in the world and she and her sister can’t dress themselves to look good they look like ho bos

rita, i disagree: no one HATES the olsen twins. why/how could we?? we just intensely dislike how they don’t take care of themselves and always look so sickly and disheveled. it’s a little puzzling as to WHY anyone w/their potential looks and documented resources would take the fashion route that they do, so naturally it will cause a lot of speculation. ‘hate’ is a strong word and doesn’t need to be used when referring to these harmless blogs where people are ASKED to comment.

This reminds me of the man’s flannel shirt, last night’s black tights, and ankle boots she wore out a few months ago.

MK, one college student to another, most girls try to HIDE it when they are doing the walk of shame. Will we be hearing stories soon, or are you just trying to introduce frat ho’ chic?

MARY-KATE–FASHION ALERT. SHE NEEDS TO BE THE NEXT STAR ON “WHAT NOT TO WEAR”

SHE COULD BE SO BEAUTIFUL, CLASSY, ELEGANT, CUTE, FUN, ANYTHING SHE WANTED TO BE, SHE CAN. SHE CHOOSES THESE UGLY SHOES, CLOTHES, EVEN HER HAIR.

SHE’S A FAR CRY FROM A REBEL. SHE’S A WALKING DISASTER. HOW COULD SHE TURN HERSELF INTO THIS UGLY AND UN-NATURAL PERSON. SHE’S TRYING TO BE SOMETHING SHE WILL NEVER BE, HOPEFULLY SHE’LL COME TO HER SENSE SOONER THAN LATER.

SHE JUST LOOKS LIKE SKIN AND BONES…PRETTY SOON SHE WILL DISAPPEAR AND NO WILL EVEN KNOW, SHE’S LIKE A WALKING DEAD GIRL…GROSS!

PLZ. MK–GROW UP AND TRY BEING YOURSELF FOR ONCE, NOT SOMETHING YOU’RE NOT AND WILL NEVER BE. ALL IN ALL IT JUST MAKES YOU LOOK PRETTY FAKE AND AN ATTENTION SEEKER.

The wrap itself wouldn’t be so bad, but the undershirt kinda kills the look, the shoes don’t work with the outfit, nor does the bag and she is really a very pretty girl, she needs to fix her hair to a nice natural color and learn how to put on some make up that doesn’t make her look like she is 1/2 dead and she would be super cute.

Alice, I’m not picking on the poor little ugly girl. Everyone who responded were asked their opinion. My mother always told me that opinions are like assholes – everyone has one and some of them stink. We don’t all have to agree and that’s okay. As for being insecure – I’m a very happy and healthy 47 year old woman and can’t wait until tomorrow! Life is good in my part of the world! Maybe we’ll agree on the next one – can’t ever tell!

Rebecca on

Actually, this is not nearly as bad as some of her other outfits. I just wish she’d fix her hair back to a more natural shade.

A SCRUNCHIE?!? Who in their right minds wears a scrunchie out of the house? Sarah Jessica Parker and the TPS guy from Office Space totally broke up over this exact fight on Sex and the City.
