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?

That is the ugliest outfit I have ever seen. I can not believe she paid for that.. how that designer made 1500 bucks off a couple yards of fabric he found at walmart.. does not make sense! I don’t get how the twins keep dressing like they shop at Walmart..and like bums! Come on, dress like you’re rich like Katie and Posh! If I had a couple million I would definetly shop at rich stores, not thrift shops or stuff they found out of a dumpster haha!

I think this outfit wouldn’t be so bad if she 1) had the wrap or dress, whatever; fitted and shortened to about knee length, and 2) Not have the tie on the side that makes her look like she just had a one night stand with some guy.

I really don’t mind the hair( although it does need to see a hair dresser and colorist) and i can live with the shoes, but this girl needs to see Tim Gunn. Quickly.

She looks like a crazy bag lady.
The hobo look is not in style, and I don’t think it ever will be.
Mary-Kate desperately needs a stylist and someone to tell her to eat something. I understand she was anorexic, but I thought she was past that. Shouldn’t she be gaining weight instead of relapsing?
I just think that someone needs to do something about the way she looks, because its not good at all.

she looks horrible…. So much money for nothing. She should make that money useful and give it to the poor that need it instead of wasting it on Ugly stuff But then I have to admit those platforms are cute!

Love it love it love it!!! This girl is really developing an interesting style. Keep it up girl!

Horrible. With as much money as this girl has, can’t she afford a stylist and a decent hair stylist? Or at the very least a mirror?
