Why Mary-Kate Olsen Loves Her Chanel Purse

03/01/2007 at 03:00 PM ET

In our I Really Love My. . . gallery, we’ve noticed that Mary-Kate Olsen is not at all shy about recycling her favorite pieces. So, we got a kick reading a her piece in the New York Times Style magazine about why she loves her red Chanel purse so much. Turns out she stole it from twin sis Ashley, but we’ve seen her with the bag so many times that we can only picture it on her. Check out Mary-Kate’s essay on why she loves her Chanel purse, and then check out our I Really Love My gallery for more pieces that stars can’t get enough of.

It’s ugly. In the 3rd pic, her head looks huge and her arms look “meatless”!

No thank you.

All of these pictures reminds me of a little girl playing dress up with one of her mom’s old purses.

Love her!

Poor MK needs a stylist…asap…there’s nothing wrong with a red Chanel quilted purse, but like Melanie says, it looks like she’s playing dress up! Oh well.

the purse and it’s contents probably weigh more than her. :(

Love Her!!!

I think the purse is cute, but looks really bad with the gold dress.

amen to all the other comments…out of curiosity, has anyone else read her “essay” on why she loves the bag? It sounds like it’s been written by a kid in middle school!! wow…all that money…and not much else.

The red chanel purse goes really well with the black short dress, the white shirt and blue jeans are not a good combo and the gold with red dress clashes terribly.
