Bye-bye blonde! Ashley Olsen, 22, who typically sports blonde tresses, got in touch with her dark side and dons a dark brown wig for a pictorial in VMAN magazine’s upcoming summer issue, of which PEOPLE.com has an exclusive preview. While Ashley appears serious and sultry in the photos, which were shot by Sebastian Faena, off-camera, she tells the magazine, “I’m definitely a hippie girl.” On the career front, Ashley says fashion is in her future, not acting. “I’ve been transitioning from acting as a kid to doing something that I’m choosing for myself-to be part of the fashion industry,” says Ashley, who helms The Row, a luxury women’s fashion collection expanding into men’s wear in the fall. Adds Ashley of her plans to conquer Seventh Avenue: “That’s what I want for my future. It has nothing to do with my past, nothing to do with anyone else’s agenda. And I followed my heart the whole way. But the outside perception is very different because you do have celebrity brands, people like Jessica Simpson and Kimora Lee Simmons, and those are celebrity brands because they have their names on it.” Although she and her twin Mary-Kate may appear to be cut from the same cloth, that’s not the case in terms of their ambitions. “The Row is really something that I’m doing while my sister still wants to focus on acting. She’s my partner in The Row, but she trusts me with the everyday. I mean, I see her like ten times a day.” –David Caplan

I like it. The pants make her look like she has hips…curves are good!

Yet another important article from People. Americans are losing their jobs, losing their homes, paying more in taxes, but reading about some rich bimbo “getting in touch with her dark side” is more important. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

These poor, unfortunate looking little things. Their wealth is a true testament to the power of merchandising. This poorly designed outfit draws attention to the poor thing’s short waist and the makeup completes the whole mess. This photograph (along with the countless other People shots of the poor little Olsen twins) brings new meaning to the statement that money cannot buy beauty. Painful to look at.

She needs to stop talking about things she obviously knows nothing about. Kimora Lee Simmons is CREATIVE DIRECTOR of ALL of Phat fashions. She doesn’t just slap her name on items that other people design and choose for her, she has a hand in EVERYTHING that goes on the racks.
