Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are expanding their fashion empire yet again, this time with handbags! The sisters are launching a nine-bag collection from their brand, The Row, including a day tote, backpack, doctor bag and classic shoulder bag made from luxe materials like python and alligator. (The goods will hit Barneys New York in August.) And although the actresses-turned-designers are clearly connoisseurs of the fashion world, when it comes to their own personal style philosophies, they wear what makes them happiest. “I dress for me and usually whatever suits my mood,” Mary-Kate tells sister Ashley in a chat on Barneys.com, for which the pair interviewed each other. For Ashley, wardrobe staples are all about simplicity. “A great pair of vintage jeans, a tailored suit, a crisp white button down, Parisian stripes, and a great men’s watch,” she lists to Mary-Kate. Do they covet fashions from a certain time period? Not necessarily. “There are important style contributions from almost every era,” Ashley shares. “Drawing on the right references at the right time is the key.” But don’t expect to see them following any recycled trends. “My problem is not with the trends themselves,” says Mary-Kate, “but the fact that trends are constantly repeating themselves.” –Kim Peiffer

I don’t agree. Acting is not something that enpdeds on whether you’re twin or not. Have you seen the Phelps brothers (Fred and George Weasley)in the Harry Potter films? I think they are very good. You may have had these bad experiences because it’s not easy to find twins who share this talent, and are talented enough. But I don’t think it’s impossible.cpa
