Ashley Olsen Makes It Onto The CFDA's Board, And Mary-Kate Doesn't.
November 18, 2013
If you grew up in the 90’s, you and your friends definitely played “Are you a Mary-Kate or Ashley Olsen?” Ashley’s were the goody two-shoes girly girls, and Mary-Kate’s were the badass tomboys. It’s no surprise that years later, Mary-Kate got the “bad twin” rep. She’s known to have a temper and crazy mood swings. So when we got word that Ashley landed a new fashion job and Mary-Kate didn’t we thought it was kind of amusing. Ashley was elected to the Council of Fashion Designers of America‘s board last month, and Mary-Kate wasn’t.
Kate Spade‘s president and chief creative officer Deborah Lloyd and designer Prabal Gurung also received an invitation-only membership. The board consists of 400 designers who work in America or who are American working abroad. We wonder why MK wasn’t asked to join with her sis? The both do The Row and Elizabeth and James. Guess the CFDA knows about that bad twin rep and doesn’t want to deal with it…
