Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen have a style all their own, no doubt about it. From designing one of New York’s top luxury brands, The Row, to consistently topping street style charts, there is a very good reason we always pay attention to these sisters’ arrival to the Met Gala year after year. They may seem altogether uninterested in the red carpet excitement, but this event’s stage is all theirs. Ashley and Mary-Kate consistently incorporate their own signature looks into theme after theme. Perhaps most memorable was their debut in 2005 celebrating The House of Chanel when both rocked a natural curl and brightening jewel-toned necklaces, as their flowing dresses quickly became their iconic Met Gala looks. Not to be forgotten however, were the looks the twins donned at the 2013 PUNK exhibit celebration. Both looks were flowing with just a bit of sparkle; a refreshing and welcome take on the night’s theme. Here, we take a look back at all of their past looks to the Met Gala.
