Up until now, you probably though that Mary-Kate Olsen lived and breathed fashion and style - you know, one of those really annoying girls that are just, like, born with it. But, according to MK, she never used to read fashion magazines; her favourite piece of clothing used to be a pair of leopard and white fringed spandex shorts; and she only found her style in 2003 when she and her sister Ashley were finally allowed to stop dressing as a duo. ‘Until we were 13 or 14, if my sister and I did an appearance we would be wearing the same outfit. It would be the same dress and we'd fight over who would wear it in red and who would wear it in black,' she revealed to Interview Magazine. ‘I remember the first time we were really able to choose our own clothes for an event was at the Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle premiere. I chose to wear this Zandra Rhodes dress - now I've collected a lot of her pieces - and I put a diamond butterfly brooch in my hair. You know, that's still one of my top favourite looks.'
