Aside from the Met Gala, there’s one event that Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen are almost always guaranteed to show up to: the CFDA Awards. And this year, they did so in true Olsen fashion, with oversize silhouettes, neutral tones and their signature effortless swagger.
Ashley, in a black draping button-down coat and wine-colored clutch and Mary-Kate, in a menswear-inspired button down shirt, navy wide-leg pants and a black clutch, are nominated for the Accessories Designer of the Year award (which they won back in 2014) for their clothing and accessory line, The Row. And rightfully so. The brand boasts some of the priciest — and chicest — handbags on the market, with a $34,000 alligator backpack, among other designs.
The fashion-forward sisters paired their looks with another Olsen signature: center-parted golden waves that hairstylist Mark Townsend styled to textured perfection.

And Monday night’s nomination certainly isn’t the first for the stars. After being the two youngest designers to be inducted into the CFDA in 2009, the two took home the award for Accessories Designer of the Year for The Row in 2014, followed by Womenswear Designer of the Year in 2015. In 2016, the pair were nominated, yet didn’t win — but they attended the event with huge (rarely seen) smiles and a ton of cheer for their fellow designers.
