What’s better than Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen hitting the CFDA Awards red carpet dressed in all black, doing their high-fashion duo act? An Olsen sister trio dressed in all black, of course.

Elizabeth Olsen showed up to the event arm-in-arm with her fashion-designer siblings, who are up for not one, but two awards for their line, The Row. “They’re nominated for two CFDA awards this year, for accessory and for [best] designer … so it’s really exciting,” she told PEOPLE at an event on Saturday.

Mary-Kate and Ashley, who have won the title of both Womenswear Designer of the Year and Accessories Designer of the Year twice in the past, showed up wearing matching black flowing outfits and square-toed heels. And though she’s often spotted sporting brighter shades, Elizabeth supported her sisters by wearing a high-neck gown straight out of her big sisters’ playbook, with lots of fabric and in their favorite color.

As for their hair, the ladies’ go-to stylist Mark Townsend went for textured side-parted waves on Mary-Kate, who “wanted her hair to look like she came directly from the beach” and a middle-parted, naturally-dried textured look on Ashley. He accentuated both sisters’ natural texture with curling irons and finished off with Dove’s Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo for extra fullness and texture. For Elizabeth’s “sleek and healthy half ponytail,” Townsend gave her a smooth blowout, pulled the top section into an elastic, and misted MK&A’s ELizabeth and James Nirvana White Dry Shampoo to add shine and fragrance.

And when it comes to dressing like MK&A, the two make it easy for their younger sis — in fact, she gets first dibs on their designs. “I just got a shipment,” she told PEOPLE about her ever-growing clothing collection from The Row. “It’s really great; I feel very lucky. They’re amazing and so comfortable and really cool.”
