Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have never been ones for "conventional" fashion. Take the time they showed up to the Met Gala in matching Victorian mourning wear, for instance. Or the time they convinced us that we all need a $39,000 crocodile backpack in our closets. Or all of the times they wore oversize sunglasses inside.
The twins have always had a style that's unique (their Full House days notwithstanding), so it's no surprise that their dresses for their friend's wedding are nothing like the matchy-matchy, taffeta monstrosities people normally associate with the phrase "bridesmaids."
According to E!, the Passport to Paris stars (OK, fine—designers of "The Row") served as bridesmaids for longtime friend Cassie Coane over the weekend. Coane, the creative director of luxury watch line Gomelsky, wed her now-husband Jim Koenig in a private ceremony in the Hudson Valley area of New York. Her bridal party was filled with some of the fashion industry's most stylish "It" girls, including Sarah Staudinger of Staud and Harley Viera-Newton of HVN—each of whom donned their own take on an ethereal floral dress.
"When the bride says wear floral, you wear floral," Kyle Miller, founder of Love Yoga and fellow bridal party member, joked in a video posted to her Instagram account that shows off the Olsen twins' outfits.
All colors, styles, and patterns were seemingly represented in the well-heeled (and well-dressed) group, but even among the chicest of the chic, MK + A still somehow managed to stand out. Ashley wore a black, long-sleeved dress with white embroidery, and Mary-Kate (who, in all the photos, is literally standing to the side of the rest of the group) donned a kimono-inspired mini dress, floral-and-jewel headpiece, and green satin Balenciaga mules.
As stunning and mismatched dresses are, this seems like a seriously missed opportunity for #twinning. You know, just saying.
