Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are Met Gala staples, wearing some of the most memorable gowns of the night through the years – and in 2018, they didn’t disappoint. The designers, creators of The Row and Elizabeth and James, came to conquer the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala in their own designs.
As they stepped out for the biggest night in fashion on Monday, May 7, the Olsen sisters made a somewhat subtle nod to the night’s theme of “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” with their color choices and statement jewelry. Mary-Kate and Ashley wore pieces from The Row – they also dressed Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig – and we’re still in awe of their boho looks.
Mary-Kate chose a simple long black gown, keeping all eyes on the big statement piece she wore around her neck: a large necklace resembling a piece of armor à la Joan of Arc. Ashley, on the other hand, opted for color – and lots of it – wearing a patchwork silk gown with an equally stunning rosary necklace, tying back to the religious theme. Her look was topped off with a jeweled headband that we definitely wish we could get our hands on ASAP.
