Lynn Yaeger Hearts the Olsens Too!

by

It’s nice to know that we are not the only freaks thinking about/worshiping the Olsen twins this week. Lynn Yaeger marvels at their modern glamour in her column:

Actually, when it comes to glamour, believe it or not, the first name that springs to mind is someone—OK, two people: the entity that played Michelle, the ugly baby on Full House. This creature may not have been much of a looker in her early years, but she—they—have grown up to be the style icons of the 21st century.

I’m not kidding! I love the Olsens! I love the way they mix vintage and unbelievably expensive designer stuff, the way they wrap their little emaciated bodies in yards and yards of fabric, their no-holds-barred trash-bag aesthetic.

In fact, the piece is not really about MK and Ash, but about Dita Von Teese, who Yaeger spent some time with recently. Check it out, people.
