There's no doubt that when Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen walk a red carpet, people take notice. And that's just what happened at the ELLE Style Awards 2010, held earlier this evening, February 22, at Grand Connaught Rooms in London, England. The twins were being honored with the "Style Icon" Award, which celebrated their unique and individual fashion personalities. MK & A went all out in their ensembles, both wearing couture creations that have been created and modified specifically with each girl in mind. Ashley wowed in a metallic beige and blue Christian Lacroix Spring 2010 gown with a tulle train that seemed to go on for miles, while Mary-Kate chose a black Lanvin gown with leather gloves and a black fur shrug. If you are feeling inspired by the sisters Olsen and their statement making looks, why not opt for a few similar pieces from CoutureCandy? I know these are not couture gowns, but for a similarly glamorous maxi dress to Ashley's, check out Karen Zambos' Maxi Dress in Ivory or Sue Wong's Goddess Gown with Beading Detail in Beige, accompanied by a complimentary metallic clutch (like Inge Christopher's Marie Metallic Boa Clutch in Gold). If you long to cross over to the dark side, check out either Sue Wong's Vintage Beaded Maxi Dress in Black or her Hollywood Glamour Dress in Black with a patent crocodile clutch (take a look at Elaine Turner's Bella Croc Patent Clutch in Black). Don't forget the fab leather gloves with a few statement making cocktail rings. What do you think readers, who looks best here - MK or A? I'm torn on this one... I need you to weigh in!

Ashley's gown is not classy or chic...seriously? Ha it looks like a bad rumpled art project, fitted to unflatter! Again, the shoes Ashley, they do not fit the dress. Who dresses these girls? Who does there hair, it always looks drab, no shine, a rats nest. Do they own a brush?guest on Feb 24 2010 @ 02:05 PM

EFCFAEAC54F5EFBF6EE6135BC9764AB1#33#Both of these girls look like they are trying to hard to be fashionable. Fashion doesn't have to be overdone like this. Again Ashley looks bigger than she should, she also needs to get a tan or work on her legs! Again the shoes don't fit the style of the dress, those shoes should be worn with some fitted jeans. The dress is just horrible, ill-fitted, looks like she has "junk in her trunk." MK get rid of the sheer black tulle, looks rediculious...this is how we get the "what not to wear" photos. -Rihaguest on Feb 24 2010 @ 02:07 PM

Ashly dress is amazing!
Springs is rolling in and its amazing! LAMB, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Geren Ford and sooo much more!guest on Feb 25 2010 @ 11:56 AM
Ashley's dress is amazing! not everybody wants to look small and get a fake tan. This is fashion; she is playing with it and having fun breaking all those rules the rest are soooo obsessed with. I guess for some this is just too much because they play it safe. She has never done it and so far... for me she is the bestguest on Feb 25 2010 @ 05:09 PM
