The Other Face of Ashley Olsen

Work it! Ashley Olsen posed for the camera and chatted with Marc Jacobs for the latest issue of V MAN - check out just a few quotes from the interview below:

On doing a "celebrity line": "The way I look at it, I had a career as a child. I had a career in an industry in which the media kind of... they're obsessed with the young girl thing. But when I turned 18, I moved to New York, and I haven't really done anything to be a celebrity. I've been transitioning from acting as a kid to doing something that I'm choosing for myself - to be a part of the fashion industry... the outside perception is very different because you do have celebrity brands, people like Jessica Simpson and Kimora Lee Simmons, and those are celebrity brands because they have their names on them."

On working with Mary-Kate: "The Row is really something that I'm doing while my sister still wants to focus on acting. She's my partner in The Row, but she trusts me with the every day. I mean, I see her like ten times a day."

On being different from her twin sister: "When I was 14, 15, 16, 17, it was harder because the two of us were still very similar. We had to work through what's special about us, and then the media had to work through it... I've never been one to engage the media to say that I'm different. I actually did the opposite and I totally went internal. I was like, "See y'all!" I want to be behind the scenes, and I don't want people to know anything about my personal life. I have a job, I take it very seriously, and I work really hard."

I LOVE the Olsen twins for my birthday I got the Influence book they have out its good!

Dream Sequins said...

She does look EDGIER as a brunette... and I love it. She's always been the more business minded, serious Olsen twin, and I've always favored the slightly more tragic stance of MK... but after the Met Ball incident, I'm becoming more of an Ashley O fan!

I like how they changed her look and I admire her for not putting their names on their clothing lines.

As for the Tracy Feith dress, I bought a 5, (I usually buy a 3 or 5) and it's super short, but fits well. The fabric is really thin, and the bodices of his dresses are very fitted, they don't run as large as previous GO International collections. Good luck!
