Aw yeeeeeah! Y’all, Jenna Lyons is my specspiration. And Solange Knowles is my hairspiration! Imagine if I combined these forces, how sartorially powerful would I be?!

The answer is, not as sartorially powerful as the Olsen twins, who yesterday were named womenswear designers of the year for their high-end label, The Row, which I dream of having in my wardrobe some day in the future. I love Ashley’s dress (and you wonder why!) and I quite like Mary-Kate’s hair this dark, although I’ll always love them best as blondes.

I feel like these two photos are such opposite ends of the spectrum: from full-on colour and print, with nerd glasses and afro hair, to seriously demure maxis on the Olsen goth twins. Which is your preferred style?
