>> So I put my mad Sherlock Holmes skills to work again last night, and was able to deduce that you guys are super interested in three people -- Kate Moss, Mary Kate Olsen, and Ashley Olsen (since I did get two separate emails about the same three people like ten minutes apart). So here's a little some'n some'n to whet your tastes:
Question Numero Uno:
"Hi! Thanks for finding the brand of MK's boots last time!! Since you're so good at it... I thought I'd give you another try... I was wondering if you happened to know who made these sandals that everyone (Ashley Olsen, Kate Moss, Nicole Kidman) seems to be wearing." - Chi
Hello my friend, we meet again. I know you want to get down to business, so let's do it. I looked at the pictures you provided me with, and looks to me like Miss Ashley Olsen has been trekking around town in a pair of black Bernardo Mistrals, which retail for $89.
Coincidentally, the pair of shoes Kate Moss is wearing in the picture you sent me are also Bernardos. Hers are the black Millys, also available for $89.
And now on to Query #2:
"Hi, I am particularly interested in the styles of Kate Moss, and Mary-Kate and Ashley. I was wondering if you had further insight into where they get their clothing or what brands they wear."
Absolutely -- since you didn't have any specific questions, I'm just gonna pick an outfit or two from each person you mentioned. Really though, the whole deal with these girls is that they mix and match high street stuff, vintage stuff, and runway stuff. That's why their outfits are so interesting in the first place -- all of them are very eclectic.
So obviously you have the two pairs of shoes above to start you off, and Mary Kate's boots, red Dita sunglasses, tank, scarf, and pants that I've all found before.
For a few more Mary Kate finds: on the left there, she's wearing her Dita shades, a vintage Chanel bag, and the Alexander McQueen pirate scarf from his Spring/Summer 2003 collection. On the right, she's wearing a linen blazer by Marni that is available at bluefly.com for $549. Mary Kate is just all about the layers, the non-matching, the grunge... dumpster chic, as I'm sure you've heard before.
As far as Ashley's style, in the recent picture on the left, she's carrying a Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Leather Bag with Grommets, available at net-a-porter.com for $2180. Her shoes are the Mukluks that were so popular this past winter, retailing for $395. On the right is Ash in the cover pic of the July 2005 Harper's Bazaar, wearing a gorgeous dress from Zac Posen's Fall/Winter 2005 line. Generally speaking, Ash just has much more of a penchant for put-together, feminine looks than MK does, and you can see that come through in the second picture. As far as more information on both of their styles, I would suggest taking a look (when you have a good chunk of free time) at this thread on MKA -- the people keep up with candids really well, and they know their clothing.
While MKA tend to shop the whole realm of fashiondom, I would venture to say that Kate Moss sticks more to the high-end stuff (with exceptions, of course). Style.com recently did an editorial called "Kate's Picks," in which she went through the new fall lines and chose her favorites. Also, this thread has an extensive gallery of Kate photos. Really, there's no set designer that she prefers. She just likes what she likes, which is how we should all operate. Of course, if I had to pick one staple item for Kate, it would be her Hermes Birkins. (And her opaque black tights, her fur coats, grungy 90's skinny jeans, leggings, pirate boots, white blazer... basically a lot of black and white with a little red thrown in there for color.)
Hope all that helped you two!
