Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen release “Influence”

olsens.jpgMary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen have released a coffee table book about fashion entitled “Influence.” In the book, the fraternal twins feature profiles of photographers, artists and designers including Lauren Hutton, Diane Von Furstenberg and John Galliano. “Mary-Kate and I have filled ‘Influence’ with the most interesting, challenging, creative people we know  the ones who helped pave the way for us and our generation,” says Ashley, while Mary-Kate commented: “Ashley and I interviewed the people who have inspired us, with the hope that they will inspire and teach others.” They’re pictured (Ashley wearing white, Mary-Kate in black) signing the book during a promotional event on Tuesday at Barnes and Noble, Union Square in NYC. Security was tight due to protestors outside the store holding signs that read “Trollsens: Fur Hags from Hell” and “Hairy Kate & Trashley Olsen: Fur Tramps” in response to their use of fur in their new line of designer clothing.

    Fraternal twins? Wow, for fraternal twins, they sure do look a lot alike!

    Yeah, they do, but once you know which one is which, it’s easy to tell, even when they were on Full House, once they were in the toddling phase, it was pretty easy to tell which one was on the screen.

    I agree Tributegirl. Maternal twins are supposed to be identical, not fraternal twins!
