The two have become a part of pop culture conquering the fashion world with their designs. Initially starting their careers as actresses, they portrayed the same character Michelle Tanner on the ABC sitcom “Full House”. Sharing similar looks, people have difficulty telling the fraternal twins apart.
After their television notoriety, both Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen started appearing together in different television and film projects. This continued into their teenage years and their company Dualstar grew along with them earning an annual revenue of $1 billion dollars. This made the two very wealthy at an early age. Each Olsen Twin, has around $200 million dollars of worth from this alone. Now, they are estimated to be worth around $300 million each.
Back in 2012, they won their very first Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Womenswear Designer of the Year Award. They then went on to win again in 2015. The Wall Street Journal awarded them with Innovator of the Year: Fashion Award in 2012. Back in 2007, Forbes named the Olsen Twins as the eleventh-richest women in entertainment.
The twins were born on June 13, 1986 in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles. They are now 33 years old. Their younger sister Elizabeth has become a popular actress in recent years. The twins also have an older brother named Trent, a half-sister, Courtney Taylor and a half-brother, named Jake.
On their 33rd birthday, the twins celebrated together by wearing matching Tiaras. Two weeks before their birthday, the two had another reason to celebrate. They took home the award for Accessory Designer of the Year for The Row, their collection of ready-to-wear, handbags, eyewear and footwear.
Previously, they were honored with the same award before back in 2014 and 2018. Both sisters also head-up the luxury label Elizabeth and James. They are now the youngest designers, to ever be inducted into the association in 2009.
Both of them have accomplished quite a lot in their lives so far. Perhaps family is on the way for them beyond fashion. Rumors swirl about both of them and their relationships.
Mary-Kate Olsen is married to Olivier Sarkozy, he is a French banker and the half-brother of Nicolas Sarkozy, the former President of France. Ashley Olsen, remains single for now but has been in a number of relationships previously. Who knows what else they will accomplish but their future seems brightly bound.
