Ashley Olsen Goes Vintage(?) Again


Most people in fashion know that Ashley Olsen loves her vintage clothing, but with her increasing interest in fashion, and recent declaration to leave acting behind in favor of joining the fashion world permanently , some of her “fabulous vintage dresses” worn to recent events have been from her own label, The Row. We don’t know how the rumors get spread about Ms. Olsen wearing vintage, but on more than one occasion, several days later the truth comes out that the dress was really a vintage-inspired dress by The Row. While her embellished orange dress worn to the 2009 CFDA fashion awards looks straight out of a WWII gala, sources are now saying that it is her own design. And while most publications are still adamant that this is a period dress, the designer has still not been released, and Ms. Olsen seems in no hurry to clarify either way: Ah, the power of vintage.
