MARY-KATE AND ASHLEY OLSEN ARE HARDCORE NEW YORKERS NOW
A friend of ours who doesn’t mind paying a hundred dollars for lunch, took a cigarette break outside the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel. When he got outside he realized he forgot his pack and noticed two elegant girls dressed in black puffing next to him. They were oblivious to the California sunshine – dressed in New York layers of very expensive dark clothing and long skirts and dark glasses. He asked one ”Could I bum a cigarette?” “No problem.” She replied. At that moment he realized they were Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, and a family from Texas spotted them and started begging for photos. The Olsens politely declined, but the noisy Texans persisted until the twins put out their cigarettes and went inside. Perhaps they’re in town planning to dress some of their Hollywood friends in clothing from their expensive line “The Row,” for Oscar night. Fashion, rather than acting, seems to be what they’re into these days.
