INFLUENCERS IN THE AUGHTS
Mary-Kate and Ashley were practically the OG influencers of their time. Just as today’s influencers circle the globe to exotic destinations and craft beautiful outfits for the ‘gram, the Olsen twins took us on aesthetically pleasing destination adventures throughout their filmography, sparking wanderlust within us before hashtags were even a thing. During their direct-to-video glory days, the twins whisked us away to Paris, Sydney, London, The Bahamas, and Rome…and that’s just naming a few.
What makes these five on-location movies stand out in a sea of teen travel films is brilliant costume design, a result of the creative collaboration between Mary-Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen, and their personal stylist, Judy Swartz. It’s no secret that the twins became some of the youngest producers in Hollywood, granting them creative freedom in their films. This artistic freedom allowed them to put their designing and styling expertise to the test. They obviously passed the test with flying colors as we all know that this is the profession they continue to flourish within to this day (AKA: The Row, of course!). When revisiting these films, it’s highly impressive that each destination film paints a cohesive style palette, complete with its own color scheme, seasonal flair, and aesthetic that perfectly matches every city they visit.
