Glossy: Ashley Olsen Covers Marie Claire

MAGAZINE: Marie Claire
NEWSTANDS: September 2009
MODEL: Ashley Olsen
STYLIST: Leslie Fremar
NOTES: The personal style icon and force behind two thriving fashion lines, gracing the cover of Marie Claire‘s September issue, in the accompanying cover story gives a peek into her closet and her life, to the readers of Marie Claire. When Ashley Olsen crafts an image for herself, she nails it, every time. Working closely with the MC fashion team and stylist Leslie Fremar on our cover shoot, Ashley brought to life her vision of a light and airy yet intimate portrait—a sweet escape from dark economic times. Antiqued silk and lace lingerie were a nod to the 1930s, while nubby sweaters kept the looks grounded in modernity. Vintage-inspired jewelry and a simple, understated color palette were in keeping with the rule of the day: Less is more.
