13. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
I loved the TV sitcom ‘Full House’ back in the day. Granted, a big part of that love was for John Stamos – hubba hubba! I was surprised as were a lot of viewers were, to find out that the infant in the show was not played by one but two children. These young actors were the now infamous Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Although strikingly similar in appearance these twins are in fact fraternal twins and not identical twins. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen continued acting through their childhood and teen years. As the sisters matured they expressed their greater interest in fashion choices. Mary-Kate became a fashion icon for pioneering her signature ‘homeless look’ of oversized sunglasses, sweaters and flowing skirts. The Olsen twins have recently been named Womens Wear Designer of the Year by the Council of Fashion Designers of America for their brand ‘Row’ which was named after Saville Row in London. These talented ladies have joined the ranks of the wealthiest women in the entertainment industry.
