Before the Hadid sisters, the Olsen twins dominated the fashion scene — and one could argue that they still do. The former child stars, who got their start on "Full House," found their true calling as fashion designers.

Since launching brands The Row and Elizabeth and James, the sisters have been honored to receive major fashion awards for their fearless sense of style. Never ones to put boundaries around fashion, they've inspired numerous trends, including choker necklaces, big sunglasses, and oversized layers.

Keep scrolling to see how their fashion sense has played out over the last 18 years.



In 2002, the Olsens were photographed in London as they presented a check to the BBC for Children in Need.

The twins kept their neutral blouses sweet and simple with slight ruffles and a sheer print. However, the real accessorizing played out with their true blue jeans and oversized brown leather belts, complete with gold medallions and turquoise stones.



In 2004, the Olsen twins put on party dresses for the Los Angeles premiere of their film "New York Minute."

The actress sisters wore very different dresses to their movie premiere, but were cohesive with a '20s fashion theme. Mary-Kate layered Chanel pearls over her lacy eyelet dress, and Ashley went for a pretty silver slip, which she styled with silver jewelry.

The dainty straps on Ashley's bronze slip dress were echoed by the thin band on her strappy sandals. Mary-Kate went for a busier look, wearing a brown polka-dot dress with candy-colored pointed-toe heels.



In 2005, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen made their debut at the Met Gala Celebrating Chanel in New York City.

For their Met Gala debut, the sisters styled their gently tousled curls with soft, flowing dresses. Mary-Kate paired a white embroidered dress with red beads and a stack of gold bracelets. Ashley opted for a gold midi dress with an iridescent pattern and a pale pink ribbon that cinched at the waist.

The Olsen twins channeled their inner New York City glam with two edgy dresses. Ashley toughened her rosy velvet dress with a cropped leather jacket, while Mary-Kate opted for a sheer black dress complete with butterfly sleeves and a hint of sparkle.

Mary-Kate and Ashley displayed their sophisticated taste wearing complementary black and white ensembles with plunging necklines, detailed waistlines, and wide-leg silhouettes.

The Olsen twins are notorious for their stylish sunglasses, and nothing is more memorable than their contributions to the oversized trend.



In a wild display of pattern and color, the Olsens attended "The Museum of Modern Art Film Benefit: A Tribute To Tim Burton" in 2009.

Ashley Olsen gave serious Carrie Bradshaw vibes in a turquoise dress that hit just above her ankles and a classic black peacoat with yellow pointed-toe Manolo Blahnik heels. Mary-Kate went even bolder in a large leopard print coat, a black brimmed hat, and a vampy oxblood red lip.


At the 2010 ELLE Style Awards, the Olsen twins brought fur and tulle to the red carpet.

Mary-Kate took a sheer black tulle gown and layered it beneath a cozy black fur coat, while her sister took a softer approach, wearing a nude and blue tulle dress. She too bundled up in a cropped coat — though hers was dark red.

Taking a more understated and conservative approach to the red carpet, the Olsen twins once again nailed the art of fashion. Ashley's gold button-down dress was classic, while Mary-Kate's striped gown with sheer sleeves looks like it pulled inspiration from menswear.

Ashley wore a neutral dress that streamlined straight to the ground beneath a gold, oversized outwear garment. Mary-Kate opted for something even simpler, a black long-sleeve dress similar in nature to the style of her sister's.

Neutral tones were at the core of the Olsens' 2017 Met Gala ensembles. Both twins wore nude lace dresses and let their black undergarments peek through. Ashley paired hers with an elaborate jacket, while Mary-Kate accessorized with a large necklace.
