Mary-Kate Olsen’s velvet headband: a fashion trend in the making?

Mary_kate_olsen_velvet_head

OK, Mary-Kate, you know we love you, but lately we’ve been feeling like you sometimes take advantage of that love to wear things that we wouldn’t let anyone else get away with. Like your chunky velvet headband, for instance. Don’t think we don’t appreciate the, um, creativity of this ‘luxe John McEnroe’ look, but at the same time, don’t think we’re going to just keep on letting you off the hook with everything you try to sneak under the Fashion Police radar.

Of course, we could be wrong. We could ALL be wearing chunky velvet headbands like this soon, for all we know. But we don’t think so.

    It sort of looks like a giant caterpillar is crawling across her forehead… in a good way… but, um, I don’t think there is a good way to wear a giant caterpillar.

    She looks like that guy from Star Trek with the visor over his eyes. Just totally not cute.

    See, now first of all I thought someone had misplaced the censored bar so we wouldn’t be able to work out who was wearing that dress…

    I agree it looks fake, like someone Photoshopped it on her as a joke. Too bad it’s self-inflicted.

    I love you Fashion Police but I don’t understand your prolonged defence of the Olsen twins- they can’t dress to save their lives!
    The dress she is wearing with that is god awful too.
    Although I did actually like that playsuit last time.
    I stick to my guns though- they are fashion criminals ofthe highest order.

    Fashion Police, she should use this headband to censor out nip slips instead of her forehead.

    actually the head band is a bit much (i wouldn’t wear it) but i have seen versions of the headband worn like her but with a bit more taste like selma gomez in seventeen dec/jan issue.they way selma wore was real cute – she had this whole hippie vibe going and it looked really nice. so mayb ppl might eventually start rockin this look
