blasblog: the olsens’ book launch

-------

I’ll admit it, after last night’s party at Barneys for Influence, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s tome on fashion today, which I helped the girls with as editor, I was down for a celebration. But what to do, what to do? Something fancy with some of the subjects of the book, who trekked to Barneys for the party, like Robert Lee Morris, Evan Yurman, and the Proenza Schouler boys? Or something cheesy, like fried food and TiVo? Well, in the end, Mary-Kate and I picked something in between: some Gossip Girl bonding (that’s a pretty intense cheese factor), a few watermelon cocktails at Bungalow 8, and then an old-fashioned dance fest at Lit on Second Avenue. (Ashley was forced into early retirement, since she was waking at 5 a.m. the next day for a Good Morning America appearance.) From every perspective, the book was a long journey, with highs (visiting Karl Lagerfeld’s Paris studio the day before a collection, when he was still putting looks together; going to Richard Prince’s upstate studio) and lows (deadlines are a bitch), but the Olsens say they’ve enjoyed the experience. “I’ve learned so much about some of my personal icons,” Mary-Kate said, sitting with pals like DJ Cassie Coane and Amy Sacco. “And I’ve been so inspired. But tonight is to celebrate what we’ve done!”

    I am happy for them, I am glad to see that they are proving people wrong about how they don’t know about hard work, but the funny thing is that they have been working since they we’re babies. They have come so far and I know it’s not going to stop here; I can wait to read their book!
