I’m not aware of any time during the last 31 years when I was confident of my ability to distinguish between Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, and technically they’re not even identical twins. (They have a younger sister, Elizabeth, whom I find easier on my eyes, but of course your mileage may vary.)
Similarities aside, Mary-Kate has gotten slightly more attention in these pages, mostly for this absurd tale from a decade ago:
Blogdom has been much amused by the fourteen-page spread in Harper’s Bazaar (October) in which Mary-Kate Olsen dresses up with Lauren Hutton and declaims, “I run around my house naked with heels all the time.”
I have no doubt that she does — why would anyone make up something like that? — but I suspect that the running is at a pretty slow pace, what with the heels and all.
What made me think of this, in case you’re curious, was this tweet from this past weekend:
#TheresNothingMoreSexierThan Wearing only a pair of heels.

Yeah, like I’d know anything about that.
Anyway, here are a couple of shots of Mary-Kate, or at least I think it’s Mary-Kate. She’s not running around, naked or otherwise.
Enough eye makeup there for any five normal women, or three Dusty Springfields.
Speaking of a decade ago, here’s MK getting the once-over from David Letterman:
Darling Dave apparently hadn’t yet grown into the professional perv we’d see later in life, though clearly he was working on it.
