Mary Kate Olsen Interview Magazine 2009
Mary Kate Olsen is ice queen in Interview Magazine. Her editorial is quite cold and icy and I was close to not recognize her.
Below you’ll find photos from the editorial, some quotes from the interview and a behind the scenes video.
Do you remember the point in your life when you first got interested in fashion? Were you 16 and suddenly tearing through Vogues?
I didn’t look at magazines until a couple of years ago, to be honest. I never really knew anything about fashion. When I was young, clothes were really just about what fit, because Ashley and I were so tiny. So I understood fit before I understood style.
Did you buy your own clothes as a kid?
I never went shopping. That wasn’t my thing. I grew up horseback riding. That was my passion. I didn’t start shopping until about 16 or 17, whenI could drive myself to stores and explore on my own.
It’s kind of impossible not to ask you how you feel about the world prying into your personal life. How do you deal with it? Do you just say, “Okay, I’m not going to take any of this personally. F**k them.”
I definitely don’t take any of it personally. You learn how to have a sense of humor pretty quickly. I honestly don’t keep up on it unless it’s something that would hurt someone else. I can take care of myself, that’s not the problem. But it’s just not fair to bring anyone else into the picture.
