Olsen twins: We’re all about fashion

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are "entirely devoted" to their fashion careers.

The twins run a successful range of fashion lines including Elizabeth and James and The Row, although they first stepped into the spotlight as child actresses.

Mary-Kate and Ashley insist they won't be returning to the big screen any time soon.

"We don't have time to think about it. We are entirely devoted to fashion," they said in an interview with Elle France.

The 25-year-old fashionistas work hard at creating the best fashion lines possible. However, they also take on board suggestions from those around them.

"We go on slowly but surely. We are listening to a lot of advice. We are very disciplined. Working is the best way to reach our goal," Ashley explained.

"You might be disappointed, but we have a pretty normal life as soon as we are home."

Mary-Kate and Ashley's younger sister Elizabeth is currently making waves in Hollywood. The 23-year-old has seen her career take off after appearing in Silent House and Martha Marcy May Marlene.

The twins are keen for their younger sibling to wear other labels on the red carpet - not just their own.

"We dressed her for the last Festival de Cannes. She sometimes wears our designs but we encourage her to have her own experience with fashion," they revealed.

"So hopefully, she likes other brands!"

    Some things in life are hard to explain, like why a dentist insists on asking you questions when you clearly can't respond. Or why we call pants "a pair" even though it's just one. Or how about this puzzler: Why a person would drive their Mustang along a Texas highway despite it missing a wheel? Life is full of little mysteries, I guess.

    All-new 2015 Subaru Outback reestablishes higher ground

    Much of Subaru’s modern day success in America can be attributed to one car: the Outback. Born in 1994 as a response to the growing popularity of SUVs, the Outback established a winning formula of combining a high-riding suspension, butch body cladding and big round fog lights to its comfortable, no-nonsense Legacy wagon. It is the kind of unique product that only a quirky company like Subaru could build, and was one that kept Subaru from slipping into ubiquity even as traditional SUVs and crossovers have taken over the world.
