cfda awards 2015


At 29 years of age, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have lived almost their entire lives in the public eye.

Making their onscreen debut at just 9 months old in Full House, this hard-working duo have managed to turn their acting career and their other accomplishments into their own brand dynasty.

To celebrate their birthday, we are going to take a look back at some of their biggest achievements over the years.

1. At the age of six, the girls founded Dualstar Entertainment, which made them millionaires by the age of ten.

2. When they turned 18-years-old, the teenage media moguls took over the company. The CEO of Dualstar described the girls saying, “They’re smart. They’re articulate. They’re rational.” The girls remained owners of the company until its collapse in 2007.

3. Following their film careers, the Olsen twins took a very impressive dive into the fashion industry. Aside from being described as fashion icons, the pair launched their own clothing line called Row in 2006.

4. Only last week, Mary-Kate and Ashley took home the Designer of the Year award for Row’s women’s wear at the CFDA Fashion Awards.

5. The sisters are said to have a combined worth of over €250million. 

Wow… that is a LOT to accomplish before the age of 30. We hope they are having a huge celebration tonight because after reading that it sounds like they could do with the night off! 


Attending a glitzy fashion event last night, she arguably looked like any other tall, beautiful, wealthy teenager who has the privilege of being on the guest-list.

But 16-year-old Maya Thurman-Hawke is certainly not just another pretty face. For one, she is the daughter of Hollywood royalty Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke.

Secondly, she gets to wear spectacular dresses that aren't even released yet.

Clad in a stunning Zac Posen tulle gown from the designer’s 2016 resort collection, she was attending the CFDA Awards in New York’s Lincoln Centre – an annual event which marks excellence in American fashion – accompanied by the designer himself.

Zac had earlier in the evening taken to Instagram to share a video clip of 26-year-old Canadian model Coco Rocha recently shooting in the same item.

And just as Coco can be seen in the video moving from side-to-side to allow the full-effect of the dress to be appreciated, Maya gladly obliged last night, twirling for the waiting cameras.

The capped-sleeved number features a black fitted bodice and full petticoat which is covered with a transparent layer of lightly-beaded material adorned with a colourful floral motif.

Her parents, actors Uma and Ethan, married in 1998 two years after they met on the set of Gattaca.

As well as Maya, they have a 13-year-old son, Levon. The couple separated in 2003 amid allegations of Ethan’s infidelity and their divorce was finalised in August 2005.

He went on to marry Maya and Levon’s nanny, Ryan Shawhughes, and now has two more children with her: Clementine, who was born in 2008, and Indiana, who arrived in 2011.

Understandably, Ethan has had to defend the union, and said during a sit-down interview in 2013: “I know people imagine some kind of Sound Of Music type love affair, but the truth is by the time Ryan and I were falling in love, it had been a long while since I had employed her.”

Meanwhile, Maya is fast becoming something of a fashionista: she's walked the red-carpet before alongside her famous parents, and last summer she attended a Miu Miu resort show with her mother in Paris. 



Yesterday was no doubt a busy day for Kim Kardashian, who confirmed her second pregnancy early on Monday morning.

The reality star and her husband Kanye West have been openly trying to conceive again naturally, and headed out together last night to celebrate their announcement in style. What started out as a typically glamourous night could have ended in tragedy for Kim however, as her dress apparently caught fire midway through the evening.

Forgoing maternity style, Kim walked the red carpet at last night's CFDA Fashion Awards in a sheer high necked creation by New York-based label, Proenza Schouler.

Unluckily for the 34-year-old, the feathers that decorated the shoulders of her dress were not fireproof, and apparently went up in flames after Kim got too close to a candle.

The expectant mum took to Instagram just now to thank rapper Pharrell and his wife Helen Lasichanh who spotted that Kim's gown had caught fire and "jumped" on her to put the flames out.

"Shout out to Pharrell & Helen who saved my life last night!," Kim wrote, sharing a picture of herself and Kanye alongside the quick-thinking couple.

"LOL After the awards at dinner the feathers of my dress caught on fire from a candle & they jumped on me to get it out!" Kim finished, adding the hashatag #We'reOnFire with the help of a flame emoji.

So now you know – if you're looking for a shout-out from Kim K via Instagram, all you have to do is save her life…
