At the opening of Matthew Williamson for H&M.

Okay. So I told you that Ashley was my favorite of the twins, and that MK’s style was a bit out-there for my taste.

But this outfit had me, jaw-dropping, in awe.

Firstly. That kaftan-cardigan-jacket item, in Han purple (and yes, it is exactly that shade).

Absolutely  s t u n n i n g . It is the very thing that transforms the LBD into the outfit.

I die at the color, the material, the fit.

Those sleeves! I  d i e e e e .

The asymmetrical LBD. Simplicity meets Grecian.

And when paired with a wide, corset belt,

Studded for a Balmain-inspired edge,

The entire look is perfection.

[Sans the bag. I would have opted for a clutch.]

The royal, rock ‘n roll sophisticate.

    totally perfect!!

  2. 20 May 2009 6:33 pm

    Ooh! I love the cardi too! (and also agree about the bag ;))

    I looooove this outfit! So perfect. Totally agree about the bag though, it just doesn’t really fit. Love her hair though. x

    I love that jacket in han purple! OMG I love that!
    I hate the purse though.
    I like the dress with the big belt and the shoes. She looks nice.

    that deep purple is so regal and adds a nice touch to the all-black ensemble.

    i agree;D i found the outfit gr8 when i first saw it few days back;))) love the dress, cardi and belt;D shoes are fine too, but i’m not the fan of this bag, box clutch would work much better, but let’s be onest – MK does look gr8 here;)))

  7. 20 May 2009 9:04 pm

    Oh, the bag is my fave part of the outfit.

  8. 20 May 2009 9:19 pm

    I have always liked MK a little tiny bit more and she looked so fab! One of my faves, she sparkles in this color!


  9. 20 May 2009 9:19 pm

    LOVING the belt!

  10. 20 May 2009 9:40 pm

    Pefect, i agree, but maybe the purse wasn’t so needed….

  11. 20 May 2009 10:38 pm

    Although sometimes I don’t like what Mk wears, I have to say she has immpecable taste most of the time and can put an outfit together very very well. xx

    I totally agree with you, LC! This is MK’s best look yet!

    And again, I agree with you. The bag needs to go!

  13. 20 May 2009 10:59 pm

    MK has truly been stepping it up in the fashion epartment lately – case in point her gown at the Met Gala. J’adore!

  14. 20 May 2009 11:06 pm

    That looks incredible. Great photo of her.

  15. 21 May 2009 12:36 am

    wow, i have never seen her dressed like this before!

  16. 21 May 2009 1:05 am

    i love her belt!

  17. 21 May 2009 2:11 am

    The bag doesn’t look that nice with the rest of her outfit, but I agree she looks stunning! The cardigan and sholderoffdress look great together. But what I find strange, the belt looks so good on her, but in the store I thought that the belt looked a bit, fake/plastic/not-so-great.. Never mind. :), she looks stunning!

  18. 21 May 2009 3:20 am

    Hi there-Its a fabulous outfit, very inspirational!

  19. 21 May 2009 3:25 am

    I loooove Mary-Kate!!!xoxo

    This is really gorgeous! Great pick!
    Have a nice day Sweets! x

  21. 21 May 2009 5:21 am

    that dress and belt mix is really amazing!

  22. 21 May 2009 6:35 am

    And her hair and make-up are completely flawless as well. She totally nailed it!

  23. 21 May 2009 6:45 am

    I know this is my problem & I should not be ascribing motives & feelings to either of the twins pictures, but I can’t get to the clothes because they, facially, always look like wounded, people-pleasing, little frail, frightened birds….

    The bag is disgusting but everything else is fine, I guess !

  25. 21 May 2009 8:00 am

    oh i just love anything those twins do.

    cardi and belt are my fav.

  26. 21 May 2009 8:27 am

    yes she looks great, but still I prefer Ashley 😀

  27. 21 May 2009 9:05 am

    I am from the ashley team too! But sometimes MK does it right too!

    Kisses and hugs friend!

  28. 21 May 2009 9:07 am

    she is so amazing!!

  29. 21 May 2009 9:44 am

    I agree, the bag kind of threw it off a bit
    but I love the cardigan with the LBD, very nice choice of color


  30. 21 May 2009 9:48 am

    MW belt is cool, bag is too…


  31. 21 May 2009 10:09 am

    totally agree, I’d choose a clutch too

  32. 21 May 2009 10:47 am

    Beautiful splash of color!

  33. 21 May 2009 11:43 am

    love this girl


  34. 21 May 2009 11:47 am

    i loved MK’s look at the met ball. ❤

  35. 21 May 2009 12:20 pm

    She looks fab! Love the bag!


  36. 21 May 2009 2:04 pm

    She looks great here! I actually like the bag–it’s complementary but not too matchy-matchy and it gives the outfit–which seems very polished and coordinated–a touch of quirkiness.

  37. 21 May 2009 2:46 pm

    Wow, i totally agree with you. Most of the time MK resembles the grandma’s of my community, but i must say, she looks stunning here!


  38. 21 May 2009 3:04 pm

    She’s more than awesome! *Speechless* LOVE that purple coat/cardigan/thing.

  39. 21 May 2009 3:21 pm

    That purple color sweater is amazing on her!! The shoes, the belt, everything match so perfectly! xxoxoxo

  40. 21 May 2009 3:40 pm

    The blue cardigan is perfect!=)

    omg she looks sooo good!

  42. 21 May 2009 6:32 pm

    U are right, she looks great, love the kaftan-look-a-like. And it would be better with a clutch 🙂

  43. 21 May 2009 6:43 pm

    you’re right, the cardigan is jaw-dropping. how perfect for summer would it be in peach ahhh. i absolutely love your blog. i’ve only just stumbled across it and don’t know how i missed it before. do you do link swaps? i’m adding you to my blogroll whatever the case. xoxo

  44. 21 May 2009 11:22 pm

    She always is beautiful! Plus I love her sense of style!

  45. 22 May 2009 1:28 am

    love the color and she always have fab shoes!

  46. 22 May 2009 2:01 am

    Really? I actually am digging the bag for it’s funky contrast of color against the purple cardy. This outfit is utter hotness!!

  47. 22 May 2009 4:32 pm

    Love this outfit!

  48. 23 May 2009 12:29 am

    I think I need a studded belt.


  49. 23 May 2009 10:48 am

    the dress may be nice, but i just dont like this woman, or consider her attractive in any way

  50. 23 May 2009 10:53 am

    I saw this picture recently too!

    I definitely like the look.

    I must say, I do rather like the bag.
