If there was one word we would use to describe the Olsen twins, it would be cool. In fact, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are so cool that they don’t even use social media. Nope, far too cool for that.
While there may be photos of them gracing every fashion magazine, the sisters are infamously private and never post photos of themselves. In a world full of over-sharers and serial selfie-takers such as Kim Kardashian, the Olsen’s approach is rather refreshing.
However, this week they threw caution to the wind and shared their very first social media selfie, ever. The pair took over the Instagram page of American beauty brand Sephora to promote their own fashion brand. They shared a series of stylish snaps throughout the day, including a photo of their lunch, some behind the scenes fashion shots and this amazing black and white selfie, which was captioned “First public selfie ever”.

Mary-Kate & Ashley’s Sunglasses Style
In their Sephora take-over post, Mary-Kate and Ashley showed off their signature style in matching black sweaters and amazing black shades, which we’re sure will be setting trends for 2016. Staying true to their twin style, both sisters wore the same pair of glossy black sunglasses which featured edgy rectangular frames with silver side detail.
We’re definitely not surprised that the sisters chose to wear sunglasses in their selfie debut, after all, wearing huge over-sized sunglasses is one of their most iconic looks!
So, what sunglasses are they wearing? While we can’t be certain, we suspect that the Olsen’s stylish shades may be of their own designs. For those who don’t alreay know, Mary-Kate and Ashley launched their own fashion label, Elizabeth & James, in 2007.
Inspired by their love of fashion, the brand includes clothing as well as handbags and designer sunglasses. Since their lanuch, Elizabeth & James sunglasses have become a celebrity favourite and are often spotted on fashionista Gigi Hadid.

The sunglasses that the twins are wearing in their Instagram snap are proving rather tough to track down. But don’t worry, SelectSpecs have some amazing dupes that will give you that effortlessly cool Olsen look. Let’s take a look at some of our most stylish look-a-like shades.
Savannah P2429 sunglasses
Want to steal the Olsen sisters style but don’t have their designer budget? The you’ll love the Savannah P2429 sunglasses from SelectSpecs. These budget-friendly shades are almost identical to Mary-Kate and Ashley’s, featuring wayfarer-style frames in glossy black with metal detail on the sides. And the best part is, they’re only £14.95.
Ray Ban RB2132 sunglasses
They may not be wearing Ray Ban in this selfie, but Olsen twins are no strangers to this iconic brand; they often accessory their fashion-forward outfits with a pair of Ray Ban aviator shades. And another classic from the brand, the Ray Ban RB2132 sunglasses have the same classic, androgynous look as their featured shades. Get them in crystal black for that high gloss finish.
Celine CL4175 sunglasses
Last but not least, we think Mary-Kate and Ashley would certainly approve of these shades from high-end French fashion brand, Celine. The Celine CL 41756 shades feature bold, rectangular frames in classic black for that sleek and stylish Olsen look.
As you can see, the Olsen sisters are already setting style goals with their first ever selfie. We just hope we see more amazing snaps like this one soon! What do you think of their eyewear look? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us @SelectSpecs.
