Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been named among the world's best dressed women, by US Vogue. The designer siblings grace the cover of this month's best dressed supplement, which pays tribute to their style as well as other famous sisters, including Duchess Catherine and Pippa Middleton, Beyonce and Solange Knowles and Dakota and Elle Fanning.
"It's been a year of sisters, most famously with Catherine and Pippa Middleton. Their style is short enough to be impossible for an older-generation royal to wear, long enough to be decent when sitting or bending down to talk to a child. But are there any more chic, stylish, cool, and original sisters than Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen? They are incredibly stylish," said Mark Holgate, Vogue Fashion News Director and Editor of the Best Dressed issue.
"I feel like Mary-Kate's constantly evolving. What she does is when she finds a proportion or a silhouette or a specific outfit, she'll wear it until she's over it - which could be a week or it could be a year," Ashley said of her sister's style.
Mary-Kate added about Ashley, "There's always sort of a sense of a bohemian vibe. She's quirky, modern, bohemian."
Apparently Kim Cattrall isn't the only one who doesn't play well with Sarah Jessica Parker:
Carrie Bradshaw Parker and Halston have reportedly ended their working relationship.
The Sex and the City actress was the president of the iconic label until recently and although no formal announcement has been made by either party, the split was alluded to in a recent interview the star completed with Vogue: "When Sex and the City, to her own surprise, made her a fashion star, she launched her own design label and perfumes, as well assigning on to run the Halston Heritage label, a relationship that recently came to an end," the article read.
Last November it was revealed Sarah Jessica was not pleased the CEO of Halston Bonnie Takhar had been forced to step down. "Sarah has been a strong supporter of Bonnie for a very long time, and has been the sole voice supporting her against the board and shareholders. She has been fighting this for a very long time. She believed in Bonnie. She was emotional and upset because this finally came to a head," a source said.
The year 2011 has thus far been a promising one for Crystal Renn, who landed her first Vogue cover for Vogue Mexico's April issue.
Photographed by David Roemer and styled by Sarah Gore-Reeves, Renn brings out the fun, excitement of fashion with her poses and lights up the magazine's pages while also welcoming spring with bold, bright lips, eyeshadow, nails, and clothes.
Admittedly, the coveted Vogue cover gig was long overdue for Renn, who has previously starred in several Vogue editorials, including a food-centric one shot by Terry Richardson under the former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld.
Turned away from a Vogue Italia cover for not being able to fit into the dress the magazine desired, Renn now has been vindicated with a cover that has received an overwhelming amount of praise, prompting many to believe she may appear on the American edition soon.

Reality star and occasional model Kim Kardashian has blasted W Magazine on her show for a nude shoot she did back in October for their November Art issue.
Despite having previously posed nude in Playboy and Harper's Bazaar, Kim was extremely upset over what she claims was misrepresented when pitched to her:
"Oh my God, I'm more naked that I was in Playboy. I'm so mad right now. [The magazine] promised I would be covered with artwork -- you can see the nipples! The whole concept was sold to me that nothing would be seen. I feel so taken advantage of … I've definitely learned my lesson. I'm never taking my clothes off again, even if it's for Vogue."
What never compelled her to confirm that minor stipulation with the magazine is beyond me. Considering the lengths she seems to go to grab headlines, I can't seem to buy her story. Moreover, I think that it's laughable that she'd think there's a possibility in
Anna Wintour's this reality that Vogue would ever ask her to be in their magazine.
W, of course, was quick to respond:

-- Natalie Portman is stunning in her Christian Dior ad for the fragrance Miss Dior. Knowing that she's an animal rights activist, I can't help but feel reminded of the "I'd Rather Be Naked" campaign...
-- Sasha Pivovarova returns to Miucci Prada's fashionable arms in her Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2011 ads, shot by Mert and Marcus.
-- Take that, Blake! Not to be outshined by her Gossip Girl co-star's Chanel gig, Leighton Meester strikes a pose for Missoni. When there's a will to do high fashion, there's a way.
-- Lindsey Wixson gets in front of Terry Richardson's lens for Opening Ceremony's Spring/Summer 2011 lookbook. Apparently, Terry can do cute and adorable without being sleazy.
-- Speaking of Richardson, Paris Hilton (remember her?) posted a picture of the two on her Twitter, propagating the news that she's going to be in a Vogue editorial -- Vogue Turkey, that is.
Karl Lagerfeld thinks that Emmanuelle Alt will blossom in her new role at French Vogue.
The Chanel designer says he is a fan of the 41-year-old - who was recently named as the publication's new editor-in-chief - and thinks she has what it takes to be Carine's Roitfeld's replacement.
"Her style is her big shoulders, long legs, tight jeans, sleeves up to the elbow, one hip out. I personally like her. She's a handsome French woman. She has a style, but is it enough to make a whole magazine? As editor-in-chief, she may blossom."
Emmanuelle Alt says it is an "honor" to be named as the new editor-in-chief of French Vogue.
The 41-year-old fashionista will replace Carine Roitfeld in the coveted position at the prestigious magazine and admits she can't wait to get to work:
"It is a great honor for me, and also a great pleasure, to arrive at the head of Vogue Paris which I know so well. By working with such a talented team, I am confident of developing the incredible potential of the magazine."
Emmanuelle, who will begin her new role on February 1, worked at the publication as fashion director during Carine's editorship. She began her career in 1990 at Elle, becoming fashion director at age 20.
"Vogue Paris is performing strongly and I wish to entrust the editor-in-chief position to someone who will ensure a certain continuity, while bringing a new energy and dimension. Emmanuelle has all the professional and personal qualities required to maintain Vogue Paris as a world reference among fashion magazines. Vogue Paris will remain the most important fashion, beauty and cultural magazine, working with the world's greatest photographers and stylists. I totally trust her to manage this prestigious brand and develop it in all its dimensions, including digital," said Xavier Romatet, president of Conde Nast France, which publishes French Vogue.
-- Victoria Beckham covers February's issue of Vogue UK looking rather bare-faced and less glamorous than usual. Marking her sixth solo Vogue cover, the singer-turned-fashion designer talks about her style's evolution and -- more importantly -- what it's like to wake up next to David Beckham.
-- Hilary Swank is one Oscar-winning actress who actually is down-to-earth: the woman loves a good bargain, and isn't ashamed of -- gasp -- clipping coupons. If only she had shopping secrets to scoring designer labels...
-- Anja Rubik stars in her third consecutive Fendi campaign, shot (of course) by Karl Lagerfeld.
-- Speaking of Anja, the model's agency recently announced her Christmas engagement to fellow model Sasha Knezevic. As if there aren't enough super hot couples to be jealous of.
-- Lady Gaga treated her monsters to a nice holiday surprise with details of her upcoming album. More importantly, she posted a preview of the album art, which features her rocking a unicorn-blazoned jean jacket that reads, "Born This Way." Oh, and she has completely ditched pants -- literally.
French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld has quit her job. The fashion writer has decided to end her 10-year association with the prestigious magazine, as she wants to concentrate on personal projects.
"It is impossible to overstate Carine's powerful contribution to Vogue and to the fields of fashion and magazine publishing. Under her direction, Vogue Paris received record levels of circulation and advertising and editorial success. Vogue Paris has established itself as one of the most iconic magazines in the world, with huge influence in the field of fashion and photography. Carine herself has become widely known as a beacon of style, fulfilling the role with charm and graciousness. She has become a giant in her profession. Carine will be deeply missed. I am extremely grateful to her for what she has achieved," said Jonathan Newhouse - CEO of Conde Nast International.
Carine will leave her position at the end of January and her replacement will be announced in coming weeks.
Selita Ebanks was dismissed from Vogue magazine with a wave of the hand from editor Anna Wintour. The Victoria's Secret model - who has recently been lauded for her starring role in Kanye West's Runaway film - told how she once had a disastrous meeting with bosses at the fashion bible.
"I wore Timberland boots. I had on corduroy high-water flooded beige pants with a button-down plaid shirt. I was a tomboy. I remember walking in ... Trudy, from Vogue at the time, she looks at me startled and I didn't understand why. I was like, 'What up? Who am I here to meet?' I walk into the office, I got maybe two steps into the room and I look and it's amazing Ms. Anna Wintour. She goes [makes a dismissive wave] and dismisses me. Needless to say my cover did not come out, to say the least, and I have never shot Vogue magazine," she explained to MTV News.
Rather than being bitter, Selita, 27, considers her visit to the offices a learning experience. "Now that I reflect back on it the lesson is to always do your homework. Always be aware, don't just take people's word for it and walk into a room. I should've asked, 'Who am I here to see? Who will be in the room?' But this is something you live and you learn."
