Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen Ruled The '90s & Here Are 7 Times We Wanted To Be Just Like Them
Children of the '90s have a special bond. Not only are we unified by the struggle of dying from dysentery on the Oregon Trail , but we grew up in a (mostly) pre-internet era. It was a magical time, made more-so by two tiny tycoons named Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Although the twins famously got their start sharing the role of Michelle Tanner on Full House, their brand soon evolved into direct-to-video movies, music, toys, fashion and so much more. It's only natural that eventually every '90s girl wanted to be like the Olsen twins.
Seriously, was anyone in the '90s cooler than Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen? From their complimentary personalities (Mary-Kate was often portrayed as the sportier twin, while Ashley was a girly-girl) to their flawless style, the sisters radiated confidence, poise, and general awesomeness. And though we were probably too young to know it at the time, the Olsens were instilling in us the belief that women can be powerful and successful moguls.
Even today, Mary-Kate and Ashley continue to embody strong, knowledgable businesswomen. While they've stepped out of the acting spotlight and are focused on their multiple fashion ventures, they epitomize cool. But before they conquering the world of high fashion, here are seven times every girl in the '90s wanted to be just like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
1. When Their Pool Parties Were The Best
The lyrics to this one speak for themselves: "A pool party is a cool party / It's a gas, it's a blast / It's a splash, splash, splash."
2. When It Takes Two Was Your Favorite Movie
It was an updated version of The Prince and the Pauper and it was everything we dreamed it could be.
3. Every Time A New Video Came Out
More songs, more outfits, more reasons to want to be like Mary-Kate and Ashley.
4. When They Had Their Own Catchphrase
When I was that age, I was learning the alphabet.
5. The Entirety Of Billboard Dad
Mary-Kate and Ashley took on Venice and hung out with future Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario. Why wouldn't you want that?
6. When They Had Their Own Detective Agency
They could solve any crime by dinner time.
7. When They Went To Paris
They hung out with French boys and talked sense into the French foreign minister. All in a day's work, right?
There's no one who quite embodies the glory of the '90s quite like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, which is why I encourage you to re-watch their entire catalog pronto.
