But what delineates The Row designers from pairings including Kate and Pippa Middleton,Dakota and Elle Fanning, Beyoncé and Solange Knowles and Rooney and Kate Mara to handily win Vogue readers’ stamp of approval?

“I feel like Mary-Kate’s constantly evolving,” Ashley recently told Net-a-Porter of her sister’s style. “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.”
And while Mary-Kate dubs her sister “very classic and modern,” she contends that Ashley is not without her idiosyncrasies. “There’s always sort of a sense of a bohemian vibe,” she continues, “[She’s] quirky, modern, bohemian.”
