Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Come Out of Hiding for Rare Public Appearance in NYC

Their black and white swan dresses caught the eyes of fashion writers.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have disappeared from the public eye of late, but the child stars turned paragons of fashion made a rare apperance in New York City just last week. 

Vogue reports that the two were spotted in striking, minimalist outfits at The Youth America Grand Prix’s Stars of Today Meet the Stars of Tomorrow Gala held at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater on Thursday, April 13. The Olsens were serving as co-chairs of the event alongside Samantha Boardman-Rosen, Colby Mugrabi, Candice Jordan Miller, and Lesley Thompson Vecsle according to New York Rag. This, at least somewhat, explains their appearance. 

The night began with a showcase of the finalists of YAGP's ballet tallents, which featured over 200 dancers age 9-19 from over 30 different countries. The second act highlighted performances from New York City Ballet’s Tiler Peck, the American Ballet Theatre’s James Whiteside, and the English National Ballet’s Tamara Rojo and Cesar Corrales. Other stars in attendance were Chelsea Clinton, Nicky Hilton Rothschild, and Rachel Feinstein. But it was the Olsens' striking "black/white swan" outfits that caught the eyes of fashion writers like Lilah Ramzi

Entertainment Tonight described the duo's attire as "chic." Amy Astley, honorary chair of the evening, showed some love for the sisters by wearing signature black suede flats from Ashley Olsen's award winning line The Row. “The better to dance in!” she exclaimed. 

This also marks Ashley's first public appearance since splitting with her boyfriend Richard Sachs in March after five months of dating. It's unclear if this appearance is the first of many in the future for the twins, or if the pair will go back into hiding, only to be seen again in ultra-stylish single-color dresses every few months from now until the end of time.
