  • This child star-turned-designer says she just may walk down the aisle in a gown of her own creation

    Mary-Kate Olsen has been engaged for nearly two months now. And while most brides-to-be would probably be well into the obsessing-over-the-dress phase, it seems to be the last thing on her mind.

    The 27-year-old designer – who’s engaged to 44-year-old French banker Olivier Sarkozy – admitted to WWD that she’s not very far along in the wedding planning process. ‘I’m, like, not even there yet,’ she said.

    But she did reveal one juicy nugget: She’s considering designing her own dress. ‘I think it may be a matter of getting five or six, or making two or three and being stressed out,’ she said. ‘That seems kind of far away. We’ll take one step at a time.’

    Bridal gowns aren’t a specialty for Mary-Kate, who oversees fashion brands The Row, Elizabeth and James and the more affordable lines Olsenboye and StyleMint with her twin sister Ashley Olsen. However, she and Ashley did recently design a wedding dress for a friend. Sounds like she enjoyed the process!

    We’re uber-excited to see whether Mary-Kate does decide to go with a self-made dress – and what type of design she goes for. Would it stay true to the minimalist aesthetic of the The Row?

    While the bride-to-be doesn’t really seem like the type to have traditional bridesmaids, we can bet her two celebrity sisters – Ashley and Elizabeth – will also be dressed to the nines for the A-list nuptials.

    Not really up to designing your own dress? You can get one from the High Street, instead!
