    Ashley Olsen

    Two words describe this twin’s style: refined minimalism. Olsen often opts for understated, tailored garments, in contrast to her more free-spirited sister. When in doubt, dress in head-to-toe black!

    Nicole Richie

    Ritchie has left her bohemian style roots in the past, in favor of a sleeker, edgier new look. High-octane glamour is also a big part of the actress’ world, so make sure to bring the drama with pieces that make a major impact.

    Get The Look:

    Givenchy Antigona Medium Flames Pouch ($364)

    ​When it comes to prints, Richie often gravitates toward Givenchy’s directional patterns. To keep our bank account from going into shock, we’ll opt for this relatively more affordable pouch.
