Mary-Kate Olsen and sister Ashley Olsen stick to a somewhat conservative aesthetic in life, but footwear is where they have fun. From sneakers to flip-flops to statement heels, Mary-Kate's shoes (many of which are from The Row) are always highly covetable. But it's the shoes she wore last night to the WSJ. Innovator Awards that are perhaps the most covetable pair yet. 

For the occasion, Olsen chose the ankle-boot trend that her fellow celebrities and influencers can't get enough of this season: square-toe boots. It's a sophisticated trend that we're confident is here to stay for quite some time. Not only that, her shoes were snakeskin (another major trend) boots from Phoebe Philo–era Céline, which makes them infinitely more covetable. Coincidentally, Olsen wasn't the only celebrity to don the boots last night. Emily Ratajkowski also wore them to a Lakers game with jeans and a crop top.
