I'm always excited to see Mary-Kate or her sister on the cover of a magazine, but that's definitely not her best cover. Looking forward to seeing the whole shoot.

They've an affordable tween line with JCPenney called Olsenboye and also design a line of teeshirts for Stylemint.com.
The Olsens also members of the Coucil of Fashion Designers of America.

This is one ugly cover ... The Olsens are beautiful, but the angle is wrong, the face is too close (and someone already said) and too much photoshop ... But I do think it's difficult to make them not beautiful.

Besides the absolutely horrible white lighting on her forehead, I think it's actually a good cover. The angling of the face is a little weird, maybe if she had tilted it down a little...

I was actually saying this in jest because I'm not sure if this really warrants a cover. :p If anything, I'd say Ashley has more power in The Row and Elizabeth & James is a licensed brand, so their input is debateable.

And like others have pointed out, she is hardly taking the fashion world by storm now.

I love Mk really excited to see her on UK ELLE even if the cover is disappointing, i'm sure the rest of the shoot will be brilliant.

^^Oh my bad! Well, why wouldn't it?

Regarding her "taking the fashion world by storm" (which I, too, find quite... amusing), let's not act as in we didn't know about magazine rules and how it's important to catch the customer's attention to make him or her buy the magazine.

The fonts and coverline layout this month seem to coming closer to the US Elle template.

The cover wouldn't have been that bad, if they had got the lighting right.
Saying that I have zero interest in MK Olsen or her sister.

She collaborates with Ashley on designing for their label, The Row.

I would of much preferred to see Ashley on the cover, for some reason I'm always more drawn to Ashley.
