I don’t know how true it is but reports this morning indicate Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen had a horrible book signing experience.

According to WENN, angry protesters bombarded the TV twin when they showed up to launch, “Influence” on Tuesday.

Fans lined up to meet the 22-year-old moguls, who were celebrating the release of their new coffee table book, Influence, on Tuesday.

But the pair were stunned to find animal rights activists shouting outside the event – part of a campaign launched by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) against the stars for their fashion choices.

A PETA spokesperson tells WENN: “People who still wear fur haven’t woken up to the fact that a big, dead animal on your back makes you look like a troll.

“Compassionate fashionistas know that real beauty comes from the heart – something that the Trollsen Twins seem to lack, considering all the animals they’ve killed for their clothes.”

The fashion fraternity is saying goodbye to another stalwart.

This time, it’s Mr. Blackwell, famed for his worst-dressed lists.

No doubt some celebs are breathing a sigh of relief.

Reuters reports:

 

Mr. Blackwell, the fashion maven whose annual “worst-dressed” list could be the bane of Hollywood celebrities, has died at age 86, according to media reports on Monday.

Richard Blackwell, born Richard Selzer, had been in failing health for some time and in August was reported to be in a coma after a fall at his Los Angeles home.

The Los Angeles Times quoted his publicist Harlan Boll as saying the former actor and fashion designer died on Sunday afternoon in hospital of complications from an intestinal infection.

Blackwell issued his “worst-dressed” list for 48 years and it became watched around the world as much for his caustic quips about the stars’ fashion as for who made the list.

Last year he put British “Spice Girls” singer Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham at the top of his list, saying: “…in one skinny-mini monstrosity after another, pouty ‘Posh’ Beckham can really wreck-em.”

In the No. 2 spot was British soul singer Amy Winehouse and just behind was U.S. actress Mary-Kate Olsen who, he said, “resembles a tattered toothpick trapped in a hurricane.”

For 35 years, Blackwell had his own clothing line. He was also acostume designer who worked with Hollywood stars such as Jayne Mansfield and Jane Russell.

Mary-Kate Olsen covers July’s edition of ELLE Magazine.

“I think there’s a real disconnect between the media’s perception of fashion and the fashion world’s idea of fashion,” argues Mary-Kate. “I don’t know why I wear some of the things I wear…it’s sort of like an art,” she tells the mag during the interview.

Olsen speaks of her role as a fashion designer and businesswoman, and talks about life as a twin.
