Olsen Twins, Johnny Depp Honored At Fashion's CFDA Awardsby: Posted:
It could easily be argued that no two people have emerged from childhood television stardom smelling quite so much like roses as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
More than a few tykes just embrace the acting bug and let it perpetually bite away. Not these two. The identical twins came away from "Full House" and various other Hollywood endeavors with few battle scars and a lucrative, thriving fashion career that Monday night won them some prestigious hardware at the 2012 Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards.
The Olsens' were awarded the year's Womenswear Designers of the Year Award for their The Row fashion line. Elsewhere, Johnny Depp would've been the night's next biggest honoree...had he been present. The 48-year-old "Dark Shadows" star was awarded the CFDA Fashion Icon honor for his personal style. A night removed from bringing the house down on the MTV Movie Awards stage alongside The Black Keys, he opted for a night in, so his "Cry-Baby" director pal John Waters accepted the award on his behalf.
Diane Von Furstenburg called him "Hot!" Padma Lakshmi summed him up with "Eyeliner. One bath less a week. A few grays, and killer charisma."
Jessica Chastain went to lengthier lauding. "He just sort of creates his own convention," she said. "He doesn't just like follow the rules. He makes the rules."
