So we're sure they'll be delighted to hear the 58 year old stylist and CR Fashion Book editor recently sat down with Allure and opened up on fashion and her own personal style.
Here are some HIGHlights:
It's just like old times!
After seeing pictures of the multi-patchwork fur backpack, the animal rights group expressed their disapproval by releasing a statement:
"If it looks like a troll and acts like a troll, it's probably a Trollsen Twin—or someone wearing one of their new $16,000 totes, which are made from the fur and skins of innocent animals. What the Olsens lack in creativity, they try to make up for in shock value. Sadly, it's the foxes, calves, and alligators—who often have the fur ripped off them while they are still conscious and able to feel pain—who pay the dearest price."
It sounds like PETA just wanted an excuse to call them the Trollsens again. We haven't heard that name in forever!

Say it ain’t so Urban Decay!
The makeup company has made a huge deal out of the fact that their products are cruelty free, even putting the slogan “We don’t do animal testing. How could anyone?” on everything they sell.
Well, now Urban Decay wants to move into the very lucrative Chinese beauty market, but there’s a problem. The Chinese government must run their own tests on products sold in the country, and they utilize animal testing.

Designers certainly are getting creative with their materials these days!
After researching what fashion would look like in 50 years and chatting with a biologist about growing a garment, London-based designer Suzanne Lee has come up with a completely biodegradable fabric called vegetable leather.
The fabric is made out of green tea, sugar, bacteria and yeast and takes about two weeks to grow. Once the process is completed, the "fabric" can be moulded, dried, cut and sewn to be used like any other fabric.
The only downside is the fabric will eventually harden or even rot after 5 years, but according to Lee "you can compost it down with all your other vegetable peelings."
Awesome! A little gross, but still awesome.
