The Olsen Twins Channel John Lennon (PHOTO)

The Olsen twins rocketed to fame shortly after they played the adorable Michelle Tanner on the sitcom "Full House." After their breakout role the sisters went on to start their own company, Dualstar, star in a series of TV shows and movies and create fashion lines Elizabeth and James and The Row. As Mary-Kate and Ashley have gotten older they have emerged as style icons in their own right and have led a legion of teenage girls to mimic their boho-chic look. Always the first to try new trends (unbrushed hair and Balenciaga bags started with them), these fashionistas will always be noted for their fearless looks and impeccable sense of style.

In this '90s photograph we see the fraternal twins channeling icon John Lennon. With their matching round sunnies and black patent loafers, we feel nostalgia for the '60s. Though they are dressed differently -- Ashley in a dress layered over a T-shirt while Mary-Kate wears classic black pants and a white blouse -- they both look fashion-forward in outfits we would happily wear today. Looks like these ladies have had fashion in their blood since birth.
