Olsen twins get prestigious fashion honor

One of the most prestigious gigs in the fashion industry is hosting the CFDA Fashion Awards (CFDA = Council of Fashion Designers of America). This year's awards will be held on June 4th at the Rockefeller Centre in New York, and will be hosted by none other than Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.

This seems odd to me. Sure, they're a fashionable pair, and they're celebrities, and they'll help with ratings, but this is a serious honor. The sisters' clothing line, The Row, never seems to go anywhere, and -- other than wearing designer outfits -- the only actual interaction either has had with the industry came in that abominably-written piece Mary Kate did for the NYT.

On the other hand, they'll certainly draw some attention to the event. The buzz has already started amongst fashion bloggers, mainly asking: what will they be wearing?
