Influence is about the Olsen twins' influences in fashion and style, the book includes interviews with: Karl Lagerfeld Diane Von Furstenberg John Galliano Lauren Hutton Christian Louboutin amongst many others.
Mary Kate Olsen, actress, designer and entrepreneur, currently co-designs Elizabeth and James with her sister and business partner, Ashley. The Hollywood Reporter named Mary Kate one of the "most powerful women in Hollywood", and the New York Times called her role in The Wackness the "breakout performance of the year". Ashley Olsen, designer, entrepreneur, actress and style icon, is one of the most influential young women in the fashion and entertainment industries. Ashley founded her luxury brand, The Row, in 2006, and co-design Elizabeth and James with Mary Kate. Marie Claire magazine called Ashley "a remarkably clear and focused executive doing brilliant work".

Forward through their attempt at NYU to now. Ashley has all but dropped acting and now heads the Row, which is really fantastic. She has captured how to make couture lines wearable to the every day. She was the first person to put couture seams on a tee/tank. That's pretty remarkable for a now 22-year-old. Mary Kate is still acting (well) and does a good job with Elizabeth and James, their more affordable (though still expensive) line.
Basically, these are young women who grew up in fame, so their perspective on it is more jaded, deservedly. Moreover, they grew up admiring these people just like us, except they can actually afford them and go out with them. poor us.
Regardless, my point is these are girls that actually have a clue what they're talking about and they're asking questions that aren't entirely typical because they know how to dance around cliche questions. They've obviously been there.
There's a pretty heavy-handedness to Mary Kate's love of Warholian culture just in terms of who she interviews and the questions involved. Ashley, you can tell has more of a designer's appreciation for these people. She loves them like a wearer, but also can be considered a colleague, and I think that comes across from time to time.
If you have an interest in fashion, photography, the culture that surrounds that and you care about them in a way that you aren't looking for the next YSL biography, I'd definitely recommend this to you. Its a fantastic read and I think it really helps you get over the fact that these are the Olsen twins and now they're using their entity (read: influence) to prove their talent.
It should come with a warning label: Beware - may cause instantaneous inspiration, artistic delusions, and swells of longing to be prolific. If you have any interest in fashion, photography, architecture, interior design, writing, or art, you should read this book. It should be on your bookshelf.
Trust me, after the first page your head will be swimming from reading under the Influence.
