After being in front of the camera since she was nine-months-old, Mary-Kate Olsen is no stranger to having all eyes on her. Recently known for hiding behind her big black sunglasses and making the boho style chic, Mary-Kate has settled into a life as a designer and fashion forecaster. And now on the eve of her 24th birthday, Mary-Kate talks to Marie Claire about focusing on fashion, working with her sister, Ashley Olsen, and learning how to ask for help.
On focusing on fashion over acting:
