While the rest of us were enjoying muggy rain-filled weather conditions in the UK over the weekend it seems our favourite fashion twins, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, had ventured to sunnier climes, inviting their closest pals to join them for one seriously grand, Olympic-themed birthday bash.
The siblings, who turned 29, were joined by their nearest and dearest at a secret Hamptons location as they took time out with dunk tanks, obstacle courses and a colourful maze. As you do.
To make the event even more interesting the birthday girls reportedly picked names out of a hat before each guest was presented with either a Team Ashley or Team Mary-Kate T-shirts in red and blue.
After the teams competed in a crazy afternoon of festivities it was apparently Team Ashley who managed to scoop a gold medal as the entrepreneurs’ pals took to Twitter and Instagram to relive the days events, with Jared Seligman captioning a cute pic of him and Ashley; “Champions #teamashley #olsenolympics #twinning #sorrymk”.
This fun-filled day comes soon after Netflix’s disappointing revelation that the twins will not be returning to the channel’s latest remake of Full House (the show which launched their career). But we doubt the girls have much time for TV these days, as they have already bagged a coveted CFDA Award for Womenswear Designer of the Year 2015, showcasing their design talents for their own label, The Row.
To round off the evening the siblings even set off an assortment of small fireworks to help end the day with a bang.
Team Ashley, or Team MK? We’re not sure we could choose between them…
