Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen peddle 'Influence'



Tbdmarykateashleyolsen022808 Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are releasing a book, and it’s not a cookbook, obvs. The 21-year-olds are publishing a coffee table book called Influence, People reports. That would be, a book featuring people who have influenced the Olsen twins.

Like Twiggy and Calista Flockhart? No, only “the most interesting, challenging, creative people we know — the ones who helped pave the way for us and our generation,” they say, like shoe guru Christian Louboutin, actress Lauren Hutton, photographer Terry Richardson and writer Bob Colacello.

“Ashley and I interviewed the people who have inspired us, with the hope that they will inspire and teach others,” Mary-Kate said. Maybe the book, due in the fall, will inspire and teach others to forgo eating and get $40 million for looking like diseased wood nymphs.
