While some stars, like Claire Danes (in her incredible light-up Zac Posen number) and Cindy Crawford (in her sexy, silver Balmain gown), directly addressed this year’s theme, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, The Row designers, both 29, decided to go the comfier route.

Ashley stunned in a nude floor-dusting dress, which she paired with a shiny gold jacket and a small black clutch. She wore her hair in a messy updo, leaving a few face-framing tendrils tucked behind her ears.

Mary-Kate, who married Olivier Sarkosy in November 2015, contrasted her twin sister in a head-to-toe black sheath dress with sheer sleeves, accessorizing with a black bag. She also opted for artfully messy tresses, which she wore down around her shoulders.

The coordinating ensembles are a perfect match for their typical red carpet uniform of loose-fitting garb. However, in 2015, the Full House alums opted for head-turning dresses at the Costume Institute’s soiree. For the China: Through the Looking Glass red carpet, Mary-Kate donned a damask coat with fur trim while Ashley wore a vintage Victorian-inspired gown.
