Today marks the 29th birthday of beloved Olsen twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, so naturally, we're taking a trip down memory lane. The sisters' beauty evolution has been amazing to watch over the years, and their signature slept-in, almost crinkly texture (the handiwork of famed stylist Mark Townsend) has inspired many a hair moment. But before the boho beach waves and cool-girl half-up topknots, the twins were… well, pretty much dead ringers for Anna Wintour! At a film festival in 1997, at the tender age of 11, the sisters showed off matching bowl cuts with blunt bangs that look too identical to Wintour's famed cut to be a coincidence. Perhaps they were already taking inspiration from fashion's leading lady, with whom they would go on to develop a close friendship. So what do you think—were the Olsen twins already looking to Wintour for inspiration, or is this just an adorable look-alike photo?
