"Ashley Olsen appeared in Los Angeles on Tuesday in forest green track pants, Yeezy sneakers, an oversized orange and yellow plaid shirt, and a big T-shirt with a photo of a woman smoking a pipe with the lead singer of the hardcore punk band Bad Brains under the text, “HIGH WASTED”!!! This is particularly strong look, like pure Kurt Cobain energy with the proportion play of Kanye West—which leads me to wonder: is Ashley borrowing from Kanye, or is Kanye borrowing from Ashley?
