Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, twin empresses of fashion and the '90s/early '00s, are endearingly resistant to modern pop culture. But now they've finally given in to the allure of the selfie. As a promotion for their brand Elizabeth and James, the ladies posted their very first public selfie while controlling Sephora's Instagram for the day. With this photo, imagine ever so briefly a world in which the Olsens continued to act and became as addicted to Instagram as the Kardashians.

They may not selfie a lot (at least publicly) but the 29-year-olds know what they're doing. And after all these years, they're still rocking enviable hairstyles. Mary-Kate (or whoever is on the right) exudes a bit more of a casual-chic look and smize that suggests this sister is slightly more familiar with the art of the selfie than the other.

Now for a stroll down memory lane. Here are the sisters being chic AF at the CFDA Awards last year.

And here are the twins in 2001, the glory days of spaghetti strap tops and lip gloss.

What splendid highlights they had.
