LA is the only place (for now) where you can shop both of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s luxe labels, as Elizabeth and James officially opens at The Grove today. Located next door to MAC Cosmetics in front of the fountain, the boutique is the CFDA-approved twin fashion moguls’s first-ever flagship for their contemporary label.
Rather than following the footsteps of their high-end line The Row (which debuted on Melrose Place a few years back), we’re told the Olsens selected the tourist-friendly hub because “it’s an LA institution” where their customers already shop. The 1,200-square-foot space — designed in collaboration with architect David Montalba — is an ode to the twins’s hometown: in addition to stocking E&J’s full womenswear, accessories, and fragrance collections, the shop offers its reintroduced denim line, which was absent from the past several seasons.
The design duo also worked with local shops in curating the shelves and decorating the interiors: expect to find a selection of vintage kimonos, tees, and indigo-dyed textiles from Spanish Moss (Scout shopkeep Joey Grana’s other vintage venture) and Cali-cool seating (not for sale, sadly) from Galerie Half. Additional in-store exclusives include Elizabeth and James’s signature croc-stamped leather bags and pouches, a sleek pink suit set, and linen pants.
Elizabeth and James at The Grove is open Monday through Thursday from 10am to 9pm, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 10pm, and Sunday from 10am to 9pm.

You may have also seen a lot of reports stating that Mary-Kate is pregnant with her first child, we now have confirmation that is untrue.
Mary-Kate’s rep has stated ‘“[she is] not pregnant.”
Mary-Kate Olsen is NOT pregnant, despite a completely inaccurate tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told the former child star is not expecting a child.
According to Star, Olsen and her husband Olivier Sarkozy have a baby on the way. The proof? A so-called “source” tells the tabloid that at a recent Met Gala afterparty, “Not only did Mary-Kate steer clear of alcohol, she didn’t smoke a single cigarette.” Without any further evidence to backup its pregnancy claim, the magazine’s supposed insider adds, “We all started wondering if she was hiding a baby bump underneath that oversize coat.”
But Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Olsen, who exclusively assures us the actress-turned-fashion designer is simply “not pregnant.” The tabloid’s piece is pure speculation, and it’s completely wrong. However, we’re not particularly surprised by the outlet’s bogus story. Gossip Cop has often corrected Star for making false allegations about Olsen.
We previously debunked the tabloid’s rumor that Olsen was cheating on Sarkozy with her ex-flame Jared Leto. And prior to that, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for falsely claiming her relationship with the French businessman was “taking a toll” on her mental and physical health because he’s supposedly a “terrible influence” who encourages her to party. Much like those tall tales, the publication’s so-called pregnancy announcement is also 100 percent untrue.
And Here’s your long awaited batch upload! Including exclusives & all in HQ!
