Ashley Olsen ensured all eyes were on her as she made a rare appearance in the spotlight on Saturday night to attend the glamorous Hammer Gala in Los Angeles.

Ashley, 31, teamed her outfit with a velvet clutch, and wore her long, blonde hair down with a sweeping side parting. A bold outline of black liner and a defined brow enhanced her large green eyes, while a glowy base and sweep of blusher across the apples of her cheeks enhanced her complexion. A berry lip completed her look.

Earlier in the year, Mary-Kate spoke to The Edit and revealed that both she and Ashley strive to help women feel good when it comes to designing their clothes. "We just want to help women feel however they want to feel. Every once in a while, we want to change our perfume or our haircut; we want to wear heels or flats. We just like to switch it up. That's the beauty of clothes. And what a beauty that really is!" she said.
