Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have always held a special place in our hearts. First, for their role as Michelle Tanner on Full House, and now, as full-fledged fashion designers for lines The Row and Elizabeth & James. After their CFDA Awards win last week, and it being their 28th birthday today, we can't help but wax poetic on the twins' style transformation over the years.

Though it's hard to imagine a time when the Olsens weren't in the tabloids for their bold sense of fashion, the dynamic duo, as they are so often referred to, once starred in some of our most beloved children's movies. It Takes Two, anyone? Passport to Paris? Back in the day, the Olsen twins were synonymous with seriously entertaining home video for girls of all ages.

From child stars to fashion icons, the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have come a long way. Click through the gallery to see their full style transformation!
