Behind the Scenes at Mary-Kate Olsen's Cover Shoot

Often seen yet rarely heard, Mary-Kate Olsen uses fashion as a great communicator — and the world hangs on her every thread. Noting Olsen's current penchant for long sleeves and ethereal floor-length dresses, our fashion team assembled a mash-up of designer wares. Mainstays like Valentino and Catherine Malandrino hung side by side with quirky newcomers Louise Goldin and Christopher Kane. On Olsen's petite person, all are created equal.

On the second day of shooting, cops pulled over two cars filled with crew ... and Mary-Kate was in one of them! Apparently, in the Hamptons, anything more than 30 mph is considered speeding.

The crew rented out all of The Inn in Quogue, NY, where Mary-Kate stayed in a two-bedroom cottage. After wrapping, they all dined together at Dockers, where the star ordered mussels and a chopped salad.
