The Council of Fashion Designers of America in partnership with Swarovski is an annual award celebration that gathered the biggest designers, tastemakers and fashion icons in the Brooklyn Museum on Monday, June 4.

The fashion designer twins were nominated for Womenswear Designer of the Year and won the award for Accessories Designer of the Year at the event held in New York City, as reported by Pop Culture.

The 31-year-old designers walked on the red carpet at the CFDA Fashion Awards, and because it’s their ninth time attending the event together, Mary-Kate and Ashley showed up essentially matching in head-to-toe black outfits from The Row.

Ashley stepped onto the carpet wearing a black top and a black skirt, paired with black pumps, and Mary-Kate wore a belted coat with matching booties. They both carried black leather handbags.

The Olsen sisters were nominated last year for Womenswear Designer of the Year and won the award in 2012 and 2015, and they also won Accessories Designer of the Year in 2014.

The celebrity twins in 2006 founded The Row design house with a mission to support high-end fashion manufacturing in the United States, and in 2009 became the youngest designers inducted into the CFDA trade association.

This year Mary-Kate and Ashley have an estimated net worth of more than $400 million.
