These days, an Olsen twin red carpet sighting is rare in and of its own, but it’s even more rare when it’s on the arm of her husband. Mary-Kate Olsen, who only recently opened up about married life, attended a gala in New York with her husband of two years, Olivier Sarkozy, and in true MK style, she did it her way: in sneakers.

Hand-in-hand with her hubs, who looked plenty dapper in his suit, tie, and shiny loafers, Olsen ditched the heels. Instead, the designer slipped into Alexander McQueen Velcro Sneakers ($529). Honestly, we’d expect nothing less — girl always plays by her own fashion rules, even when pulling bridesmaid duty!

The private couple made their appearance at New York Academy of Art’s Take Home a Nude art party and silent auction at Sotheby’s and featured more than 200 works of art, naked models, and stilt walkers. The last time the public got a glimpse of the two together on the carpet was back in April, for the Youth America Grand Prix (which sister Ashley Olsen also attended).
