The 28-year-old twins sat down with Miss Vogue U.K. to discuss the new evening wear collection for their brand Elizabeth and James.

When asked how to describe the ultimate woman for the brand, Mary-Kate answered: “Effortless, confident and eclectic.”

So which women in the industry are their top style pin-ups right now?  “Gigi Hadid,” Mary-Kate answers. “Whether she’s on the carpet or the street, she always looks effortless and cool.”

Ashley adds, “Amber Heard. She balances bohemian look with a touch of edge.”

Hmm… Seems like Ashley is describing their own perfect style! And speaking of the twins’ look, they also dished on the five things in their wardrobe they absolutely couldn’t live without:

Ashley says, “Comfort is important. Silk blouses, denim, loafers, scarves and a bag that can fit all my things,” while Mary-Kate answered, “Old Textile Elizabeth and James denim, The Row Button Down, my vintage jewelry, sunglasses and a pair of classic pumps.”

And finally, as for the best piece of advice the ladies have when it comes to a successful career like their own: “Don’t be afraid to take risks, well-informed risks,” Ashley quips before Mary-Kate adds, “[And] no is a full sentence.”
