They've transitioned from acting to having created quite the fashion empire, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen cover the April 2012 issue of ELLE UK.

The former "Full House" stars graced the Alexei Hay shot dual front pages with Mary-Kate clad in a Swarovski-crystal and sequined-lace dress while her sis opted for a crystal and gabardine coat by Prada.

Highlights from the Olsen girls' interviews are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to ELLE UK!

On how it's easier tackling their ventures as a duo:
"We are perfectionists. We always wanted to be closely involved with everything, totally hands on - that's why it works. If we step away, it stops working."

On refusing to share certain clothing items:
"There are some items we get a little possessive about."

On not being obsessed over their outfit choices:
"I sometimes wear sweatpants on a plane," Ashley said before her sister added, "I'm not very aware of trends or hot new items. We're not cool."
