Mary-Kate Olsen attended a Sotheby’s party and auction with her husband, Olivier Sarkozy, on Wednesday night. The designer stepped out in a long, black coat with lace trim and minimal makeup. But we haven’t mentioned the most important detail ...

She paired it all with white, Velcro Alexander McQueen sneakers that retail for $529.
