Of all the hotly-contested trends to pop up on recent runways and red carpets—crop tops, ugly shoes, overalls—few are as utterly divisive as cat-eared accessories. Back in 2009, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were among the first to popularize the look when they both wore Maison Michel’s several-hundred-dollar lace headbands to a party in Tokyo.
