Ashley Olsen has gone public with her new romance and she definitely has a type.
The 30-year-old fashion designer was pictured enjoying a Knicks basketball game in New York alongside banker Richard Sachs.
The pair were first linked last month and are said to have been quietly dating for more than a month, but things are clearly moving fast as she was pictured on a double date at the game with twin sister Mary Kate and her husband Olivier Sarkozy (47).
They were spotted at a spin class together in October and eyewitness told the New York Post they were "affectionate" with each other, a habit they've clearly carried with them as their relationship moves forward as they were pictured kissing courtside on Thursday night.
Both sisters have a long history of dating older men and Ashley was most recently linked to Foxcatcher director Bennett Miller (49) in 2014.
Meanwhile, Mary-Kate wed former French president Nicolas Sarkozy's brother last November in a very low-key and unconventional ceremony, one which reportedly handed out "bowls of cigarettes" for guests.
The couple wed at a "private residence on 49th Street" in front of 50 guests.
Olsen and Sarkozy are notoriously private and rarely talk about each other in public. When they started their relationship there were many raised eyebrows as the designer was 26 and Sarkozy 16 years her senior, with Olsen responding to the gossip in an interview with WSJ magazine.
"Everyone has an opinion," she said. "I find it's better to focus on what's in front of you and to keep putting one foot in front of the other."
