I’m sure if you look in the dictionary under fashionista there will be a tres chic photo of Olivia Palermo. This girl encompasses everything that I love about fashion. She is edgy and modern while staying classic and subtle at the same time. She has that knack of throwing anything on and making it her own. I love the fact that she’s not afraid to experiment with fashion trends – and I guess having a gorgeous blank canvas like she does helps.
For those of you scratching your head wondering who the Chanel Olivia Palermo is, here’s some info – she appeared in the reality series The City alongside Whitney Port. She’s done some modelling, worked at Diane von Furstenberg, launched a jewellery line, appeared as a judge on Project runway as well as doing some work at Elle in the US. Needless to say she is famous for being one of the most stylish women in America- her looks are coveted by fashionistas all over the globe.
Being a jeans and tshirt kind of girl myself I’m always drawn to the street style of celebrities and models. Sure they look great decked out in their designer dresses and Louboutin shoes but I’m more interested in seeing what they wear when they go out to grab a coffee, or pick up their dry cleaning or go to their colonic- irrigation-yoga-mediatation classes.
So I’ve compiled a list of photos that highlight that classic Olivia Palermo style – fresh, pulled together and oh-so New York! x
