Cover Loving: Olivia Palermo For Brides

olivia palermo brides cover Cover Loving: Olivia Palermo For Brides %tag

Ever since Olivia Palermo released her engagement via a very well-edited and beautiful Instagram video at New Year I have been wondering how long it would take a wedding magazine to get her on the cover – well it seems Brides US has snagged the fashion icon and bride-to-be for its June/July issue.

I love Olivia’s flawless, classic-yet-eclectic style, she is a girl who knows how to mix designer and high street, I adore that she is a fan of Zara and Mango, plus she really can work an accessory – I wish I had her jewellery collection, so I have to be honest I am quite interested to see what sort of bride she will be.

The styling of this shoot is a little edgy, very non-traditional and totally fun and stylish – the cover totally sets the feel of the shoot with Olivia looking incredible wearing a strapless silk-mesh-organza Marchesa wedding dress paired with a wool-crepe Marcelo Giacobbe jacket and her signature tousled ponytail.

The look that really caught my attention though had to be ruffled blush tulle Monique Lhuillier ball gown teamed with a crisp white Brooks Brothers Oxford shirt and striking drop earrings – I love this idea for a city elopement or even a beach wedding – it is fun yet still very bridal. Her final look is a lace fit-and-flare Elie Saab wedding dress with sheer ruffle skirt and long-sleeves - another outstanding dress – it just shows that whether it is strapless, with long-sleeves or with a ball gown skirt she is going to look gorgeous on her big day. 

The socialite has been keeping tight-lipped about what she was going to actually wear down the aisle but did give the magazine some tips for brides-to-be:

“Check out the MarchesaOscar de la Renta, or Carolina Herrera shows online,” Olivia told the mag. “And even if your dream dress comes right off the rack, add your own touch. Play with colour. It’s all about the styling!”

I can’t wait to see the whole cover shoot when Brides June/July is out next month.

Cannes Film Festival: Roberto Cavalli Transforms Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo amfar Cannes Film Festival: Roberto Cavalli Transforms Olivia Palermo %tag

It seems that the French Riviera has had an effect on Olivia Palermo or maybe that should be Italian designer Roberto Cavalli has, as it seems that Cannes Film Festival has turned her into a new woman. Always one for a stylish entrance, Olivia Palermo is known for her chic looks, but while in Cannes it seems that she let out the diva inside her with the help of Roberto Cavalli’s signature sexy dresses.

The most surprising of her three Cavalli looks had to be the animal printed gown she wore to the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala. Olivia always looks hot, but I don’t think I have ever seen her wear such a daring or flesh revealing dress with all the cut-outs and that thigh-high split totally rivals Angelina Jolie!!! It is such a departure from her usual red carpet looks and I absolutely loved it – so totally fitting for Cannes and she has the body to pull it off.

While I had to look twice to confirm it was Olivia in the animal printed gown, she seemed more comfortable in the gold sequin halter gown that she wore to the ‘The Immigrant’ premiere accompanied by her hunky boyfriend Johannes Huebl. Still completely Cavalli, this look has more of her signature style with the embellished blazer and her feathered clutch. I not technically sold on the need for the blazer, I think this dress shined all on its own, but it is so her and maybe after showing off a lot of flesh the night before she wanted to stamp her style on Cannes.

Out of the three looks I think I prefer the gold gown on her that dramatic train with the sequins is so Cannes, I just can’t get over the blazer, but I think for the shock and it being so out of her comfort zone that animal printed cut-out dress might be my favourite of her looks, however I do think her embellished long-sleeved mini worn to the designers dinner party is when the socialite is totally at ease – she is even smiling in the piccie!!!

What do you think of Olivia Palermo’s red carpet transformation? Which Roberto Cavalli look is your favourite?

LFW AW12: Pringle Of Scotland – Classy Knitwear

Pringle8 LFW AW12: Pringle Of Scotland   Classy Knitwear %tag

This was one of my favourite shows, not only was the front row glamorous, but the collection had a modern-yet-contemporary feel about it that made me want every single piece that came down the runway especially all the coats.

Inspired by Alistair Carr’s return to the UK and his memories of youth, there is a Clueless-meets-school girl vibe to the collection in the twin-sets, box pleats and flashes of neon pink. Carr delved into the Pringle archives and produced a very classy line of knitwear staples with everything from polo necks, twin-sets, ribbed knitted dresses.

There seemed to be a lot more focus on outerwear this season, which I adored, I loved all the coats from the voluminous cocoon shapes in contrasting autumnal orange and navy, to the military inspired tailored, pocketed coats in cobalt blue and grey,  and the gorgeous short bombers with high-collars – all teamed with flattering trousers, skirts, and dresses.

Top of my wishlist has to be the navy coat with the giant pink lapels – I adore this. One thing I wish would go away however has to be the dip-dye hair, I am still just not feeling it.

The front row at Pringle was one of my best shows I attended this season, and my first LFW sighting of Olivia Palermo. But who I was most excited about seeing was the gorgeous Rose Byrne, who just looked incredible in her autumn/winter 2012 Pringle dress, and I have to say she is more beautiful up close.

Shop Her Style: Olivia Palermo in Pringle of Scotland

OliviaPalermo PringleofScot Shop Her Style: Olivia Palermo in Pringle of Scotland %tag

Who: Olivia Palermo

Where: Out and about in New York

Wearing: All wrapped up in a felted drummer Pringle of Scotland jacket from the pre-fall collection, teamed with MiH Marrakesh Jeans, a print scarf, Chanel leather gloves, a statement Lulu Frost necklace, and a Valentino croc-studded tan tote with a hook fastening.

Verdict: For me Olivia is known for her amazing style, I have loved her red carpet looks, but for me a casual-chic Olivia is when she is at her best. I love this look from head-to-toe, from those gorgeous super flattering kick flares to that exquisite double-breasted zip-down merino wool jacket, I just adore its mini-pea-coat vibe. But for me this look is completely made by that rock ‘n’ roll Valentino studded tote – how gorgeous is that!!!!

Buy Her Style: The drummer Pringle of Scotland jacket was £395 but is currently only £198 – so snap it up quick. And those amazing flatter jeans are also marked down from £165 to £115.50. Now if only I could find that Valentino in the sale!!!!

LFW Party: Olivia Palermo Wears Giambattista Valli

245620112 LFW Party: Olivia Palermo Wears Giambattista Valli %tag

Who: New York socialite Olivia Palermo

Where: At Vivienne Westwood’s party during London Fashion Week

Wearing: A black and white print Giambattista Valli dress from the resort 2011 collection paired with heels from the spring/summer 2011 collection

Verdict: I have seen a number of dresses from the Giambattista Valli resort collection hitting the red carpet, but I think this is one of my favourite. I think a lot of it is to do with Olivia wearing it to be honest, as she looks completely gorgeous in this dress. I have been hoping to bump into Olivia while she is in town, but sadly not as yet.

AW10 Campaign: Olivia Palermo For Hogan

The City beauty Olivia Palermo stars alongside her hunky boyfriend Johannes Huebl in the new Hogan autumn 2010 ad campaign. It has a quirky feel to it not just in the poses, which makes me a little uneasy as I am not sure it works, but also the use of black and white with colour.

What surprises me is that Olivia looks quite soft in this image and in the campaign video she looks fun.

MTV really have done wonders for their reality stars, LC had her own clothing line and is now collaborating with Kohl’s, Whitney Port has her own collection Whitney Eve brand, and even Heidi Montag had her own budget line. Now it is the time for The City’s stylist socialite Olivia Palermo to try her hand at designer – but not clothing she has gone for a jewellery line.

Obviously taking on what she learnt as Accessories Editor at Elle magazine she has teamed up with Roberta Freyman and the limited edition collection has five statement necklace inspired by their favorite cities of the world – from Paris’ chicest to one of Manhattan’s trendiest neighborhoods.

‘I am thrilled to be partnering with Roberta for my first foray into design,’ says Palermo. ‘As a longtime supporter and admirer of her accessories, I felt a collaboration between Roberta and myself would be an ideal fit. I’m honoured and excited to bring a touch of my own personal style aesthetic to her brilliant collection.’

The spring collection includes the Mitte, named after Berlin’s oldest and most central borough’s, features a brilliant green combination of sequins and faceted stones set against emerald green silk, and the Tribeca, a nod to Olivia’s first Roberta Freymann signature necklace featuring blue, clear and white colorways.
