Olivia Palermo is a style icon, New York socialite, star of “The City”.
What I love about her style is that she never seems to go for the obvious and she’s always supports up-and-coming designers.
Her current favourite is Bensoni.
The design duo – Benjamin Channing Clyburn and Sonia Yoon – create flirty, feminine statement pieces which suit Olivia’s style so it’s no wonder she’s head-over-heels in love.
Back in February she wore a sky blue Bensoni dress contrasting it with black tights and a black patent belt.
Her hooded Paddington Bear-esqe Bensoni coat was the perfect winter warm-up look to keep the cold weather at bay during London Fashion Week.
Olivia caused a bit of a ruckus wearing a Bensoni Spring 2010 ensemble to the “Guess By Marciano & ELLE Event” which you would’ve seen on “The City”.
I love the combination of colours, patterns and texture with this look. It may seem like a lot is going on, but it all works well together.
Finally my favourite Bensoni look was the leopard print silk dress she wore to the Elie Saab Fall 2010 Couture show.
I met her at this show, and she’s was such a sweetie. That show really gives her a bad rep.
I loved her accessories with this look. The leopard print belt is particularly interesting. It could’ve been overkill, but for me it’s perfection.
