Olivia Palermo In Rochas – Princess Grace Foundation Annual Gala

Olivia Palermo strolled down the red carpet hand-in-hand with her longtime boyfriend Johannes Huebl when she attended the Princess Grace Awards Foundation Gala earlier this week in New York City.

To celebrate the event the socialite seemed to channel her inner Grace Kelly wearing a peach-colored Rochas dress, which she teamed with a matching Giorgio Armani fur stole.

While I usually like anything Olivia wears, to me, this felt a bit too ‘little girl playing dress up in mom’s closet’. The outfit was very matchy-matchy and the dress fits poorly around the bust.

She kept up the monochromatic look my pairing the ensemble with Charlotte Olympia pumps. Olivia smartly kept her jewelry simple—yellow diamond drop earrings and gold bracelets both by Carrera y Carrera.

Olivia opted for a navy clutch – which kills the look – a simple updo and natural makeup provided the finishing touches.

Do you think this ensemble is too costumey or just right?

  1. I’m ok with the clutch which helps to make it look a bit less ‘little girl’ but the shoe I can’t forgive.

    That dress look like something off of project runway…

    That stole was hiding a true tragedy. She’s flatchested to begin with but that dress just highlights in a very bad way. From the pale makeup to the shoes (which are fine by themselves), nothing works here.
    Even her boyfriend isn’t looking as good as usual…

    rare misstep for her. I wonder how good the fur wrap might have looked with a dark dress….

    the only thing i like are the shoes. by themselves….

    She looks like a sweet sixtenns girl, such a dissappointment

    Personnally, I’m not crazy about Olivia Palermo’s style and this particular look doesn’t excite me at all. Like you said, the dress look ill-fitted in the bust area and the fabric looks really cheap. But I kinda like the blue clutch.

    She typically looks so well put together but here she looks like a boy in a boy. Not flattering at all and the makeup is terrible

    This is down right ugly. Horrible horrible horrible.

    this look is just terrible. her breasts look like they are sitting at her stomach, the fabric looks a bit cheap, what on earth is that clutch doing and the dress does not go well with the shoes.

      agreed! Maybe the clutch could work if it was in a baby blue shade, this makes no sence..

    Bad fit, bad color and bad makeup.

    Honey, how many times have I told you not to play with mommy’s clothes??
    Too matchey, the clutch is weird, and the shoes look like a bridesmaid should wear them. She can do better.

    I think fabric like that photographs cheap but is really pretty. Though overall, my mind was thinking that it was a reject “Sexy Belle” costume left over from halloween for not being too sexy enough.

    I don’t like it, at all. The fit is bad and the fabric seems cheap, I don’t like the accessories she chose at all, because the blue clutch is nonsense. A miss, for me. I also think that she does great for what concerns daily time looks, but when it comes to the evening, she’s often disappointing. And why did he choose that “pochette” (that’s how we call in Italy the handkerchief for the pocket of the jacket)? Awful.

      too right Emi what is going on with that “pochette” , ew ew ew

    I don’t think that her ensemble is too costumey at all. What I do take offence at is the wretched fit on that dress though. It looks so poorly-fitted and the shiny fabric shows every up every flaw. This could have been a great look, but that chest area just killed it.

    Ugh, dare I say ugly?

  17. Goodie November 4, 2011 at 11:33 #

    it’s the first time I don’t like what Olivia is wearing…

    Just a really unflattering neckline on her, it needs someone with some bust to fill it out. She’s normally spot on, but this doesn’t exactly set the world on fire.
