Olivia Palermo For InStyle UK October 2012

Olivia Palermo glams up for the October issue of InStyle UK wearing a floral-print Christian Dior dress styled with DSquared2 sunnies and a Chanel ring on the cover.

Damon Baker captures the 26-year-old socialite-front-rower-model-brand-ambassador-blogger-designer wearing a selection of other floral pieces by Antonio Berardi, McQ Alexander McQueen and Dolce & Gabbana.

Olivia dishes about everything from not wanting to be compared to Kim Kardashian, her future business plans, the floral-theme photoshoot and looking her best at all times.

To read the feature in full, see the October issue of InStyle out now.

On not wanting to be compared to Kim Kardashian: “Whatever she’s done, it’s worked, but I do things differently. I’m in fashion. I’m in New York. I’m in London. And I’m in the rest of Europe. She’s LA… Our careers are very different.”

On always looking her best: “I like walking out of the house feeling fully pulled together. It doesn’t matter if there’s someone standing outside my apartment or not. I couldn’t care less. I like getting dressed for me and not them.”

On her floral-themed photo shoot: “This season you’re definitely seeing floral back in trend. Not only have we seen it on the spring runways but we’re also seeing it in fall which is nice and refreshing.”

    I love the dress and hair! BUT her face looks skeletal and her thighs… seriously… I know she’s a slim girl but her thigh is the size of my wrist!

    She looks lovely as usual but I have the impression that these pictures look a little too much photoshopped. Is it just me?

    She is collecting them covers. I like the editorial but the Photoshopping is getting out of hand.

    Close. Your. Mouth. That one expression is becoming incredibly annoying.

    I don’t usually comment on photoshopping but here it is super-obvious. This doesn’t look like Olivia. The clothes are nice but her face here bothers me. She’s prettier than that!
