Olivia Palermo In Katie Ermilio - New Year's in April A Fool's Fete

Olivia Palermo attended New Year’s in April: A Fool’s Fete last night in New York City.

For the charity event, the socialite wore a vibrant Katie Ermilio Spring 2013 gown.

She accessorized with Jimmy Choo ‘Dream’ sandals, a Jimmy Choo ‘Charlize’ clutch, a Zara belt, and a vintage necklace.

While the color is perfect for spring, and the high-to-low hemline is right on trend, the look is quite heavy, and Olivia looks disheveled.

A shorter front hem, like that on the model, would have helped to lighten things up to some extent, but all that fabric, accessories and the detailed ankle-strap sandals is just all too much.
