Olivia Palermo For Net-A-Porter’s The EDIT

unnamed

Olivia Palermo is this week’s cover girl for Net-A-Porter.com’s weekly online magazine, The EDIT, where she shares her style secrets and future plans.

In her ’60s-style editorial, the former reality TV star wears pieces from Gucci, Miu Miu, Calvin Klein, Christopher Kane and, of course, one of her favourite brands, Valentino. You won’t be surprised to see that bold accessories play a major part in this editorial too.

You can read Olivia’s interview over at The EDIT. Here are some extracts from her interview.

On great style being part of her family repertoire since her early childhood: “My mother and grandmother are very pulled together. They never leave the house without being completely, 100% presentable and that was instilled in me at a very young age.”

On her attention to detail when getting ready: “As you get dressed, take a look to see if anything needs to be done. I tend to go with the detailing. I have endless skinny belts. There is always a place for a big belt, but sometimes when you’re layering pieces you need to hide the belt and a skinny one does just that. Take a razor blade to a sweater if it’s bobbling – it takes the balls off. Double-sided tape is also one of my favourites. Oh, and if you want to roll your sleeves up and they won’t stay, push them up with very thin hair elastics.”

On her collaboration with footwear brand Aquazzura:“I’ve known Edgardo [Osorio, the brand’s designer and founder] since his first collection and he’s become a great friend of mine.Read More…

Olivia Palermo In Alessandra Rich – CR Fashion Book Issue N°5 Launch Party

Olivia Palermo In Alessandra Rich - CR Fashion Book Issue N5 Launch Party

Olivia Palermo attended the CR Fashion Book Issue N°5 Launch Party during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 30) in Paris, France.

The socialite wore a look from Alessandra Rich’s recently presented Spring 2015 collection with a Nathalie Trad clutch.

Cut from the designer’s favoured soft lace fabric, I love how the dress marries contemporary elegance with touches of whimsy via the fringed detailing.

While the dress would’ve stood alone for some, Olivia tried to counter that severe high neckline with a stunning gold statement necklace.

Does this work for you or does it come off too matronly, even with the contemporary styling?

Valentino Spring 2015 Front Row

Valentino Spring 2015 Front Row

Valentino’s Spring 2015 collection was presented during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 30) in Paris, France.

Clotilde Courau: The French beauty was a glorious vision of loveliness wearing a red Valentino Resort 2015 sleeveless ladylike dress given an edge with a leather laser-cut studded collar. I also love the contrasting blue-grey pumps she’s working here.

Olivia Palermo: Working a chic, sharp coat and shorts combo in a vivid green hue, the socialite once again opted for her python dual-colour clutch, adding a pair of Aquazzura ‘Sexy Thing’ booties to her look. You can always rely on Olivia to present a chic look with an interesting twist.

Ciara: *Sighs* Methinks this look would’ve worked better with the coat buttoned and belted.

Chloé Spring 2015 Front Row

Chloé Spring 2015 Front Row

As we would expect, the front row was packed full of PYTs for Clare Waight Keller’s Chloé Spring 2015 show held during Paris Fashion Week on Sunday (September 28).

Olivia Palermo: As you know, I am always fascinated by Olivia’s accessories. On this occasion she opted for exotic snakeskin pieces for her summery Chloé Pre-Fall 2014 drop-waist dress. Does it work? To some degree. It wouldn’t have been my ideal pairing, but she, as always, manages to make it work.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: The British model, who is appearing on the runway as often as she is in the front row this season, opted for simple summery Chloé separates, leaving her favourite Chloe ‘Clare’ bag at home on this occasion to style her look with a Chloé nude clutch instead. It’s nice to see a different silhouette on Rosie; however, the beige leather belt is throwing me off this look.

Clemence Poesy: The French actress flips the saying “I woke up like this” back to a negative.

Christian Dior Spring 2015 Front Row

Christian Dior Spring 2015 Front Row

The Christian Dior front row is one I always look forward to during fashion week; however, on this occasion I was somewhat underwhelmed by the looks the ladies were displaying this afternoon (September 26) in Paris, France.

Marion Cotillard: The French actress and Dior ambassador kept her look uber-simple wearing a chic LBD with cobalt-blue velvet ankle boots. I don’t by any means dislike the look, but as always I want just a little bit more from Marion.

Olivia Palermo: The only person who piqued my interest was Olivia. If anyone can spark some life into an LBD it’s her. Her double-breasted coat dress with sheer sleeves was accented with a Dior Resort 2014 scarf, dual-colour Dior bag and a her favourite Jimmy Choo ‘Dream’ tassel-accented sandals.

Dakota Fanning: Wearing a black Dior Couture dress, the black accessories I don’t mind, but I couldn’t help but wish for a pop of colour to the lips or a new hairdo (as always) from Dakota.

Who Wore Burberry Prorsum Better…Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse, Olivia Palermo, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or Sarah Jessica Parker

WWIB Burberry PonchoWWIB Burberry Poncho 2

Five style setters have been sending us a strong signal: ponchos will be big this fall.

Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse donned their monogrammed Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 poncho immediately after walking the show in February. Suki wrapped her around her moss-green Burberry coat.

Olivia Palermo wore her monogrammed poncho on a photo shoot in New York in July with a checked shirt and chestnut-coloured skort styled with over-the-knee Stuart Weitzman boots, Westward Leaning shades and a CH Carolina Herrera Casati bag.

The gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wearing her RHW Burberry Prorsum poncho in Sydney with dark denim jeans, Louboutin boots and a trendy fedora.

Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted wearing hers just last week over causal separates while doing the school run.

I really love SJP’s effortless styling, however, the chic appeal of Suki’s look won me over.
