Olivia Palermo In Ann Taylor – 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Olivia Palermo In Ann Taylor - 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Olivia Palermo attended the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 2) in New York City.

I’m not sure when I fell out of love with Olivia’s style, but this fur and fringed Ann Taylor number is just another example of why she fails to excite. I mean, a fur sweater, in June? Baffled beyond belief.

I wish she’d had more fun with the look.

Not even her Aquazzura ‘Madison’ feather-accented sandals, quirky Lulu Guinness perspex ‘Lips’ clutch, gold chunky cuff or reverse choker can get me on board with this look.

Olivia Palermo In Tibi – ‘For The Love of Cinema’ Dinner Party

Olivia Palermo In Tibi - ‘For The Love of Cinema’ Dinner Party

Olivia Palermo attended the ‘For the Love of Cinema’ dinner hosted by IWC Schaffhausen and Tribeca Film Festival at Urban Zen on Thursday (April 17) in New York City alongside Karolina Kurkova.

The fashionista wore a mix of black-and-white prints wearing a Tibi cropped sweater and checkered pants styled with a divine =black Emporio Armani jacket with Mongolian fur detailing.

Donning a pair of mesh ‘Lulu’ pumps by her favourite shoe designer: Aquazzura, she completed her look with a feathered clutch, flawless makeup and glossy tresses.

Was the clutch too much when considering the fur detailing on her coat?

Olivia Palermo In Matthew Williamson – Creative London Party

Olivia Palermo In Matthew Williamson - Creative London Party

Rounding off a day of shows in London, Olivia Palermo joined the fashion pack at the Creative London Party held at Princess Diana’s former home, Spencer House, yesterday evening (February 17).

The ever flawless socialite wore an elegant midnight blue embroidered Matthew Williamson Pre-Fall 2014 jumpsuit.

Always one to experiment and put her own feminine quirk on a piece, Olivia layered a boat neck white shirt under the jumpsuit for a refreshing take on this new eveningwear staple.

The rolled sleeves give a cool nonchalance while her gold Jimmy Choo ‘Jane’ sandals add a hit of sparkle and shine.

Overall it’s a lovely, well-polished look and it’s great to see the jumpsuit given a new spin. I just wish she’d added a pop of colour to this star-studded evening. A pink lip would have complemented the navy perfectly, don’t you think?

Fashionista of 2013 – Olivia Palermo

Fashionista of 2013 – Olivia Palermo

Stylista, fashionista, accessory aficionada… Olivia Palermo has marched to the beat of her trendsetting style drum throughout the year, whether she’s on the red carpet or on the sidewalks of New York City.

More often than not, the socialite favours a signature boho-chic, ethnic-inspired approach matched with a feminine aesthetic, which is often manifested through a range of refined, yet relaxed, looks by London designers.

Her ensembles are never without an accessory (or five), as she always fluffs up her ensembles with plenty of accoutrements—think armloads of bangles, doorknocker necklaces, oversized shades, her go-to Aquazurra heels, and bold belts and handbags.

We’ve seen her in everything from Alexander Wang to Louis Vuittion, Tibi and Willow, with her embrace of the high-street quite evident, as well. Over the past year, she’s shown off outfits from ASOS, Topshop, Whistles and Zara.

Yet she is also not afraid to go bold with sultry Roberto Cavalli gowns such as those at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala and the Cannes Film Festival.

Whether she’s posing at a posh party, or on her best street-chic behaviour in off-duty looks that are perfectly put-together, or retaining her place as a front-row regular at Fashion Week, Olivia works the fashionista angle in more ways than one.

Hair Trend Spotting: Braids

Hair Trend Spotting Braids 2
There’s no easier way to enhance your everyday hairstyle. Whether it’s a ponytail or a quick fix to keeping your tresses out of your face, celebrities are obsessed this season with braids.

Katy Perry pulled off a lengthy braided ponytail at the 15th NRJ Music Awards. For a full braid like hers clip-in extensions are a must.

Solange Knowles loves wearing box plaits, and she should, because they look great on her. To get this side swept style let the ends unravel freely.

Olivia Palermo, the braid connoisseur, wore two braids with her chignon at the 2013 Marie Claire Prix de la Moda Awards. The key to this look is using minimal product to achieve the ladylike softness.

Zoe Saldana’s braid is perfectly (un) done. For the effortless chic look curl hair first and tie a black ribbon on the tip of the loosely braided coils.

Is it just the celebrities, or are you obsessed with braids this season too?
