Olivia Palermo In Rochas - Rochas Madrid Event

Olivia Palermo, who is the face of Rochas’ new fragrance, ‘Les Cascades de Rochas’, attended an event at the French embassy in Madrid, Spain in celebration of their collaboration.

The brand ambassador wore a Rochas ivory jacquard short suit.

I pondered as to what was bothering me about this look, and I decided that it wasn’t the necklace worn over the collar, but the red lip colour.

For me, this dominates the look, so I find it hard to appreciate the finer points of this look.

Known for her love of embracing the high street, Olivia opted to wear her Zara cut-out booties for the second time in a row.

Olivia Palermo & Johannes Huebl In Louis Vuitton - Louis Vuitton Maison Munich Opening

Olivia Palermo and her model-boyfriend, Johannes Huebl, were ever the trendsetting couple at the Louis Vuitton Maison opening in Munich, Germany on Tuesday.

Naturally, they both wore LV for the occasion, although their looks didn’t exactly coordinate.

Olivia paraded out a dropped-waist, tunic from the Resort 2013 collection with Zara shoes, which she wore without the pencil skirt seen on the runway.

The ‘dress,’ as we’ll call it, certainly suffered no lack of details, what with its mix of puzzle-like patterns, embellished pockets, and an exaggerated Peter Pan collar. So, I’m glad this petite PYT left the massively chunky platforms on the model and opted to pull her hair back into a simple updo.

Johannes was a dark, albeit handsome, counterpoint to Olivia’s lighter look, with his double-breasted suit, royal blue tie and pocket square.

You may remember that Chris Pine recently wore a similar Louis Vuitton suit, except in a grey colour, which earned him a Best Dressed of the Week nod. Do you like Johannes’ version as well?

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.

Olivia Palermo In Whistles - 'The Host' New York Screening

Olivia Palermo was also spotted on the red carpet at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City yesterday for the screening of ‘The Host’, doing what she does best: mixing high-street with high-end.

Showcasing her love of leather dresses and affordable fashion, she wore a black Whistles leather dress with three-quarter-length sleeves.

I’m not at all surprised that the queen of accessorizing excelled once again.

She added a touch of pizzazz to her look with a multicoloured, tassel-accented Fendi clutch, diamond brooches on the neckline, a Cartier cuff, and another cuff with colourful stones.

An Olivia look doesn’t feel quite complete without feathers; they usually accent her clutch, but on this occasion she wore feather-festooned Aquazzura ‘Madison’ black satin ankle-strap heels.

Dior Front Row 1

A group of bold-named beauties held court at Christian Dior’s Fall 2013 presentation to see Raf Simons’ arty collection in Paris on Friday afternoon. While none were as dramatically dressed as fellow show-goer Ulyana Sergeenko, they still impressed with top-to-toe looks from the designer.

Marion Cotillard: The French actress played it safe in a simple black coat worn over a monochrome dress and paired with black tights and pointy stilettos. The one perk that kept this look interesting to me; the adorable over-the-shoulder box handbag.

Olivia Palermo: Stepping out in a dress from Dior’s Spring 2013 collection, Olivia worked the stripes and the fringe to her advantage. She kept warm with a black overcoat that featured yet another trend: fur. I loved her bright matte red lip and the flash of patent lavender on her shoe.

Anna Dello Russo: Always willing to break the style rule book, Vogue Japan’s editor-at-large was the only one who eschewed Dior. Instead, she took fur to the max in her Fendi number, ripped right off the Fall 2013 runway. The result? An interesting mix of primitive and punk with a techno edge. Her fuzzy clutch was just as “hair”-raising.

Burberry Fall 2013 Front Row

As is customary, quite the coterie of starlets stylishly resided on Burberry Prorsum’s front row to see just what Christopher Bailey had in store for Fall 2013; a collection he titled “Trench Kisses, A Collection of Classics and Christine Keeler.” While it was hard to compete with the designer’s gorgeous runway heroines, many of these cool-girl guests rocked their Burberry best at London’s Kensington Gardens on Monday afternoon and gave the models a good run.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: The British model and actress broke out a sleek coral-red pantsuit for her front-row seat at the show. Was it mannish? Yes. But with the slim fit and the impeccable tailoring, no to mention Rosie’s voluminous waves, she looked like she just stepped off the runway herself.

Freida Pinto: Opting for a cooler palette of jewel tones, the actress wore a dark sapphire corset and emerald green trouser from Burberry Prorsum’s colour-saturated Spring 2013 collection. Instead of the cropped biker jacket originally featured on the catwalk, Freida added a black sash detail to the peplum waist of the top. Without any accessories on this look, I would have at least liked to see the added zest of the runway’s golden yellow shoe. But she played off the black with her peep-toe wedge.

Rita Ora: We can always count on this British songstress to pump up the volume with her chameleon-like style. Here, she also went for a menswear-inspired statement with a navy suit that kept an edge with its ’80s slouch and rolled-up sleeves, paired back to stacks of colourful bangles, a “foxy” chain necklace and a T-shirt that playfully illustrated Rita’s new British BFF and model of the moment, “Queen” Cara Delevingne. The white version of those peep-toe wedges also made an appearance, as did a modernized bouffant-style ‘do.
