Olivia Palermo In ASOS – Out In New York City

Olivia Palermo In ASOS - Out In New York City

Olivia Palermo was out in New York City yesterday afternoon doing what she does best – look fabulous.

Mixing high-end with high street, as she does so well, she wore a pretty paisley-print ASOS skater dress with soft swing pleats, which she styled with a black leather studded H&M belt to dial down the sweetness of the look.

The rest of her accessories included her favourite berry Louis Vuitton bag, snakeskin Pretty Ballerina flats, a gold cuff and reflective Westward Leaning ‘Color Revolution’ shades.

You thought she over-accessorized her last look, so does she get the balance right on this occasion?

Olivia Palermo In Tibi – Mykonos Vacation

Olivia Palermo In Tibi - Mykonos Vacation

Olivia Palermo was leading the fashion pack, which included her boyfriend, model Johannes Huebl, and Valentino Garavani as they explored the Greek island of Mykonos on Thursday.

The socialite wore a summer-chic look from the Tibi Resort 2013 collection mixed with some colourful accessories which enhanced her look.

A haltered bright-orange top was paired with black-and-white variegated striped high-waisted comfy knit shorts, but the magic really happens with the studded belt, Pretty Ballerinas print flats and wrap-around necklace with the neon-yellow and pink tassels.

The look was completed with Westward Leaning shades and her trusty Gerard Darel ‘Woodstock’ 24-Hour raffia bag.

Should she have taken one thing off, or does the look work perfectly as she’s presented it?

Olivia Palermo In Alexander Wang – ‘RED 2′ New York Screening

Olivia Palermo In Alexander Wang - 'RED 2' New York Screening

Olivia Palermo was also turning heads at the screening of Summit Entertainment’s ‘RED 2′ film, hosted last Tuesday at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

The socialite wrapped up in a casual, Alexander Wang cotton-poplin handkerchief dress, tied and knotted to create some element of shape at the front. Of course, that’s only where her look started.

In true Olivia style, she lavished on the accessories, taking her hankie into tribal territory with a multi-colour, beaded collar neckpiece dangling with silver embellishment.

Matching tassel-festooned sandals added another layer of ethnic flavour. And, if I squint, her black-and-white envelope clutch could pass for a zebra print.

This isn’t the first time Olivia has done the tribal-trendy look. Perhaps her closet has been inspired by her work as a Maasai Project Ambassador in Kenya.

Would You Wear Leather Shorts In The Summer à la Olivia Palermo?

Would You Wear Leather Shorts In The Summer à la Olivia Palermo

London’s heatwave has resulted in an increase in the sale of fans, so the last item of clothing on my wish list right now is leather shorts.

Leather shorts were presented during many Spring 2013 fashion shows, at Gianfranco Ferre, 3.1 Phillip Lim, See by Chloe, Fendi, Reed Krakoff and Trussardi to name a few.

Olivia Palermo was spotted out in New York City earlier today headed for a meeting on a sunny day in Manhattan wearing a simple crisp white shirt and Zara tan croc leather shorts.

As much as I’m sweltering on her behalf, she did opt for a light-weight option in a relaxed loose-fit style and a punchy hue, pulling the look off both coolly and effortlessly.

She styled her look with her can’t-live-without Aquazzura ‘Sexy Thing’ cut-out nude suede booties and her burgundy Fendi ‘2Jours’ tote.

Will you be rocking leather shorts this summer?

Olivia Palermo In borne by Elise Berger – ‘Girl Most Likely’ New York Screening

Olivia Palermo In borne by Elise Berger -  'Girl Most Likely' New York Screening

Olivia Palermo turned up the charm and let her hair down at a New York City screening for ‘Girls Most Likely,’ hosted by The Cinema Society and Brooks Brothers on Monday.

Like one of the movie’s stars Kristen Wiig, Olivia also wore a low-key white look with her borne by Elise Berger Spring 2012 flowery-lace, sheer blouse, flung over a breezy, short chiffon dress.

The top’s oversized silhouette and wide Peter Pan collar have Olivia’s name written all over them. So do her accessories, although she pared back her selection this time with just a Zara mini clutch, a watch and a cuff bangle.

She did trot out her Aquazzura ‘Sexy Thing’ cutout, nude suede booties, which we also saw her don in Paris during Couture Fashion Week.

Valentino Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Valentino Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

The front row of the Valentino Fall 2013 Couture presentation was nearly as drama-doused as the runway, as an array of lovelies let loose their fashion fantasies at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild on Wednesday in Paris, France.

Olivia Palermo: Mingling hard and soft, Olivia is perhaps one of the few who can work a fluffy, frothy black tube frock, worn over a structured white button-down blouse, to her ultimate advantage. Never far from piles of accessories, she topped off her statement with a bronze and black gemstone necklace, statement cuffs, and a Valentino studded carved transparent clutch.

Zhang Ziyi: Giving us a red-haute moment, the Chinese actress stunned in a Valentino Spring 2013 Couture cape gown, worn with Christian Louboutin heels, Boucheron jewels and an Omega timepiece. The sophisticated, old-Hollywood spirit of this silhouette had me at hello.

Miroslava Duma: Many of you will be glad to see that Mira wore Valentino at the designer’s show, taking a bold step in this lapis-blue Valentino Fall 2013 frock. While her black tights and chunky-funky platform sandals could have raised some eyebrows, they really only served to draw even more attention to this retro-shift dress’s sublime saturated hue—and her red lippie.
