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.

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Several stars arrived at the Hotel Des Invalides in Paris, France this afternoon for the Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture presentation, with Marion Cotillard as the surprise absentee.

Jennifer Lawrence: The Oscar-winning actress and current face of Miss Dior was of course front row, getting a first look at her next red carpet look, no doubt. Jennifer selected a printed pastel-metallic guipure top with charcoal wool trousers with a stripe down one side and pleats down the other from the Resort 2014 collection. Black Dior sunglasses, shoes and a Dior fine jewelry ‘Bois de Rose’ bracelet. You are expecting me to say that I dislike the black pumps; well, I am too busy saving all my dislike for those pants. The colour, the style, the pleats: nothing about them work for me.

Miroslava Duma: After a pretty lacklustre weekend fashion-wise, Miroslava finally gives me a red carpet look I can love. The fashion editor selected a Dior Resort 2014 ivory bustier dress with blue-, orange- and pink-striped panels, which she styled with an Hermes black bag and lust-worthy blue pumps.

Olivia Palermo: The socialite, who is a regular in the front row at Dior, wore a full Dior look. Usually she marches to the beat of her own drum and will wear even high-street looks like Zara and Topshop to Fashion week; on this occasion she wore a Dior white jacket paired with a pink-and-blue organza skirt with all-Dior accessories, including cuffs on both wrists, an embellished belt, and a white clutch. I love everything bar the skirt. I almost wish the jacket was long enough to pass off as a dress.

Who Wore Louis Vuitton Better…Lea Seydoux or Olivia Palermo?

Who Wore Louis Vuitton Better Lea Seydoux or Olivia Palermo

Back in October last year, French actress Lea Seydoux attended the London Film Festival premiere for ‘Sister’ wearing a Louis Vuitton Resort 2013 beautifully detailed white and cream dress. Her ode to the 60?s dress was styled with bright-pink pumps, a matching lip colour, and a gold metallic clutch.

Last month, Olivia Palermo was captured in the same dress while attending the Louis Vuitton Maison opening in Munich, Germany.

She frequently mixes high-end brands with high street, so I was not surprised to see her frock styled with Zara heels.

Pink was such an unexpected choice when it came to styling this frock; however, I love the more complement tan hue of Olivia’s Zara sandals.
