Red Carpet Fashion Awards

We all know how much Olivia Palermo loves Bensoni, but it was Jennifer Love Hewitt who was the first to wear this purple animal print dress from the designers Spring 2010 collection.

The actress/author wore the dress back in March when she signed copies of her new book, “The Day I Shot Cupid”, at Barnes and Noble at Huntington Beach, California.

She kept her look very minimal by only adding black cut-out wedges.

Olivia wore her Bensoni dress to Elie Saab’s Fall 2010 Couture presentation.

Known for her impeccable style and keen eye for accessorizing, Olivia paired her dress with a contrasting animal print belt, nude t-bar heels and a silver clutch.

Olivia wins easily for me because her accessories make the look.

I recently purchased a Topshop leopard print belt in an attempt to recreate the clashing prints.  I hope I pull it off as well as Olivia.

Olivia Palermo is a style icon, New York socialite, star of “The City”.

What I love about her style is that she never seems to go for the obvious and she’s always supports up-and-coming designers.

Her current favourite is Bensoni.

The design duo – Benjamin Channing Clyburn and Sonia Yoon – create flirty, feminine statement pieces which suit Olivia’s style so it’s no wonder she’s head-over-heels in love.

Back in February she wore a sky blue Bensoni dress contrasting it with black tights and a black patent belt.

Her hooded Paddington Bear-esqe Bensoni coat was the perfect winter warm-up look to keep the cold weather at bay during London Fashion Week.

Olivia caused a bit of a ruckus wearing a Bensoni Spring 2010 ensemble to the “Guess By Marciano & ELLE Event” which you would’ve seen on “The City”.

I love the combination of colours, patterns and texture with this look. It may seem like a lot is going on, but it all works well together.

Finally my favourite Bensoni look was the leopard print silk dress she wore to the Elie Saab Fall 2010 Couture show.

I met her at this show, and she’s was such a sweetie. That show really gives her a bad rep.

I loved her accessories with this look. The leopard print belt is particularly interesting. It could’ve been overkill, but for me it’s perfection.

You can see more of Bensoni work by viewing their Fall 2010 collection on Style.com.
