Olivia Palermo Was Seeing Red At ‘Love Ball Arabia’

If you’ve ever mocked Olivia Palermo’s fashion credentials, prepare to eat your words.

The fashionista had a second chance to impress in Doha, Qatar, where she attended the Love Ball Arabia In Aid Of The Naked Heart Foundation And Al Shafallah on Friday (March 29).

As I said in her previous look, Olivia doesn’t often do drama, so this second look from Giambattista Valli’s Fall 2018 Haute Couture collection is quite a rare treat.

I much prefer this to the first, even though I wish the trousers fitted better.

This look feels edgy and modern, especially when styled with those animal-print fringed sandals.

Not stopping at the outfit, I love how her makeup had a moment with bold Bowie-esqe eye shadow.

Did she nail this look?

    Worst dressed of the year worthy. The make-up is interesting but her face looks greasy, not glowing.

    Looks like a duvet cover

    Yeah, I tried too — but no. It’s not just the fit. The styling (including shiny face, consumptive eye shadow, just out of the shower hair) doesn’t help.

    ooof…that is one ugly sloppy outfit.
    Its a mess of unappealing fabric. The shoes just don’t belong with it, and the reddish makeup is horrid.
    I cant believe Olivia chose this. Im one who appreciates her style quite often but this is a hard hard no.

      +1 but I am not generally a fan of Olivia’s style. This is a rock hard no from me.

    Horrid. Nothing interesting or beautiful about this look, imo.

    I think the sleek hair and luminicent makeup make it modern. Haven’t seen any more pics or videos of this look but I am sure she carried it beautifully. Not so sure about the shoes here though. She could have picked a teal, turquoise or silver sandal if you ask me. The fit and lines could have been cleaner but a nice change of pace from gowns and suits.

    No matter how hard I try I don’t like this.

      This is awful. Looks too cheap to be labelled couture. I could imagine a popster wearing this though but Olivia doesn’t have the attitude to sell this is anyway.

        Argh, I keep hitting on reply by accident.
