Olivia Palermo Page 1
Just about everyone, from Marion Cotillard to Karlie Kloss to Bianca Balti, opted to bare their backs for today’s premiere of The Immigrant at the Cannes Film Festival. And yet, despite the inevitable lack of bras on the red carpet, there wasn’t a single wardrobe malfunction. High fives all around, stylists!
LBDs are classic, but they can also be boring. Seriously, how many accessories can you wear with a black dress before the look starts getting lame? Well, leave it to Olivia Palermo to show everyone how to revamp the wardrobe staple.
Last night, Ferragamo took over the upper level of the McKittrick Hotel and its lush rooftop bar, Gallow Green, to celebrate the launch of L’Icona, the brand’s online tribute to their iconic Vara shoe, which is celebrating 35 years on the feet of stylish women the world over. After sharing a very tight elevator up with Lily Aldridge and a gaggle of friends, we took in a performance by Vogue-anointed It Girl Sophie Auster, ogled the charming photos of Claiborne Swanson Frank, which were artfully strewn across tables and hung from clothing lines, and surveyed the very glamorous crowd.
That’s right. The statement piece seen on Ms. Palermo at the Fall 2013 Marchesa show could be yours. Enter here:
Big ups to Diane Kruger, Saoirse Ronan, and Olivia Palermo for bringing out their A-game at last night’s screening of The Host in New York City. Thanks for saving us from another worst-dressed list, ladies!
“Oscar’s attention to detail is simply amazing. The lines, the fabrics, the colors — he doesn’t miss a thing.” So says Olivia Palermo in the just-released video for Oscar de la Renta‘s line for The Outnet.
Oscar De La Renta and online outlet retailer, The Outnet, have teamed up on a 24-piece collection set to launch on February 26.
When Mr. Valentino hosts a party, everyone and their mother shows up. Case in point: at last night’s Valentino: Master of Couture exhibit preview at Somerset House in London, Duchess Sarah Ferguson showed up with Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie in tow.
“Black, black, black, black. Always black.” Whatever jewel tones and autumnal shades fashion glossies are touting this season, Elin Kling knows her color. True to form, the impeccably-dressed entrepreneur and blogger behind Style By Kling was clad head-to-toe in the hue last night at Home Studios for the launch of her collection for Guess by Marciano — a collection that, as you might have already guessed, is heavy on the whole monochromatic look.
Love her or hate her, Olivia Palermo has dazzling taste. So when we saw the former reality television star turned stylist turned model turned brand consultant turned fashion world fixture sitting front row at the Tibi show on Saturday, we felt the burning desire to pick her brain about how fashion week is treating her so far.
Valentino is having quite the week, and we’re happy to be along for the ride. On Monday we attended a press conference at MoMA to get the details on the Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum, and last night we feted the project with the designer and his fancy friends.
Shoppers aren’t the only ones gearing up for Fashion’s Night Out, designers are too! Stuart Weitzman is throwing a shindig at his Madison Avenue boutique, and we were able to talk to him about FNO, Fashion Week, and more.
Paris Couture Week is nothing without parties, and the one model Natalia Vodianova threw at Valentino Garavani‘s Paris home, the Chateau de Wideville. Vodianova and Valentino turned his house into a Russian winter wonderland for her White Fairy Tale Love Ball, which raised money for her organization that helps disadavantaged children, the Naked Heart Foundation. And with two notable exceptions, mostly everyone turned up in dazzling white couture dresses.
Last night we attended the Christie’s Green Auction and Vogue Runway to Green fashion show, and it was fancy. So fancy! The well-heeled crowd swilled champagne, bid upwards of $100,000 on items like the “Chanel couture experience“, watched Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha stomp down the runway, and got their groove on to Nicki Minaj. Fancy!
We pride ourselves on our sports coverage here on Styleite, so you can imagine our frustration when we saw a 7 foot tall man towering over the runway at Sunday night’s Tommy Hilfiger show and couldn’t quite place him. A flurry of emails between us and SportsGrid later, we had confirmation: it was Amar’e Stoudemire, Anna Wintour‘s new BFF and center/forward for the New York Knicks.
We’ve got some good news for those of you who have been seriously jonesing for your weekly Olivia Palermo-As-An-Evil-Villian-In-My-TV-Box fix. While The City may have gone the way of the The Hills and Laguna Beach, Palermo won’t be missing from your screens for much longer.
Last night, fashion’s boldest and brightest came out to celebrate the honorees and recipients of the 2010 Accessories Council Excellence Awards which are also and more pithily known as the ACE Awards. And at a show where Alber Elbaz is awarded Designer of the Year, Paper’s Kim Hastreiter is given the Marylou Luther Award for Fashion Journalism, and Kanye West is dubbed Tastemaker of the Year, you can expect the red carpet to be off the chain. Let’s take a look!
It’s official: The 70s trend seen during New York Fashion Week has crossed the pond and landed at London Fashion Week. Topshop Unique‘s runway presentation spring 2011 featured afros, bell bottoms, fringe, platform heels, and no shortage of celebs.
When we saw that Olivia Palermo had been named Tatler’s Girl of the Year, we weren’t only surprised, we were confused. Was Palermo really famous enough to warrant her own cover with the words “GIRL OF THE YEAR” emblazoned across her chest in pink letters? Apparently, yes.
Look, we love Livsy Palermo. She makes for such a delightful villainess on The City, she holds her own against actual models like Elisa Sednaoui in national ad campaigns, and designs bib necklaces that are pretty and that we might actually buy if they weren’t so overpriced. But we were still shocked to see that the UK’s Tatler magazine had dubbed her “Girl of the Year.”
