To be honest, with her effortless chic, Olivia Palermo could be the style icon of any month. But in July, Olivia really showed her style credentials as she showcased a whole range of stunning looks. Who else could attend the Giambattista Valli show wearing a Topshop dress, and still outshine everyone else in the room? Olivia did this in July, and a whole lot more.
I love everything about Olivia’s style. She is always immaculately groomed, never a hair out-of-place for this girl. Her clothes always look effortless, she will wear a simple shirt and maxi skirt for a film premiere and make it look like haute couture. She is never matchy- matchy, sometimes the bag or shoes don’t entirely match the outfit, but the end effect is always perfect. She is a huge fan of the High Street, wearing an array of Topshop and Zara, as well as Mango, who she fronted a campaign for.
I was once in the company of PR extraordinaire Sarah Byworth, who is a good friend of Olivia. She told me that Olivia has a knack of making any outfit look like the most amazing thing you have ever seen, and she does it usually without the help of a stylist. Surely that is the sign of a true style icon?
