Olivia Palermo: Fashion Week Fabulous

Jul 13 2010 • by Roselle

So remember the article I did on Olivia Palermo a few days ago (click here to read article)? Well, it looks like she has redeemed herself from that one because the stylish TV personality was all fashionable and fabulous at the fashion week events held recently in Paris (Paris Fashion Week FW2010-11) and Germany (Mercedes Benz Fashion Week SS2011).

At the Elie Saab Couture Show in Paris, Olivia wore a purple leopard printed number cinched at the waist with a leopard printed belt. For some reason, even though she mixed two leopard prints together (which would usually result to overkill),  the combination worked really well for her.

And as if the dress and the belt weren’t busy enough, Olivia decided on a pair of rose embellished T-straps and a rose patterned sequin clutch as finishing touches. Her whole look was definitely busy but at the same time, it looked very much connected and in harmony with each other. In other words, she looked really good. And for that, Olivia gets a thumbs up.

At the Boss Black Show (Mercedes Benz Fashion Week), Olivia opted for understated elegance with a twist.

She wore a simple silk beige number paired with an even more classic looking pair of brown pumps. But to keep the look interesting, Olivia chose a stunning flower embellished hard case clutch in a striking red color as the statement accessory.

I love the contrasting red against all the neutral. It’s very sweet and unexpected. For this look, Olivia gets another thumbs up.

And on her last night at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week,  Olivia  chose to go busy again. This time, she wore a black polka-dot dress paired with snakeskin sandals, a stunning neckpiece, a brown braided belt, and another bright flower embellished purse. How’s that for looking busy?

Yet for some reason, despite all the prints and textures, the combination worked. Perhaps it was because she kept everything else in neutral color save for the clutch. Or perhaps it could be that the prints and textures were not as defined nor as loud, which ultimately made the whole mix work.

Whichever it was, one thing is for sure, Olivia gets another thumbs up for this one.
