Celebrity Spotlight; Olivia Palermo

I think life is about falling in love with the right person, shopping, eating your favorite decadent desserts and traveling a lot.” — Olivia Palermo


When you hear the name Olivia Palermo what exactly comes to mind? For many it’s the bitch from The City.  Well for me that’s not exactly it.  Although, yes she was kind of mean to Whitney in a nice way, when I hear Olivia Palermo I think the classic, timeless, NYC fashion IT GIRL!

Olivia Palermo is an American Socialite who’s biggest claim to the spotlight is being the mean girl on MTV’s hot show The City. But there’s so much more to her than just that. Olivia Palermo is the daughter of real estate developer and an interior designer which is probably why she has a timeless style. Olivia was on the PR team for Diane Von Furstenburg and an Accessories Editor for Elle.com. She is now editor and chic of oliviapalermo.com she designs and models and she is now a wife!

There are many things we at Fashion Dazee love about Olivia but 3 things are at the top of that list. Keep reading to see what they are!

1. Menswear

Let’s be honest with ourselves thees not many things that are sexier than a woman in menswear who does it in a classy and timeless way and that is definitely Olivia Palermo. Whether her trousers are black or brown, fitted or loose and her blazer is open and comfortable or closed and structured she looks amazing!

3. The Ballet Flat

The ballet flat is the perfect day time shoe.  Sometimes when you’re in heels running errands you look as though you’re trying to hard, especially when you live in NYC.  Olivia Palermo is New York’s reigning queen of the ballet flat.  Whether she’s in a skirt, shorts or even jeans, she has what seems to be an endless collection of ballet flats.

3. Lastly her neutral palette.  

We love seeing neutrals because they are investment pieces.  They’re timeless and can be mixed and matched with absolutely everything.  Not only does Olivia have an amazing neutral palter but her twist not he feminine style matches perfectly with the color palette.

The Fashion Icon of 2014

This woman has definitely earned her place this year as a fashion icon and overall it girl.  Some of you will think I’m completely crazy when you see who I’m thinking of but others will definitely agree.  If you can take a moment to look past the dislike you may have for her and assess her overall wardrobe and ability to pair things together you’ll see exactly why I’m saying this.  Now it may be the touch of Kanye or it may be the maturing of this wonderful woman but Kim Kardashian West is definitely the Fashion Icon of 2014 and world renowned mens fashion magazine GQ seems to think so as well.

Kimberly Kardashian has gone from an unknown celebrity stylist to a reality star and is now the definition of a sex symbol and a fashion icon. Winning the GQ Woman of the Year award? who would’ve thought.  Whether you like her or not, whether you think she’s been “trained and dressed” by Kanye or not you have to recognize that every time this woman steps out her front door she is dressed to the TEE, every hair strand is in place and her make up is perfection. Now this doesn’t exactly make you an icon and if you ask Fashion Industry insider Kelly Cutrone she’ll tell you that Mr and Mrs Wes are hardly fashion icons because they don’t influence the fashion industry but a much as I respect Kelly Cutrone I have to disagree, they influence the general population, the people who aren’t sitting front row at the shows or having dinner with Valentino in his personal home. Kim Kardashion West is a fashion icon to young women all over and as much as Kelly would like to say she doesn’t, I believe she does influence designers.

Below I’m going to post a few of what I believe are some of Kim Kardashian West’s best looks!
