The Style Chameleon: Olivia Palermo
Olivia Palermo's been synonymous with chic ever since she exploded on The City which, sure, may have made her look a little like the bad gal, but also launched all eyes on her equally bad-ass style. And the positive stuff's all true: No one looks quite as flawless in person as Olivia does — black tie or blue jeans — even when the cameras aren't rolling and the flash-bulbs from her e-commerce and magazine shoots have quieted down. Of her "typical" day, the always-charming, always changing Olivia says, "I love that I don't have a typical day, that every day is different, whether I'm shooting on location or spending time in London, Berlin, or home in New York. I can be at shoots or in meetings, or in the offices of Piperlime doing edits on my picks, or working on oliviapalermo.com. Being able to be anywhere in the world and have my airbook, iPad, and iPhone means I am always able to work." Sounds about right — not only is she the face of Rochas perfume, but she also plays style icon to a generation of girls experimenting with mixed-prints, faux-fur, maxi dresses, and over-sized vests. Now a fixture on the New York (and L.A, and London, and Paris) social and fashion scenes, Olivia Palermo may pause spend time with her model boyfriend, but with a newly-launched blog on overdrive and brand partnerships for days, we bet it'll be a while till she (or her ever-changing style) quits.
