Olivia Palermo

The March issue of AVENUE features our seriously selective list of the 39 Best Dressed Women in New York. Here is just one of the 39…keep coming back to see who else made the cut!

Olivia Palermo: Show Stopper

She may have played the mean girl on MTV’s defunct reality show “The City,” but Palermo is the sweetheart of the style set both in New York and overseas where The Tatler crowned the Greenwich, Connecticut/Manhattan bred beauty “Girl of the Year.” Influenced by classic Hollywood movies, Palermo effortlessly blends street wear from Top Shop with clothes by friends like Rachel Roy and Georgina Chapman of Marchesa. And like any PYT, she covets shoes and jewelry (she even designed a small line of jewelry for Roberta Freymann in 2010). Always busy, Palermo is currently working on a new reality show that will focus on the development of her own fashion line. Her advice to her tens of thousands of fans: “A great accessory is always important. I have quite a few pairs of shoes, but my favorites would be my Stubbs and Wottons and French flat soles. For a fabulous heel, Charlotte Olympia is number one in my book.”
