Olivia Palermo first came into our lives way back in 2008 when she starred alongside Whitney Port in MTV’s The City.

The stylist, model and brand consultant has been making headlines ever since thanks to her glamorous lifestyle and super chic sense of style.

But it turns out it wasn’t easy for the social influencer to get to where she is today.

In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, the 31-year-old revealed that she grew up with a learning disability and found it very difficult to retain information as a child.

‘’You know, everything was a bit harder for me because I grew up with a learning disability.’’

She didn’t specify what condition she suffered from, but she did say it encouraged her to create her own support system and surround herself with positive people.

‘’I don’t want to go into details but… what was wonderful is that people can be very creative in different ways.’’

On whether or not she liked being labelled an ‘It’ girl Olivia said, ‘’I’m not opposed to it. I have nothing to say other than we all evolve.’’

Since her rise to fame, Olivia has been the face of a number of high-end brands, including Max&Co and Banana Republic. She also collaborated with Ciate London on a beauty collection that launched in Dublin’s Brown Thomas in 105. 



You may have spotted Olivia Palermo rocking a seriously sleek military jacket recently.

If you didn't – well, she looked ALL sorts of fab. 

And suffice to say if chic Miss Olivia is wearing military outerwear – it's a sure thing fashion-wise. 

The bad news is that the coat is by Tibi and costs more than €1,000. And €1,000 is sadly out of your January budget (or, ya know, ANY budget ever).

HOWEVER, there is light at the end of the trend tunnel: Penneys has this fab number AND it's landing in stores next month

The very best part? It costs just €23. 



Get ready for this ladies!

Our dreams have finally come true as style superstar Olivia Palermo is coming to Dublin. Yippee!

The fashion icon is set to hit Brown Thomas as she launches the highly anticipated Olivia Palermo X Ciaté London Make Up collection. 

Customers will be in with a chance to meet the former reality star on the 26 September in Brown Thomas Dublin. 

Anyone who makes an Olivia Palermo X Ciaté London purchase between 21 – 26 September in store or on the Brown Thomas website will have the amazing opportunity to join Olivia for an exclusive meet-and-greet. 

Excited yet?! Yep, so are we…

Customers will receive a special wristband that will grant access to the meet-up, meaning you'll hopefully get a photo with Olivia, as well as having your product signed. 

As guest creative director of the brand, Olivia has certainly put her elegant spin on things.

She recently expanded the collection from nail polish to include makeup that reflects the star's own unique style. 

The new collection of cosmetics, housed in luxurious black and gold packaging, includes four Satin Kiss lipsticks, a smoky eye palette in nine of Olivia's favourite shades, two gel kohl eyeliners with blending tips and Cheekbone Cheat blush/bronzer compacts designed to contour and add warmth. 

We like the sound of that!

Olivia said, "When developing the collection I wanted to create a variety of textures and shades in the same way I love to mix patterns, fabrics and accessories to style the perfect outfit.

"Many of the names were chosen to represent not only the hue but the unique textures specially developed for this collection. Others are electric touches from my own life and style – I can't wait for you to play and discover the products I had so much fun creating."

Believe us Olivia, we can't wait either. 



Olivia Palermo turned heads during New York Fashion Week when she stepped out in a gorgeous tan suede skirt, which turned out to be a new season piece from high street favourite M&S.

Days later Alexa Chung was spotted wearing the same skirt, and style queens really began to take notice.

The mid-calf length skirt has since gained cult status and has been spotted on the pages of Vogue, Glamour and Red to name but a few.

Us mere mortals won't be able to get our hands on it until May 14th when it hits Irish stores, and with a hefty price tag of £199 (€278) it certainly won't be accessible to everyone. Fear not though, as we've rounded up some other high street suede options that will see you through SS15 without a hitch…

This gorgeous button down skirt can be worn alone or as part of the co-ord set, but we'd team it with a crisp white shirt for a chic spring look.

2. H&M
This imitation suede skirt is a great casual option that will look gorgeous with bare legs and flat sandals once the sun (finally) comes back out.

3. Warehouse
It's not all about tan and beige – team this grey skirt with jewel colours for a luxurious colour palette on those colder days.

4. New Look
A simple mini with a beautiful cut, this A-line number puts us in mind of Twiggy and the swinging sixties…

This wrap skirt is a different take on the trend and we are LOVING that soft forest green shade.

In today's segment "The Fashion Report", our reporter Emma Power gives you your weekly fix of fashion news and gossip! In this week's installment we're looking at DKNY's latest celebrity collaboration, the latest TV inspired fashion line and much more! Watch the video above to get the lowdown.



She is arguably one of the most stylish women in the world, so the news that Olivia Palermo is planning to launch her own fashion house is pretty exciting.

In a new interview with The Edit, the style icon and former star of The City has admitted that a clothing line is something that is definitely on the cards, although we may have to wait a little while longer.

“I have my hands full at the moment,” explains the 28-year-old, adding, “I would love to start my own [fashion] house but it’s not the right time. I feel like I can do it in stages and when the timing is right to do it, then I will.”

We can safely say that we will be at the top of the queue, purses flailing in the air, when this project goes down!

Of course, Olivia is no stranger to fashion design. While her fashion website is her main focus right now, she recently teamed up with label Aquazurra on a pretty epic shoe collection. Ranging from sexy knee-high boots to pretty embellished stilettos, the collaboration proved to be as successful as it was stunning.

We love Olivia’s immaculate style, and hope she doesn’t wait too long to grace us with some House of Palermo designs!

The staple white shirt is a wardrobe classic. Clean, crisp and totally versatile, it is one of those reliable pieces that we can count on to go with everything, and always looks super chic.

As with any go-to basic, it’s always good to have a few tips up your sleeve for updating and up-styling the piece, and these tips will ensure that your classic look never has to look boring.




With statement jewellery having a serious moment this season, why not pop on a vintage brooch to really channel that classic vibe? Place the brooch in the spot between your collar tips, right over your top button, to switch things up.


Bow Tie


AW14 is all about retro revival, with sixties shift dresses with pussy-bow neckties popping up everywhere. Put a retro spin on your look by adding on a cute chiffon bow tie to a sophisticated shirt-and-pencil-skirt combo.


Statement Necklace


If this season’s trend forecast is anything to go by, we should all be dripping in jewels – great news for those who want to get extra mileage out of that favourite statement necklace. Our tip is to go for a really dramatic piece, and make it the focal point of your look by keeping the rest of your outfit really simple.


Collar Tips


For those who want to tone down the drama, a set of classic gold collar tips are a great addition to a white shirt. Adding the subtlest quirk to your outfit, they are the perfect accessory to liven up your work wardrobe.




Before you get the wrong idea, no, we’re not talking about the baby type! The high street has gone crazy for the oversized fabric collar bib that attached just behind the neck to sit neatly over the top of your shirt. Rock a cute tartan number over your shirt to instantly punk up your look.

It can be hard to know how much is too much when it comes to getting dolled up. If you find you feel self-conscious when wearing more formal items like heels and full skirts during the day, then you’ll love the new ‘casualising’ trend.

The word was actually coined by Jennifer Lawrence in an interview way back in 2011, when she admitted she “normally find[s] a way to ‘casualise’ anything too showy,” but fashion bloggers and celebrities have really embraced the trend recently.

Solange Knowles used a cute sweater and long jacket at New York Fashion Week to add some fun to her monochrome skirt and heels.

Check out Olivia Palermo looking classy in a fringed skirt, toned down with a sporty bomber-style jacket.

By introducing a more dressed-down accessory or piece of clothing to your outfit, you’ll avoid looking too prim and proper in that gorgeous dress or skirt.

Here’s some tips for relaxing your look:

1. Wear a loose sweater or long blazer over tailored pieces

Adding something more free-flowing can relax an otherwise formal look, making you feel more comfortable in stiff-looking skirts and trousers.

2. Inject some fun to your outfit with a statement tee

A great way to dress down a pencil skirt or a fuller skirt is to wear something brighter and more relaxed on top. Try a bright t-shirt or tank top to modernise your look.

3. Mix textures

Combining chunky-knits or embellished pieces with sheer and simple fabrics can add an element of creativity, while still keeping your outfit formal enough for work.

4. Add some colour to your all-black look

When going formal, especially at work, it can be easy to become over-dependent on blacks, greys and other muted tones. Bold colours and neons are all over the high street this season, so pick up a few more adventurous pieces to add some playfulness to your wardrobe.

5. Pair your dress with a comfy shirt

One-piece items like dresses can be hard to change up, but a soft flannel shirt does the job brilliantly. Wear it over the dress or just tie it around your waist for a look that’s perfect for weekends.




Former The City star, Olivia Palermo is fast becoming a huge style icon – from her Carolina Herrera wedding jumper to her fashionable outfits in general. And now Olivia is becoming a designer herself, by launching her own shoe collection.

Olivia is collaborating with Aquazzura to create six styles of shoes for the Florence-based label.

Aquazzura x Olivia Palermo collection will include sandals, over-the-knee boots, suede boots, pumps and even gladiators.

Commenting on her shoe collaboration, Palermo said variety is important when it comes to women’s footwear.

“Every woman should own a perfect black pump, a go anywhere bootie, a strappy simple party sandal, sexy lace-up sandal and a statement boot that goes with everything.”

Inspiration for her new collection came from her own wardrobe.

“We talked about shoes and how at the end of the day you always go back to certain styles. We both had such a great time talking about it, we decided to do it.”



Reality TV star Olivia Palermo has given us a glimpse of her wedding day with new hubby Johannes Huebl.

The 28-year-old, who appeared in MTV show The City, married her model beau during a private ceremony in front of family and close friends in  New York.

Speaking about the day, Olivia said, “We really wanted to keep this beautiful day very private and special to us and enjoyed the whole day with our family and two friends. Bedford is such an amazing and romantic countryside”.

The bride wore a three-piece outfit by Carolina Herrera which included a cream cashmere sweater and white shorts with a full tulle skirt overlay.

The groom went for a matching Marc Anthony Hamburg suit.

What a gorgeous couple!
