Fugger: Olivia Palermo

Fugs and Fabs: Celebs at the Dior Haute Couture Show


No Jennifer Lawrence, again. I believe she’s off filming the new Darren Aronofsky movie, but she may also just have sent her regrets, noting that the last time she went to this event, they made her wear this.

Fugs and Fabs: Celebs at Paris Fashion Week, Part 2


As regular readers know, I LOVE London. It’s one of my favorite cities in the world, if not my favorite. I could go there every month, happily. But Paris. Sigh. I almost think Paris is underrated — it’s that fabulous. Seeing all these people running around Paris Fashion Week in amazing coats is giving me a bitter case of FOMO. Not for the Fashion Week, as much as for the scenery, and whatever they’re doing on their off-hours.

Golden Globes Well Played: Olivia Palermo in Delpozo and Giambattista Valli


There are some people for whom I’m never sure if I need to post a reminder of their identities, and Olivia Palermo is one of them. Many people know her from a stint on The City, where she was presented as the bitchy foil to Whitney Port, and as someone with excellent taste in accessories but only a modest ability to hold down a (fake) job at Elle. But I also know her from covering Fashion Week during that singular 2006-2007 time period in which socialites were all the rage, and if you want to read a really dishy Palermo-centric tale (stolen identities! Pathetic letters!), revisit this New York piece about the site SocialiteRank.com. I’d forgotten how juicy and weird that whole scandal was.

Anyway, I’ve no clue what Palermo has done since the death of The City, other than show up to Fashion Week and other Hollywood events looking immaculately turned out, from wardrobe to grooming. She is, in fact, really really good at that. And she ended up with two pretty interesting outfits for the Globes, despite my utter confusion as to how she got a ticket.

I love this Delpozo, and I love what she did with it — makeup, necklace, shoes, all of it. There IS something nutty to me about her not snagging any kind of job at a magazine, or in some kind of Tastemaker capacity anywhere, because I would for sure hand her the reins to my closet and make her fix me.

She changed for the post-parties, for NO GOOD REASON (why would you part with that dress?), except that she must’ve decided this was her biggest stage and it was time to bring the thunder. Also, everyone is wearing capes now, so why not her?

et voila
