Olivia Palermo became the Grazia fashion crush of 2009 after we all fell for her polished, fashion savvy look, hook-line-and-sinker! It’s the wardrobe we’d all die for, sit back and enjoy a year in the style of OP!
January: Black on black tailoring with opulent accessories, Olivia gets the year off to a fashion savvy start.
February: Feminine blouses with sharply tailored jackets are a fail-safe look for Olivia. Her punchy accessories up the fashion ante.
March: A fresh take on tux- Olivia’s asymmetric top and platforms work wonders with her satin trouser suit.
April: Clashing prints was huge this year, Olivia nails the proportions of her look with a slouchy knit and leggings.
May: Spring is here with Olivia’s vintage inspired frock, she keeps her look modern with black patent Yves Saint Laurent tribute sandals.
June: So grown-up! Olivia goes all sophisticated for the CFDA Fashion Awards, simple accessorising and a neutral palette are the key here. (Loving the Topshop shoes too).
July: A simple cocktail dress is given a fash-over with killer accessories; neon detail platforms, studded clutch, cocktail ring and petal finish jacket- Olivia’s a fashionista through and through.
August: A master class in making a maxi dress look young and fresh- go for a slashed front like Olivia and team with platform shoes and contemporary jewellery. Bravo!
September: Sporting a leather jacket over her metallic cocktail dress Olivia works 2009’s fashion uniform to a t, (ankle boots and neat clutch are compulsory).
October: So lady-like, so fabulous! Olivia’s tonal pink and grey look is truly fashion forward, her layered corset over blouse is our first A-list sighting of the underwear as outerwear trend which is set to be HUGE for 2010.
November: Ready to party! Olivia works the lace tights trend perfectly (quelle surprise!) with a monochrome cocktail frock, we can’t fault this.
December: Arty abstract designs are the print to be seen in right now, Olivia works her ruched detail dress with a military jacket and complimenting jumbo clutch. Phew!...What a fashion-fest 2009 has been…can’t wait to see what Ms. Palermo wears next!
