UPDATE: When we first heard about Olivia Palermo's engagement to Johannes Huebl, we got a little ahead of ourselves dreaming of Palermo drowning in tulle. So much so we made our own Olivia Palermo wedding mood board. We know, we know - KEEN. But today we have a clue about her wedding style, thanks to her cover of Brides magazine.
Her tips for brides to be on the hunt for a perfect frock? "Check out the Marchesa, Oscar de la Renta, or Carolina Herrera shows online. And even if your dream dress comes right off the rack, add your own touch. Play with color. It's all about the styling!" she said. As for her own wedding dress she hinted: 'I always like to incorporate pops of colour.'
As for how she met Johannes she said: 'Friends set us up, and it just fell right into place. We're a great team. We understand and respect each other, and we make each other better people. It also helps that we both work in fashion and can travel the world together. We get to see the world through each other's eyes.'
2 January 2014: Olivia Palermo's Engaged!

Forget press releases and newspaper announcements, these days celebrity engagements are announced via a hand selfie on Instagram. But trust Olivia Palermo's ring reveal to be the fairest of them all, as rather than another picture of a rock on a perfectly manicured finger, her fiance Johannes Huebl posted a dreamy Instagram video of Olivia skipping towards the beach and with her pretty ring peeking out from under her hair. Swoon.
We would bet our life savings that this Upper East Side princess will have the most picture-perfect wedding. It's like fashion's own royal wedding. We got a tad carried away with the idea of an Olivia Palermo wedding, so we have spent the morning creating a moodboard for her. We imagine there will be more flowers than at the George V hotel and a fleet of vintage cars. We reckon Johannes will do the Hamptons preppy thing, in old school tailoring, while Olivia will bring a touch of Parisian elegance with intricate lace.

So what about the dress? She could be bang on trend and wear a sugary pink Vera Wang creation, as her Spring Summer 2014 collection was all pink everything. But we imagine Olivia P is a tad more traditional when it comes to her tulle - our money is on a sweeping lace Oscar de la Renta number. She did say in her Oscar for THE OUTNET campaign: 'His collections are full of pieces to keep and cherish forever. Everyone can feel beautiful in Oscar de la Renta.'

Then there is the honeymoon. These two are as at home on a yacht as they are on 5th Avenue. Whether they soak up the sun in St Barts, have an All American holiday in the Hamptons or return to a small island in Greece it will be fab-ul-ous.
