Olivia Palermo Fashion Week Interview

60 Seconds With Olivia Palermo Before NYFW Madness

You could put Olivia Palermo in a potato sack and Crocs, and she'd still turn heads — but she's not just a pretty face. Olivia's gone from reality TV star to street style darling and fashion authority in her own right — as a Piperlime guest editor and editor of her own site, OliviaPalermo.com. You see, she's not just a natural beauty, but a girl with a serious love for fashion and a great eye for detail. She's one of the best-dressed women in any room — and any front row. Naturally, we'd like to know just how she does it. Here, she breaks it down in under a minute.

Olivia Palermo: Fashion Week is kind of just my thing and my team at OP.com.

PS: Last Fashion Week was rough with the snow and storms! Does practicality ever trump style for you?
OP: No. You can always be practical and stylish.

The proof, at left: Olivia stayed cozy and chic during the Fall 2013 Fashion Week blizzard.

OP: Yes, I think it's best to totally wing it.

OP: Lots of accessories and coats.
