Olivia Palermo Wearing Valentino | September 2012

Olivia Palermo Is Giving Us Garden-Party Glamour in Valentino

Taking a break from the Fashion Week festivities, Olivia Palermo brought one very decadent Valentino confection to the Natural History Museum for last night's Brazil Foundation Gala. While the fashion darling is known for her eclectically feminine choices — and is no stranger to Valentino's ultrafeminine designs — this gown took girlieness to the next level with its lace fabrication and all-over, 3D floral appliqué. The shoulders were particularly dramatic with enhanced embellishments, while the bell-style sleeves furthered the gown's romantic feel. To complete the look, Olivia offset the design with her signature styling tactics — a more modern belt that cinched the waist and added just a little contrast. We're used to seeing Olivia take fashion risks — that's part of what makes her so fun to watch — but we're wondering what you think of her glamorous floral gown. Did Olivia make the frills work?

 @Marisa Tom Agree - don't know if I'd feel the same way if I saw this dress on someone else, but Olivia can really wear anything!

I'm into it! Wasn't so sure about the belt detail on this particularly formal gown, but as per usual, Olivia looks amazing... in just about anything.
