I gotta hand it to Olivia Palermo, professional clothes wearer and girl about town — she surprised me with her choice in wedding attire! Olivia married her longtime love, the equally good-looking and stylish Johannes Huebl this weekend, but instead of donning incredibly chic wedding dress, as you might expect, she wore a light cashmere sweater and white shorts with a satin and tulle skirt over top, all by Carolina Herrera. I love the look and think it was perfect for the low-key and small ceremony in Bedford, NY, especially given the rising temperatures. Plus, I think it’s cool when brides break the mold and wear something not-so-traditional on the big day. (I’ve always said I’m going to wear flip-flops to my wedding, not that I’m getting married anytime soon.) But what do you think of Olivia’s wedding ensemble? [E! Online]
How can I not like Jamie Chung’s outfit? It combines at least three of my favorite things to wear — chambray, a midi shirt and animal print. If I could wear chambray with a midi skirt and animal print shoes every day, I would. For the rest of my life, seriously. It sure would make getting ready in the morning easier. Anyway, to get this Amelia-approved ‘fit (yes, I just shortened outfit to ‘fit), check the details after the jump! Keep reading »
Olivia Palermo, professional pretty person who shops and attends parties for a living, has done it again! I mean, I guess it isn’t hard when nailing a perfect outfit is basically your reason for existence. But still! I love a Canadian tuxedo — aka denim on denim — but it can go so badly. Olivia’s rocking it well, though, pairing her skinny jeans and denim shirt with a chic black and white blazer, gorgeous gold stilettos and a bright yellow clutch. The next time the temps take a dip, I’m going to copy cat her. And now you can too with these pieces… Keep reading »

Happy Thursday, students! It’s time for an advanced lesson in print mixing, brought to you by professional do-nothing Olivia Palermo. I was so inspired by Olivia’s daring decision to combine three prints in one outfit that I just had to do a little Fashion Math of my own. Here are six ways to wear stripes, checks/plaids and polka dots — at the same time…
Gasp! The divinely talented, Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o is on the cover of the July issue of Vogue! And, surprise, surprise, she looks stunnnnnnninnnnnnng. The interview with Hamish Bowles is also interesting, detailing Nyong’o's childhood in Nairobi, where her father is currently a senator in the Kenyan parliament; catching the acting bug as a youngster performing plays for her family; her pursuit of a higher education at Hampshire College and then Yale; and the audition process for Patsy, her Oscar-winning role in “12 Years A Slave.” I especially love how she described seeing the finished film for the first time:
“I was really nervous about seeing myself … because it had been such a profound experience in all ways. I remember it being one of the most joyful times in my life—and also one of the most sorrowful. I didn’t want my experience to be a vain one. But I will say that when I watched it, my heartstrings were pulled so tight for Solomon that I couldn’t go into the ego trip. I cried—I mean, I was inconsolable. I wept for an hour after the movie.”
