The fashion starlet, model and actress, who has become known for her impeccably polished wardrobe, is one of the most watched style muses of today. Favouring classic pieces and gravitating towards sharp tailoring, Palermo’s style is timelessly chic and effortlessly glamorous.
This editorial for Tatler Russia evokes the allure of Palermo’s feminine style.

“Fashion is something that interests me on a daily basis – it started when I would see my mother and aunt get dressed up and go out at night in the city.”
– Olivia Palermo
