Olivia Palermo for ASOS
Olivia Palermo, who knows her not? She is well known as the ''bitchy-girl'' from The City, who doesn't support Whitney's clothing line, but despite everything you can find her on the cover of ASOS Magazine and in reality she seems to be a very nice girl..
a few quotes from the interview
about her bad reputation on The City
"It's unfortunate. But I think that people understand that what they see on TV is not who I am. It's not accurate. I'm funny, I'm enthusiastic, and I'm not a negative person. I always try and look for the good in things."
about the fact she's not supporting Whitney's clothingline
"I don't think I need to be forced to support anyone's collection through my production team. I'm my own brand, and I have my own opinion. It's unfortunate if someone doesn't appreciate or agree with my decision, but I'm entitled to an opinion. There are a lot of other designers I can work with and I'm happy doing that."
about clothing and style
"I just really, really love clothes. I think it has evolved as I've gotten older. I understand the industry a little better and I know what works for me and my personal style. Recently, I've been taking dresses in my closet, vintage or from a previous season, and re-draping them, adding my own personal touch with a brooch or belt. A blazer is a staple in my closet, but I'm trying not to look 100 percent polished. Maybe have a bit more of an edgy look. I'm obsessed with leather, obsessed, and I'm always in my French Sole ballet flats too. People would never guess that. I'm inspired by the places I get to travel to — I think street chic is awesome.
about the clothingline she could get in the future
[My collection] would probably be soft. And elegant — a really feminine collection. But I do love menswear, so I would probably throw in a few blazers and pant suits into the mix as well. It would have to be consistent though, that's something you have to keep in mind when you're designing.
