….. Thank you Brittany C. for the lovely introduction. Hello everyone! I am BB, and I will be making weekly contributions to the Gem Steady blog. Today will go down in history as the official launch of Gem Steady’s style star series. We want to give all of you a behind the scenes peek at what inspires our designs, wardrobe, and lives. Here is your exclusive invitation to see the fashion that makes us swoon, gasp, and stop dead in our tracks.
You have probably seen our first style star gracing every street style blog, and fashion related Pinterest board in existence. Our effortlessly chic style maven is an actress, model, and editor in chief of her very own fashion website. I am speaking of the lovely Olivia Palermo. With perfectly tousled waves, and sky-high cheekbones, the lovely Palermo is just as gorgeous as the eclectic fashion in her closet.
Palermo is known for her impeccable ability to mix patterns and textures. She mixes gauzy, sheer tops with stiff jacquard pants. She combines bright global prints with black and white stripes. Whether she is strutting down the streets of New York City, or strolling through a Parisian courtyard, Palermo walks with ease in chic stilettos.
While she may often be spotted in darling dresses and dainty skirts, Palermo credits menswear as her greatest source for fashion inspiration. She also takes notice of fashion savvy ladies she encounters on her travels, and even just walking down the street. Images from the ‘60s and ‘70s spawned her love of flowy, loose skirts, and cat-eyed sunglasses. Palermo has admitted to being an accessories addict, and she loves to spice up basic pieces with flashy jewelry and shoes. “With a great cocktail ring, you can never go wrong.” Palermo said in an interview with Vogue Italia
Palermo also earned her spot as our first style star for her innovative take on classic fashion. This past summer, Palermo wedded her long time boyfriend, Johannes Huebl in Bedford New York. While her outdoor wedding was stunning, it was Olivia’s ensemble that stole the show. She rocked a pale green cashmere sweater, and a breathtaking high-low sheer skort by Carolina Herrera in classic white. Palermo is never afraid of taking risks, which is very inspirational considering the fashion industry can be quite critical. It takes a true creative soul to step outside of the box, and create a new path for others. Palermo does not follow trends. She creates them.
Olivia Palermo is just one of the many fashionistas who get our creative juices flowing. We want to hear which style star you are inspired by! Let us know in the comments below, and your favorite fashionista may be our next style star!
