Oliva Palermo's 10 Fashion Decorum


1. In every outfit, I always try and incorporate a single trend, but in a subtle way.

    2. I would describe my style as modern, but classic.

    3. I always like to wear one very structured piece, like a great jacket or a skirt.

    4. For next season I like the look of all the embellished clothes, and those copper-toned metallics, although not everyone can pull that off…

    5. You don’t always have to stay high end – I like mixing and matching.

    6. My favourite item of clothing right now is a Topshop white cardigan with a pale blue pinstripe; it’s so easy to wear.

    7. My favourite accessory is my Chloe ‘Gemma’ bag, which I bought in London in July. I have it in army green. That’s such a great colour because it works for summer or winter.

    8. My favourite jewellery? I like chunky! I like to wear one big statement piece, a ring, a bracelet or a necklace. But I mostly like big rings [she flashes an enormous gold cocktail ring – Olivia has just started working as Contributing Accessories Editor at an American Magazine].

    9. I like to wear a heel, I just got some chunky black platforms that you’ll see in the Unique show..

    10. One great piece can take you through an entire season. Like, recently, I bought these Sergio Rossi silver brogues. I bought them in Berlin, they’re absolutely my favourite thing right now! -Garzia

    Among the items on their agenda: the protection of intellectual-property rights for designers, the creation of enterprise zones across the country to promote local talent, and the need to ensure that New York City’s garment district doesn’t become a denizen of more condos and tourist traps. “This caucus isn’t about the image of fashion, it’s about the business of fashion,” said Christine Brooks-Cropper.

    Abercrombie Fitch was ordered to pay $115,264, after they refused to let Molly Maxson bring her sister into a dressing room at the story. Maxson is autistic and even after her sister and mother tried to explain the teen's disability, the store refused to break their "one-at-a-time" in the dressing room policy. 
    Abercrombie appealed the fine and corrective actions, but sent the petition for the appeal to the Department of Human Rights by first-class mail, rather than by certified mail or hand-delivery. The company missed the deadline, and will no longer fight the penalties. -Star Tribune

    Sessilee Lopez Model Behavior Cat Fight With Chanel Iman


    During London Fashion Week critics were buzzing about how Chanel Iman’s boyfriend was accompanying her to every show.  While people assumed it was just love others say it was because she was worried about fellow model Sessilee Lopez starting some mess.  

    Some say Sessilee is known for starting trouble and most recently had a tantrum backstage at a show and began throwing chairs at people. On the other hand people say it was Chanel who started rumors about Sessilee because of her jealousy that Sessilee got the Italian Vogue cover and she didn’t. Can't we just all get along. Black models are scarce and most would die for such opportunities, cut the bull ladies.

    Minx Nails My Addiction

    MINX Nails are definitely one of the hottest trends in the nail industry right now. I've worn MINX to many social events and believe me , they are real conversation starters. I was introduce to MINX Nails in 2008 at Bella Mia Spa and fell in love. Once you wear MINX it is difficult to convert back to polish. 
    The MINX Manicure cost $40.00 for a set, the treatment usually last me for five days, and yes I go back for another set. My aunt has
     put me on notice that I may only have three treatments 
    per month. My addiction to MINX is so bad that, if
     I cant wear MINX I will not wear anything on my nails at all.

    The Fash Pack: Amazing. So were there any shows that particularly stood out to you in New York?

    Olivia: I would probably have to say Susan Moon. I'm a good friend of the designer. I think she is amazing and truly beyond her years. She has really elegant pieces. Also, Frank Tell, who I've watched for many years and supported showed a lot of dark metallic pieces that I loved.

    The Fash Pack: Your style is admired and copied by many who have been following you on 'The City'. Do you have any style tips?

    Diane von Furstenberg Talks To Harper Bazaar About Having Cancer And A Time When People Thought She Was A Has Been

    Bazaar: In 1989 you moved back to New York. Did you lose yourself? 
    DVF: Yes a bit. So when I came back to New York, I saw I had lost that identity I had, from the minute I first arrived. I just felt completely irrelevant and people look at me as a has- been. I tried to get my business back it was in the hands of people who did not care, it had lost its spirit, it was horrible. It was really hard and really bad. As a result I got cancer in my tongue, I think it was because I was unable to express myself.
    Bazaar: How did you find out you had cancer?
    DVF: I had lunch with Ralph Lauren, because Barry (her husband) brought QVC and we were trying to get Ralph. I did not really know Ralph Lauren that well, back then. We started to speak and he became very open to me. He told me he had a brain tumor not malignant." I asked how did you find out about it?" And Ralph said I had a noise in my ear and I went to the doctor. The minute he tells me that, I think funny, I been having noises in my ear. So I went to the doctor. He notice a swollen gland and took a biopsy. It was a tumor, they took it out and I had radiation for 8 weeks, that was 15 years ago. -Harper Bazaar

    Tim Quinn Interview He Is The Giorgio Armani Celebrity Makeup Designer & National Director


    MW: What were some of your first big breaks in the beauty industry?

    TQ: It wasn’t until I was graduated college (Albertus Magnus College- BA in Economics) and moved to Florida to work with Merrill Lynch. South Beach was in its full swing – the whole clubs/models/Versace in South Beach scene was fully of allure. I knew it was time for a change and I went to Milan – that is when I discovered my passion for makeup. I was fortunate to be offered a position with Borghese and spent several years honing my skills and knowledge throughout the US, Europe and Asia. My world totally changed when I was recruited for a position with Helena Rubinstein – it wasn’t for me, but the General Manager of Giorgio Armani ParfumsSerge Jureidini, was looking for someone to launch the brand in the US in August 2001. He promised to ‘make me a star’ – I signed on and never looked back. He is now the President of Lancome USA and a dear friend.

    MW: Which other makeup artists inspired you at the time?

    TQ: Pat McGrath, Kevin Aucoin, and Debi Mazar. Debi used to be makeup artist for Madonna at the time. I ended up working with Debi and Pat so it’s an odd world that keeps going in circles.

    MW: What is your philosophy about makeup & beauty?

    TQ: For me beauty is all about what makes us shine – I’ve learned from Mr. Armani that “elegance isn’t about being noticed, it’s about being remembered.” I apply this philosophy to my work. I’ve been so fortunate to work with some of the most amazing women in the world – not only in the celebrity arena but also as I continue to learn and grow as I encounter women of all ages and life paths.

    MW: What have been some of your most memorable celebrity collaborations so far, and which celebrity you would like to do makeup for in the future?

    TQ: I often go blank when the celebrity questions come up – I have vivid memories of my first meetings with Debra MessingGlenn CloseFarrah Fawcett (an amazing spirit- gorgeous inside and out, and taken from us way too early) Kerry WashingtonAndrea Mitchell (who has been an amazing friend – helping me when I was diagnosed with Cancer two years ago). As for the future – the Emmy’s are soon and I’ve sent ‘faces’ out to many of the nominee’s. True Blood is my favorite show, so I’d love to work with Anna Paquin. -Talking Makeup
