Fashion Focus: Olivia Palermo

She may not possess the sweetest social graces but The City's Olivia Palermo has got her fashion cues down to a fine art. Stealing the style crown (and a job) from co-star Whitney Port, the catty DvF 'employee' is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to her polished sartorial sensibilites.
Never a hair out of place, this 23-year-old fashionista always manages to pleasantly surprise us with her quintessential NY city-girl apparel. So Olivia, as our new style crush here is our homage to your covetable wardrobe..

Embracing masculine tailoring at the Two Lovers premiere in February and ahead of the fash-pack in an asymmetric number during March last year.

Going girly in a Zac Posen frock and Zara waistcoat and popping in a bold yellow dress with emerald necklace and feathered clutch at yet another screening (wow, we never took her for such a film buff!). And on the right, working her favourite colour - black - in a sheer top and high-waisted shorts for Audrey Hepburn-style sophistication.

Brooching up in an LBD at a launch party in New York and throwing a wet-look jacket over this romantic ruffled hem dress for an after party last week. Notew: the girl loves her diamond earring - essential socialite jewelling.
And here's Olivia sporting some super on-trend harem pants (in champagne white for the very chicest of It Girls) by Reiss, available at ASOS here.

Inside Heidi & Spencer’s Twisted Marriage

It’s no secret that The Hills stars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag put their need for fame and money before everything else. Now, on the verge of Heidi’s 13th plastic surgery, OK!’s takes a look into their twisted marriage.
Heidi’s recent revelation that she plans to undergo her 13th major plastic surgery has her family and friends reeling. Aghast that Heidi, 23, would risk her life by going under the knife for her third breast augmentation, they’re blaming her husband, Spencer, for exploiting Heidi’s insecurity and encouraging her to have surgeries for publicity.
“I always used to think of Heidi as independent, but she’s become Spencer’s little blonde puppet,” says a Hills insider and former friend of Heidi. “Here she was, a smart, beautiful girl, and she’s changed herself so much that she’s almost unrecognizable.”
Spencer, 26, insists that he is opposed to her surgeries.
“I’m not in charge of anything she does with any part of her body. I’m her husband — not her owner,” he said after she underwent 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day
But insiders say Spencer has manipulated every other part of Heidi’s life from the day they met, so it seems likely that he could talk her out of more surgery if he really wanted to.
“Spencer has a knack for figuring out someone’s weaknesses and exploiting them. He knows how to push Heidi’s buttons,” says the friend. “She’s wrapped around his finger. She does whatever Spencer wants her to do.”
In addition to enabling Heidi’s plastic surgery obsession, the friend accuses Spencer of isolating Heidi from her family and friends — who might have been able to reason with her — to keep her under his control.
“He made Heidi give up all her friends for him. He even made her pick between her family and him,” says the friend. “I have seen Heidi cry because she doesn’t know what to do. But everyone who has tried to intervene gets cut from her life.”
Adds another source, “Spencer’s nuts. He picks fights with friends and family because he thinks everyone has ‘bad energy.’ ”

Where I work: Kelly Cutrone

By Victoria Granthamny
Job Head of the fashion p.r. firm People’s Revolution, star of Bravo’s reality show “Kell on Earth,” author of the best-selling biz guide “If You Have To Cry, Go Outside” and single mom.
Known for her hard-driving approach, the Syracuse-born diva embodies a particular brand of straight talk. Her wish for readers of her book, she writes: to “go balls out and follow your dreams.”
Dressed in one of her signature all-black ensembles — size 8 DKNY swing sweater, HUE leggings and $800 Stella McCartney zebra-striped boots — the foul-mouthed fashionista has a disheveled, witchy appearance that’s more rocker than publicist. It’s a look she calls “Amish psycho killer.”
D├ęcor Cutrone moved into a building on Grand Street in in SoHo 2001, when she was pregnant with her daughter Ava, and she’s gradually spread herself across four stories. She uses one as her home, two for work and sublets the fourth.
A rickety elevator opens onto a heavy iron door on three, which leads into the communal office she calls a “Temple of Now,” presumably a reference to her team’s constant, hyperkinetic activity. Samples, collections and papers are piled everywhere, and a half-dozen 20-somethings zoom around prepping for a Nylon Magazine Young Hollywood shindig, as a film crew wedges itself between and behind them to capture the madness.
Desk A giant rectangular white laminate table she shares with her entire staff. She presides over the head, and employees line both sides. “I had this built by two Korean architects. I paid way too much money,” she says with a shrug.
Detritus If she wasn’t tied up with her reality show, Cutrone could qualify for A&E’s new program “Hoarders.” She has collections of all sorts — statues of deities, ethnically diverse dolls, bejeweled kaleidoscopes, idiosyncratic gifts from fans and clients’ products (including vibrators and condoms) — sprinkled throughout.
The power publicist also seems to collect people. A 28-year-old New York version of Kato Kaelin lives with her. “He’s not my lover,” she notes, “but he is a jujitsu expert.” Patty Pao, a Harvard MBA she met on a plane, now runs a consulting business out of the space. “She’s so smart. I wanted her brain in residence.”
Work style Interestingly, Cutrone is big on old-school thank-you notes. She has cards imprinted with jesters, jugglers and other whimsical characters, and says she routinely breaks out a feather pen and hot wax to express gratitude.
Commute Cutrone’s morning commute involves riding an elevator from one floor to the next, but to get to meetings she hops on her bike. Though she refuses to incorporate anything beyond black and white into her wardrobe (“I look like I’m trying to do too much if I’m in color”), she rides a turquoise Trek with a white basket around town. In fact, she loves it so much she bought bikes for everyone in her office. Biking, she says, is “an irresistible mix of connecting to the Earth, plus danger, plus terrorism.”
Routine While Cutrone is short on details about her work hours and daily habits, her book describes working “every breathing moment” to get to where she is, and she gives no appearance of having slowed down.
In addition to starring in her show and running her business — which involves regular visits to an LA office — Cutrone travels around the country to promote herself and her book. She speaks at colleges — “for free,” she notes with some annoyance.
What’s next Cutrone’s working on a deal for a scripted show. She plans to announce details next week.

I'm all for a scripted show but I hope this doesn't mean we've seen the last of 'Kell on Earth.' Last I heard Bravo hadn’t renewed it for a second season yet but I'm still been holding out hope.
