Olivia Palermo Covers Cosmopolitan Magazine UK June 2017 and she looks smoking hot on it!

I think this is a very pretty summery cover. The cover girl is looking so beautiful, I love her hair and makeup, and the colourful outfit.

In my early blogging days, I was a dedicated follower of Olivia Palermo’s website. I loved her personal style and enjoyed keeping up with her various looks. I have not been on her blog in years, but I still see her work around of social media, and I admire her dedication. She has made a business out of getting dressed, and is very successful at it. This Style Icon is the definition of a Girl Boss!

I would love to read Palermo’s interview with Cosmopolitan, I would love to find out how she made a business out of getting dressed.

Here are a some excerpts from her interview with Cosmo –

Childhood Struggles

“You know, everything was a bit harder for me because I grew up with a learning disability. I don’t want to go into details but… what was wonderful is that people can be very creative in different ways. And we [she refers to her childhood friend Jonathan Simkhai, a designer, to whom she was close to at school] really strived to be creative and that really evolved as we got older… and not necessarily in school.”

 

I didn’t know Olivia had a learning disability. I am happy to see she has not allowed that stop her.

 

Fashion Week Schedule

“Honestly, my schedule is so tight. I have a show on the hour every hour, and appointments. So my priority is the designers and the collections. Of course, it’s nice to change once in a while, and support the designers, if you can, by changing, but there’s not always enough time in the day.”

 

I can imagine how stressful fashion week must be for her. I don’t envy that part at all.

What do you think of this issue? Have you read it?

Style Icon – Nick Cannon

The style icon today is the stylish Nick Cannon. For those who do not know, Nicholas Scott “Nick” Cannon is an American rapper, actor, comedian, entrepreneur, record producer, radio and television personality.

Nick Cannon is famous for being the lead act in the movie Drumline, and he is also famous for being once married to the talented and beautiful Mariah Carey. The couple were so in love, Nick even got a tattoo of her name ‘Mariah’ written boldly on his back, but has since had it removed. In other to get rid of the tattoo, he got a massive crucified Jesus on the top of it, which looks good on him. He is so lucky that there are now effective ways to get rid of tattoos, or he would have been left with the name of his ex on his back for life. Can you imagine that? That would suck so bad. I wonder why these celebs (and people in love in general) never learn. Having the name of your lover on your body is a very bad idea, because you never know what would become of your love.

I do hope Nick and Mariah get back together. I think they look good as couple, and I like them together. Their twins are super gorgeous and they make a great team. Rumour has it that they are back together, but on the down low and are looking to get married again, so fingers and toes crossed for them.

Nick Cannon’s style is so cool, and that is the reason why he is my style icon today. His style is daring, fun and eccentric. He has the charisma and charm to look good in anything, and he knows it.

Style Icon – Michelle Dede

Michelle Dede – the Nigerian freelance television presenter and actress has always been my Style Icon. I have admired her style for as long as I have known her; I remember spotting her presenting Big Brother Nigeria many moons ago, and thinking she was (and still is) the definition of Stylish.

 

 

Michelle Dede always looks effortlessly chic. She makes dressing up look fun and easy, like it should be, and that is what I love most about her style. This Style Icon inspires my style goals, and I am not surprised she has such an impeccable style. As a graduate of fashion design and fashion merchandising, I can see where her love for fashion and style comes from.

 

 

In an interview with In Her Closet, Dede describes her style as Eclectic, and says her love for fashion became official while studying in London.

 

My sense of style is eclectic. I dress based on my mood each day, taking inspiration from broad and diverse sources. I’ve always been interested in fashion, as a kid and in my teens in high-school, I experimented mixing and matching my clothes, to the amusement of my parents and older siblings.

I studied fashion design & fashion merchandising in university, so I was surrounded by fashion as well as gravitated towards all things fashion related. London is the home of unique, edgy, unconventional fashion which I love.

 

I agree, I think London is one of the greatest fashion cities in the world!

 

She has shared some style tips.

Wear shoes you like, not what’s fashionable or what your friends think you should wear.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour, style is individual, so if you want to wear red shoes with a canary yellow outfit, do it!

 

I agree with her tips, style is individual.
