What a tomboy! Just kidding. Attending the Valentino Fall 2012 haute couture show in Paris last week, Olivia Palermo couldn’t have looked any girlier if she tried. And I like it! Her cocktail of bubble-gum pink lace, courtesy of Valentino, of course (the only house who could execute such unapologetic froth and still make it chic), and sparkles shouldn’t work, but it all feels as natural as can be on the young socialite.
Maybe it’s because you just can’t go wrong with Giuseppe Zanotti, or his decadent, crystal-encrusted suede sandals, out of his Spring 2011 collection. With just a splash of showgirl verve, they take any outfit from eh to amazing. Topped with a dove-gray snakeskin clutch and red nails, and this ensemble has all the right elements to satisfy the most feminine of femmes.
Here’s how you girly-girls can emulate her look, right down to her Cinderella-worthy sandals:
