Olivia Palermo is brilliant. Her intuition of fashion and knack for the eclectic is evident in her clothes. Her impeccable taste is inevitable time and time again, everything from her vintage Hermes, boutique jewelry, and a man candy to tie it all together. Her classic beauty creates a palette that enables any style to be sculpted to her. For some people the clothes wear them and others wear the clothes. Olivia owns the clothes. She takes the simplicity of a sheer chiffon blouse and pencil woven skirt and creates a masterpiece of art. A painting of design. She truly is an icon of what endless possibilities are fermented with the essentials of design. Essentials that any red-blooded american would own, but Olivia isnt the average women, she is a muse, a lover of the luxury of art, and an artist.
The worldly success and growth of the contemporary line "The Row" has made designers and the CFDA stop and stare. For the multi-talented dynamic duo of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen success is second nature and raw talent is a given. They bring, what some say, a new future to fashion. With an award on the horizon by the Council of Fashion, the once Fullhouse-Twinsation-phenomenon could be Swarovskis choice for this years Womenswear line. An award which many world renowned designers have been so graciously dubbed with. They have tweaked from film to fashion and child-stars to icons. But most importantly they have created a label that undoubtedly proves the emense talent these articulate designers possess.
I have decided that this "blog" thing is completely over done. I know, I know Social Networking is the it thing to do as of Myspace, Twitter and of course Facebook (all hale Mark Zukerburg.) Now don't get my wrong, the power and resources that come within the world of web are phenomenal...but I still have my reserves. Maybe I'm just a skeptic or a realist or maybe it is just plain jealousy? Ya that is it! How!? I ask! How does a nobody become a somebody over night!? I'll tell you how, with the mere result of uploading a YouTube video, or raising money (including from their own pocket) for a good cause, or captioning an abstract photo of their daily fashion!? How does this media circus really work? How do they decide who makes the cut? Who has "the look"? Who has the backbone? or who has "the Star" quality? It continually itches at me, keeps me up at night, and causes me to question why social networking is so ridiculously popular!? is it a contest, a need for acceptance, an addiction or is it just plain interest?....well my friends I guess i'll never know. But! I better get a move on with my day...my Facebook says I have five new updates ;)
