What do you get when you pair one of the best-dressed New Yorkers with an incredibly handsome German model? Perfection, that’s what.
Olivia Palermo and husband Johannes Huebl cover Flare magazine’s “Love & Lust” issue, and love has never looked this good. The couple said their “I dos” back in July, and being the fashionista that she is, Olivia didn’t tie the knot in a conventional wedding dress. Instead, it was a Carolina Herrera ensemble of a sweater and shorts beneath a tulle skirt.
Inside, photographer Jason Kim captures the chemistry between the New York City socialite and her hubby, wearing designers like Jil Sander, Oscar de la Renta, and Chanel. Olivia also talks transitioning from a reality TV star to the rank of style elite. Read on for more.
On finding her perfect wedding outfit:
“I’m very much a fashion person,” she laughs. “It was like going to any other market appointment and finding something I like.”
If she would ever do the “career-launching TV star thing again:”
“No, no, I wouldn’t,” she says, shaking her head emphatically, calling it “a learning experience I got out of the way early.” But what the reality-watching public didn’t catch was an eager then-22-year-old who took advantage of her made-for-TV job at designer Diane Von Furstenberg’s PR headquarters. “Once the cameras were gone and I could go home, I’d stay and sit in on global marketing meetings and really build my education,” she says. “I asked if I could join out of curiosity and being young and wanting to learn.”
