Olivia Palermo in ASOS August 2010

Sneak Peek to the August 2010 issue of ASOS magazine starring cover girl Olivia Palermo, the 24-year-old star of MTV’s The City.

Inside her stylish world and wardrobe. The new queen of street style. No one does the New York look quite like Olivia Palermo. But while on The City there’s a dark side to her fashion dealings, Francesca Babb discovers you shouldn’t believe everything you see on television… (shot in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NYC)

“It’s unfortunate (of the reputation that the TV show has given her), but I think that people understand what they see on that show is not who I am. It’s not accurate. I’m funny, I’m enthusiastic and I’m not a negative person. I always try and look for the good in things.”

VOGUE Age Issue

Each August, VOGUE profiles spectacular women at every age—from their 20s to their 80s—for our annual Age issue. This year is about transformation: A new career? A new love? A new direction? Why not?

As Anna Wintour notes in her Letter from the Editor, “Anyone’s life can turn on a dime; and yet this seems especially true for women, who invariably inhabit numerous roles at the same time.”

Marta Walsh: When did your fascination with fashion and style begin?
Erin Kaplan: Honestly, it wasn’t until I started working at ELLE that I really became interested in fashion. I grew up with three brothers so there definitely wasn’t a lot of fashion-talk around the house. However, I have always been interested (obsessed really) with magazines and publishing…

Who is this Snooki girl and do we care? Snooki, star of MTV’s reality series Jersey Shore managed to get all our attention and I’m not sure why.

Olivia Palermo Goes Darker Hair

MTV’s The City star Olivia Palermo was spotted recently with darker hair color (see right image below)! What happened to Olivia’s Jennifer Aniston-esqe or Gisele-esqe hair color, I wonder. Maybe  her new light brown hair is something to do with fall:) 

Anyone is missing Olivia Palermo’s honey blonde hair color?

Few months ago I interviewed for Beauty Interviews the multi-talented host, actress and singer Layla Kayleigh from the hit MTV series “America’s Best Dance Crew” with Randy Jackson (airs Thursdays at 10pm ET/PT).

In the interview, Layla Kayleigh talks to me about some of her best kept beauty secrets, the two women celebrities she finds most beautiful, her favorite way to relax, and why does she think Randy Jackson the executive producer of “America’s Best Dance Crew” on MTV is so amazing.

I keep my hair beautiful thanks to…
“Enjoy” is a line that I absolutely love because it’s Sulphate-free, which is awesome- I’m a huge fan. Kerastase is also fantastic, they have this amazing hair oil that works wonders and doesn’t make your hair greasy (especially for people with ethnic or coarse hair like myself).
