BB's Best of 2009: Olivia Palermo's Street Style

The Budget Babe names Olivia Palermo Best Street Style of 2009.

For New York socialite turned reality TV star Olivia Palermo, the city sidewalks truly serve as runways. Creative, assertive and just a hair shy of being painfully perfect, Olivia gets my vote for Best Street Style of 2009. Whether she's hailing a cab or shopping with friends, Olivia's fashion sense is, in a word, flawless. Sophisticated without being severe, her outfits belie a proper, Uptown girl with a keen eye for making trends her own and an impeccable taste level that's difficult to imitate. I'm content to admire from afar.

I totally agree with your choice! Olivia Palermo is my modern-day fashion icon. May I please have her hand-me-down's?

Too funny, she is rocking socialite handbags (6k Black Birkin) with casual wear. I smell a stylist :-) I always run all my errands around Los Angeles & NYC with a large Birkin tote or a Gucci bag :-) She is clearly in a different reality show than moi.

Love her style even though I'm not exactly sure who she is :o)

haha I too only know of her via fashion blogs, but she does epitomize the whole Upper-East-side style! At least with such classic elements, her style is easier to recreate on a budget.

I agree 120% with BB, I love Olivia's style. She is pretty much a real life gossip girl character to me. Although she has been depicted as a negative character on The City, I think her style is absolutely amazing.

I like her image because it's feminine and at the same time very juvenile.
