Well, the title says it all... Olivia Palermo is officially my new style crush. Having seen her looking polished to perfection in numerous magazines over the past few months and lusting after her daily outfits as documented on the Vogue website's 'Today I'm Wearing' section (see below for link) I feel it's time to devote a blog solely to the wonder that is her wardrobe.
Twenty-four years of age and one of the stars of 'The City', Ms Palermo dresses less like typical American reality television stars (Paris Hilton anyone?) and more like our various home-grown stylistas. Never one to go for the scruffy look, her hair is always elegantly styled in sleek curls or straight lengths, makeup natural but highlighting her best features and always accessorised to perfection (well, given her job as US Elle's Accessories Editor, she ought to be!).
I've trawled through the Internet to bring you some of her best looks and suggested some items to purchase on the high street (well, she does love Topshop after all) to get the look... job at Elle sold separately.

Never underestimate the power of tights and mega heels with a pair of tailored shorts:
Perfect for spring in a white blouse and skirt, accessorised with a statement necklace:
A simple hairstyle keeps a high glamour maxi from looking too over the top:
