Oh man, it really is incredible how consistently awesome Olivia Palermo looks (remember how well turned out she was in this shopping vid?). Check out this exclusive Stylecaster editorial entitled, “Limelight,” with the former star of The City ’cause it showcases an aspect of her aesthetic that we absolutely adore–the fact that she looks so much like a 1970s starlet. Add to that a pensive, folksy, fashion element, a devastatingly beautiful acoustic guitar, textured neutrals, and BANGS and we’re beyond sold. But, whaaaa there’s an interview by some lovely person by the name of Kerry Pieri, you say? Awesome. We’ve snippeted them for you.

On her personal style:
My taste has evolved over the years, but I have always stayed true to timeless classic with a modern edge. And, of course for me it’s all about accessorizing!

Where she likes to go on holiday:
I love to travel and open my eyes to all the different forms of beauty in the world. I don’t fancy staying in the same place for very long. A few of my favorite destinations are the Maldives, St Barth’s, and anywhere with a significant amount of snow to go skiing.

Favorite designers:
DVF, Giambattista Valli, Marchesa.

Fashion icons:
I’m obsessed with Old Hollywood glamour. Most of my fashion icons are from that time period: Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Carey Grant, Humphrey Bogart.

Boyfriend and dog’s name (respectively):
Johannes and Mr. Butler.
