In 2006 Olivia Palermo emerged on the society circuit, attending benefits and sitting front row at Bryant Park, earning her the scorn of the now-defunct Socialite Rank and creating a tizzy among the Park Avenue set. But like a phoenix emerging from her scattered social ashes, Palermo went on to work at Elle and DVF while playing Whitney Port’s fashion frenemy on MTV’s The City. And despite her early struggles, she hasn’t retired her socialite crown just yet. Still out and about as ever, the former reality star continues to get noticed at Fashion Week — her polished aesthetic remains intact season after season. Now running a personal-style blog, Palermo’s going strong as a street-style all star and sitting front row. See her best furry looks, menswear-inspired outfits, and more throughout the years in our slideshow below.
