Fashion icon and bride-to-be Olivia Palermo has yet another title to add to her resumé: Brides' cover girl. We're so obsessed with our upcoming June/July issue starring Olivia that we couldn't resist sharing a few shots of the trendsetter before the magazine hits newsstands nationwide on May 6.

On the cover, Olivia stuns in a strapless silk-mesh-organza wedding dress by Marchesa, paired with a wool-crepe Marcelo Giacobbe jacket. A lush, white bouquet, a perfectly-tousled ponytail, and her signature red nail polish act as the finishing touches.

Olivia, who's been engaged to German model and photographer Johannes Huebl since January, is keeping mum about what exactly she'll wear down the aisle, but she is sharing some tips on how to channel her chic style for your own wedding.

"Check out the Marchesa, Oscar de la Renta, or Carolina Herrera shows online," Olivia tells us. "And even if your dream dress comes right off the rack, add your own touch. Play with color. It's all about the styling!"

Inside our new issue, Olivia dons even more gorgeous gowns including the one pictured above: a lace fit-and-flare wedding dress with sheer ruffle skirt and long sleeves from Elie Saab. Another one of the stand out looks? The ruffled blush tulle Monique Lhuillier ball gown offset with a Brooks Brothers Oxford shirt (below).

The star, who runs her own e-commerce site, also drops a hint that a head-to-toe white wedding look might not be in her future. "I always like to incorporate pops of color," Olivia notes.

Olivia opens up about her handsome fiancé (who makes an adorable cameo in our photo shoot!), too. "Friends set us up, and it just fell right into place. We're a great team." Olivia says. "We understand and respect each other, and we make each other better people. It also helps that we both work in fashion and can travel the world together. We get to see the world through each other's eyes."

For more of our cover story with Olivia, be sure to pick up the new issue of Brides available nationwide on May 6!
