When she's not busy stealing the spotlight with her street style, running her eponymous website, and planning her pending wedding to model fiancé Johannes Huebl, Olivia Palermo is gracing the cover of our June/July issue! And lucky for fans of this stunning bride-to-be, we have an exclusive, behind-the-scenes video and photos from our shoot with the reality-star-turned-fashion-maven.
Olivia rocked a number of stunning wedding dresses (from Marchesa and Monique Lhuillier to Elie Saab) inside our latest issue, but one thing readers won't find in her spread is this bridal tip from the trendsetter: "Dress for your body type," Olivia exclusively tells us. "Really understand proportions, what works for you, you have to feel comfortable."
She also suggests personalizing your wedding day look. "Always [wear] a fabulous shoe, not necessarily a wedding shoe, and great accessories because again that adds your own personal touch, too." Olivia suggests "costume jewelry, art deco clips, and vintage jewelry" for your own big-day statement piece.
Another surprising tidbit? An unexpected visitor showed up to the shoot: her fiancé Johannes! "We're a wonderful team, we work really well together, we're always bouncing ideas off each other, work wise," she says of her six-year relationship. "I think it's important to be a unit and to be supportive of one another."
Here, a few more fun stolen moments behind-the-scenes at Olivia's cover shoot:
Olivia kills it in a frothy blush Monique Lhuillier gown paired with an unexpected oxford.
Johannes wasn't the only surprise guest — Olivia's pup, Mr. Butler, swung by as well. P.S. He'll be in the wedding!
This is just a few of the 50 gowns and 30 pairs of shoes we called in for this shoot.
