Olivia Palermo, our June/July cover girl, is a fashion icon, e-commerce entrepreneur, and one of the most stunning brides-to-be ever. Need proof? Just check out our new issue (on newsstands now!) to see the star model gorgeous wedding dresses — from Marchesa, Elie Saab, Monique Lhuillier, and more — like a pro.
Luckily, we're giving you an exclusive first look at the shoot with a few outtakes you won't see anywhere else.
Along with modeling aisle-ready designs, Olivia dropped some hints about her own wedding-day look. She reveals she's open to pulling a Kate Middleton and slipping into a second dress for her reception. "I'm totally into the idea!" she exclusively tells Brides. "I don't think it has to be over-the-top, but I think it is fun for the different phases of the wedding."
As for her big-day beauty look, she'll count on one of her close confidantes to ensure she looks as fresh-faced and elegant as she does on our cover. "I have a small list of people I work with, and they do an amazing job, so I'm sure one of them will help me," the star says.
There's also one other person that can take the reigns in the makeup chair if necessary. "Or, I can do it myself — even better! I do all my own hair and make up myself every day." She can make herself look that gorgeous on her own? Unreal!
