A young social fixture, Olivia Palermo's aggressive attempts to scale the social ladder landed her on the cover of New York magazine in May 2007. More recently, she's become a reality TV staple thanks to her role alongside Whitney Port in MTV's The City.
The daughter of a Connecticut real estate developer named Douglas Palermo, Olivia moved to New York to attend the New School. Attending class, though, soon took a backseat to making a splash on the social scene and she quickly finagled her way on to the society "It" list with some help from a publicist and some heavy-hitter friends, like childhood buddy Byrdie Bell. Palermo's social maneuvering finally paid off when she was cast in The Hills spinoff The City, in which she and Whitney Port appear to be "working" in the PR department at Diane Von Furstenberg.
For the most part her sense of style is truly impeccable. Catch her and the rest of the girls on the second season of the "The City" which premieres on Tuesday, September 29th!
