Steal Olivia Palermo's Wedding Dress Style

09 Jul 2015

She's a style icon the world over, so when Olivia Palermo became a bride - marrying model Johannes Huebl in a private civil ceremony in Before, New York - the fashion world waited on tenterhooks to see what she would wear. And in a style true to her bohemian look, she chose a two-piece bridal look that's influenced brides since.

She chose a Carolina Herrera cashmere sweater with a sheer skirt, worn over a pair of tailored shorts - yes, shorts! She also wore Sex in the City famous blue Manolo Blahnik heeled pumps, earrings by Alexandra Mor, and a simple bracelet she bought in India.

Her makeup and accessories were minimal, her ponytail messy, but the over-all look was divine. So here's how you can steal Olivia Palermo's wedding day style.
