Who is the Pinterest Princess?

I can’t tell you how many Pinterest pins I’ve come across featuring the same girl. She’s always standing like she doesn’t notice she’s being photographed, or if she does- she doesn’t care. And she’s always wearing super chic outfits- so many so that I wonder how many times a day she has to change to be photographed so many times!

She seems to be the perfect Pinterest pin-up girl. The comments on the pins always say something like, “Nothing less than perfect,” “Classic,” or the pin comment I hate the most.. “those shoes.” You WHAT those shoes? Give me an adjective please!

I finally figured who this girl is… Under a Pinterest board called, “Style Icons,” I found about a hundred pins featuring this woman… and her name is…. Olivia Palermo!

Wiki and IMDB say she’s an,”American socialite and ‘it’ Girl.” (Please note, Girl is capital- like God.) She was apparently on the little-watched Laguna Beach spinoff- The City. Perhaps that’s why I didn’t recognize her? But then why is she still plastered all over Pinterest if her TV fame ended in 2010? (Also- apparently she decided to be in the show to “familiarize herself with acting.”)

She’s also apparently a Wilhelmina Model, but the only modeling I can remember seeing her in is on Pinterest… She’s been a judge on Project Runway and different versions of America’s Top Model. But really, how did she get so famous?

A recent Fashion Telegraph article asks the same question in an article that says, “Though Palermo’s style star keeps ascending, it’s hard to remember when the American became a regular resident on our best-dressed lists. A little digging reveals that it was her role in reality show The City, which documented the personal and professional lives of Whitney Port and other fashion-conscious It-girls, that caused the style paparazzi to linger close to her.”

I guess it’s her perfectly placed shiny hair and closet that’s probably the size of my apartment that’s made her so famous? I can admire anybody who can consistently look so put together. I mean, I’ve started using gobs of dry shampoo just because my blow dryer is in a hard to reach place and I don’t want to deal with it in the morning! To blow dry your hair perfectly and always wear Pinnable outfits? Good for you Olivia!

Ah HA here it is— she has a blog. But apparently doesn’t write for it? Well who would have time to write for a blog if you’re the all-hailing Queen of Pinterest?

Dear Olivia- please snap some pics of your closet!
