She’s launched a jewelry collection with Roberto Freymann, was the face of the Mediterraneo collection for Carrera y Carrera, a guest editor for Piperlime.com, and even appeared as a guest judge on Project Runway. Now you can find her running her own fashion site, www.oliviapalermo.com featuring stories on fashion, beauty and accessories, even giving fans the chance to shop her closet.
