Olivia Palermo, Outside Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti

Olivia Palermo Alberta Ferretti
Yeah, so I took this picture of Olivia Palermo outside Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti at the Roseland Ballroom this past New York Fashion Week in February. I recognized her from street style blogs, so I followed suit with the rest of the photographers and took her picture. I was not, however,super clear about why I was taking her picture, or even what it is that she is famous for. I googled her later, but I'm still not 100% on that one. Reality show blah blah blah, socialite blah blah blah. It doesn't really matter. Once we all agree that someone's picture is worth taking, they're famous. End of story. 

I like her look, in any case, though it's not really the sort of look I typically shoot. It's more fashion than street style, if you ask me. But more importantly, I like this picture. It's got lovely bokeh and a pronounced contrast between background and foreground. I also like the mysterious, blurry figures approaching the camera. They lend the image a slightly ominous feel. It makes me nostalgic for my 85mm lens. I think I'll go out on the streets of Philly and shoot with it tomorrow. I'm finally home in Philly, after three weeks away on the West Coast. 


  1. Olivia is much like Paris Hilton or Kim K. where is known for a whole lot of nothing. But I do love her impeccable style. Hope you are well. -Anh

    1. That's kind of what I was thinking @Anh. Famous for being famous. But, I agree, she's got good style. Hope you're well too.
