Olivia Palermo has opened up about what she”ll be wearing on her wedding day.
The style icon, who got engaged to her German model boyfriend Johannes Huebl on New Year”s Eve, revealed that she wouldn”t walk down the aisle in a “cupcake” style dress.
“First, I”ll consider what the venue is and what the feel is,” Olivia, who graces the cover of the latest issue of Brides, told the magazine. “But no matter where I marry, you”re not going to see me in a huge cupcake dress. As beautiful as they are, they”re just not me.”
Olivia Palermo insisted she wouldn”t be wearing a “cupcake” style dress
Much like the Duchess of Cambridge, nee Kate Middleton, did on her wedding day, Olivia added that she was keen to slip into a second dress for her reception.
“I”m totally into the idea!” she said. “I don”t think it has to be over-the-top, but I think it is fun for the different phases of the wedding.”
As for her bridal look, Olivia added that she would be enlisting the help of her hair and makeup team, but taking the reigns herself was also an option. “Or, I can do it myself — even better!” she said. “I do all my own hair and makeup myself every day.”
Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl have been together since 2008
The 28-year-old beauty and her fiancé, who have been together since 2008, shared their exciting news through a video Johannes posted on Instagram.
The heart-warming clip, which plays Jungle by Emma Louise in the background, shows Olivia walking ahead of her beau through an idyllic beach resort in St. Bart”s before turning round and flashing her new engagement ring. “Happy New Year to everybody and this is how we celebrate it: OP said Y E S,” Johannes captioned it.
“I”m a visual person, so a video was our special touch,” Olivia explained. “And we both love music, so it had to have a cool song.”
“We understand and respect each other, and we make each other better people,” she added. “It also helps that we both work in fashion and can travel together. We get to see the world through each other”s eyes.”
Johannes revealed the exciting news on Instagram
Shortly after the couple started dating, Johannes spoke about the reputation Olivia had after her stint on reality TV show The City, alongside Whitney Port.
“She is completely different than she”s been portrayed on her job,” he has previously said. “Everyone who meets her — especially with me — is surprised about her happiness, and her friendliness and smiles. I think we have a very conservative, old romantic, private approach to our love.”
