Now, we don't really know Olivia Palermo. Maybe she's annoying. Maybe she stole your boyfriend. Maybe she's a rare gem who's been clawed and scratched at by the queen bees of the giant high-school cafeteria that is the New York social scene. We don't care, really.
Because at the end of the day, she had the stones to show up at an event -- the Dressed to Kilt fashion show -- that was chock full of the e-mail's recipients and the people who no doubt gobbled up every written word about her supposed ignominy, and she didn't flinch.
Here's the secret dreamworld of Olivia Palermo:
Who's the daddy?
Olivia's mother is an interior decorator
and her father is a real-estate developer.
Where does the money come from?
Family money meant that Olivia was a shoo-in
to the mercenary world of Manhattan society.
Short-lived reign as New York's new It-girl,
now gets the sympathy vote
for having been the subject of so much bitching.
Key look: Italian-American princess.
Although Olivia Palermo is one of NYC's most photographed and most talked-about citizens as of late, super style web site Style.com failed to add her on the "people that matters" list. Oops, bad news for her...
