The Surprising Piece That Olivia Palermo Pulled Off for Summer

Sartorially speaking, Olivia Palermo has been knocking it out of the park while in Paris for Couture Fashion Week. We repeatedly look forward to seeing what she'll wear, because there's always an element of surprise. For example, just this week she paired a fancy lace Elie Saab gown with flat loafers to effortlessly stylish results.

For Palermo's latest appearance, at the black-tie The Art of Giving Love Ball last night, she wore the season's most feminine trend: Ballerina. Palermo, of course, added a cool edge to the look by donning all-dark pieces à la Black Swan, including a ballerina-inspired tulle dress topped off with a moto jacket draped over her shoulders. What surprised us the most about the outfit, though was her choice of black stockings. While they're not something you often see in July, they added to the prima ballerina theme and made her ankle-tie heels resemble pointe shoes. The results were at once charming and edgy.
