The star shares her behind-the-scenes prep ahead of her appearance at the 'Finalmente L'Alba' premiere during the 2023 Venice Film Festival
The founder and CCO of the Olivia Palermo Group and her husband Johannes Huebl attended the premiere as guests of Campari.
The couple arrived in Venice the morning of the event from Munich, where they had a brief respite after the F1 Grand Prix in Amsterdam.
As Palermo had been traveling, Giambattista Valli and Tamara Ralph “were both kind enough” to send gowns to the “stunning” Venice Venice Hotel where she was staying, Palermo tells PEOPLE.
See what dress she chose, how she accessorized and more in the exclusive gallery ahead.
The Squad's All Here
"After a quick bite to eat, I got into the glam chair with my long time European makeup artist Sam Tsan, a lead pro artist at Charlotte Tilbury, and hairstylist Philipp Verheyen. I always listen to electronic house music (more melodic than dance though) to keep the vibes energized as its a long night ahead."
"I love a Charlotte Tilbury glam table! I’ve known Charlotte herself forever, and even have my own Hot Lips shade "In Love with Olivia," but tonight was all about their iconic Pillowtalk shade and overall red carpet glam. Sam is so talented, she has been doing my makeup when I am in Europe for probably over a decade now."
One Major Gown
"I decided to go with the pale pink silk crepe off-the-shoulder gown by Tamara Ralph Haute Couture. I loved the silk petal adorned sleeves."
"Tamara Ralph, whose debut show I attended during Paris Couture in July, arranged for a seamstress to meet me and do a proper fitting. My fashion philosophy is no matter whether something is from Zara or Couture, proper tailoring is essential!"
Gem of a Necklace
"No red carpet look is complete without a little glitz! And I am most definitely a jewelry girl. While my new short hair is great for an earring moment, I think the neckline of the dress called for a necklace. The vivid pink of the rubellite in this yellow gold Marco Bicego convertible lariat pendant fit the bill perfectly." [Palermo paired the eye-catching piece with a stack of gold and diamond Marco Bicego rings.]
Ready for Her Close Up
"After I munched on a few macadamia nuts and finished my oat milk cappuccino it was time for final looks!"
Riding in Style
"And off my husband, Johannes Huebl, and I went into the Venetian sunset via water taxi!"
"Keeping the glam safe while en route to the theater. See you on the red carpet!"
Lights, Camera, Action!
"The pink hue really complimented my recent tan (thank you Comporta!). Overall, I just felt really pretty and confident."
