Olivia Palermo Explains Why She Doesn't Discuss Politics

Olivia Palermo takes a seat on a grand staircase for the cover of The Edit‘s latest issue.

Here is what the 31-year-old fashionista had to share with the mag:

On still being labeled a reality TV star: “It doesn’t bother me. But a label should probably be somewhat accurate. I do more behind the scenes than people realize.”

On fashion: “It’s about mixing and matching. My aunt has always said, ‘If it’s great, it’s great – and it doesn’t matter how much it costs.’ Fashion is for every woman. You can see if she’s into it: her eyes light up when she talks about it. I love seeing a woman looking amazing walking down the street in New York, when you can see her confidence. I just think: ‘You go, girl!’”

On growing up with a learning disability: “I grew up with a learning disability, so things were always a bit challenging. I had to create my own support system.”

On keeping quiet about politics: “I never discuss politics, because it is so personal, but it’s important for America to make a stand. We are open to every culture in the world.”

    “I never discuss politics, because it is so personal, but it’s important for America to make a stand…”

    I never comment, but this made my blood boil. Olivia, how else are you going to make a stand without discussing these issues?! The country is on shaky grounds, but how are you going to induce change and an openness to cultures when you don’t even use your platform to even instigate change? Another vapid article from a “fashionista.”
