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.”
