Olivia Palermo Reveals Her Childhood Struggle with a Learning Disability

Olivia Palermo Reveals Her Childhood Struggle with a Learning Disability

Olivia Palermo is gorgeous on the cover of Cosmopolitan UK magazine’s June 2017 issue, on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 31-year-old socialite had to share with the mag:

On being labeled an “it” girl: “I’m not opposed to it. I have nothing to say other than we all evolve. I wear many hats these days!”

On childhood struggles: “You know, everything was a bit harder for me because I grew up with a learning disability. I don’t want to go into details but… what was wonderful is that people can be very creative in different ways. And we [she refers to her childhood friend Jonathan Simkhai, a designer, to whom she was close to at school] really strived to be creative and that really evolved as we got older… and not necessarily in school.”

On her fashion week schedule: “Honestly, my schedule is so tight. I have a show on the hour every hour, and appointments. So my priority is the designers and the collections. Of course, it’s nice to change once in a while, and support the designers, if you can, by changing, but there’s not always enough time in the day.”

The full interview appears in the June 2017 issue of Cosmopolitan, on sale now!
