Fash Off - Olivia vs Nicole


Though their personalities are worlds apart, there's no denying that Nicole Richie and Olivia Palermo know their fashion. While one dominates the streets of New York the other rules LA. Inspired by their stunning 2012 looks, I decided another round of Fash Off was in order. I know my pick, but who's style do you prefer? Olivia's layered New York editorial look or Nicole's wearable Cali chic style?  







The countdown has officially begun. With a slew of last minute decisions left to be made, Justin and I have been enjoying the last two days in Destin, Florida filled with cake tastings and food trials. In the midst of the chaos, I wanted to share a few pictures from our day of adventures. xo

  1. They're both beautiful ladies with lots of style, but I would still pick Nicole over Olivia. Nicole's style is something I cling on to when dressing up :)

  3. They are both beautiful and have great style, but I would have to go with Nicole Richie, just because I can relate to her style more since it's not as out there as Olivia Palermo's.

  4. Olivia is definitely my favourite. They both look amazing in all of these pictures but I have fallen in love with Olivia's style ever since I first saw that picture of her in the floral pants.....love...

  10. They both have great style, but for me Olivia definitely stands out more. She always looks perfect from head to toe. With Nicole it depends a bit on the occasion

  22. hard to pick they both pull off these looks so well. I'm going to go with a tie ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm going to say Nicole. She has style that the everyday woman, living in a suburban town could wear without getting lauged at. Olivia's style is more out there.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hmmm, I like them both! I like Olivia's style a lot because she always looks very put together. Not that Nicole doesn't, but Nicole pulls off a boho vibe a little better I think.

  25. Oh man, this is going to be really hard. I love both of their styles so much. Especially Olivia's attention to detail, quality, and confidence while donning each piece but I have to go with Nicole because he style is more everyday friendly. Olivia's style is stunning but it's tailored to her lifestyle in high fashion. Nicole on the other hand represents a chic mother and business woman.

  26. If it was a contest I'd have to say Nicole hands down!! While Olivia has great style, I just feel like she always has a stank/unhappy look on her face. And what she has to be unhappy about God only knows!! Nicole has style AND a smile...winner!

  28. Olliiiivviiiiiaaaaa! i love her style, and she is sooooo gorgeous

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would say my style would be more similar to Olivia's! She always looks so polished and put together. Although, Nicole always looks stunning as well. Tough decision!

  30. Oohh, this is a toughie! I love a lot of Olivia's looks but towards the end I was liking Nicole's styles more and more!! So...while I'm an East Coast girl, I gotta go with Ms Richie :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love them both... but Olivia for style and Nicole for personality!

  32. Nicole Richie - although Olivia has great style, Nicole's seems effortless and definitely more attainable.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Nicole for sure!! Except for Olivia's fur vest... THAT, I will take. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Such a tough one! I think I'm leaning more towards Nicole though.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Olivia - minus that fur trap thing in the last pic. Yikes.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh Gosh! they are both beautiful, stylish ladies an each represent different ends of a spectrum. Living in MN I guess I'm somewhat in the middle and have trouble deciding for one. I might pick Olivia over Nicole but I guess I go back and forth :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Nicole always looks chic, but I am in love with Olivia's style! Her mixing of prints, patterns and layering is what I love about her style!

    ReplyDelete
  38. That is sooo hard! But I think I like Olivias style a bit more!

  41. ooooo is your wedding at the Grand? I love going to Harbor Walk there! Can't wait to see your wedding pics!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have always loved Nicole! And I personally can not stand Olivia after watching The City. UGH! I think Nicole is a lot more versitile and has her own vision of what she loves and wears. Olivia to me looks like so many others and not unique.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love Nicole, she has amazing style!

  44. This is tough because depending on what they wear I could go with either one. Love their style so much. For this I would have to go with Nicole Richie =)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I am rolling with my girl Nicole except I am taking taking with me the one outfit of Olivia's where she is wearing the flared jeans and fur vest I gotta have that!! xo

    ReplyDelete
  46. Eventhough I don't really like Olivia I have to admit that she knows fashion inside out!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Nicole wins every time. I really can't stand Olivia. I agree with the person above, and it pains me to say it, she does know fashion!

  50. You know, I don't know...it depends on the look for me. Sometimes I think Olivia's style is a little stagnant, and sometimes I think Nicole just goes overboard. So I couldn't pick :) Loooove Nicole's red pants though!

  57. first off, soooo excited for you!!! your wedding is going to be amazing!! cant wait! :)

    okay second... as much as i hated her on the city (i mean c'mon, she's just a crazy bitch) olivia has an amazing sense of style and ALWAYS looks put together. lately, nicole richie has been looking like a hot mess to me. her hair doesnt seem to be looking great... idk.... gotta give it to olivia!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm more of a NY gal but Nicole's outfit are so pretty,chic, simple and really stand out to me.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Close but I think I have to go with Nicole!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Wow! This Fash Off has been difficult! I would choose Nicole though, because her style yet glam seems really comfortable. I think she's so multi-faceted with the boho looks, to the classy, and to the Cali style.

  61. Put me in a bind, why don't you?
    haha, oh goodness. I love both their styles, that's my issue! Sometimes, Cali cool just sounds better than New York elegant, and sometimes, it's a total flip. Just off the particular outfits you've culled out from all the things they've been photographed in, I think I have to go with Olivia. It's by a very slim margin that she wins this for me, though, and at least half the reason Nicole didn't come out on top was her top knots. As a girl with hair shorter than hers, I know perfectly well that it's not too hard to get a good looking bun, even with short hair, without it looking like that. The buns she's wearing in those pictures look like what I see the girls who run track at my school wearing, and frankly, this particular style of bun is better suited for the track than heels and otherwise lovely outfits. I think using some bobby pins would do her buns a world of wonder, and probably raise her style enough to beat out Olivia - since it IS much more wearable.

    Congratulations on being so close to your wedding!

    xoxo

  62. I may be slight biased living in New York but I saw Olivia Polermo all the way! Both are quite fashionable yes, however there is hardly ever a time when I don't find myself head over heels for Olivia's looks.

  65. Olivia! Always chic, always flawless!
    Nicole has had some nice outfits recently, but for me, she is no match to Olivia's sense of style!

    ReplyDelete

  67. Love the style of Olivia all though it's not really my style. Nicole style is sometimes amazing and sometimes a fail.

  68. Nicole RIchie has done a total 180 in her style since the Paris Hilton buddy days. She has refined her style into the ultimate in glamour. I am so in love with the black belted skirt , black satin heels, and white fitted blouse. I am also loving how she has branded herself with her fabulous Harlow vintage inspired line.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I can relate to Nicole more, she can be very laidback but sophisticated. Love her and truly my icon!

  71. I have a pinboard totally dedicated to Olivia Palermo. She is gorgeous, elegant and completely classy in everything she choose, although I adore Nicole's style too. So...Olivia for me.

  72. I love Olivia's style.
    I really like Nicole's when she's polished...her bohemian look can look too over thought to me. Also, I truly cannot get over her Simple Life run. She was so trashy...can't get past it!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I can't choose between them! I love them both!

  74. Olivia Palermo has to be the most put-together individual I have ever seen...she always looks insanely chic and I could never style an outfit the way she does (how does she think to put the pieces together that she does?!)
    HOWEVER, my personal style is a little more bohemian (I think due to my being born in Cali) so I relate to Nicole's fashion a little more.
    Amazing and inspiration fashion icons of today though! Good luck in the remainder of your wedding preparations pretty! :)
