The reason I'm comparing her to these two celebs is because both Alba and Bieber have worn westward Leaning sunglasses but nothing drove the sales up like Palermo when she began wearing the brand in 2012.
No matter what anyones personal opinion is of Palermo, (she got a fair amount of slack for the way she came across in reality show 'The City') no one can deny she is one stylish lady. She was my look of the week at the Westward Leaning event last week as she unveiled her collaboration with the brand.
Anything Palermo wears, instantly increases sales, so it made perfect sense for her to collaborate with the brands sunglasses
Palermo has long been an advocate of emerging brands and she has worn these sunnies since the company's launch two years ago which has helped establish them as one of the go to designers for sunglasses.
Of their collaboration with Palermo, Westward Leaning said, " We are thrilled to present these eight exclusive models designed in collaboration with Olivia, one of our earliest and most consistent supporters. In recognition of Olivia’s exceptional style, honed by years of travel, we’ve named each of the eight models after some of her favorite places around the world, from Dumbo and Berlin to Saint Germain and Palm Beach."
Palermo says of the collection “Westward Leaning sunglasses are effortlessly chic and flattering to just about any ensemble, which has made this collaboration a dream.” For our part, we at Westward Leaning couldn’t have asked for a more loyal or stylish informal brand ambassador, and it has been an honor to collaborate with her on this specific collection."
