Jen Bunney Is Now Married!

There must be something in the California air, or maybe it’s just that theHills cast are all at the marriage stage, as former Hillsie Jen Bunney joined Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port, Heidi Montag, Kristin Cavallari and theCity star Olivia Palermo in getting married.

Jen, who was nicknamed ‘Bunney’ on her stints during Laguna Beach and theHills, was first brought into the picture as one of Lauren’s childhood best friends.  That is, until Bunney broke girl code by hooking up with Lauren’s guy Brody on her birthday!

Lauren and Bunney’s friendship was dunzo, and that probably would’ve been the last viewers would see of her until Heidi and Bunney became friends.

It turns out that their friendship has actually stood the test of time, as Heidi and husband Spencer attended the wedding of Jen Bunney to Taylor Dunphy on Sunday, August 10, held at the Trump National Golf Club in Palos Verdes, California.

Heidi says, “It was the most beautiful wedding in every way. Every detail was perfect, elegant, and classic, just like Jen.  Jen and Taylor are truly soul mates. There are not two people who are more in love and destined for each other. Truly a divine match. I wish them all the blessings in the world and a long happy life together.”

The bride and groom posed for photos with Heidi and Spencer, Heidi wearing a full-length black gown with an embellished high neckline.  She wore her hair down, and flowing over one shoulder.

“Jen has been my best friend for years, we have been through so much together, she deserves her dream wedding and bliss, and she got it last night,” Heidi shared.

Newlywed, New Look

After marrying her long time boyfriend Johannes Huebl in a private ceremony on Saturday, June 28 in Bedford, New York, Olivia Palermo debuted a new look in Paris.  Most of us change our hair before our weddings, but Olivia decided to go from brunette to blonde after she shared her “I do’s”.

In town for Paris Couture Fashion Week, Olivia showed off her lighter locks on Wednesday, July 9, at the Valentino show, which she attended with her new husband.

The new Mrs Huebl looked her front-row best, wearing her new lighter locks straight and parted down the middle, a white shirt tucked into a black and orange a-line skirt.  She accessorized with a fringed green clutch and black and white strappy heels.

Surprise: We Eloped!

While Lauren Conrad was in Mexico for her Bachelorette party and Whitney Port is still planning her wedding, Olivia Palermo surprised us all by getting married in secret!

Olivia married her partner of six and a half years, Johannes Huebl, in a civil ceremony on Saturday, June 28, in Bedford, New York.

The former star of theCity posted the photos above on her website, explaining, “We really wanted to keep this beautiful day very private and special to us and enjoyed the whole day with our family and two friends.  Bedford is such an amazing and romantic countryside.”

Another surprise was how casual Olivia was on her big day.  Hills2City didn’t expect her to be such a bohemian; maybe Olivia and Whitney have more in common than anyone thought?

Olivia wore a cream, long sleeve knit, white shorts and a tulle skirt, all by Carolina Herrera.  She chose cobalt-blue heels by Manolo Blahnik as her ‘something blue’, evoking memories of Carrie Bradshaw in the first Sex & The City movie.

The new Mrs Heubl wore her hair up in a messy ponytail and used natural shades for her makeup.  Olivia shared, “I wanted the make-up to be light and fresh and more focused about the lashes while keeping the eyes clean.  My hair was in an uncontrived ponytail, one of my favorite personal looks.”

There were rumors that Olivia and Johannes has originally planned to be married in St Barts later this year, but moved the date because German-born Johannes faced some visa issues, and might have been forced to leave the US.  The couple have denied the rumors however; Olivia’s spokesperson Barbara Saint-Aime making the statement, “They had always planned to have a small civil wedding in June.  The whole visa thing is not relevant.  They have been together for six and a half years, they got engaged this past January.  They travel so much during the summer, they really don’t have much time to plan things.”

Barbara also stated that Olivia and Johannes planned to have a larger celebration later in the year, so all our designer-wedding-dreams are not totally dashed!

Congratulations Olivia and Johannes Huebl; Hills2City are so happy for you.

Mix & Match For Summer Perfection

Olivia Palermo is a style inspiration to Hills2City year round, so at the start of each new season it’s always a must-do to update our wardrobes with some Olivia-worthy pieces.

On Thursday, April 17, Olivia attended an event for IWC Shauffhausen Timepiece in New York, wearing two contrasting prints. As Lauren Conrad confirmed on Entertainment Tonight, mixing prints is a huge summer trend.

The trick is to go with prints of different sizes; as Olivia demonstrates with a black and white top with large spots and a pair of black and white pants with a tiny print.

Everything else in the outfit should be plain or one solid color, like Olivia’s black blazer.

To find similar pieces to Olivia’s, check out J-Crew for printed pants and Shopbop for cool printed tops.

Celebrate!

Carrying a bunch of colorful balloons and a gift from Tiffany, Hills2City think Olivia Palermo could be the perfect birthday party guest!

Olivia was in Brooklyn on Tuesday, May 20, walking to a friend’s birthday event. She wore a monochrome look of black and white spotted cropped pants, black ballet flats, white top and a black leather jacket.

Ever a fan of high-low dressing, Olivia’s pants are part of Banana Republic’s Marimekko collection, and retail for around $80.

Olivia wore the playsuit with a pair of black opaque tights, studded boots and a striped coat by Boden Holland Park.

 

Whitney’s Wedding Weekend

#RealWeddings

While her fellow reality co-stars Lauren Conrad and Olivia Palermo are also engaged and planning weddings right now, something tells us Whitney Port’s wedding to Tim Rosenman is going to be a unique event.

Whitney and Tim, who are pictured here in New York City late last year are generally happy to stay behind-the-scenes.  Case in point, it’s hard to find many photos of them together!

The former star of theCity spoke to Brides magazine, revealing “We want to make it a full weekend celebration.  It’s just difficult finding a place that’s easy for everyone to get to and that won’t require our guests to spend a lot of money.”

Whitney shared that their main objective for the wedding is, “a fun environment for everyone.”

Tim is happy to let Whitney take the reins when it comes to most of the wedding plans, but he does have one stipulation, the bride-to-be says.  “Like one thing he wants is to make sure that there’s not a strict curfew where the party ends at 10, when it comes to design and décor, he will take a step back.”

So has Whitney found her dream dress yet?  She shares that she’s still looking, explaining, “It’s dependent on where the wedding is and what the dress looks like, but I don’t see myself going super glam.  I think less is more and I don’t want to worry about fixing my hair and makeup all night.”

Miss Perfect

If Hills2City were to name one Young Hollywood or reality star with the perfect wardrobe, it would have to be Olivia Palermo.  She may not have been our favorite on theCity, but in the years since, especially after finding out about the editing of these shows, we’ve really grown to love the real Miss P.

She’s got it all, from the gorgeous fiance in Johannes Huebl, the fantastic fashion career depicted in her blog, not to mention the fact Olivia looks perfect for every occasion.

Glamour magazine share our obsession with the fashion It-Girl, speaking to Olivia about taking the perfect photo, as well as her beauty and fashion tips for Spring:

“I think that it’s most important to feel comfortable and look relaxed,” Palermo said at recent event for Piperlime, where she’s a regular guest editor. “And always consider the lighting.”

G: What are your three must-have shoe styles for spring, and what would you wear with them?

OP: 1. Ballet flats with a crisp button-down

2. Gladiator sandals with a cute sundress.

3. Metallic snakeskin flats with neutral colors.
G. Is there a style of clothing you love now that you never thought you’d like?

OP: Culottes! The proportions are very important. Culottes can be very chic with a pair of heels when the proportions are right.

 

G: If you could buy only one thing this season, what would it be? How would you style it?

OP: A bomber jacket. They have a very youthful, casual, cool feeling about them. I love the tweed ones—they give it a slightly different texture. I wear mine with jeans and flats and a basic white or gray tee or a button-down.

Olivia Shares Her Wedding Style Tips

Olivia Palermo appears on the cover of Brides magazine’s June/July 2014 issue, which is due out on newstands on Tuesday, May6.

The engaged star reveals her personal style inspirations for her wedding to longtime partner Johannes Huebl, advising Brides-To-Be, “Check out the Marchesa, Oscar de la Renta or Carolina Herrera shows online.  And even if your dream dress comes right off the rack, add your own touch. Play with colour. It’s all about the styling!”

From her interview with Brides, Hills2City get the feeling that Olivia may stay away from traditional white for her own wedding gown; she reminds us, “I always like to incorporate pops of color.”

Olivia also spoke about how she and Johannes first met, explaining, “Friends set us up, and it just fell right into place. We’re a great team. We understand and respect each other, and we make each other better people. It also helps that we both work in fashion and can travel the world together. We get to see the world through each other’s eyes.”

Whitney’s Wedding Gown

Bridal Fashion Week just took place in New York; it’s something that follows on from the Ready-To-Wear collections, giving women the chance to see what the new trends will be in bridal fashion.

This season Bridal fashion is particularly exciting to Hills2City, because of the upcoming weddings of Whitney Port and Tim Rosenman, Lauren Conrad and William Tell, and Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl!

Whitney spoke to People magazine this week, giving her take on her favorite bridal looks.  Starting from the Oscar de la Renta design of the eyelet bikini and maxi skirt on the left, Whitney says, “The idea of a beach wedding sounds so beautiful to me, so I loved this one.  I like that it’s very simple, but still delicate, and not the traditional wedding dress.”

The second dress Whitney loved from Bridal Fashion Week was this Vera Wang slip dress. She explains, “I’ve been toying with the idea of wearing a classic slip dress and this look is just simple and comfortable. You don’t have to worry about anything or the fuss of a big ball gown.”

Whitney’s third idea was a different spin on the slip dress, featuring a more risque look. “Another idea I considered was trying the see-through trend, where you can see the bra and panties underneath. I didn’t know if that was okay for a wedding, but this dress shows you can make the look tasteful.  Plus, it features a lot of sequins and beading — I’m a sucker for anything metallic or sequined!”

The Naeem Khan dress to the right is probably the most traditional of Whitney’s picks.  She shares, “I’ve also been toying with the idea of wearing a veil, and this one makes me feel like I want one. It’s such a beautiful, intricate accessory, especially if you have a very simple dress.”
