In the May 4 episode of “The City,” Olivia Palermo criticized Whitney Port‘s fashion line, Whitney Eve, as being “all-over-the-place.” She decided not to include it in any Elle.com features. Lucky for Whitney, Erin Kaplan went right over Olivia’s head to Joe Zee to make sure Whitney got a spot in a RueLaLa feature on young designers.
Whitney has been cultivating her designing skills since her early days of making exaggerated faces at Lauren Conrad while they interned at Teen Vogue. Now, she’s got Kelly Cutrone and People’s Revolution behind her. We were sure that Cutrone wouldn’t get behind an undeserving collection, so we decided to check out the clothes for ourselves instead of taking Olivia’s word for it.
We love the oversized blazers and cut-out dresses, but we’re not sure we can get behind the brightly patterned shorts or the giant lace vest. Everything’s very pricy, but Port is having a sale in honor of “The City” on her site – you can check out the details on her Twitter account. In the meantime, check out her designs below and vote in our poll!
