Olivia Palermo loves wearing clothes by new designers.

The 25-year-old beauty - who rose to fame on reality TV show 'The City' - likes the paparazzi as it gives her the chance to be a representative for undiscovered talent on The Fashion scene.

She said: "Here's the upside. I get to wear pieces by talented young designers, which is not only great for me but means the clothes get showcased to a broad audience.

"Believe it or not, I like the paps - especially the ones based in New York who are actually nice.

"I always pose for a picture when asked, and I admit it's fun to have young girls in London, Tokyo, Moscow - wherever I am - wanting to have their photograph taken with me."

Olivia - who has been dating model Johannes Huebl since 2008 - also loves fashion shoots because she feels like a "chameleon" on set.

She revealed to British Vogue: "I love the modelling opportunities; the way the camera catches ever chameleon-like change as you slip in and out of character on a shoot - a classic Audrey Hepburn one minute, a vamp the next. It's liberating to step outside of yourself."
