Whilst attending the Couple of the Year 2011 event in Hamburg last week, Olivia Palermo and her boyfriend Johannes Huebl looked perfectly polished collecting their International Couple of the Year awards, with Olivia going all out on her red carpet choice with a white embellished SS11 Marchesa dress.

We’ve spied the dress before on a young Elle Fanning, but we love Olivia’s styling of the delicate beaded chiffon dress with dramatic red satin heels and silver embellished clutch.

And luckily, you too can look just as wow-worthy as Ms. Palermo with a little help from our step-by-step style guide – it’s guaranteed to get you ahead of the game in the style stakes this summer.
