By now, many of us have established that despite the fact that The City is all kinds of fake, we will keep tuning in for the fabulous fashion and glorious shots of my favorite city on earth. And, let's be honest here. Who doesn't love a little dose of drama, even if it is staged? We don't hold that against Gossip Girl, do we? After her fall from grace, Olivia Palermo, Whitney's co-worker at Diane Von Furstenberg decided to become an actress. Yes, an actress, which given the over-the-top fakeness of the show, sounds about right. Her goal was to become a household name and with all of the sudden interest in her, I'd say she's on her way.

While watching the new episode on Monday night, I couldn't help but notice some of the design elements, like Whitney's hideous sofas and Olivia's vintage Hermès tray. I did a little research and found some great pictures of Olivia's Tribeca apartment to share with you via The New York Post's Page Six and Gotham Magazine. In the Page Six interview, she is asked if she is in fact going to participate in The City to which she answers "No, I want to be a serious actress". All hatin' aside, she is absolutely gorgeous and I'm sure she is a nice girl. If nothing else, she has a pretty sweet apartment.

Olivia's 63 square foot closet, complete with zebra rug and packed to the gills with amazing clothes, was designed using an ELFA system from The Container Store.

Olivia received this art deco chair as a housewarming gift from her aunt. Her apartment, which is housed in a newly-built building features floor to ceiling windows and enviable views of the city.

The apartment, designed by Olivia and her mother, Lyn Hutchings, a partner at the interior design firm, Hutchings-Lyle, was inspired by Mariah Carey's Manhattan penthouse and features a "1960s look with a classic old Hollywood feel". The convertible sofa is from Jennifer Convertibles and the baby blue side table is from Gracious Home. The Carlyle ­Custom ­Convertible white leather coffee table with nailhead trim plays host to the star of the room, a vintage Hermès tray found in The Hamptons.
