Always dressing to impress, Olivia Palermo cranked up her stylishness for the cover of InStyle UK magazine's October 2012 issue.

The 26-year-old socialite slipped into designer clothing from the likes of Dolce & Gabbana and Christian Dior for the Damon Baker shoot while dishing about everything from not wanting to be compared to Kim Kardashian to her future business plans in the feature article.

Highlights from Miss Palermo's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to InStyle UK!

On not wanting to be compared to Kim Kardashian:
"Whatever she's done, it's worked, but I do things differently. I'm in fashion. I'm in New York. I'm in London. And I'm in the rest of Europe. She's LA… Our careers are very different."

On always looking her best:
"I like walking out of the house feeling fully pulled together. It doesn’t matter if there’s someone standing outside my apartment or not. I couldn’t care less. I like getting dressed for me and not them.”

On her floral themed photo shoot:
"This season you're definitely seeing floral back in trend. Not only have we seen it on the spring runways but we're also seeing it in fall which is nice which is nice and refreshing."
