Meet Princess Olympia of Greece

Most photography students at Parsons don't have to juggle their homework with a Town & Country cover shoot, but then again, Olympia of Greece, whose grandfather is the former King of Greece, is anything but typical. She grew up in London, where she loved hanging out in the country with her family (she has four brothers) and spending time with friends at the Chelsea Farmers Market. She was bitten by the fashion bug early — her mother, Crown Princess Marie-Chantal, has been a style icon for years -- and her current favorites include Gucci, Alexander Wang, Isabel Marant and Saint Laurent. When she's not at school, she's busy exploring her new city. And what's the perfect New York City night out for this 20-year-old? She says, "I love meeting girlfriends for dinner at Lucien, Indochine or La Esquina (they have the best 'virgin' margaritas -- wink wink), and then going from there."
