Olivia Palermo took time out last week to give back to her community and tackle most people's worst DIY nightmare – assembling flat-pack furniture.

The stunning 'The City' star joined up with other celebrities including Sean Kingston and non-profit organisation New Yorkers for Children to help to transform two rooms at a facility for children entering into foster care in New York City.

The makeover is a part of the IKEA Life Improvement Project, which helps people to build better lives at home and to improve the lives of others in their communities.

I think it's safe to say that no-one has ever looked, nor should anyone ever look this good while grappling with self-assembly instructions.
