Between cat-walking down the runway and mingling in the front row, the pressure’s on the industry’s hottest models as they rely on their own fashion senses while strutting down the streets.
When it comes to rocking the season’s trends on the streets of these fashion capitals, my favourite models are unrivalled in their off-duty styles, and here’s how to grab their look!
Model of the moment, Gigi Hadid, might be just 19 years old, but with a family of models and a Baby Guess campaign at a tender age of 2, style and fashion comes more than naturally to Gigi. Kendall Jenner’s BFF heats up the cold wintry streets in a white-hot ensemble of creams, sequin embroidery and metallics.
Supermodel and ex-Victoria’s Secret Angel, Karlie Kloss, owns one of the best catwalks on the runway, and her presence is no less felt on the streets. Karlie leans towards tailored menswear-inspired cuts, flattering her long pins in sleek straight trousers, and emphasizing her lithe body with blazers, coats and capes that skirt her knees.
A beautiful Brazilian Victoria’s Secret Angel and mother of two, Alessandra Ambrosio aces casual-cool best as she kicks back in simple tees, jeans or printed pants, while still looking like a million bucks of high fashion.
What does Joan Smalls and Liu Wen have in common besides their enviable tomboyish off-duty looks? Breathing new life into the modelling world, both of these beautiful models were Estée Lauder’s first spokesmodels of Latina and Asian descent, which helped pave a wider road for an ethnically diverse world of fashion. Love that! Joan Smalls rocks off-duty in leather and sneakers, while Liu Wen amps up on bold colour and graphics that stand her out on the streets.
