Gigi Hadid’s NYFW Street Style

Much like Doutzen Kroes, model Gigi Hadid has also been out and about in New York City amidst the hustle and bustle of New York Fashion Week.

When she hasn’t been walking the runways the likes of Anna Sui, Prabal Gurung, and Jeremy Scott, she’s been spotted flaunting her own unique off-duty style.

First up, she donned a Tamuna Ingorokva Fall 2016 jumpsuit styled with Linda Farrow X Dries Van Noten sunglasses, Sanayi313 star-studded shoes, and one of her favoured Stalvey bags. This look reminded me of Doutzen’s The Row ensemble, as it may have been neutral in colour and simple in silhouette, but Gigi’s punchy styling kept it on the cool side—and far away from lacklustre territory.

While you might first notice the fringed Prada T-shirt and Paige Hoxton tight leather pants, there’s no doubt your gaze will quickly revert to the platform sneakers that could have easily been found in Lady Gaga’s closet. The same Linda Farrow X Dries Van Noten shades completed this ensemble that would have looked just as good with those Sanayi313 starry mules.

Introducing a bit of colour to the equation, Gigi brightened up her outlook in a bubblegum-pink 3.1 Phillip Lim sweater styled with a pair of girly embellished, cropped denim and Christian Louboutin ‘Boudiva’ glitter and velvet block heel mules. While the furry footwear may raise an eyebrow or two, I love how they reflected the playful personality that was packed into this look.

Olivia Culpo in head-to-toe Tod’s during NYFW

Olivia Culpo has been doing the rounds during New York Fashion Week, changing several times a day.

Yesterday (September 11), she hit the streets of Manhattan wearing a full Tod’s Fall 2017 runway leather look, which for first time had me feeling a touch of OC fatigue.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the look and her total commitment to bringing us everything from high end to affordable fashion, but at the same time this look feels a tad contrived.

As a stylist friend of my would call this dressing, not styling.

I get no sense of her style here.

I love street style fashion during Fashion Week because you get to see looks pulled together in an inspiring way, this just tells me she had free reign in the Tod’s showroom.

Ciara In Galia Lahav Couture – Out In New York City

Ciara made the sidewalks of New York City her personal runway while out and about over the weekend.

Some may oppose the exaggerated proportions of this Galia Lahav Fall 2017 Couture coat dress, but I found it altogether intriguing, as the look balanced a fanciful, feminine spirit with plenty of leather-infused edge.

Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Jeannine’ booties, with their statement red ribbons, added another layer of chic boldness, with a Giuseppe Zanotti matching clutch rounding out the look.

Rihanna In Y/Project – Out In New York

The Fenty Puma By Rihanna fashion show during New York Fashion Week was on Sunday (September 10), so Rihanna has been out and about in NYC making the rounds in her own head-turning way.

Her off-duty affinity for oversized menswear has not waned with her latest street-style looks from Y/Project’s Spring 2018 Menswear collection.

Wearing the boxy blazer over ripped jeans was a trend-forward way to rock the disparate pieces, with Olgana Paris ‘Celeste’ mink fur mule sandals ending it on a playful, very Ri Ri note.

Her second look featured her own version of a Canadian tuxedo with this all-denim approach. There was a lot of fabric happening between the gigantic shirt, long belt, and comically slouched trousers.

All that to say, the first look was by and far my favourite for its more polished sensibility, despite the distressed denim.

What about you?

Gigi Hadid keeps the pajamas alive in MARCH11

It’s fashion week, and while celebs are doing the most to stand out, Gigi Hadid is sticking to her favoured style: pajama-inspired separates.

As someone who’s been a fan of this trend; when done right, I have to say again I’m in love with this MARCH11 bell bottoms and a coordinating jacket slinky look.

From the bumblegum hue, to the tone-on-tone graphics the model certainly made a statement.

I especially love how she amped up the jewel-tones by styling her look with emerald Olgana Paris ‘L’Amazone’ jeweled satin heel and a matching bag.

Love it or leave it?

Naomie Harris In Giamba – STK London

Naomie Harris celebrated her 41st birthday with family and friends at party held at STK London on Wednesday (September 6).

I love her locs hairstyle which she’s been sporting all summer.

I had originally thought it was because she was filming the next instalment of a new ‘ Pirates of the Caribbean’ film, but as that doesn’t appear to be on the cards, I guess she wanted to get in touch with her Jamaican, Trinidadian roots.

Her tiger-print party dress hailed from Giamba’s Resort 2017 collection.

I love how feminine the dress is with its delicate details, yet it possesses plenty of attitude via the faux black harness.

Adding a bohemian touch via the fringed wrap and fringed bag, the look was completed with Freda Salvador Wit D’Orsay Oxfords.

If you’re thinking, “Who’s worn this look before?”

Well, it was Naomie herself. She wore this same dress to the ‘Collateral Beauty’ London photocall back in December.

Selena Gomez Rocks Rouje out in New York City

Selena Gomez was spotted out in New York City on Tuesday (September 5).

Her Rouje frock had a darling and effortless ladylike femininity.

So, my question was, why pair the dress with an oversized, granny sweater?

The Louis Vuitton bright-white sneakers will likely raise an eyebrow or two, too, for their somewhat misplaced clunky, athletic spirit.

Naturally, she carried a red Coach x Selena ‘Grace’ handbag, with Roberi & Fraud sunnies rounding out the off-duty look.
