Gigi Hadid’s Off Duty Style


When Gigi Hadid isn’t strutting the runway, the model is still rocking the ultimate ‘it’ girl style—dripping in nonchalant coolness that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Here, three of her latest off-duty looks.

Look 1: Funky took a fashionable turn in this Blumarine Pre-Fall 2017 patchwork fur coat toughened up by J Brand leather trousers, retro round shades, and Dr. Martens ‘Coralia’ Velcro boots, which she wore on Sunday (February 12).

Look 2: Even though this Topshop Boutique tie-sleeve wool coat had the falling-off-the-shoulders aesthetic that she wears so well, it still possessed a sophisticated flair especially given its beautiful light gray colour. She styled it with a M2Malletier small white backpack and Topshop Hawk Croc boots.

Look 3: She’s with the band—literally—with this Zday shirt that cheekily paid homage to boyfriend Zayn Malik on Tuesday, Valentine’s Day (February 14) in New York City. No better way to continue the rock-star vibe than with layers of leather in her trench coat and pants plus a Uri Minkoff x Jason Rembert ‘Paul’ backpack. Jason Rembert is Zayn’s stylist, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see the singer borrowing this backpack from his girl. Those Dr. Martens ‘Coralia’ boots made a repeat appearance, too.

I love the chic simplicity of the second look, but the third really stole my heart for its connection to her main man. Which of the three caught your attention?

Selena Gomez In Coach, Proenza Schouler & Victoria Beckham – Out In New York City

Selena Gomez made her way around New York City this week promoting the upcoming Netflix show ’13 Reasons Why’, on which she is an executive producer.

Look 1: On Wednesday (February 8), Selena looked playful and fun in a floral Coach dress with a letterman-inspired bomber jacket over top. Black peep-toe Givenchy heels added a touch of sophistication to the youthful ensemble.

Look 2: Later the same day (you can see an assistant behind her carrying her jacket!), Selena changed into a black and white houndstooth-print Proenza Schouler Spring 2017 dress. Unfortunately, I’m having a much harder time with this look. There is just one too many ideas going on, and the proportions seem off–maybe one less peek-a-boo opening would help?

Look 3: Finally, Selena was seen leaving the 19th annual amfAR’s New York Gala wearing a look from Victoria Beckham’s Pre-Fall 2017 collection. The bold colour-blocking, extended sleeves and men’s shirt detailing show Selena’s love of fashion even if it’s well outside her M.O., and proves her recent commitment to a more grown-up look. This look has been worn by VB herself.

Ruby Rose In ADEAM – Out In New York City

Ruby Rose was spotted on Wednesday (February 8) making the streets of New York City her runway.

The actress wore a complete look from ADEAM’s Fall 2016 collection that boasts gray, suit-inspired pieces and plenty of interest.

In general, I love the suiting pieces of this look. Adding a structured bralette to a wide-legged, high-waisted suit pant is the perfect marriage of sexy and fierce. The third piece–a hybrid cardigan/mock-turtleneck sweater strikes me as dramatically more polarizing, but is still intriguing and unique, and totally on-par with this fashion forward look.

My only complaint is the ivory ribbons. I feel these might be intended to allude to suspenders, but for me, they simply complicate what could be a fierce ensemble.

Gabrielle Union In By Johnny & Raquel Allegra – Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Gabrielle Union was recently seen on the set of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ in Hollywood, California.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s moment with Australian brand, By Johnny, is clearly spreading, with Gabrielle also debuting an army-green frock from the Fall 2017 collection.

What could have been a relatively standard body-con sheath dress was taken to the next level by virtue of the waist-cinching knot and black piping that provided distinct flair.

Add to that the actress’s patterned Raquel Allegra coat and Stella Luna knotted heels, and this is a look that checks all the boxes on feminine, effortless, and cool-girl style.

Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham – Out In New York City

Those of you loving Victoria Beckham’s bold embrace of colour may be left craving a splash of it in her latest New York City look on Wednesday (February 8).

She gave the kaleidoscope of hues a break and wore a black Victoria Beckham ensemble consisting of a long coat and loose-fitting pants, styled with Celine shades, sneakers, and the Victoria Beckham ‘Half Moon’ bag.

Even though this was a less colourful look, it commanded a certain sporty-chic power that was casually unforced—and all the stronger for that reason.

Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham – Out In New York

Victoria Beckham was your BDOTW last week, as you clearly loved her embrace of the colour spectrum, and she continued her bold streak while out in New York over the past few days in advance of New York Fashion Week.

Look 1: On Monday (February 6), she modeled a Victoria Beckham red ribbed long sweater and skirt enlivened by the bright blue blouse underneath. Her favoured Celine flat-top visors as well as Victoria Beckham black half-booties completed the simple yet statement-making look.

Look 2: Making a quick change that same day, she kept the saturated shades going strong in this pumpkin-orange Victoria Beckham Pre-Fall 2017 extended-sleeve dress. While the silhouette draped away from the body, the button accents and shaping still provided a flattering awareness of form. Swapping the same style of VB shoes seen earlier for this cerulean-blue pair, she wrapped up the look with a quirky pop of colour.

Look 3: This may have been her least colourful look, seen on Tuesday (February 7), but it was no less impactful. While the palette was more muted, the rich burgundy sweater paired with Victoria Beckham wide-leg gray trousers made for chic companions—especially when accessorized with the Victoria Beckham ‘Half Moon’ bag that finished the ensemble with a crisp white spark.
