Doutzen Kroes’ NYFW Street Style

As New York Fashion Week marches on, supermodel Doutzen Kroes has been seen out and about in NYC, showcasing her own penchant for chic, street style.

I was immediately drawn to the electric-blue hue of the shirting in her first look, worn at the Daily Front Row’s Fashion Media Awards. While the oversized pocket detail could come across as comical on some occasions, that was quickly quashed by her ultra-sophisticated high-waist trousers. The only thing I would have changed is the white shoes for a tonal navy sandal.

The casual-cool factor that belongs to any ensemble by The Row was plainly felt in this second look. It may have been a study in monochromatic neutrals, but I would say that her statement eyeglasses and mannish loafers kept the ensemble from being one-note.

I never thought I would say it, but those lug-sole boots actually work on Doutzen here. Somehow, she manages to make every clunky inch of them work with her T-shirt and pencil skirt, punched up by that orange shoulder bag.

Did you like her trio of street-style outings?

BoF 500 Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Selena Gomez and Jared Leto weren’t the only two holding court at the BoF 500 Gala on Saturday (September 9) in New York City. Here, a look at the other guests in attendance.

Doutzen Kroes: The model showed off her form in a ruched and gathered Jason Wu Spring 2018 drawstring dress that offered a new twist on the LBD.

Lewis Hamilton: If Lewis’s confetti pants didn’t spell party, I don’t know what does. This Dior Homme look is fashion-forward without being overcooked or try-hard. Jared Leto may want to take notes.

Taylor Hill: I’m afraid this Julien Macdonald Fall 2017 metallic mini came across as a bit dated, but it was more the crimped hair and nude sandals that killed the vibe.

Front Row @ Tom Ford Spring 2018

Tom Ford returned to New York Fashion Week with his Spring 2018 show taking place in front of a celeb-packed front row yesterday (September 6).

Kim Kardashian: Forever the shy retiring type, the reality star wore a latex LaQuan Smith dress which I can only imagine took a team of people to help her get into it.

Russell Westbrook: The baller wore a shawl collar suit which I loved for its sharp dapper appeal, until I got to the length of the trousers.

Ansel Elgort: The ‘Baby Driver’ actor didn’t have any issues in the trouser leg department, but with that colourful shimmering Tom Ford jacket, my eyes were immediately fixed to the top part of his look anyhow.

Front Row @ Miu Miu Cruise 2018 Show

The front row at the Miu Miu Cruise 2018 show, held during Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week on Sunday (July 2), was chock-full of Miu Miu-donning darlings—each embracing the quirky charm of the label in their own unique way.

Elle Fanning: Looking every bit like a modern-day Miu Miu princess, Elle masterfully wore a precious look from the Fall 2017 collection that got its sweet edge from the explosion of oversized paillettes and magpie-worthy embellishment. What better, then, than a pearl-encrusted headband—a modern girl’s tiara, of course—to top off her ballerina bun.

Alexa Chung: With a more traditional edgy offering in play, Alexa wore another interpretation of scintillating sequins in this silvery-gray frock topped off with a studded, leather moto jacket. Of course, it was the embellished buckle footwear in schoolgirl plaid that really put the look into the realm of signature Miu Miu quirk.

Teresa Palmer: While there would be no sparkling embellishment to speak of in Teresa’s look, the whimsical cherry print more than made up for it in this vintage-inspired, ruffle frock. The styling lent itself even more to the eccentric Miu Miu twist with costume-y bauble earrings, a seemingly out-of-place blue purse, and glittery platform heels each playing unusual companions whilst elevating the dress’s twee spirit.

Doutzen Kroes In Azzedine Alaïa – Save The Elephants Dinner

Doutzen Kroes co-hosted the Save the Elephants dinner on Monday (June 12) in London, where Ruth Wilson and Cara Delevingne were also in attendance.

Her Azzedine Alaïa Spring 2017 gown could be said to be quite solemn, but she wore it with such sleek, streamlined precision that there was beauty in its subtlety.

Showing that the night’s focus was not on the fashion but on the animal kingdom’s gentle giants, she finished the dress with a Tiffany & Co. elephant brooch which took centre stage in her look.

2017 amfAR Gala Cannes Model Roundup

The models were out in force for the amfAR Gala Cannes on Thursday (May 25) during the Cannes Film Festival.

Elsa Hosk: Striking a pose with a distinct pink, pinup mood, this Ermanno Scervino Fall 2017 gown had all the hallmarks of boudoir dressing with the exposed corset and sheer lace—distracting black heels notwithstanding.

Bianca Balti: What’s this? A model not baring it all? Bianca went for a more conservative stance in a Dolce & Gabbana black gown that oozed of old Hollywood glamour when styled with finger waves, statement jewels, and Gianvito Rossi shoes.

Joan Smalls: Between the length, the ubiquitous slit, and the collar-style neck piece, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of this Elie Saab Spring 2017 Couture dress paired with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and gigantic hoop earrings. Hip-hop, tribal glam?
