7 Model-Approved Street Style Looks to Try This Winter

Considering all the frenzied to-ing and fro-ing that’s required of attendees during New York Fashion Week, it’s always a wonder how the models—who have to cover more ground than most—make schlepping from point A to point B look effortlessly chic, even in the freezing rain.



A girl can learn a thing or two from them when it comes to dressing for a busy winter in the city. Whether you pull a page from Bella Hadid’s rule book and opt for an itty-bitty crop top with navel-gazing appeal, amp up an otherwise understated off-duty uniform with a cloak of many colors à la Aymeline Valade, or show your band loyalty like Kendall Jenner in a vintage concert T-shirt, we’ve assembled a model-approved look for every inclination.

At 49, Lisa Bonet Has This Whole Earth-Mother Style Thing Down

For years, the actress and perennial bohème icon Lisa Bonet has stood in as the Earth Mother ideal. All dreads and peasant skirts, the free-spirited beauty practically created the ’90s uniform of floral slip dresses, distressed combat boots, and velvet outerwear (sans bra, of course) during her heyday. But now, at 49, Bonet shows no sign of slowing down in the style department.



Stepping out in Los Angeles today, the mother of Zoë Kravitz (with rocker Lenny) and two younger children (with her Game of Thrones–star husband, Jason Momoa) sported a low-key ensemble that was high on vibes. Bonet breezed along in a vintage Jimi Hendrix Experience band tee over a wispy black peasant skirt, accented by black leather brogues. Beaded bracelets flanked the dedicated yogi’s wrists and ankles, while she coolly threw a messenger bag over her shoulder. Her trademark dreads were pulled off her face, while a pair of rounded sunglasses were perched on her nose. It was a mellow and liberating finish to a look that, after all these years, still comes naturally.

Robert Pattinson and FKA twigs’s Consciously Coordinated Red Carpet Style

The only thing sweeter than a supportive couple is a couple supporting each other in style. Just look to Robert Pattinson and FKA twigs, who earlier today turned out at the London premiere of Pattinson’s new film, The Lost City of Z, with their arms placed lovingly around each other. Pattinson seemed to only have eyes for FKA twigs as he whispered sweet nothings into his girlfriend’s ear, but the rest of the world took notice of their consciously coordinated red carpet wardrobe. From a fashion perspective, Pattinson is fully committed to Dior.



When he showed up solo to the film’s Berlin premiere, he debuted a dapper new look from the French house, and made a compelling case for the statement coat. Once across the English Channel, Pattinson opted for a Dior Homme two-button notch lapel suit in navy; doing his part to debunk the myth that you can’t wear black with blue, Pattinson accessorized with Dior’s black silk tie and black leather derbies. The unexpected combination complemented FKA twigs’s Givenchy jumper, which featured a bustier top, exposed zippers, and visible pockets, a nod to her beau’s film’s action-adventure genre. And while she hit a near-identical note in Givenchy at the BAFTAs on Sunday, the duo’s joint appearances prove that some things are just better in pairs.

Split’s Jessica Sula Says She’s Addicted to Fashion Week

As the breakout star of the horror film Split, Jessica Sula enjoyed this week some of the privileges that come with Hollywood celebrity: namely, a front row seat at New York Fashion Week. “I have never attended Fashion Week so it was all a pretty absorbing experience,” said the 22-year-old actress. “Fashion Week was explained to me as ‘constantly moving’—maybe quite hectic at some points, but exciting. I was surprised how all that energy got me totally addicted to watching the shows.” Sula took in two shows—Dion Lee and Jenny Packham—which reflected the actress’s taste for international labels.



“I enjoyed the elegant cuts of Jenny Packham and [the] edge of Dion Lee,” said Sula. “It was so amazing to get to meet the designers [and] my favorite part was getting to see it all for the first time.” But did anyone elude the rising star? “I have a girl crush on the captivating Jourdan Dunn,” admitted Sula, adding, “but my [designer] crush has to be everything Zac Posen.” As for her front row wardrobe, Sula is all about prim practicality. “There are some lovely Grey Jason Wu outfits I have that always make me feel very stylish but simple. A good pair of boots paired with my vintage Max Mara coat, and comfortable and stylish Via Spiga Mary Jane heels.” Anything still on her Fashion Week hit list? “I heard Marc Jacobs’s show is pretty spectacular. Hopefully, I will be able to go one of these days.”

Pamela Anderson Steps Out in New York’s Buzziest New Label

Well, that was fast. It’s only been a few days since the buzzy under-the-radar label Section 8 had its first show, but the clothes seem to have found their way onto Pamela Anderson. The bombshell was spotted on the brand’s Instagram @sctn8 wearing a fresh-from-the-runway look: a mullet (shorter in the front, that is) pencil skirt and a grey bustier top.



Section 8 is comprised of a group of anonymous designers, but known names include London designer Ryohei Kawanishi and Hood By Air stylist Akeem Smith. (Among the mix of business casual looks and a Fubu sweatshirt reimaged as a skirt that were shown, the label also infamously used koi fish as an accessory, placing them into models's mouths. ) Anderson is a surprisingly good fit for the clothing. She’s been a more-is-more icon during her bare-it-all Baywatch days, and since last year, her pared-back style transformation once again put her back on the fashion radar. Though it seems unlikely Anderson will be accessorizing with a koi fish in her mouth, it’s nice to see a celebrity giving this very new label some star power.

Gigi Hadid Gives the Classic Winter White Wardrobe a Makeover

Bella, Selena, Kendall—a celebrity sporting the fashion-forward tracksuit isn’t anything new. We’ve seen the trend more times than we can count, but today, Gigi Hadid offered up the ultimate palette cleanser when she opted for a winter white version of the look.



Earlier this week, Hadid won the New York Fashion Week statement coat race in a patchwork motorcycle jacket by Marc Jacobs, and with her latest ensemble, she’s finishing first on the athleisure front, too. Hadid’s simple joggers and silk quilted Unravel bomber boasted the same streetwise sensibility with distressed texture throughout. The Topshop ruffled turtleneck added a pretty feminine element, with a glittering thread that mirrored the sheen of her outerwear. Oversize sunglasses were a cool touch and tied in with her matching Dr. Martens. But her single best accessory had to be those six-pack abs.

Kendall Jenner Has a Patriotic Street Style Moment at New York Fashion Week

After more than seven days and dozens of shows, New York Fashion Week has come to a close. It’s bittersweet, for sure, but leave it to Kendall Jenner to serve up a glorious salute to the first city on the Fall 2017 show circuit.



The model was seen leaving the Marc Jacobs presentation yesterday, which over the years has been considered the grand finale, in an all-American patriotic style statement. Jenner looked quite cozy in a cute Ralph Lauren fisherman’s sweater bearing the U.S. flag, which harked back to ’90s threads from the homegrown designer favorite. The 21-year-old made the look her own in a now-signature puffer jacket, an outerwear style she has sported in every imaginable iteration from gold to silver—this exact duster included. We first saw the Miaou pin-striped trousers with chain-metal detail on Jenner’s model bestie, Bella Hadid. And while the pants could have easily been a postshow loan (the Hadid and Jenner sisters have both been known to shop one another’s closets), her burgundy platform-soled loafers were surely lifted right off the Marc Jacobs runway. Here’s hoping Jenner will find room in her London Fashion Week suitcase for her new accessory souvenir.
