The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show at New York City is the most important event in the world of lingerie, and its angels are Victoria’s Secret. One of her Angels is Miranda Kerr, who arrived extra chic to the rehearsal of the event even when she’d have to change a couple of minutes later to jump on the runway. Her outfit was such a hit, that she was qualified as one of the best-dressed celebrities from November the 5th to November the 9th by British Vogue (http://www.vogue.co.uk/spy/celebrity-photos/2012/11/5/best-dressed—09/11/12).
Honestly, I fell in love with her style. Why? Because it’s super easy to copy and fits any kind of body, a hard thing to achieve, really. It’s fresh, young, comfy and classy. Let’s break it down, shall we?
What is she wearing?
Leather black shorts, gray t-shirt, blue denim shirt, gray jacket, black translucent tights and Isabel Marant Cow-girl boots.
The leather black shorts make her legs look longer. The jacket is longer than the shorts so the whole person appears to be taller. The boots are an excellent choice because they focus on showing the contour of the legs, as well as the black translucent tights.
Wearing layers on the upper part of the outfit is very clever. Why? Because the denim shirt and the gray jacket make us focus on the center of the body, which is the gray t-shirt. The part of the gray t-shirt we see is so small it tricks our minds into believing Miranda’s much slimmer than she actually is. It sort of makes us think that the portion of torso covered by the gray t-shirt we see is the only portion of torso there is.
Love how the t-shirt matches the jacket. The denim shirt standing out forms two vertical blue lines that make Miranda look taller and thinner.
She’s following the three colors rule, which establishes you’re allowed to wear no more than three colors in your outfit. This adds uniformity to the look and makes it look simpler (thus, elegant), even though it’s a very complex combination of elements.
How to copy?
This one’s pretty easy. Wear mini shorts with black translucent tights and boots (even Converse boots).
Remember the three colors rule! You can match up to three colors on your outfit for a safe classic choice.
If you’re doing the layers thing, the last layer has to be the longest and the first one the shortest. The layer in the middle has to outstand so it really helps outline your body.
Oh, Miranda, when I grow up I want to be twice as fashionable as you! (Yes, twice 😉 )
Craaaaazy diamonds! Dream on and shine all over as usual, ok? See you soon! Take Care. Lotta Love. Ciao!
