[Welcome to Celebrity Chic on the Cheap, where our style guru takes a celebrity look and breaks it down for you, our poor college fashionista. What does that mean? It means that while the celebrities (like too-cute-for-words Rachel Bilson) are spending $5,000 and more on an ensemble, you an spend way less…and save the rest for Margarita Mondays.]
It’s a no-brainer to look to models for fashionspiration. Their whole professional life revolves around clothes, and inevitably, their personal style is a cut above the rest as a result. Gisele Bundchen is no exception. She has been modeling for well over a decade, and her style reflects the fact that she has an unfathomable amount of clothes. She is sleek, trendy, sophisticated, fun, and whimsical. It takes a high-level fashionista to create such a diverse, yet cohesive, personal aesthetic, and it would be a crime to not acknowledge Gisele’s amazing fashion choices.
Recently, she was out and about for a beauty event, and she rocked an eye-catching and stunning look, perfect for a night out (even if you don’t have a super-model body, because, honestly, who does?!)
The power of sequins is undeniable. A plain black blazer would have been a perfectly acceptable choice, but a sequin-embellished blazer adds extra punch and vibrancy that elevates this look from cute to glam. A basic white tank top is a summer staple, and can easily be transformed into something drop dead sexy when paired with the right pieces. Gisele went with a pencil skirt, which looks amazing. Two neutral pieces from opposite sides of the fashion spectrum (uber casual and consummate female professional) are a brilliant combination. They collide to create an effortlessly simple, seductive, fashion-forward aesthetic.
Heels with chunky accents add an unexpected twist towards boho chic, and a quilted chain strap bag adds a bit of classic elegance. Gisele combines so many different inspirations came together to form one beautiful, easy to put together look.
