Kaia Gerber’s Best Style Moments

Kaia Gerber is quickly becoming one of the fashion industry’s most successful young celebrities. At only 17, she’s already landed a Vogue cover and Marc Jacobs beauty campaign (to name a few accomplishments). When it comes to style, the model’s go-to looks include anything from a matching crop-top set to flirty dresses and bulky black ankle boots.

Though she’s still in high school, it’s clear Gerber has a great sense of style and access to some of the coolest and most covetable designer pieces. To highlight Cindy Crawford’s daughter, we’ve rounded up our top Kaia Gerber style moments so you can get to know the next big street style star and see how her fashion choices are flourishing. Keep reading to see Kaia Gerber’s best style moments below.

How can you make jeans, a tee, and sneakers feel fresh? Kaia Gerber knows how: Swap out your go-to denim jacket for a cool suede version and add gray jeans and Chuck Taylor sneakers. Yep, it’s as simple as that. Gerber’s look is chic yet totally easy to wear for traveling.  On Kaia Gerber: Saint Laurent jacket; Converse Chuck Taylor High Top Sneakers ($55); Miu Miu sunglasses
Considering Kaia Gerber was born and raised in Los Angeles, it’s no surprise she owns a pair (or three or four) of the ultimate SoCal shoe staple: Vans sneakers. She teamed the cool mixed-print shoes with an affordable band tee from H&M for the easiest off-duty look ever. On Kaia Gerber: H&M Cotton Jersey T-Shirt ($18); Vans Mix Checker Old Skool Sneakers ($60)
Kaia Gerber just proved that she’s just like the rest of us (well, sort of), by wearing the comfortable outfit pretty much everyone has worn to the airport: a hoodie, leggings, and sneakers. She made it fashion by adding a fanny pack and beanie, as a budding supermodel does. On Kaia Gerber: Alexander Wang bag; Pared x Bec + Bridge Petite Amour Sunglasses in Emerald ($220)
What do you and your supermodel pal wear for a casual lunch date in Beverly Hills? Matching crop tops, high-waisted pants, and sneakers, naturally. Kaia Gerber and Kendall Jenner stepped out in the cutest coordinating looks, and it’s making us want to start a group text and plan our next outfits. Who’s with us? On Kaia Gerber: Converse sneakers; Alexander Wang bag. On Kendall Jenner: Louis Vuitton bag
Style Notes: While denim-on-denim looks have been around for quite some time, Gerber’s latest ensemble offers up a fresh take on the pairing. By combining cutoff shorts with a frayed, cutoff jean jacket, Gerber’s DIY-inspired denim ensemble is the perfect casual-cool approach to wearing the Canadian tuxedo. On Kaia Gerber: Re/Done High Rise Shorts ($138); Alexander Wang fanny pack; Converse Chuck Taylor High Top Sneakers ($55);  ($185); Brashy Studios Logo Bucket Hat ($65)
Style Notes: Gerber just wore the Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 sneakers that everyone wanted back in 2012 with a plaid miniskirt and cropped hoodie, which made the black low-top sneakers look fresher than ever. On Kaia Gerber: Off-White Cropped Cotton-Jersey Sweatshirt ($336) and Checked Tweed Miniskirt ($441); Alexander Wang bag; Supreme x Nike sneakers; Jennifer Fisher earrings
Style Notes: Gerber keeps her evening ensemble cool with black leather pants and a coordinating jacket and handbag, but livens up the look with pops of red in the detailing of her blouse and her pointed-toe heels. On Kaia Gerber: Hudson Revolver Denim Cape ($350) and Barbara High Waist Leather Super Skinny Pants ($950); Christian Louboutin Classique Decoltish 100 Velvet Toe Pumps ($675); Fendi bag
Style Notes: Follow Gerber’s lead, and keep ’90s-inspired pieces from looking costumey by keeping the rest of your look simple and pairing it with sneakers.  On Kaia Gerber: Miaou Morgan Plaid Deco Belt Jeans ($325); Reebok Classic Sneakers ($85)
Style Notes: This fall, we’re taking notes from Kaia Gerber and trying out camouflage pants. Ready to jump on board? Swap your skinny jeans for a printed pair like Gerber’s, and team them with a basic black tee and boots.
Style Notes: For a stylish daytime look, follow Gerber’s lead and wear a flirty dress with lace-up flat boots. On Kaia Gerber: Réalisation The Kate Ivory Sport Dress ($195); Dr. Martens Nappa Boots ($135)
Style Notes: Tone down a printed matching set with casual basics like Gerber’s simple black bra top. On Kaia Gerber: Moschino jacket and skirt
Style Notes: Wear velvet ankle boots with cropped jeans for a stylish look no matter the season. On Kaia Gerber: Topshop crop top; Re/Done Cropped Flare Jeans ($331); AllSaints Asher Shearling Biker Jacket; Freda Salvador Ace Lace-Up Mid-Heel Boots ($475)
Style Notes: Update your little black dress collection with a mesh or embellished option. Pair the classic dress with simple two-strap heels for a timeless evening look. On Kaia Gerber: Marc Jacobs A/W 15 sheer dress
Style Notes: Freshen up your style by mixing interesting textures like leather and statement furs. On Kaia Gerber: Pam & Gela coat; J Brand Leather Pants ($998); Dr. Martens Nappa Boots ($135); Brixton Kayla Cap ($88)
Style Notes: Keep your accessories easy by adding one simple choker to your evening look. On Kaia Gerber: Zimmermann playsuit; Marc Jacobs shoes
Style Notes: Give your go-to heels a rest, and opt for sleek sock boots instead. On Kaia Gerber: Re/Done Muscle Tee ($78); Are You Am I Meili Skirt ($279); Tony Bianco boots; Shay jewelry; VSA Designs jewelry. Up next, see what Cindy Crawford looked like at Kaia Gerber’s age.

Here’s the 2018 Way to Match Your Shoes and Bag

We’re just going to throw it out there: Matching your shoes and handbag perfectly to each other is an old-school concept. It works, it looks great, and it can take the guesswork out of styling, but it’s just not a necessary guideline to follow. Especially since there are plenty of other, unexpected ways to cleverly piece together an outfit.

If you’re ready for a new approach too, pay attention to the looks ahead. Each of them features creative ways to make bags and shoes feel cohesive in an overall ensemble without following any hard-and-fast rules. Keep scrolling for a closer look.

Go for playful vibes all around with a cheeky handbag and shoes in a can’t-help-but-smile-when-you-see-it color.
Does this bag match with these shoes? Nope. But they make perfect sense in this head-to-toe, prints- and color-mixed ensemble.
Instead of comparing shoes and bag, coordinate your footwear frill with the bit of ruffle by the neckline of your top.
Polar opposites attract in this case with clean, white sneakers and the most fantastic rainbow carryall.
When your boots have this much sparkle, you can tone down your other accessories so as to not steal the spotlight.
Instead of coordinating your bag and shoes, keep your entire look within the same palette, and your footwear can stand out by simply being a different color.
If you choose a handbag that so closely coordinates with your ensemble, then choose a pair of shoes that distinctly doesn’t (and vice versa).
Try this: Match your shoes to your lipstick and your bag to your collar.
You can coordinate shoes and bags by choosing ones in neutral colors—in this case, different neutrals.
As cool as it might be to have a matching pair of holographic heels, it’s even more unexpected to wear this statement handbag with a monochrome skirt-and-boot combination.
A pink bag and red shoes don’t necessarily “match,” but they’re one of our favorite clashing-color combinations.
Fuzzy boots, meet fuzzy handbag.
Is coordinating handbags to your twin’s (or BFF’s) coat a thing?

Unfiltered: Emmy Wines Behind the Scenes: Stars Dish on Awards Drinks (Wine Spectator)

Last night’s Primetime Emmy Awards featured some familiar honorees—Game of Thrones, 96-year-old national treasure Betty White, and Napa’s Sterling Vineyards and Italy’s Ferrari Trento costarring as the official still and sparkling wines of the Emmy Awards Season.

But the night wasn’t without primetime-style twists, and the best of them were accompanied by a glass of wine in hand. Here’s the scoop on what (wines) went down at the 70th Emmy Awards.

The cast and crew of newcomer The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel had a lot to celebrate, taking home the big Outstanding Comedy Series win. One immediate perk: Mrs. Maisel herself, Rachel Brosnahan, was one of the first people to get a taste of the yet-to-be-released Sterling Iridium Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 after receiving her own statuette for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, a Sterling rep informed us.

Awardees George R. R. Martin, Bill Hader and Henry Winkler were also given their own customized bottles of Iridium. “I love Sterling—this is a great wine,” first-time winner and longtime nominee Winkler was overheard saying. “But I’ve never had a bottle with my name on it!”

Director and producer Glenn Weiss certainly earned his personalized bottle, and plenty of occasion for popping it: Upon taking the stage to accept his Emmy for directing … the Oscars (meta), Weiss proposed to his girlfriend, Jan Svendsen. Unfiltered does wonder what would’ve happened if he hadn’t won or she hadn’t said yes, but thankfully for everyone, he did and so did she, and the showbiz mogul toasted both his exciting milestones later on with his own bottle of 2015 Iridium.

In celebration of the awards show’s platinum anniversary, the Governor’s Ball after-party—typically a formal sit-down dinner in a ballroom—transformed into an outdoor rooftop bash, complete with more than 35 different plates from Patina Catering, directed by chef Joachim Splichal of Wine Spectator Grand Award winner Patina restaurant in Los Angeles. The 4,000 attendees noshed on dishes such as bamboo-spiked prime short rib, “favacado” toast, and their own creations from a DIY baked-potato bar.

As for the party’s booze, Ketel One vodka guest-starred with three Emmys-themed cocktails: “Radiance,” “Enlightenment” and “Restoration,” which required some 6,000 pounds of ice, 75 pounds of strawberries and 2,400 edible flowers throughout the night, among other garnishes. In addition to Iridium, Sterling also poured its 2015 Platinum Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016 Napa Valley Chardonnay and 2016 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. On the bubbly side, Ferrari greeted Gov’s Ball guests upon arrival with glasses of its Brut Trentodoc, and posted up at its own “Ferrari Bar” to pour its full lineup, including the Brut, Brut Rosé, Perlé 2012 and Giulio Ferrari Riserva del Fondatore 2005.

“We are honored to have been chosen once again as the toast of excellence in television entertainment,” Ferrari president and CEO Matteo Lunelli said in a statement provided to Unfiltered. “We are also delighted to bring a touch of Italian lifestyle to this glamorous season of celebration.” Cin cin to all who put on the night’s memorable performances, both on the stage and behind the bar.
