You know what they say about celebrities: they’re just like us (if being like us means looking perfectly put-together, and not a frenzied hot mess, when catching a flight). It never ceases to amaze us how the rich and famous all seem to have that immune-to-jet-lag gene. How do they manage to look just as flawless stepping off a transatlantic flight as they did at the check-in desk ten hours prior? Why aren’t they all walking off flights wearing socks, Birkenstocks, and their old college hoodie?
When it comes to pristine airport style, no one does it better than glamazon Miranda Kerr. Okay, it’s true that the Aussie model has an unfair advantage; she spends half her life catching flights, jumping onto planes as frequently as we hail cabs, which means she’s had a lot of time to perfect her outfits. Kerr’s pre-flight style is so polished that she looks almost supernatural and, quite frankly, we want a slice of whatever she’s having.
After a bit of careful observation, it seems that Kerr’s slick travel aesthetic isn’t actually unobtainable – she simply follows three key style rules, which we delve into below. And if you want to see more, we’ve rounded up her best flight-mode outfits to copy the next time you fly.
Supersize Those Sunglasses
Eternally chic, a classic pair of large black sunnies is the perfect way to hide puffiness from lack of sleep and dark circles caused by dehydration.
Tailor Your Layers
A long tailored coat not only keeps you warm whilst flying 39,000 feet high, but it’s also a quick and easy way to look put-together – even if you don’t feel it.
Accessories Are Your Friends
An oversized tote bag is the perfect travel companion to hold everything you need and finish off your look in style. Plus, little touches like delicate bracelets and chokers are an easy way to look stylish and effortless (when you don’t feel like making much effort).
