When your job entails spending hours getting dolled up for a runway show that lasts mere minutes, it makes sense that you'd opt for simple basics (and flats) to get you through the parts of your day that aren't spent on the catwalk. But seeing as being a model is a full-time job, looking their best even on their off time is essential. No wonder the ones shown here have mastered the art of the effortlessly put-together look! Take a cue from their outfits and you'll see how to layer like an expert, what to do to make those neutrals look anything but, and just how powerful one swipe of red-hot lipstick can be.
