Kaia Gerber kicked off her coolest overall week effortlessly.
The model was seen leaving a studio in Los Angeles on Monday afternoon in a sleek, oversized black blazer and matching pants – an elevated look which she toned down with Adidas Samba trainers. Always minimalist, Gerber accessorized only a black leather handbag with gold hardware and diamond earrings. She opted for natural make-up and a wavy ‘do.
Gerber has always been a sucker for an edited wardrobe. Last year, she collaborated with affordable retailer Zara on a capsule collection of more than 30 pieces of ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories meant to be any wearer’s “wardrobe essentials”. .
“I really wanted to focus on the idea that if I packed this, could it last me a month, like fashion month, for example? I just wanted it to be the best of basics,” said she declared.
Her chic Monday outing comes after a weekend of mourning for the model. She and her boyfriend Austin Butler were among those who attended the Lisa Marie Presley memorial at the Graceland mansion in Memphis on Sunday. Butler portrayed the late singer’s father, Elvis Presley, in Baz Luhrmann’s biopic about him, Elvis, and became close to the Presley family.
Gerber and Butler wore all-black ensembles for the somber occasion, according to reports, and sat behind the Presley family, while musicians like Alanis Morissette and Axl Rose paid tribute to Elvis’ only child, who died on last month.
