Over the years, a model’s influence has spread beyond the confines of the catwalk. We compulsively follow them on social media, know the ins and outs of their personal lives, and want to dress just like them. While some models save the fashion fanfare for the runway, others have off-duty looks that are just as stylish as the ones they wear to work. Below, we rounded up the five best-dressed models of all time — and how to dress just like them.
As a model, it’s important to be able to pull off a variety of fashion-forward outfits; however, having a signature look off duty can cement their place as a fashion icon. Case in point: Twiggy. With her pixie cut, lengthy lashes, and preppy threads, Twiggy is the epitome of mod fashion. Whether dressed in a micro-mini frock or a relaxed sweater and pants, this model manages to be sexy, feminine, and polished at the same time. Want to copy her look? Stick to the more structured pieces in your wardrobe, whether that’s an A-line skirt or crisp trousers. For example, pair a cute shift dress with some up-to-there boots and tie your hair back in a sleek ponytail. Oh, and while you’re at it, don’t forget to coat your lashes with some volumizing mascara.
