Sports Style Inspiration With Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr gets into great shape in the August 2012 edition of Harper's Bazaar Australia. In this Olympic inspired editorial, the stunning Aussie model stretches her limbs in the hottest sports ensembles. I loved seeing how stylist Vanessa Coyle took essentially non-sporty looks from the Fall 2012 runways and turned them into something sleekly athletic.

Miranda sets the acrobatic scene in a colour block and patchwork striped leather top with rounded shoulders by Céline. A pair of white Wolford briefs, Giorgio Armani gloves and pointy silhouette Céline pumps perfect this sports luxe look.

Miranda's toned physique is displayed in a long-sleeved black knit Ralph Lauren top with silver embellished neckline, and a pair of basic black Wolford bikini briefs. Her gymtastic look is accessorized with a blue chain Versace leather logoed belt & a pink Stella McCartney pouch. 

Bringing high end designer wear to the high rope, Miranda sports an eye-catching tangerine silk-crepe stretch dress by Versace, with the label's logo imprinted upon it. A blue Versace leather logoed belt and a black Adidas by Stella McCartney tee complete her outfit.
Miranda shows off her lithe figure and agility in a royal blue Lanvin sleeveless sheath dress and netted one-shoulded top. She carries all her necessities in a glossy silver Adidas by Stella McCartney moon bag and miniature media pouch. A Yves Saint Laurent leather belt accents her slim waist. Only a supermodel would need a diamond Cartier bracelet to work out.

Miranda raises the bar in a vintage floral print wool knit bodysuit by Dolce & Gabbana, clinched in by a wide silver leather Jimmy Choo belt. Her white pointy silhouette pumps are by Céline. Could you imagine any Olympic gymnast in this look? We would be paying more attention to the outfit than the floor skills.

Miranda balances out the sporting theme in a deluxe look by Lanvin. Her scarlet red neoprene dress is fitted with a ruffled collar and nipped in by a black Diane von Furstenberg belt.

Interestingly enough, Miranda Kerr was also featured in the exact same Lanvin dress in the August 2012 issue of Vogue Turkey. I much prefer the styling in the previous picture.

I've never been one for the urbane sportswear trend, but after seeing how it has been interpreted through this editorial, I have changed my mind. Is this a trend you're in favour of?

Hi sweetie, these pictures are incredible! I am in love with the styling and the direction of these shots are so intriguing. I love how she looks in that amazing Celine top and the Dolce and Gabbana is also favourite. I must agree with you, that I much prefer the styling of Miranda in the Lanvin dress in the first picture, it really shows of the beautiful shape of the dress! :)

Jacy said...

Wow...the styling in this shoot was wonderfully creative! I know I would not have had the vision to turn most of these runway pieces into anything remotely "sporty." And, could Miranda Kerr be more talented?? She can really do it all.
Thank you for your sweet comment dear! Hope you're having a great week!
