Miranda Kerr in New York City

Posted on January 17, 2013

For once, we don’t much like what the normally supremely appointed Miss Kerr is sporting on the street. We may not get this chance again soon, so we should all rush to make fun of her.


Miranda Kerr leaves studio in New York City.

Mango Printed Jacket. Helmut Lang Skinny Leather Pants. Miu Miu Culte Sunglasses. Givenchy Antigona Duffle. Barbara Bui Punky Ankle Boots.

And yet, the bitch still looks better in these clothes than any mere mortal would.

Fine. You win again, Kerr.

But we won’t soon forget the chambray henley. Oh, no. We won’t soon forget that, missy.

    Collarless chambray?  For shame.  It looks like the top and bottom halves of her body are wearing totally separate outfits.

    • Le_Sigh

      top half = sister wife

      bottom half = rocker chic

      • conniemd

         Actually I was thinking top was grandma wearing a cardigan to ward off the chill at lunch at Broadway Department store lunch room over pearl button blouse. Seriously I went to many a shopping trip and lunch with my grandma in the 1970’s with her wearing this exact top.

        • poggi

           Yes my first thought was that the top half was part of a”Koret” ensemble.

          • littlemac8

            dahum!!!  That’s harsh!!!  LOL

  • From the ground to the waist I like it. The denim shirt lets it down and I really hate her sunglasses.

    • kimmeister

      Ditto.  All the black leather bits, awesome.  Everything else, terrible.  The shades are just silly.

    • Sobaika

      It’s like she’s wearing two different outfits, one on top and another on the bottom.

  • How much paper does she have wadded up in that bag?

    • It’s big enough to hold her son. 

      • Celandine1

        Her son AND her freaking adorable little perfect prop dog.

  • Kathy_Marlow

    Same color shirt but in a knit, we’d be in total business, but chambray? NUH UH!!

  • Lizzyisi

    Right–I’d be totally on board with the jacket and pants if she were wearing almost anything but a *&!@%!$# blue chambray shirt. 

  • Carla_Charlton

    That particular style of sunglasses is not flattering to her.

    • teensmom99

      or to any one.

      • sk8tfan

        The glasses remind me of what I wore when I was five and thought I looked like a movie star. It was cute then. on an adult, not so much.

    • GorgeousThings

      And horribly aging. She’s young and gorgeous, but they make her look like Phyllis Diller.

  • ecallaw1977

    I hate the shoes.  I don’t just LOVE suede, wedges, or booties, but usually I can tolerate at least one of these features–but all 3 at once?  Blech.  But she looks fucking amazing in those pants. 

  • Those leather pants are wonderful.

  • The top of those pants must be hitting her right at the pubic bone, they’re so low.  yet she can still walk and look fab.  Dammit.

    • 3boysful

       To my eye, they look really uncomfortable.

    • Le_Sigh

      Lets take solace in that her ass will totally pop out if she even tries to sit down.

  • charlotte

    Her shades irritate me.

  • teensmom99

    It looks to me like she didn’t expect it to be cold (?) and was going to wear a bare-top andthen reached to see if she had a long sleeved shirt (check) and sweater/jacket (check).  Otherwise, no way to understand this outfit but once again, TLo got it on the nose.

  • nannypoo

    I like the shirt with it. It seems ironic somehow, but I don’t know why. Those sunglasses are from hell, though.

  • Yeah, that outfit looks ass. And she’s not getting any brownie points for being genetically gifted from me.

  • kimmeister

    That jacket belongs an an octogenarian and no one else.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Half rock star, half weekend in the family farm. Nope.

  • That bag is distractingly huge and I hate the sunglasses even more than the shirt, but somehow she still looks cute. Nofair!

  • sablehunter

    Wacky Iowa schoolteacher up top, hair band groupie on the bottom.  Yet the bitch still looks fabulous.

  • jw_ny

    give Elton John his sunglasses back….

  • hughman

    Sister-wife on top, Twisted Sister on the bottom.

    • filmcricket

      Oh, well played. *applause*

  • Puck Thornton

    Those Elton John specs are hideous.

  • LLuL

    Are denim shirts back in style? My in-laws will be pleased. 

  • deathandthestrawberry

    3 things: I think I owned that chambray blouse in 1994. Those booties are to die for. And those sunglasses make her look like an insect. It’s only thing that really doesn’t work for me.

  • MzzPants

    For me, the record scratch came at the jacket.  She might have pulled off the henley…and I mean might…if there had been a jacket that suited the pants.

  • What’s the problem? She looks cool and on trend. Chambray is very big right now.

  • Eeeew. Collarless chambray and weird sunglasses? No. The girl can wear some leather though. Dang.

  • kipper

    The Mullet of fashion, business on top, party on the bottom…..

  • wisenhar

    TLo, love ya, but that is not a Henley.

    • looks like a full-on button-down (ok, snap-down) to me

  • Candigirl1968

    I don’t mind the top and sweater, but she needed something other than leather pant, black boots and a ginormous black back to go with it.  The bottom half is way too heavy for the top. 

  • AR16

    Fellow NYC BKs: where is she?  Cannot figure out from the bizarre background, which I am looking at to avoid those sunglasses.

    • DBSNYC

      That’s Chelsea Piers 

  • tereliz

    Cute boots! But the collarless chambray button down just doesn’t go with anything she’s wearing and just makes the jacket and pants look silly together. Could you see this with a silver sequined top that grazed the hip instead?

    Can’t decide if I love the sunnies or loathe them, but they work with her face shape. 

  • MilaXX

    Eh’  it’s not too bad. We’ve seen worse, case in point see Cooper, B.

  • another_laura

    Is that outside Bouley Studio?  You mean she eats?

  • Yes, we see your bag, dear.

  • marilyn

    She two looks going here:  Shirt and jacket for lighter look, or shirt and pants with bag for heavy winter look.  She either needs to wear different pants or jacket.  

  • Cathy S

    She looks great from the waist down. But that’s all I can say. Okay, her sunglasses are horrible.

  • Judy_J

    That chambray henley needs to be burned.  It absolutely does NOT go with skinny leather jeans, that’s for sure.

  • barbarienne

    That chambray thing is hiddy. I’m not sure the jacket would work with those pants regardless, but it’s impossible to tell with that thing in the way.

    Also, I think I’ve seen those sunglasses on Spaceman Spiff (Calvin and Hobbes reference).

  • She does still look good, thats funny!

  • Let’s do a breakdown. Grade school teacher cardigan + wallmart chambray henley + studio 51 glasses + leather pants + is that a /suede/ version of that boot + bowling ball bag = Please turn around and this time put on clothes with the lights on, please.

  • I’m a sunglasses nut, I hate these.  However, my lust for that bag continues.

  • GorgeousThings

    Those glasses are 80s hiddy and totally aging. She looks 20 years older than she is.

  • Trisha26

    Don’t care much for the sunglasses (and at night too…side-eye), the jacket (twee), the shirt (seriously?), and the wedges (detest). The pants and bag are to die.

  • Fyolette

    let’s all not forget that she was just appointed as a new face of Mango, which explains the jacket. Contractual obligations, sigh. However, I’m pretty sure that Mango’s EXTENSIVE collection should have a couple of cuter pieces.

  • Anathema_Device

    The shirt and sweater are awful. Well, the shirt tucking is awful. I like the idea of chambray with the leather pants.

    But what wouldn’t I give to have those pants and look that good in them…

  • Tucked in chambray henley.  Girl.  Thank you for confirmation of your fallibility.

  • tinyredlocks

    Boots. Love. Must have.

  • AthenaJ

    She’s dressed like a naughty granny.

  • girliecue

    How on god’s green earth did she manage to tuck that blouse into those pants???

  • StephanieLovesTLo

    That is a scroll-up fug!

  • Sara LaBatt

    Where did she tuck that shirt in that it’s not making big weird bulges in the tight leather pants?  Some sort of hole in the space-time continuum right around her waistband.  OR it’s a chambray henley BODYSUIT.  I think the sweater could work with the rest with the right transitional slim-fitted tee, but not this big baggy awkward tribute to 1987.

  • guest2visits

    Nice little sweater, nice big bag.   Horrid booties. Chambray doesn’t go with any of it.

  • Do you ever wonder if ladystars get carpal tunnel from holding their swag bags like that all the time?

    •  I absolutely developed tennis elbow/tendonitis from one long party (outdoors at Epcot, so there was no place to deposit the bag) where I held my bag that way all night.  No kidding.  Had to do weeks of physical therapy.
        So yes, I do wonder how their toothpick arms (hello, Rose Byrne) can handle it.

  • I’m happy to make fun of the sunnies, the chambray and the hideous jacket but only half-heartedly ’cause the rest of her is so tough and banging.

  • RzYoung

    I can’t imagine a world where, not only would I fit into ‘skinny leather pants’, but I could actually tuck a chambray skirt INTO them!

  • kathrineb

    so the most beautiful women ever wears something boring but mildly wacky? *YAWN* wheres my Chloë Sevigny?

  • bluefish

    I saw the legendary Anne Baxter in an episode of Columbo from 1972 last night.  She was wearing those sunglasses in one scene.  A mismatch between above and below.  I’m not a fan of skin tight leather pants but those look amazing on her.  That’s not as much a Henley as it is a faded denin shirt with a modified Nehru collar.  An odd look with those skin tights.

  • peachy

    i like the look, excepting the sunnies. it looks comfortable to go out and about in.

  • kategs

    And that shirt (not henley, sorry guys) is what I wanted to buy!  And if I could look like that in those pants, them as well.

  • Snailstsichr

    I had a jacket like that from Eddie Bauer in the early 90s, only the colors were not so dull.

  • lalahartma

    Nice pants!
