Be more Karlie

I'm sure I'm not the only one who was delighted when Karlie Kloss was signed to be the new face of Topshop. Those of you who have seen my Pinterest (in particular my Karlie Kloss pins!) will already know that I love her style. But Karlie Kloss kitted out head to toe in Topshop? Perfection. After seeing her Topshop Lookbook, I found myself wanting to wanting to Be More Karlie, and wanting to dress more like her. And dress more like her, I did. To celebrate #bemorekarlie, I decided to try and emulate some of the pictures from the campaign. Obviously I don't have access to studio lighting or an industrial / urban space with stone steps and brick walls...but I gave it a go!

Blazer and trousers duo  // White tee (similar here and here)

Black crop top  //  Black shorts // Hoody (similar here) // Trench coat (similar here) // White sneakers

One of the things I love about Karlie is how her poses look so natural and effortless. I thought they'd be easy to mimic, but the cramp in my leg - then foot - decided otherwise. Apologies for the grainy pics - I'm just your average girl, so don't have fancy lighting rigged up or a photographer friend to take my snaps for me. My SLR wouldn't focus so I had to use my compact camera which has the WORST NIGHT CAPABILITIES KNOWN TO MAN/WOMAN. #firstworldproblems

But hey, I tried. I don't have a striped shirt, white sneakers, or a khaki jacket, so some improv was required. And in the last set of pics I promise I am wearing shorts - they're just really high waisted ones, not the tiny black knickers it looks like I'm wearing! A bad mix of my hella long legs and a really unfortunate camera angle haha!

  1. I love this campaign too! And I think you're giving Karlie a run for her money ;) x
