As a supermodel, Kaia Gerber finds herself in Paris a lot, whether she’s there to walk in a Valentino show or attend one for The Row. Because of that, it should come as no surprise that she’s picked up a thing or two from the French fashion capital’s seemingly endless source of stylish women, one of which she debuted following Ayo Edebiri’s performance on Saturday Night Live.
At NBC Studios in New York City to support her friend (and fellow client of stylist Danielle Goldberg), Gerber wore a very laissez-faire combination of stretchy black trousers from one of her favorite brands Bleusalt, a matching wool coat, an “Ayo” graphic tee, and the best part, a pair of ballerina pumps just like the ones that French women buy on repeat from brands such as Repetto and Margaux. Her shoe of choice, which is essentially a ballet flat but with a micro heel, effortlessly dressed up the model’s choice of lounge pants, something that the style is known to do with just about anything it’s paired with. And since no-work pieces are paramount to the quintessential French-girl fashion formula, it isn’t hard to imagine why the easy and versatile alt for ballet flats has become a pivotal part of that equation.
