You voted, we wrote it. When we asked you, our readers, to choose a model for this month’s edition of Model Style, you clearly knew who you wanted: Australian model Abbey Lee Kershaw was the hands-down winner. Chalk it up to her quirky grin, her edgy style or her piercing cheekbones; whatever it is, you loved her and we were happy you chose her.
Abbey Lee was discovered when she won the Girlfriend CoverGirl Model Search back in Australia. After a few runway appearances down under, she moved to New York and since then, has become one of the world’s most sought-after models. She has been photographed by famed photographers like Steven Meisel and Mario Testino, appeared on the cover of Australian Vogue and V and turned up in campaigns for Gucci and D&G.
If you’ve ever caught a glimpse of her “off duty” look, you’ll know that Abbey Lee is quirky-cool and totally down to earth, which makes her the perfect choice for our monthly style profile. With that, we present to you our super-individual model muse for March.
For our first venture (far left) into Abbey Lee’s style, we’ve chosen an ensemble that is chic and feminine, with a tough edge: a flirty lace mini dress, layered under a draped velvet jacket and paired with lace-up boots. For a chic take on Abbey Lee’s style, we like Free People’s Pucker Daisy Lace Dress ($138) paired with this Irresistible Boyfriend Jacket ($129.99) from J Jill. Add a pair of Deena & Ozzy’s Side-Buckle Booties ($68) for the finishing touch.
When it comes to fashion week, Abbey Lee knows that it is imperative to remain comfortable (second from left). Here she pairs high-waisted, slouchy pants with a paisley top and another pair of her favorite lace-up boots. For a similarly stylish outfit, try these Roll Hem Denim Harems ($35.90) by Mango with Charlotte Ronson’s Draped Top ($92). Antik Batik’s Mugu Linen Satchel Bag ($116) completes the outfit.
As you can see, Abbey Lee likes to add a 90s, grunge element to her look (middle). Here, she pairs a long lace skirt with a cropped acid-wash denim jacket for a look that is edgy yet fresh. To try a 90s-inspired look like this Abbey Lee’s, we love Karen Kane’s Gored Long Black Lace Skirt ($29.60) mixed with the Bryce Jacket ($108) from Guess.
Even when it comes to wearing a mini dress, Abbey Lee knows how to add her own spin to the look. Here (second from right) she pairs a khaki mini with a fur-trimmed “Penny Lane” jacket and lace tights. For a similar style, try this Richie Tank Dress ($126) by Karen Zambos Vintage Couture with this Long Hooded Bomber Jacket ($119.66) from Asos. These Rosevine Lace Fullfoot Tights ($14) from Urban Outfitters work for this look and the next.
For our final look, Abbey Lee has mixed it up with a black mini and a draped pink blazer (far right). Grab the lace tights from the previous look and add a tight black bandage dress. Then throw on this Draped Jersey Cardigan ($63) by Splendid and add a pair of Restricted Scout’s Lace-Up Platform Boots ($54.95).
