As the calendar flips over to 2017, the runway models du jour have wasted no time in embracing the New Year with a decidedly sporty approach (and make-up free, no less). The three Vogue cover girls Gisele, Bella, and Karlie celebrated the New Year with a series of outdoorsy, fresh-faced posts on Instagram, taking time off before the mania of fashion month commences. Captioned “Let’s let go of what no longer serves us,” Gisele flexed her yoga moves on the beach with her signature dose of wellbeing philosophy.
2017 is set to be a big year for Bella Hadid after being crowned Model of the Year 2016 by Models.com, following the announcement of her collaboration with Chrome Hearts. Athluxury has taken over from athleisure––Bella slipped on her greatest athluxe thermals on vacation with friends in the mountains. Elsewhere, fellow Victoria’s Secret model Karlie Kloss took to the sun lounger to top up her Vitamin D––without the trial-run bangs she sported during the holiday season––stating that she is “excited for all ahead in 2017.”
Grace Mahary’s 2017 looks bright, too. After walking for the likes of Altuzarra, Chanel, Emilio Pucci, Proenza Schouler, and Victoria’s Secret, Mahary welcomed the year ahead on vacation in Bagan, wearing an oversized jumper alongside the breakout trend of 2016, a ‘90s black choker.
