The Best Red Carpet-Worthy Celebrity Airport Outfits

If you've ever seen a celebrity at the airport, they're usually on their way to a private jet, accompanied by an Everest of designer luggage and dodging a swarm of paparazzi. But as fashion detectives, we're not here for the peripheral details— we're all about the bells and whistles of their airport security-ready looks ("don't look at me" sunglasses and a snazzy carryall bag, included). Where us mere mortals opt for athleisure vibes, celebrities use the photo op to continue their showcase of never-ending wealth and style. In other words, they're the only passengers on board in six-inch heels.

That being said, we could stand to learn a few tricks from them when it comes to dressing for the moment you walk off the plane, instead of the hell that's being on one. (You know, those business trips that always sound more fun than they actually are). Ahead, we're cataloguing some of our favorite shut-it-down moments in celebrity airport style. See you on the tarmac.

Is this what going straight from the plane to the boardroom looks like? Because if so, we'll take two of everything. Please and thank you.

Rihanna
Pretty much anything Rihanna does is iconic, but walking off the airplane in (basically) a sleeping bag is kind of a look. Cue the Navy applause.

Are you trying to tell us that you don't wear your Fausto Puglisi boots to the airport, too? Say it isn't so.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
To ward off that frigid cabin air, opt for a Balmain blazer. Or, you know, one of those free blankets they leave on your seat. But don't forget to belt it, as seen here.

Gigi Hadid
Because when your Instagram followers outnumber the population of Australia, Versace at the airport makes total sense.

Kendall Jenner
After all, they say models live half their lives in the sky. Why not turn a look while you're up there?

Is that a flight attendant? Or a supermodel who kodes? You tell us.

Miranda Kerr
Do we think that Gucci belt made it through security without setting any alarms off? Or was it the choker? Hmm...

Andreja Pejic
When the terminal is your runway (and your Tome coat is just too good to take off).

Is this what traveling like a '90s supermodel looks like? If so, where's our $10K so we can get out of bed?

No surprise here. Bodycon, monochrome, and some Yeezy — all of the Kardashian outfit boxes are ticked.
