You may know her as the gorgeous model in the American Apparel ads, but there's so much more to Kristen Gipson than just a pretty face. The Springfield native is also the buyer for the super-hip RSVP Gallery in Wicker Park. With such an impressive résumé, it should be no surprise that someone who curates a shop filled with fabulous accessories, pop art, and clothing from around the globe, has amazing taste — and, naturally, a wardrobe to match.
To give us a hit of her incredible style, Gipson pulled together four casual-yet-chic looks that prove we can dress down while keeping up appearances. But, make no mistake: These ensembles may look laid-back, but this jet-setter has a soft spot for pieces from coveted designers like Chanel and Balenciaga. Sure, this down-to-earth Midwestern gal claims to be over material possessions, but, holy smokes, she sure can rock a pair of Louboutins like nobody's business.
