    Not many ladies have the moxie to paddle out into the blue abyss and make peace with waves the size of Sunset Boulevard billboards (personally, we stop ourselves at dipping a toe into the frigid Pacific!). But, holding five ASP World Titles, 25-year-old Aussie surfer Stephanie Gilmore owns perilous H20 on a daily basis. And outside of the agua, she's got a reputation for being the most chill chick, but also rocking getups better suited for the glossies than the beach.

    Just ahead of boarding a plane to Micronesia, the jet-setting wave rider invited R29 to peek into her world, wardrobe, and WeHo hotel room, which was stuffed with garb from labels like Surface to Air and Balenciaga mixed in with her sponsor, Quiksilver. With a little help from her accessories-designer sis, Gilmore styled four ferocious looks for our viewing pleasure, all reflecting the confidence of a woman who's riding high. So, hold onto your bikini bottoms, we've got a strong swell of inspiration for females everywhere, coming right up.
