The Crazy-High Cost Of A “Casual” Celeb Outfit

Red carpets are one thing, but these days, celebrities have mastered the art of turning even the most casual public appearance into a fashion show. There's Kendall Jenner sporting her thigh-high gladiator heels at a basketball game; Karlie Kloss wearing a '90s slip gown to grab coffee, and of course, Taylor Swift, who famously favors dresses and heels, even after a sweaty workout. Frankly, with the swarms of papparazzi around every time these stars leave the house, we don't blame them for making sure their outfits are extra-polished at all times. But, we couldn't have imagined just how expensive that is to achieve. Take Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who was snapped at the airport wearing black skinnies, an animal-print blouse, and a black leather moto jacket. Sure, these pieces sound simple — basic, even. But, according to E!, the cost of model's look adds up to a whopping $56,559. Nope, not a typo. The website broke her entire ensemble down for us, totaling up items such as a Givenchy leather bowling bag ($2,995) and a Saint Laurent jacket ($4,990). Of course, Rosie's pricy jewelry brings up her outfit's total quite a bit — just her Anita Ko necklace retails at $22,800 (think about having to take that off at security). But, even without including any of the jewelry, this is still a $10,000 getup. We're all for taking inspiration from our favorite supermodels and classing up our airport style game, but this goes way beyond swapping out sweatpants for skinny jeans, that's for sure.
