Miranda Kerr in Barbara Bui: Fly Girl

 

When showing up at the airport, people seem to either go sweatsuit-casual or too dressed up. Rarely do you see girls strike the right balance of comfort and chic. But Miranda Kerr is, indeed, a rare case. Showing up at LAX Airport on January 24th, she was the epitome of cool street style in her off-duty-model staples of Balenciaga quilted leather biker jacket and Alexander Wang Diego bucket bag. But it was her Barbara Bui ankle boots that took her jet-setting look from ordinary to extraordinary.

As recently proven by Jessica Alba, Barbara is the go-to designer for killer footwear you won’t see on stylish feet everywhere you turn. These pointy, buckled wedges, out of Bui’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection, are hyper-edgy with just enough polish to keep up the class.

A more casual (and arguably more comfortable) option are Bui’s pony-hair booties. They’ve got the buckled appeal of Miranda’s boots, with a lug-sole that will keep you from slipping as you dash to your gate. At Forward by Elyse Walker for $575 (from $1,150).
