Models get paid to dress up in designer clothes on the runway, in the pages of magazines and out to glamorous events—but what do they wear when they’re off-duty? We’ve spotted Hilary Rhoda, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Candice Swanepoel and other famous faces looking casual and comfortable—and putting their personal style on full display. Click through to see what top models wear in their down time.
Karlie Kloss looked like she could’ve been on set when she was caught talking on the phone in this candid snap during NYFW. While rushing between runway shows, the top model made a pair of white and black shorts look street-chic with a long-sleeved black top and Converse high-tops.

Hilary Rhoda did summer in the city style in Soho, wearing a pretty flowered wrap dress that showed off her legs and strappy leather sandals that surely gave her feet a break from the sky-high heels we see her in at events.

Kate Upton was caught on the go in L.A. following a tried-and-true shortcut to an easy-chic ensemble—mix neutral pieces. The model and actress’ tan leather pants lent some structure to her slouchy cream sweater, and her olive trench brought the two together. Embellished smoking slippers and oversized sunglasses made the look just a little bit more luxe.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley knows she’s going to get photographed wherever she goes, so she looked camera-ready even while out on a shopping spree. Her airy Isabel Marant blouse and patterned cropped pants coordinated with her white laser-cut Dolce & Gabbana tote for a look that was summer street style perfection.
When Anja Rubik wasn’t busy stomping the runways during Paris Fashion Week, she was seen showing off her personal style in an oversized Celine turtleneck sweater, modern knee-length skirt and ankle booties.
Cara Delevingne swapped the designer gowns for her signature edgy, high-low style as she left her London home. The model-of-the-moment wore her ubiquitous Burberry Brit leather jacket with eye-catching tropical print Zoe Karssen pants, a borrowed-from-the-boys Trapstar sweater and Chanel sneakers.
Edie Campbell worked a relaxed summer vibe while checking out the Audi Polo Challenge. The model’s grey and white striped trousers looks super comfy, but paired with her pale pink pocket blouse and suede brogues, the look is class and put-together.

Constance Jablonski kicked back at the WattsUp Rosé wine release in a pair of printed cut-offs, a navy tee, leather jacket and slip-ons. With beachy hair and a bare face, this is a look you don’t have to be a model to rock.

What do models wear when they’re getting a little ‘mommy and me’ time in? Lily Aldridge kept things casual in a graphic sweater and diamond-print Isabel Marant jeans.
This model mom took a break from the flashbulbs to attend her daughter Vivian’s baptism. Gisele Bundchen looked perfectly summery in a white Rebecca Minkoff blazer and floral print Mavi capris, a look that could’ve walked off the pages of a magazine.
When Kate Moss isn’t posing, she loves to dress down in whimsical, bohemian pieces. She was spotted leaving her London home wrapped up in a 70s-style poncho, which she perfectly paired with wooden heeled clogs. Her patterned Balenciaga bag elevated this hippy look.
Erin Wasson looked cool and laid-back at the Zadig & Voltaire Malibu store opening. The model did a masculine look in head-to-toe black with leather details and a carefree updo.
