The 2017 Airport Style Awards
While red carpets might be pretty spectacles, airports are not to be overlooked when it comes to spotting amazing celebrity style. If you’ve ever traveled before, you know that it’s not easy to look good while lugging around bags and rushing to catch your flight. However, the celebrities who manage to do so (even looking chic, too) deserve some serious honors, as far as we’re concerned.
Want to copy your favorite celebrity’s travel style? We’ve compiled a list of some of their best airport looks that exhibit ease, stylishness, and, of course, comfort. After all, no one wants to sprint through a crowded airport in lace-up stilettos or sit uncomfortably in a skintight ensemble for an entire flight.
Below, see the 10 celebrities who always travel in style.
Mastery in Cozy and Cool
In Rihanna’s world, any occasion is one to dress up in a creative ensemble. But what we appreciate most is her love for all things oversize and cozy when it comes to traveling. She’s a girl after our own hearts.
On Rihanna: Oliver Peoples + The Row Empire Suite Sunglasses; Off-White x Jimmy Choo S/S 18 boots
A+ Accessory Game
Who else can balance two handbags, sunnies, oversize hoops, and a sleek pair of pointed boots and still manage to stroll through the airport like a pro? Chrissy Teigen can, that’s who.
Most Proficient in Prints
Get into the habit of thinking of leopard as more of a neutral than a tricky-to-style print. When paired with a classic top like a striped T-shirt, the combination feels impactful without being over-the-top. Kudos to Dakota Johnson for nailing a travel look that wears well before, during, and after a long plane ride.
On Dakota Johnson: Saint Laurent SL 1 Flat Top Sunglasses ($380)
Coolest Coordinating Style
Best Foolproof Legging Ensemble
Ashley Graham’s all-black ensemble is a never-fail solution for a chic, comfortable airport look. Plus, it’s easy to replicate. Just pair your favorite stretchy pants with a tied-up tee and a robe coat, then top off your look with some stylish sneakers. You’ll find yourself throwing this outfit on for all of your early morning flights.
On Ashley Graham: Adidas Originals sneakers
Rookie of the Year
Kaia Gerber’s catwalk debut earlier this year has put her on the style radars of many. Along with her new jet-setting modeling career comes a chic travel wardrobe that defines the effortless, off-duty model style.

Chicest, TSA-Friendly Footwear
We’re constantly seeing Blake Lively in her Gucci slip-ons at the airport—and for a good reason. These of-the-moment loafers are perfect for slipping on and off through TSA checkpoints, are polished yet comfortable, and most importantly, they’re Gucci.
On Blake Lively: Gucci Black Tiger and Pierced Heart Princetown Slippers ($995)
Best Use of Fast Fashion
Who else was pleasantly surprised to find out that Kourtney Kardashian’s sparkly ensemble came straight from H&M? Of course these pieces have sold out already, but they’ve inspired us to keep a closer eye on the brand’s new arrivals.
