When most of us were sunk into the couch, recovering from one too many sugar cookies and cups of eggnog, Irina Shayk jetted around the streets of New York City on Christmas Day, seemingly playing the part of Santa—albeit an uber posh one. The Russian model was photographed toting around a number of wrapped presents, on route to what was perhaps a very, merry party. Indeed, she certainly dressed for the occasion.
The 33-year-old mum (her two-year-old daughter Lea is with former beau Bradley Cooper), wore a streamlined black trench coat over red flannel trousers—think female lumberjack meets European royalty (à la young Princess Margaret). She accessorised these pieces with sunglasses by Celine, a black bag by Hermès, and a pair of black, pointed-toe slingbacks with ribbons at the ankle by Reformation (Dhs800).
What Shayk showed was a festive look done the right way. She chose a motif representative of the holiday—in this case, red flannel—and combined them with sleek styles that balanced out the whole look. It is, to be sure, not easy to pull off a pattern associated with Paul Bunyan, but she managed to do just that by keeping everything else graceful and unfussy.
