While Miranda Kerr first caught our attention on catwalks and magazine covers, it's her street style that has us on constant Miranda watch. With a cool mix of polished pieces and laid-back essentials, Miranda makes outfitting for the everyday look easy — and a lot more exciting than the your average Monday-through-Friday ensembles. Sure, we've got a soft spot for her sexy red carpet dresses, but Miranda proves that even running errands can be a good reason to dress up. Her penchant for slick separates, like blazers and leather pants, mix perfectly with her softer sheer maxis, tailored trousers, and denim cutoffs for an off-duty uniform that we're dying to steal. For now, we'll settle for a style lesson — and it's all right here. Click on for 66 sleek street-style looks to be inspired by.
