Karlie Kloss makes a feature of her model proportions in a corset and leather trousers as she arrives for Shiatzy Chen SS17 show at PFW
At 6ft 1in, Karlie Kloss is usually head and shoulders above the crowd.
But the stunning catwalk model stood out for others reasons on Tuesday afternoon, as she drew attention to her lithe model proportions at the Shiatzy Chen SS17 show.
Karlie, 24, cinched in her waist with a Victoriana-style corset and added an essential rocky edge in leather trousers for her latest turn at Paris Fashion Week.

Model body: Karlie Kloss looked lithe in a Victoriana corset and leather trousers on Tuesday as she arrived for the Shiatzy Chen SS17 show at Paris Fashion Week
Karlie added yet more height to her frame in retro cowgirl boots, with her skintight trousers rolled up to meet them on the calf.
Her corset, meanwhile, cropped just short of her hips so that the trousers served to showcase her lithe model pins in their entirety.
The racy leather effect was quite a contrast to her ladylike ruffled lace blouse, which was completed with a silk bow at her neck.

She's usually walking the runway at Paris Fashion Week but for the Shiatzy Chen Spring/Summer 2017 catwalk show, Karlie Kloss was a front row guest instead.
The statuesque model arrived to the event dressed in a full look from the Fall 2016 collection that consisted of a ruffled blouse, cropped leather leggings and lace-up boots.
Karlie's top certainly had a vintage feel and with its layers of ruffles and corset-like bodice, we were getting a Victorian vibe as well.
It's not available anywhere online but we've got plenty of other options in the carousel below. From Ann Taylor and Nicopanda to Saint Laurent and Theory, there's one for every budget.
The model was joined by Neighbours actress Sarah Ellen, who stunned in a lace semi-sheer midi dress.
The pint-sized star rocked some silver crossover mules to inject a dose of sparkle to the ensemble.
Keeping good company, Karlie sat next to fashion editor Carine Roitfeld and Chinese actress Ma Sichun on the front row.

Vintage fashion certainly seemed to be Karlie's go-to on Tuesday, since she favoured an Eighties image earlier that day.
The American model successfully embraced her inner punk as she stepped out for a stroll between what have been consistent runway show appearances.
Opting for a cropped sequined jacket with distinctive, sharply defined shoulder pads, Karlie clearly had the power dressing élan of the nineteen-eighties in mind while assembling her latest ensemble.

High-slung, generously cut leather trousers added to the 80’s theme, while a simple white T-shirt – visible between the lapels of her jacket – balanced a look largely comprised of dark, sophisticated colour tones.
Strappy flats gave the retro look a contemporary twist, while heavily tinted sunglasses, Karlie’s only visible accessory, rounded things off.
A heavy application of dark red lipstick provided an added splash of colour, but its vibrant shade did not detract from the model’s stylish ensemble.

'I see what all of the best make-up artists in the world use. They're very informed and experienced so I almost get to be the guinea pig, I feel like I've learned a lot just by being in the chair. My best trick is the less-is-more approach.
'Really small things that make a big difference. I think it's actually harder to do less.'
