Elsa Hosk – Health Care

Elsa Hosk


Because most of us sit here still freezing our buns off, we’re not really thinking of incorporating spring garb into our wardrobes just yet. It’s hard to break from the all-black and neutral aesthetic we’ve grown accustomed to in the cold weather, but, according to Elsa Hosk, this is another way. Elsa Hosk’s latest Instagram street style has just proven to us all that you can stay nice and cozy while also giving off the springiest of vibes.

Sure, maybe the model’s look isn’t necessarily perfect for 30 degrees and below, but it’ll do on a chilly day when the snow has yet to hit. Wearing a gorgeous light green matching set and light blue jacket, Elsa Hosk is bringing us all the best parts about spring—in the dead of winter. The green reminds me of picnics in the park, sitting in the soft grass and not worrying about the sun going down at 4 PM. The light blue looks like the perfect spring sky—clear and beautiful. Maybe I’m just longing for some warm weather right now, or maybe that’s just the power of Elsa Hosk’s Tokyo outfit. The world may never know.

Of course, what’s a trip to Tokyo without your pals? Elsa Hosk and other celebs have been traveling Tokyo with Revolve, and all the outfits have been *chef’s kiss.* Hosk even made khakis look sartorially acceptable (and spring-y!), which is a major accomplishment in my book. Paired with a pink collared top and brown jacket, the model once again brought the air of spring into the middle of winter. Applause all around.

It can’t all be pastels and warm vibes, though. Elsa Hosk’s wintry ensemble from the Tokyo trip is definitely not meant for spring, but it’s a stunning look nonetheless. When I grow up, I want to be Elsa Hosk—or at least have her closet.

During all my years of childhood, there were few VHS tapes that got more playtime than my copy of The Little Mermaid. As a young tot (and an adult, TBH) I was utterly fascinated and intrigued by the aesthetic of a life below the sea—the colors, shiny mermaid tale vibes, big musical numbers by fish friends. And Elsa Hosk’s NYFW amfAR Gala outfit was the perfect example of how to bring those dreamy aesthetics into real life (without looking like you’re just a gal who used to be obsessed with Ariel from The Little Mermaid). Achieving an ideal mermaid vibe is difficult, but Elsa Hosk has managed to do it perfectly. Are we even surprised?

While attending the annual amfAR Gala—which supports AIDS research—Elsa Hosk donned the most gorgeous metallic Rick Owens dress. Rick Owens, in case you’re not familiar with the designer, is known for his wild runways. If you’ve ever seen aliens model during a fashion week, it was probably while wearing Rick Owens’ designs. His looks are always edgy and cool, so it comes as no surprise that this metallic and mermaid-y dream of a dress is a Rick Owens piece.

Plus, the metallic gown has pockets, which is more than I can say for the majority of dresses in my closet right now. I think Ariel would totally approve of this dress—and maybe even wear it if she was in her human form in 2020. Elsa Hosk rocking the dress, though, is good enough for me. A modern day mermaid, if you will.

Of course, you could also say that this Rick Owens gown has more alien vibes than it does mermaid ones, and I would respect the opinion. On a Rick Owens runway, the dress probably did look much more extra-terrestrial. At the end of the day, it’s all up to interpretation. And isn’t that was fashion is these days, anyway?
