Whitney Port at the Lucas Nascimento show during London Fashion Week
Since the TV show, Whitney, 30, has firmly established herself as a fashion force to be reckoned with. Not only has she worked for designers including Diane Von Furstenberg, but she launched her own clothing line Whitney Eve and repeatedly turns heads at events with her colourful and elegant outfits.
A firm fixture on the front row at Fashion Week, all eyes were on Whitney as she arrived for the Lucas Nascimento show at Somerset House in London wearing a daring grey backless gown by the designer. The former reality TV star accessorised with a chic black box clutch featuring a gold clasp, and completed the look with a pair of black pointed stilettos. To complement her high fashion ensemble, Whitney kept her hair and make-up simple. She rocked a slick of pale pink lipstick and blusher for a fresh-faced complexion, and wore her glossy blonde tresses down in tousled waves.
Whitney at the Style Stalking book launch
It's not the first time that the Californian beauty has turned heads at London Fashion Week. Stepping out for the ISSA show, Whitney was the epitome of autumn chic in a black-and-white horse-print dress, which she paired with a striking structured orange coat to keep out the winter chill.
Whether she's on the front row, off duty or attending a glitzy event, Whitney is renowned for her fearless approach to bold colours and striking prints. Jaws dropped when she stepped out for the book launch of Style Stalking, oozing high fashion in a cutaway splatter-patterned blue, black and pink dress, which she teamed with a pair of black and pink strappy heels. As she arrived for the launch, Whitney was also spotted wearing a jacket that matched her dress and featured sheer black sleeves for ultimate laidback cool.
