How to rock the model off-duty look this summer

Being a model isn't all catwalks and magazine covers. With the pandemic putting a hold on fashion shows and in-person photoshoots, models are forced to do their own hair and makeup for at-home shoots. But their off-duty ensembles are still as fabulous as ever, and a masterclass in styling summer staples. Scroll on for major fashion inspo from some iconic rising models.
