    Fashion designer and former Spice Girls member Victoria Beckham once said, "I can't concentrate in flats!" Clearly, she stays concentrated even while traveling, since the style icon always looks impeccable when spotted at an airport — and, of course, she's always propped atop a pair of high heels. In October 2015, she looked red-hot at Los Angeles International Airport in a pair of flared vermilion trousers, a sharp button-down blouse, a classic plaid coat, and oversize shades.

    Model Gigi Hadid took the athleisure trend to new heights in January 2016, when she flew from Paris to Los Angeles. The model donned a black Versace sweatshirt with neon lettering over black leggings with sheer side panel details, then added a polished white coat over the sporty ensemble to add an elegant touch. Her messy topknot and pointed-toe Chelsea boots completed the look, which epitomized off-duty cool.

    Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr's airport outfits always get a green light from fashion critics — and that's certainly true of this ensemble, which the model wore in October 2016 while strolling through the Charles de Gaulle Aiport in Paris. The model turned heads in a shimmering emerald green blouse, mid-rise distressed jeans, a black Gucci belt with gold accents, and black Gucci loafers that lent the outfit a borrowed-from-the-boys touch. Her black coat, which she wore draped over her shoulders, added a dramatic touch.
