Today we’d like to talk about understated elegance, and one of the models who embodies it the most is undoubtedly Kaia Gerber.

I’ve been meaning to write about her ensemble for last year’s Academy Museum Gala for the longest time and I finally found the time to do it. Let’s dive into it.

For the Gala, Gerber donned a plum and black Alaïa draped skirt and sheer turtleneck body from the Spring 2023 Ready-to-Wear collection, paired with Jimmy Choo black patent leather Azia 110 sandals.

The chicest accessory was her Alaïa minaudiere bag in aluminium with detachable chain and side magnetic closure.

Her makeup was courtesy of Raoúl Alejandre and consisted in a light wash of dark purple eyeshadow, with a hint of lilac glittery eyeshadow on the inner corners to open up the eyes. Feathery brows, combed and curved lashes plus a glossy lip were the final touch.

The hair was styled by Bryce Scarlett in a sleek, deep side part, keeping up with the streamlined vibe of the outfit.

Some people do fare incredibly well with simplicity and collaborating with stylist Danielle Goldberg is a guarantee of success when it comes to that.

It could be Saint Laurent, Celine, Loewe or Proenza Schouler, if you are a fashion connoisseur, Goldberg is who you need.

Kaia has looked her best since embarking on a working relationship with the stylist, we cannot deny it.


The Academy Museum Gala is an event dedicated to celebrating the art and history of film.

Last year, the Gala was presented by Rolex, and marked the one-year anniversary of the Academy Museum, the largest museum in the United States devoted to the arts, sciences, and artists of moviemaking.

They honored four artists of the filmmaking business: Miky Lee (executive producer for Parasite and Snowpiercer); Tilda Swinton, Michael Clayton, director Steve McQueen and Julia Roberts, recipient of the Icon Award.

According to Variety, over $10 millions were collected in donations during the night.
