It’s been a very busy week for Karlie Kloss, who had the Elle Style Awards and the BRIT Awards on top of London and Milan Fashion Weeks to attend. Perhaps in order to have a clear demarcation between her two awards show engagements, the 23-year-old supermodel decided to wear all-white and all-black outfits at each event. Clever idea.

Karlie’s all-white outfit consisted of a sheer lace bra overlaid with a cutaway halter dress. The high-low hem with a long, tiered-ruffle back made it seem as if she was wearing tailcoat instead of a frock. She rounded out her Alexander McQueen spring 2016 ensemble with white tuxedo pants and embroidered woven platform sneakers. A jeweled body harness that crisscrossed across the model’s torso topped everything off.

Knowing black is fashion’s favorite color, Karlie reserved her all-black ensemble for the 2016 Elle Style Awards. She was a tall drink of water in her Stella McCartney pre-fall 2016 long-sleeved gown with a short train. A nude corset kept the gown’s plunging neckline modest, while a wide, gold-buckled belt accentuated her tiny waist.

Long spike earrings and a Jimmy Choo box clutch served as her golden accessories. On her feet were Tamara Mellon “Vertigo” pumps in rich black velvet.

White is usually associated with good and black with evil, but, we gotta say, Karlie’s all-white getup was a lot naughtier than her all-black outfit! All that lace was very risqué and the platform sneakers were a quirky choice of footwear. Meanwhile, her all-black ensemble was very sophisticated and elegant.

Which of Karlie’s outfit do you prefer, the all-white or the all-black?
