Winnie Harlow was in a festive mood, wearing a vibrant red jumpsuit while cheering on her boyfriend, Kyle Kuzma, on Tuesday during the Washington Wizards vs. Orlando Magic game at Capital One Arena.
Known for her penchant for daring and colorful looks that often mix high-street and high-end pieces, Harlow radiates undeniable confidence in whatever she wears, both on and off the runway.
Her most recent outing was no different. The 29-year-old America’s Next Top Model alum embraced her individuality in a bright red jumpsuit teamed with red heels and a feathered jacket.

Winnie Harlow highlighted her 5’9” stature in a festive red wool jumpsuit with a polo-style bodice that featured a collar, white buttons, and long ribbed cuffs. The bottom part of the striking ensemble featured a pair of fitted pants that accentuated her long, slim model legs.
Winnie teased her cleavage and red lace bra by partially unbuttoning the top half of her outfit, giving her otherwise modest look a sensual touch.
For a seamless finish, she slipped her feet into a pair of gleaming red pumps with pointed toes and towering stiletto heels, boosting her already statuesque height by several inches.

Harlow added some glitz to her red monochromatic ensemble by fastening a pair of chunky gold floral-shaped earrings to her ears and securing a Van Cleef & Arpels “Alhambra” necklace around her neck.
The iconic Alhambra creations are characterized by their timeless elegance, staying true to the Alhambra jewel initially designed in 1968. They boast the French luxury jewelry company’s iconic lucky charm motif inspired by the shape of the four-leaf clover.
Harlow’s necklace had ten clover leaf motifs in white mother-of-pearl set in 18k yellow gold with a border of golden beads.

Winnie also wore a thick, feathery jacket in the same red hue draped over her arms, adding to the festive atmosphere of her ensemble. At one point, she was seen clutching the eye-catching outerwear while striking a pose courtside.
She then wore bright red nails and covered her eyes with rimless red sunglasses with thick red temples.
For her glam, Harlow sported long, curly extensions that reached her chest and highlighted her stunning facial features with minimal makeup, including mascara and nude lip gloss.

How Did Kyle Kuzma and Winnie Harlow Meet?
Kyle Kuzma and Winnie Harlow have been going steady since they began dating in April 2020. Harlow told People that one of the reasons their relationship works is that “Kyle is such a relationship guy. He’s so All-American, super sweet.”
According to Harlow, the NBA player slid into her DMs, but she “had never seen it.”
“I got a DM a year prior from my boyfriend, and I had never seen it. I don’t know what was the glitch in the system with Instagram is but that never came up for me.”
Persistent, the Washington Wizards player DMed Harlow again a year later, and thankfully, she’s seen it. “A year later, at the top of quarantine, he DMed me again. He posted a picture of me in, like, an outfit. I was like, ‘Oh, hi.’ He shot his shot, you know. He slid in the DMs. So that was cute.”

After a month of talking on FaceTime, “24 hours, every single day,” Harlow made a “very spontaneous” decision to move to Los Angeles from Brooklyn, New York to spend more time with Kuzma as he was still with the Los Angeles Lakers at the time.
“He was like, ‘You gotta come to LA,’ and I’ve been in LA ever since.”
“It was like making a leap of faith. Being in the pandemic, you had time to learn about somebody and get to know someone more than you did in regular life when we have work and so many things pulling us in different directions.”

Quarantining with Kuzma at the time, Harlow recalled how they made their relationship official.
“I had just been out here with him during quarantine and no one really knew at the time. I was getting ready for bed and my process is very long.”
“I have serums. I have my bonnet. My shower takes half an hour. I’m just winding down. I was taking a really long time and he was like, ‘Can I cuddle with my girlfriend?’ And I was like, ‘Girlfriend. Oh, okay, sure. There we go. I guess it’s a wrap now. Hang up my jersey.’ [That’s] how we ended up in a relationship.”
