Chunky jewelry and spectator brogues anchor floaty organza and silk. King, who started modeling at 14, says she learned about fashion from the greatest of teachers: the couture designers—Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld—who dressed her for the runway. "These amazing people taught me about fit and proportion."
Tip from O Creative Director Adam Glassman: Mix menswear-inspired pieces with feminine glamour—think cocktail rings, shoulder-baring tops—for the most modern look.
