Liya Kebede Cocoons Herself In Proenza Schouler

The Ethiopian model-activist wears a Fall 2016 runway ensemble to the opening night of the 7th annual Women in the World summit.

Liya Kebede

Who: Liya Kebede.

When: Wednesday, April 6.

Where: The 7th annual Women in the World summit at Lincoln Center in New York City.

What: A Proenza Schouler grey wrap jacket, beige pants, and bag from the Fall 2016 collection.

Why: Kebede stepped out in Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez‘s daring designs at last year’s Mad Max: Fury Road premiere in Cannes. Never one to repeat herself, here, Kebede selects an androgynous look from the Fall 2016 runway that proves she can make a layers-on-layers knitwear ensemble work just as effortlessly as glitter and cut-outs. Plus, it looks really comfy, like a very chic cocoon.
