When it come getting to and from the airport, celebrities are on a different plane (BOOM, coming in HOT) than the rest of us. While some believe that sweatpants and Uggs are the appropriate attire when waiting around the Cinnabon to board, frequent flyers Rihanna, the Olsens, Miranda Kerr, Victoria Beckham, and more of that ilk have a different idea as to what flies at the airport.
We've split their outfit choices into "Dressed Down" and "Dressed Up" for perusing convenience. Dressed down is defined as "wearing relatively comfortable-looking pants and shoes that couldn't be readily used as a serious weapon" and by other hyper-scientific methods. Dressed up is some sort of leather/skirt/heels/baby combination. Either way, it's rare that these women don't look perfectly pulled together, so see below for some runway inspiration.
