To let her look do all of the talking, she styled parted her hair in the middle and styled it straight. For glam, The “Blick Blick” artist went with neutral makeup and a glossy pout. She kept her accessories simple, only adding a blinged out choker necklace.

Leray continued with a Y2K aesthetic by finishing off her outfit with thigh-high denim boots. The slouchy style had a slightly pointed toe and a circle patch on the calves. Often considered the sexiest boot silhouette, thigh-high boots most often stop mid-thigh for a leg-climbing look. Commonly made of leather or suede, thigh-high boots are most often worn with short skirts or shorts, dresses featuring high slits or very tight-fitting pants.
