Every fashion lover has a decade in which their personal style begins to gravitate. For Bella Hadid, the period is, without doubt, an affair. The 23-year-old model (whose 24th is right on us) never shy away from a Y2K-worthy look, whether it’s a pair of gradient shades, a warped hairstyle, or something else. This time, it’s Bella Hadid ‘s birthday outfit that’s invoking the decade, tapping into a couple of her hallmark trends at once. It’s good news for those who have struggled to pin down the retro personal style of the model, as this look is surprisingly imitable.
On Oct. 6, Hadid bounced from a hair session in Brooklyn to an early birthday dinner with friends in the city. While debuting her warm-up blowout, Hadid also unveiled a new moire-effect sheer top, featuring fabric panels and inside-out seam work. The thigh-length blouse is in line with the 2020 translucent mesh fashion, which first came from aught (think cowl neck tops and trompe l’oeil rollnecks). The top matched well with her lustrous indigo shade of tattered, light-washed denim, a favorite of hers from AGOLDE. The bottoms may be since the ’90s, but the distressed jeans just grew stronger , where “more is more” was the concept for rips and tatters.
Beyond clothing, no accessory packs a punch of ’00s nostalgia like a shoulder bag, which Hadid is always careful to include in her sets. For this look, she called Alexander Wang’s ‘Wangloc’ purse, the rhinestone embellishment of which was coordinated with her shimmering top. She asked for a few final touches, also in all-black: her mask (of course) and her pointed boots.
