Bella Hadid is fast becoming one of fashion’s biggest style chameleons. Earlier this week, the model accompanied Off-White designer Virgil Abloh to the 2017 CFDA Awards in a modern and slick spin on the ’80s power suit, before (accidentally) twinning with pop superstar Justin Bieber in Abloh’s plaid shorts, a collaboration with Umbro. Arriving in Paris earlier today, Hadid ushered in a fresh take on a familiar trend: Matrix-inspired style.
The younger Hadid’s penchant for futuristic dressing is well documented, from her metallic jackets and boots to uniforms. However, this black turtleneck top and white scallop-hem skirt felt simultaneously ladylike and fashion-forward. The black and white palette is classic Parisian cool, but the accessories lifted the ensemble to new directional heights. Square-edged shades kept prying paps at bay, while a bronze python shoulder bag brought sci-fi polish to the traditional micro lady bag. Grounding the look were charm-adorned strappy sandals to put a spring in Hadid’s step.
