Bella Hadid doesn’t just kill the track, she smashes it.
During Paris Fashion Week, the model made jaws drop at the Coperni fashion show on September 30 when she strutted down the catwalk shirtless, covering her breasts with her hands, while wearing underwear and bare heels.
When she reached center stage, Hadid stood tall and still as a team of three technicians painted a white layer of latex over her naked body.
As they sprayed the coat of paint, the 25-year-old raised her arms one by one as their work slowly transitioned into a midi dress with a high waisted slit. Once the artwork was complete, Hadid ferociously walked the runway showing off her new custom-made ensemble.
The dress was made from Fabrican, a sprayable fabric invented in 2003 that hardens into clothing. According to the company’s website, founder Manel Torres “envisioned a material that would magically fit the body like a second skin while having the appearance of clothing.” With years of research and experimentation culminating in the realization of sprayable fabric from an aerosol can, Fabrican was born.”
Bella Hadid’s Riskiest Looks
Hadid’s performance on the track is already going viral on TikTok. Some users also pointed to similarities between this one and Alexander McQueen’s iconic Spring 1999 fashion show, where model Shalom Harlow turned around as two robots sprayed yellow and black on her white dress.
After the show, Hadid shared several close-up images of the creation on her Instagram, which garnered a ton of praise from fans and fellow fashionistas. Lori Harvey commented, “AN ICON. THE MOMENT”, while Iris Law called the floaty dress “the best thing ever”.
Lizzo even weighed in on the tip, writing, “Let me borrow this when you’re done.”
The Coperni show comes just weeks after another of Hadid’s fashion moments nearly broke the internet. On September 19, photos of the model strolling the streets of New York wearing what appeared to be tight white underwear went viral.
The girl knows how to make a statement!
