When she’s not busy juggling her international supermodel status, serving as a mental health advocate and setting several red carpets aflame with her show-stopping looks, it seems Bella Hadid managed to squeeze in time for yet another hobby — singlehandedly reviving all of our favorite Y2K trends.
Often spotted sporting old-school styles like graphic t-shirts, low-rise jeans and trucker hats, the model recently expanded her horizons, bringing yet another trend from the pages of our old Limited Too catalogs into the 2022 fashion lexicon: The halter dress.
Earlier this week, the star took to Instagram to share several snaps depicting her standing on a balcony sporting a white bedazzled halter gown accessorized with a series of chunky gold bracelets and matching rings.
“Purely me… fresh out of bed,” she captioned her makeup-free carousel, which has since garnered north of one million Likes.
But even before Hadid stepped out in the look, halter tops were slowly making a comeback: Last year, the publication Who What Wear even dubbed the neckline “Summer's #1 Micro-Trend.” But unlike its predecessors, Hadid's take on the trend is distinctly Y2K. Featuring an airy, backless structure and aughts-inspired bedazzled details, the gown seemingly offers a modern, high-fashion homage to the old-school Justice halter dresses of the 2000s.
Yet Hadid's status as a Y2K fashion trailblazer is no coincidence. Beyond her extensive experience in the fashion world, Hadid is confident in her personal style, seemingly developing a hyper-focus for what she knows will work — which evidently includes effortlessly cool throwback trends.
“I’m dead-on. I know what I like," Hadid explained in her April cover story for Vogue. "I always have, since I was young. And I’ve never drifted.”
