Recently, Hailey Bieber has been blessing our Instagram feeds with even more of her statement style than usual. Not only has the model been dropping regular ‘dumps’—the word used to describe a carousel of images on the app, which Dua Lipa does better than almost anyone else—but she’s been enlisting her professional photographer friends to help out.
The result is stylised, high-res photos—as though it’s a magazine photoshoot—which Bieber then drops almost instantly to her millions of followers, sending us all, as she no doubt predicted, absolutely wild. Is this the future of the blogger? If so, we are very much on board.
A few weeks ago, it was a top-to-toe YSL ensemble made up of a velvet tuxedo jacket and the brand’s sparkly knee-high net boots in New York City that stopped us all in our tracks, which Bieber followed up quickly with more images in which she’d swapped her heels for a casual Prada loafer.
Then, last night for Las Vegas, Bieber opted for Schiaparelli, adding to the brand’s long list of recent celebrity endorsements, which includes Bella Hadid, Beyoncé and Emma Corrin since the Italian house appointed Daniel Roseberry as creative director.
Bieber, who was in the city to support her husband, Justin Bieber, who was performing at a three-day festival, opted for a black mini dress from Schiaparelli’s autumn/winter 2021 haute couture collection for her Saturday night. The satin blazer dress features gold mirrored sculptural detailing at the centre and oversized shoulder padding with long baggy sleeves to offset the micro hemline.
Bieber pulled her hair back into a sleek bun, posing beside a pool table in her hotel and captioning the gallery, “VEGA$$$.”
She finished off the look perfectly by adding dark square-framed sunglasses by Balenciaga (with double Bs on the side, likely something she was drawn to to represent both her and her husband’s last names), black pumps by Louboutin and oversized gold hoop earrings to match the detailing on her dress.
