Bella Hadid has made her mark as the indisputable queen of Paris Fashion Week this season. First, she went viral after modeling a Coperni look that was spray painted onto her body mid-show. Then on Monday, the model made another memorable appearance by walking in British fashion designer Stella McCartney‘s Spring/Summer 2023 collection in a completely sheer catsuit.
The designer tapped the 25-year-old to take her see-through second skin look down the runway, drenched in shimmering embellishments. She matched the other models who paraded down the colorful runway with a pair of sand-colored netted mesh high heels, sporting a fresh-faced beauty look with bleached eyebrows.
She also modeled a second look as well, wearing a black vest and low-rise black trousers with embellished pelvic cutouts.
As a leading force in fashion’s sustainability efforts, McCartney’s ready-to-wear assortment was created out of 87% of conscious materials, making the collection her most ecologically responsible to date.
In hot demand this Paris Fashion Week, Hadid has traipsed the runways of Thom Browne, Sacai, Givenchy, Vivienne Westwood, Victoria Beckham, Isabel Marant and most memorably, Coperni.
Coperni co-founders Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant tapped Hadid to deliver what was arguably the most talked-about moment of the season. Hadid closed the Spring/Summer 2023 presentation by emerging in nothing but a beige thong. She then stood in front of technicians who began spraying the model with a white mist, that eventually transformed into an off-the-shoulder midi dress, complete with a thigh-high slit. Hadid then took a stroll down the runway in the freshly crafted creation.
The founders took to Instagram to thank their muse. “Thank you @bellahadid for this magical moment that will stay engraved in our minds and hearts forever,” wrote the Coperni designers. “Thank you for your trust, love and the most mind blowing performance. We are so proud of what we created all together. None of this would have been possible without Manel Torres and his talent. When fashion meets technology 🤍.”
Hadid responded, “There is no singular person more important than the next. Only together can we make magic …. Thank you for all of the love …. I am still speechless!🤍.”
She went on to reveal that the pivotal moment was not even rehearsed beforehand in another post. “No rehearsal, no nothing, just passion 🖤,” wrote Hadid.
With a day left on the Paris Fashion Week schedule, we can’t wait to see what’s next for Hadid.
