Ask Bella Hadid what her favourite decade to sartorially reference is and you might be pleasantly surprised with the response.
Someone call Brigitte Bardot, because Bella has stolen her look.
Taking to the coastal city of Biarritz, Bella and her art director beau Marc Kalman brought the summer of love to the south of France. As Camille Charriere wrote on Bella’s Instagram post, the star makes Biarritz look hot.
While we’re unsure if this monochromatic moment is a jumpsuit, or rather an expertly paired two-piece set, Bella is making a case for capris and cut outs to make a comeback.
Of course, from the woman who pioneered the revival of some of the most gaudy early 2000s fashions, we’re not surprised by this move.
Featuring a stretchy-satin finish, cut out detailing and a wide belt, this look is giving main character energy in the best way possible.
Completing her look was a pair of oval sunglasses (think Kurt Cobain’s clout goggles, but instantly more stylish) and a snakeskin kitten heel mules.
However, it wouldn’t be a Bella outfit without the presence of a Y2K trend in one form or another.
Here, the outfit’s pièce de résistance was a mustard coloured Miu Miu silk scarf.
Thankfully, this accessory was a little less ‘useless skinny scarf’ à la Ashley Tisdale and more Grace Kelly in To Catch A Thief.
With most of Australia’s east coast finding themselves in Europe, we have no doubt that replicating this outfit is only one trip to the thrift store away.
And for those of us bracing the harsh winter at home? We’ll be patiently waiting for the summer sun to take this look transcontinental.
