Hi! Hello. Hey!
So here’s the thing. I ain’t going be here for a long time, namely because you’re about to watch me try to concoct an entire story out of pink leather.
But I did come – ha, obviously – for a good time. Namely because of the pink leather thing. And Gigi Hadid. And farshun. Oh, and journalism too.
You can imagine, I bet, when Gigi Hadid steps out in the kind of outfit I would dare only to dress my old Bratz dolls in, it’s best to draw attention to it. Even write an ode to it.
So, here, I present to you the best outfit of 2017 as decided by me. (Also known as one with no expertise but enough ego to think I have the power to.)
Bella Hadid, sister of Gigi and also wearer of the odd solid outfit, put it better than perhaps I ever could.
“GIGI YOU ARE LIZZIE MCGUIRE FINALLY WE DREAMT OF THIS MOMENT (or maybe only I did) HOLT [sic] SH*T YESSSSS @GIGIHADID U R LIFEEEEE,” she
wrote yelled on Instagram.
For reference, Bella isn’t too far off the mark when it comes to claiming Gigi stole Lizzie McGuire’s look. Here is Lizzie, in all her glory and in her self-titled movie, donning a pantsuit that is equal parts ridiculous and inspiring:
Gigi's suit in question (which was absolutely not made of leather the more I think about it) was created by up-and-coming designer Kreist, and paired with pink velvet Aquazzura platforms.
The model was on her way to the official launch party for her collaboration with Vogue Eyewear in New York, pairing the kit with a pair of sunglasses that made her look suspiciously - and perhaps deliberately - like Barbie.
And, well, that's all there was to it.
What's the bet this a trend that never catches on?
RIP all of us.
Why are we being fed a diet of unicorns and pink?
