With a dizzying schedule, Gigi Hadid has been working the Paris Fashion Week runways – I loved her Balmain looks – and who needs sleep when Rihanna is throwing her Fenty x Puma after party? Gigi certainly didn’t, and she showed yet again just why she’s who everyone is talking about.
Coincidentally timed on the same night as Project Runway’s Blacklight or Daylight? episode, Gigi wore a dress that would have completely fit into the theme of the show – a fluorescent yellow-green mock turtleneck midi dress with cutout panels tied together with white laces…. I won’t give away any spoilers. But for those of you who saw the episode, the parallel of the lace up motif (although executed differently) must make you smirk just a tiny little bit.
Cryptic side notes over, I am loving this look on Gigi, which is so unexpected, but it works. The silhouette is lean rather than bodycon, which would be too much with the color and the lacing. And the white lacing instead of any color or texture is a perfect edit. I think there was a lot of restraint shown here in this look, and that’s why the color works. Otherwise, it would have gone off the rails. Not many people can pull it off – it’s young, fun, and vibrant, and meant for someone who lives that lifestyle. Gigi is definitely that girl.
