Bella Hadid, apparently a childhood fan of Bulgari jewelry, was named the new face of the brand’s accessories line earlier this month. She took a break from her many, many runway appearances to sit down for dinner with Bulgari at a party during Milan Fashion Week, along with fellow It models and scions like Lottie Moss, Caroline Vreeland, and Winnie Harlow. Hadid must really have taken a liking to the Vauthier dress she wore for the occasion, because she had actually worn it before — walking the runway at Vauthier’s Spring 2017 couture show. It was a Vauthier moment on the red carpet at Cannes that put Hadid on the international style radar, and, it seems, it’s to Vauthier she’ll always return when in need of some off-the-runway inspiration.
Who: Bella Hadid.
When: Thursday, February 23.
Where: A dinner party celebrating Bulgari with Winnie Harlow, Lottie Moss, Caroline Vreeland, and more, in Milan, Italy.
What: A silver chain mail minidress with one long sleeve from Alexandre Vauthier’s Spring 2017 couture collection. And Bulgari jewelry, because of course.
Why: On one of her previous trips this side of the pond — just less than a month ago — Hadid actually wore the same look. Only last time she was in Europe, she wore it on the runway. Here, she styles it with a sleek center-parted updo, rather than the décontracté waves that finished the look on the runway. It’s the perfect look for the Bulgari dinner, because it’s practically a piece of jewelry itself, all sheer chain mail draped over her lithe frame and paired with a Bulgari choker coiled around her neck (highlighted by that aforementioned bun). It’s glamorous and attention-grabbing and very, very ’80s — it might have shown in Paris, but it’s just the thing for a night on the town in Milan, with its newly revitalized club scene.
After a long day, Bella Hadid loves to take a snorkel in a bubble bath:
