Ah, Paris. A city renowned for its unparalleled cultural offerings, its exquisite foods and its general sense of romance and refinement. Yet, that doesn't mean the city doesn't have a down and dirty side, and that even the fashion set can't help but indulge in it occasionally.
On Wednesday night, to wind off steam after a full day of shows, a who's who of modeling luminaries decided to hit up a strip club. Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Joan Smalls, Jasmine Sanders, and Lily Donaldson hit up Pink Paradise in Paris.
Mind you, this is not one of Paris's famed cabaret clubs like the Moulin Rouge or the Crazy Horse. It's an honest-to-god strip club that might not seem so out of place in, say, Tampa, Florida. Think less of the can-can and more pole dancing. The club's website describes it as "in the style of an American Lap dancing club but with a Parisian touch which attracted a high class and celebrity clientele."
Naturally, the pack on Instagram-famous models couldn't help but 'gram their shenanigans at the club.
Though, the girls seemed to be more interested in each other than the dancers. This appears to be Jenner's bootie and Sanders' slapping hand.
Heading out to a strip club with her besties seemed particularly fitting given the day Hadid had. The model walked the runway for H&M Studio. The show just so happened to feature a performance by her ex-boyfriend The Weeknd. Though there wasn't an encounter anywhere as dramatic as the former flames had at the Victoria's Secret Show, also held in Paris late last year. Hadid was said to keep her eyes straight ahead, and notably didn't walk down the runway dancing to the Weeknd's music like some of the other models did.
Elsewhere in the city on the same night, the Weeknd was spotted out and about with his new all-but-official flame Selena Gomez (Gomez, by the way, was not at the H&M show, but that could have as much to do with her deal with Coach as it does her current romantic endeavors). The singer hasn't appeared at any other show but Coach since signing the rumored $10 million deal).
Though, a strip club seems like as safe as bet as any if you're trying not to cross paths with a former Disney star newly in love.
E! News says that the model posse then hit up "Lark Nightclub" after their Pink Paradise excursion, but we figure they're actually referring to L'Arc, the Paris hotspot where Tyga, Jenner's sister Kylie's boyfriend, happened to be performing.
In any event, it seems like seedier nightlife options are becoming quite the obsession for the fashion crowd during PFW. Both buzzy brands Vetements and Hood By Air have held their shows in underground sex clubs in the city in recent years.
