It’s been a great year for Bella Hadid on and off the runway. Not only was she cast as a Victoria’s Secret model for the first time — living out the ultimate breakup fantasy as she strutted past The Weeknd — but she also made the streets her own catwalk as well.

On Friday night, Hadid added to her long list of daring outfit highlights with black and white lace-up trousers and a matching jacket by the emerging designer Wesley Berryman. She paired them perfectly with a slashed crop top, which highlighted her post-Victoria’s Secret washboard body, plus sleek long braids to top off the look.

The occasion was a party hosted by Paper magazine in partnership with Tidal to celebrate her steamy new cover. Hadid’s close friend Justine Skye serenaded the supermodel with a concert that night, with Luka Sabbat, Shamari Maurice, and Keke Palmer in the crowd as well. The outfit was a fitting choice, as the exact look was used in the Paper spread, which was styled by Farren Fucci. Hadid proved on Friday night, however, that she’s capable of rocking a high-fashion look no filter, too.
