Bella Hadid's Optical-Illusion Jeans Aren't Actually on Fire
Bella Hadid is playing tricks on our eyes in her latest streetwear look. On Monday, the supermodel stepped out on the streets of New York City outside the Marc Jacobs fashion show in a pair of graphic jeans that created the illusion of shredded denim. The “ripped” jeans were screen-printed with a singed design that made the front of both legs appear carefully tattered and torn, all the way down to Hadid’s lustrous white platform loafers. She styled the jeans with a black varsity jacket layered over a lettuce-trim crop top, as well as a button-up shirt, which she wrapped around her head like a scarf to cover her blunt micro bangs.
Looking effortlessly cool, Hadid also paired the low-rise jeans with a thin belt, black sunglasses, a mini JanSport backpack, and a pair of white headphones that made the midriff-baring look feel like a nod to 2004. The jeans themselves were two-toned, with one leg in a medium wash and the other in a slightly lighter shade. In some spots, the denim looked bleached or frayed, while other bits of fabric looked like they’d barely been rescued from Olivia Rodrigo’s ex-boyfriend’s bedroom in the “Good 4 U” music video.
Hadid wore the look the same day she was spotted rocking matching bowl-cut mullets and bleached eyebrows with her sister, Gigi Hadid, at the Marc Jacobs show. On the runway, Bella wore a voluminous black-and-white sleeveless ball gown made with Matrix-esque vinyl, while Gigi wore a dramatically oversize, ribbed-knit sweater in watermelon pink.
