Here are some photos of Gigi Hadid out and about in New York yesterday. This isn’t really her street-style – she was going to an event, and she just happily pap-strolled on the street ahead of the event so everyone could see her outfit. The ensemble is being called “rock ‘n roll Barbie” by her stylist. I am not feeling it. The leather suit is Kreist fall/winter 2017, and the platform shoes are by Aquazzura (they cost $950). I actually think Gigi is a really beautiful young woman, but this is not her best look, and I’m saying that as someone who doesn’t mind a fuller-legged trouser. Like, I enjoy a pair of pants with a flare. But this is just full bell-bottom, correct? I also feel like the jacket is TOO cropped.
Another problem I have with this is that it’s in a dreadful shade of Millennial Pink. By now, you’ve seen all of the thinkpieces on Millennial Pink and how the color is either The Color of the Decade or Already Over. I don’t mind pink in general, nor do I mind Millennial Pink in moderation. But the color isn’t happening in moderation, at all. It’s everywhere. It’s overdone. It’s on every book cover, dress, Pinterest and wedding. The combination of the Millennial Pink + Gigi Hadid feels like everything in these photos was manufactured in a lab by cautious tastemakers.
