Rumors of the return of supermodel Gigi Hadid to the runway have been swirling for about a week before an official confirmation arrived. Last weekend, all that anticipation and patience paid off, and the excitement was definitely worth it, as Gigi Hadid returned to modeling from maternity leave more glorious than ever. Hadid made her highly anticipated comeback on the Versace runway, although it wasn’t precisely a runway, but rather a kind of deceptive dice maze. The supermodel made her return grand with two dramatic looks.
Hadid’s first look concluded a black maxi dress combined with a shimmering monogram with hot platform heels, and for her second look, Hadid wore an ensemble that included a small top, black skirt, and a jacket with an unforgettable lining. These two looks were accompanied by Gigi’s long and straight hair, in a perfect reddish blonde shade that shone under a jeweled bandana, as well as stunning beauty work that focused mostly on electrifying blue eyeshadow.
Naturally, the new mother received the initial attention, but then the aunt arrived. Bella Hadid, in a style that is far from your typical aunt, burned the runway, as usual, with three fierce looks – from a sleeveless top and a zipper that clings to her body over a low skirt, through a pink total look, to the shortest dress we saw in a while with a shiny metallic texture and a loose and ultra-sexy cut. The latter being a thick hint of the micro-mini trend that you should start anticipating.
Others who graced the Versace runway included Irina Shayk who was stunning as always, the mesmerizing Precious Lee in a tulle dress that will come to us in our dreams, and the mega-cool Mica Argañaraz who helped Bella Hadid with her dress. Overall, the whole collection was a powerful glam-laden display from Donatella Versace, and we have no doubt we’ll see its impact this summer in various fashion retailers: the bandanas, platform heels, the 70-ish prints, the low and loose cuts, and as mentioned – the “minist” mini-dress. So, what did you think of this year’s collection? And the trends that it prophesies for this summer?
