Bella Hadid's Runway G-String Is A Sign Of Things To Come
The runway is where many fashion trends are born. And we're praying to the fashion gods this isn't a sign of what's to come.
Let's get straight to the point. I don't know a woman anywhere who still wears a g-string. And if I do, they're keeping awfully quiet.
Yet supermodel Bella Hadid, 22, not only wore a g-string on the runway, someone thought it was a good idea to turn it into a bedazzled fashion accessory, having it sling around her hips and the outside of her pants with two gold Versace buckles either side.
Hadid was walking in Versace's spring 2020 menswear show on Saturday in Milan when she featured the look. And too be honest, I don't even want to check the price tag of this piece of intimate apparel because it probably more than should be allowed.
Despite this, Hadid is not the only celebrity to do it. The real person to blame for this fashion trend that would never be achievable by a mere mortal is Hailey Baldwin, 22, who wore a pink Alexander Wang gown with a matching g-string to the 2019 Met Gala.
Instead of inspiring us to do the same, it gave us a flashback to this iconic moment in Australian television history. That's where the g-string should have stayed.
I'd say it's defined to the Gen Z models except... it's not. In November last year, Jennifer Lopez, 49, was also photographed wearing matching g-string trousers for a music video shoot in Miami beach.
And let's not forget Kim Kardashian, 38, who wore a vintage Gucci g-string last October that even second hand could retail up to $1800.
Even Rihanna, 31, being the businesswoman that she is has capitalised on the trend, selling g-string charms as part of her Savage X Fenty "Xcessories" launch where they were featured alongside handcuffs, whips and nipple pasties.
I'm yet to see this trend attempted by someone who isn't a celebrity and honestly, we should keep it that way. Ladies, can we please promise to keep our g-strings in our pants where they belong?
I'd say this would be in our pants. But they don't even do that. I've seen far too many of them in my lifetime popping out of the back of pants when someone bends over.
So really, there's no place for a g-string but at the back of your undies drawer where they should never see the light of day again. That is unless you're turning to it in despair because everything else is in the wash.
