As the paparazzi ardently pursues her, she strides forth with an unwavering gaze and a bold, confident step, elevated by her long, slender heels. This could be the only way to walk in an outfit like the one she donned. Taking the words from a classic, "in the right clothes, a woman feels different, walks differently, sits differently, and even speaks differently". Undeniably, this was one of those ensembles that made Gigi Hadid feel like a million dollars.

Delving into Color Depth

Bottle green, a hue that has forcefully embedded itself in fashion, has ceased to be merely associated with spruce or Christmas green. It has magnificently carved its spot in modern and retro-chic fashion. The color allows for delightful combinations of pink, violet, and light blue. However, when it completely engulfs a garment, it is truly unmatched.

The Model Never Looked Better

Gigi Hadid showed remarkable consistency by donning the green hue from head to toe, both metaphorically and literally. The star's shoes seemed seamlessly integrated with the trousers. The fashionable touch of a hood perfectly and originally rounded off the look.

The Glamour-style Hood: an 80s Revival

Glamour-style hoods have staged a comeback, accompanying dresses and pushing boundaries by incorporating leather textures. Gigi Hadid's jacket is a veritable piece of art. The design, featuring oversized shoulders, tapered cuffs, substantial lapels, and a waist-emphasizing belt with an elaborate XL hood, seems to draw heavily from the 80s and Grace Jones' avant-garde wardrobe of that time.

Gigi Hadid's Outfit: A Masterpiece

The oversized top half of Gigi Hadid's outfit, which captivates with precision tailoring, was crying out for slim-fitting bottoms. When paired with high heels and tight leather trousers, the model's legs seemed to extend skyward.

In contemporary fashion, where the absence of rules is the only rule, it's worth remembering to pair an oversized jacket with slim-fit trousers. This style has been somewhat neglected in recent years, despite its immense potential.
