This was the headline that ran through my mind when I saw the images of Bella Hadid’s latest runway show. In case you missed it, at the finale of the Coperni show, Bella Hadid walked to the middle of the runway — wearing only a G-string, holding her breasts — as two men began to spray her body with what appeared to be white paint.
And at first, I have to admit, I was inclined to agree. I mean, sure, it was a pretty daring move by the model, but was it really all that? The result was a dress that was, well, fine. And while I’m sure that was the point, I can’t help but feel like it was a bit of a cop-out.
Bella Hadid is a world-renowned model. She has graced the covers of some of the most popular magazines and has walked the runways for some of the biggest fashion designers in the world. In other words, she is considered a “supermodel” for a reason.
Bella is a stunning woman, but this dress did nothing for her. In fact, it made her look like she was trying too hard.
There’s something to be said for simplicity. And in the case of fashion, sometimes less is more. I would have much preferred to see Bella Hadid in a simple, elegant gown. Something that showed off her natural beauty, without all the bells and whistles.
This is one opinion that you’ll find plenty of people agreeing with. There are those who would argue that the spray dress is actually a work of art. One way or the other, it is definitely not “futuristic”, regardless of the purpose of the stunt.
There are already a few companies working on developing digital fabric, and it is only a matter of time before this technology goes mainstream. Digital clothes will also be more interactive than traditional clothes. For example, you will be able to control the level of warmth or cooling of your clothing with the touch of a button. You will also be able to receive notifications and access information on your clothing.
Digital clothes are next, and will be a game-changer in the fashion industry. So start planning your future wardrobe today!
