Hailey Bieber Wears Form-Fitting Cut Out Gown In Chocolate Brown
Model and influencer Hailey Bieber attended the star-studded Academy Museum Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday night, and even in a parade of fashion and celebrity, she managed to make a splash. The 25-year-old wife of pop artist Justin Bieber was draped in a form-fitting dress by Saint Laurent in a dark chocolate brown shade.
The strapless ruched top opened into a diamond cut out just below Hailey’s bust under a twisted knot, revealing her toned abs, before reconnecting to the long column skirt that pooled around her feet. She wore the look with a gold choker necklace and left her long brunette hair down, making it more notable how perfectly it matched her dress.
For makeup, Hailey went with a glossy nude lip and smokey eye, allowing her flawless complexion to carry the look.
This was the second fundraiser/gala for the Academy Museum, and the event also served as an opportunity to award its members for their distinctions in the entertainment industry. Julia Roberts received the first-ever Icon Award this year. Other honorees included Tilda Swinton, Steve McQueen, and Miky Lee, who also serves as the vice chair of the Academy Museum board. The event was chaired by Lupita Nyong’o and Halle Berry along with Ryan Murphy and Jason Blum.
The evening was naturally full of celebs, including Selena Gomez. Hailey and Gomez have often been connected through Justin, as he and the Only Murders In the Building star had an off-and-on relationship for years before he married Hailey.
In an interview on Call Her Daddy, Hailey said of the past drama, “It’s hard for me to talk about this because I don’t want to talk on either one of their behalf, again, because it was their relationship, and I honestly respect that very deeply.”
She added, “I just feel like there’s a little bit of that anxiety of people will probably take it the wrong way or I just don’t want to say something that is being disrespectful or bringing up something that can stir up feelings for someone. I know that we’re just all so moved on from any type of drama, and I’m so happy for that so I get nervous about talking about it because I don’t want to like stir anything up or bring anything up that is going to be like a thing.”
The two did not appear to interact at the gala, though both looked stunning.
