She appeared on the catwalk in underwear, after which specialists applied a special spray to her body
Bella Hadid donned a futuristic liquid cotton outfit for a Coperny fashion show. It was held at the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Paris as part of Fashion Week in the French capital.
Bella Hadid appeared on the catwalk in underwear, after which specialists applied a special spray to her body. The team, led by Spanish chemist and fashion designer Manel Torres, was able to create a minimalist, futuristic dress on Bella’s body.
Man’s technology and ideas are changing every day, reaching frightening and impressive levels. Further proof came from Paris Fashion Week, where a dress was made literally on the catwalk in front of everyone.
The case is from the gorge of Coperni, and the main actor was Bella Hadid. The model arrived at the show in only her underwear, hiding her breasts with one hand. And while some thought it was some kind of prank, Bella stood in the middle of the podium, then was approached by three men with paint guns in their hands.
The magic began to happen before the eyes of everyone present as Hadid was gradually covered in white paint that turned into a beautiful dress. Things got even more impressive when the outfit even came with a dropped shoulder, mimicking a real garment. The length of the dress was also well measured, with one part reaching below the knee and the other being shorter.
The culprit behind the futuristic dress is the chemist and fashion designer Manel Torres, who is also the inventor of the spray. The formula is composed of special cotton and synthetic fibers, and after application on the body it becomes a pleasant material that can be easily worn. The designers designed the model with dropped shoulders and a deep slit above the knee. Bella Hadid paraded down the catwalk, presenting the outfit in jersey-like fabric with a delicate texture reminiscent of small drops of water.
“We wanted to dedicate this moment to Dr. Torres because we have so much respect for what he does. We felt it was absolutely imperative that he host the show, because that made it even more magical,” Coperni co-founder Arnaud Vallon told Vogue.
The brand is known for its DIY method, which was also shown earlier in the year. Then the glass bags appeared in the center of attention, which stars like Doja Cat also wore on the red carpet. Coperni is probably best known for its Swipe handbag, with each accessory having an interesting creative process behind it. According to designers Breanna Box and Peter Dupont, the bag was made using an air hose.
As for Bella Hadid, she has proven once again that she is unique in her field and can conquer anything, including the anxiety and nervousness she has been experiencing lately.
In May, the model spoke candidly to Interview magazine about how she used to feel huge pressure before attending the annual Met Gala, but is now enjoying the experience.
Her look for this year’s fashion event was by Burberry’s Riccardo Tichy, but was created with the help of Hadid herself. It’s understood the model made a 25-page presentation about what she wanted to show at the Met Gala, narrowing down the period of fashion inspiration from 1895 to 1903.
“I really love the ties, voluminous fabrics, tulle and corsets, but at the same time I wanted the design to stay within Ricardo’s style – very simple but chic,” says Hadid. The result was a glamorous appearance in a sexy black dress featuring a leather corset, fishnet evening gloves and a high slit that revealed sheer lace tights.
As for the next Met Gala theme, the designs will have to be nods to the late designer Karl Lagerfeld’s style. The event will be titled “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” and will feature designs made by the designer for Balmain, Patou, Chloe, Fendi, Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld.
