Bella Hadid rocked the Chanel runway for the Métiers d’Art 2015/2016 show in Rome Tuesday. She made her debut for legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld at the Cinecittà film studios. The 19-year-old transformed into a Gothic goddess for Lagerfeld’s traveling presentation.
The younger sister of Gigi rocked two of the famed French house’s covetable looks. Bella gave Brigitte Bardot vibes in her bouffant and her dramatic make-up for the night, which was gothic glam -- smoky eyes and understated lips.
She sashayed down the runway in sheer fishnet tights and a black leather mini dress. It featured a black leather skirt and a black and white ruffled top. A long black coat hung over her shoulders like a cape as she walked the catwalk. The model paired her ensemble with black and white slingbacks.
Bella’s show stopping look was a black lace gown. It featured a velvet slip, long sheer sleeves and a bow detailing just below the neck. She styled her outfit with pumps encrusted with Chanel signature pearls, large silver hoops and bangles on both wrists.
The teen was joined on the runway with none other than Chanel favorite Lara Stone. The 31-year-old looked stunning in two impeccably put-together ensembles. Lagerfeld’s latest designs are in his signature monochrome with lots of lace, velvet and leather.
Bella was thrilled with how the show went and took to Instagram to express her happiness. “What a dream to walk my first @chanelofficial show in Rome today..thank you @karllagerfeld @aurelieduclos @annemarieleonie @imgmodels for making my dreams come true I am as happy as can be,” she captioned a catwalk photograph of her first look.
Popularly known as the showman, the legendary German fashion designer recreated a street inside the venue, complete with Metro station, boulangerie and a cinema. Lagerfeld’s favorites Kristen Stewart and Rooney Mara sat front row. The short film titled “Once and Forever” premiered on the show which starts Stewart and was shot by Lagerfeld.
Stewart plays a temperamental actress playing the role of Coco Chanel. The “Twilight” actress plays the role of an actress who is described as a “precious gem”, but she is a full-blown terror on set. The film is based on Coco Chanel.
