Look, don’t start with us. If we were lazier sorts, we could literally run a HADID WATCH post every day of the week. We try to restrain ourselves to discussing only the truly notable looks, but we’ve got to give these attention-seeking gals credit: they routinely step out in discussable fashion. They’re rarely dull, but also just as rarely chic. We’d rate their sidewalk sashay work somewhere at the midpoint on a scale with Kim Kardashian at one end and Taylor Swift at the other.

Not being in possession of boobs, we can’t help but look at this and wonder what it feels like to have one strip of skin exposed to cold weather like that. Similarly, we can’t imagine wearing laceup boots that leave the entire top of your foot exposed to the elements. But because we are fashion queens, there’s one thing about this look we DO understand: Sometimes, you’ve gotta work through the pain to be fabulous.
Of course, this is only about 75% fabulous, from where we’re sitting. The top and the jacket are kind of great, but the length of those pants is awkward as hell. We admit, the boots have some interest, but they don’t go with the rest of the look. You don’t wear patent leather footwear with matte leather pants.
Meanwhile, Gigi is fighting off an aggressive sweater dress:

We realize if this had conventional lines and seams, it would be too standard for her to wear, most likely. We don’t dislike the intentionally askew aspect of the design, but we can’t imagine it’s not irritating in a getting-out-of-the-car situation. Still, her accessories game really elevates the look. We’re not sure we’d have looked at this frock and said “You need white cateye shades and white booties,” but we’re glad someone else did.
