In her latest shoot for the September issue of Vogue Paris, Hailey Bieber took inspiration from Princess Diana and her legendary ’90s looks.
Hailey took to Instagram to thank the late princess stating, “all credit and inspo to the amazingly beautiful and iconically stylish Princess Diana who I’ve looked to for style inspiration for as long as I can remember. Thank you for leaving behind such an iconic fashion and style legacy.”
The photos show Hailey mimicking some of Princess D’s most famous paparazzi shots, like this one with her keys in her mouth while she digs in her purse:
By looking at pictures of Hailey’s streetwear style, it’s evident she does look up to Princess Diana with her boyish, baggy clothing. Not everyone can pull off the oversized blazer paired with a sweater, baseball cap, and cowboy boots, but they sure can.
Princess Diana is someone I admire when it comes to fashion, grace, and humanity, and Hailey Bieber is my ultimate style icon. I loved the shoot, but some Instagram users commented they were disappointed that Vogue would copy Princess Diana’s paparazzi shots, since that’s how she ultimately died. However, her pap shots showed her true sense of self — the biker shorts with baggy sweaters and sneakers — it was so candid and carefree, and totally not expected from a literal princess. And she rocked it, so why not show it off?
