From Rapunzel-length mermaid waves to pastel graphic liner, it’s tough to name a beauty trend that Gigi Hadid hasn’t helped influence. The supermodel’s voluminous bombshell blowout at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival is certainly no exception. I, for one, will be recreating the look all summer long.
The Guest in Residence founder showed off the show-stopping side-part style created by celebrity hairstylist Dimitris Giannetos, at the red-carpet premiere of Firebrand (Le Jeu De La Reine) on May 20. She completed the look with soft glam courtesy of celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta. The end result was one you might expect: Hadid looked like an IRL Barbie.
As for the rest of Hadid’s ensemble? Kai’s mom wore a custom Jean Paul Gaultier fishtail gown inspired by a vintage design that her sister Bella Hadid wore to Paris Fashion Week 2018, taking the whole “sisters sharing clothing” trope to a whole other level.
Hadid completed the gown with statement jewelry by Messika — the designer’s Roaring Diamonds necklace and bracelet from Paris es Tune Fête collection, Illusionnistes ear clip, Glam’Azone ring, Gloria double ring, and a pink and yellow diamond stone Toi&Moi heart-shaped ring — and sparkled her way down the red carpet.
But let’s get back to Gigi’s bombshell hair. Not only does it make quite the serious case for the side part, but it’s embracing three trends in one: The heavy side part, Old Hollywood waves, and the ’90s supermodel blowout. Hadid’s Cannes hair is pretty much the blueprint for summer 2023 hair goals, and despite looking complicated, it’s shockingly easy to DIY.
