If ever you find yourself craving some good old-fashioned early aughts glam, Bella Hadid's 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards beauty look will give you your fix. From her hair to her nails, the model gave post-millennium beauty her best shot on the red carpet Mon. night. All those trends you thought were embarrassing won't make you cringe anymore, rest assured.

Hadid was joined by the rest of her model crew, including Winnie Harlow, Ashley Graham, Emily Ratajkowski, and more, at the annual fashion industry awards held at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. By no surprise, the Hadids were among the best dressed of the night — Gigi in a layered ensemble by Louis Vuitton and Bella in a plunging sequined halter by Michael Kors.

The devil was in the detail when it came to the younger sibling's retro look, though. Not only was her sparkly dress a throwback in itself, but everything about her corresponding beauty channeled early-2000s glam.

Let's start with the hair. Slicked back into a mid-height ponytail, Hadid's poofy brunette curls created a frame of bouncy coils around her face (showcasing those 75-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings in the best possible way, obviously). Basically, this is the look you were going for when you were 13.

As for her makeup, she seemed to stick with her usual routine: a shimmery brown smoky eye, vivacious lashes, and a glossy mauve lip. But then, if you take a close look, she channeled yet another old-school trend on her fingernails.

The French manicure you couldn't wait to get when you were a kid is about to make a major comeback, people are saying. Retro Wite-Out tips are officially in again, according to Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Ariana Grande, and more. Hadid just gave the 00-themed nails her coveted stamp of approval.

Channel the model's throwback look with her easy-to-recreate slicked-back curly ponytail. A few hair products to help you achieve it, ahead.
