Gigi Hadid Wore Bangs On The Prada Runway & Looked So Different

Share

Since her rise to model stardom, fans have grown accustomed to Gigi Hadid's definitive look. Although she's always on the pulse of the latest clothing trends just as they catch on, her long, golden waves have remained the same throughout her time in the spotlight. So when Gigi Hadid walked the Prada runway with bangs, you could say I was a little caught off guard.

As she sauntered down the runway in Milan on Sun., the 23-year-old model debuted an unexpected hairstyle: short, wispy bangs. The piecey fringe was the perfect match for her deliberately pulled-apart ponytail, which, from the front, gave off the illusion of a pixie. While a bold change like this would certainly be welcomed by loyal Hadid fans, the model's hair change appears to have been only temporary.

The edgy chop added to the overall aesthetic of the model's Prada ensemble, which consisted of a black bustier layered on top of an embroidered shirt dress. Hadid's waist was cinched with a black belt to add some shape to the oversized frock that sat just below her knees. The iconic fashion label adorned Hadid with industrial-looking accessories, including a pair of super-chunky loafers and a chain-strapped bag.

Despite the fact that Hadid's bangs were a one-time thing, the tousled style still felt drastic. The model's go-to hair looks include middle-parted beach waves, slicked-back buns, volume-infused ponytails, and more. Though short lived, Hadid's edgier cut makes a great addition to her ever-expanding lineup of stunning styles.

Even if you have no plans to walk a Prada runway any time soon, bangs are a great way to add some diversity and depth to your tried-and-true look. Take note from Hadid and try out messy-looking fringe, channel your inner Mila Kunis with a blunt style, or give your curls new life with Yara Shahidi's take on the trend.
