Hailey Baldwin had the odds stacked against her. She met and fell in love with one of the world’s most famous popstars, who, at the time, was sleeping around and still in and out of a fling with one of the world’s other most famous popstars (Selena Gomez). But fast forward a few years and Justin Bieber was on his knees asking her to marry him.
The same thing happened with her career. Told she was too short to be a model, Baldwin once admitted she felt inferior to her friends, supermodels Kendall Jenner and Gigi and Bella Hadid. But she persisted, becoming a fashion darling with her unique sense of street style, hitting the runway for the likes of Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, Dolce & Gabbana and Off White, and to top it all off, landing her first Vogue Paris cover earlier this year.
Instead of being smug and OTT about her wins, Baldwin prefers to live a quiet life with her husband at their home in LA, going out for date nights every so often, for which she uses the opportunity to show off her understated style.
Over the weekend, the couple were spotted going for dinner at popular West Hollywood hotspot, Craig’s. For the occasion, Baldwin wore a completely nude look, consisting of an oversized leather blazer from Frankie Shop with a nude-colored slip dress underneath.
Per her Instagram Stories, Baldwin wore no makeup except lip gloss and wore her hair ’90s-inspired in a half-up-half-down do. She accessorised with a Bottega Veneta pouch in a similar shade and nude strappy heels.
Recently, Bieber opened up about his relationship with his wife, saying, “We’re just creating these moments for us as a couple, as a family, that we’re building these memories. And it’s beautiful that we have that to look forward to. Before, I didn’t have that to look forward to in my life.”
“My home life was unstable. Like, my home life was not existing. I didn’t have a significant other,” he continued. “I didn’t have someone to love. I didn’t have someone to pour into. But now I have that.”
Would you look at that, all it took was for Hailey Baldwin to join the Biebers to turn me into a Belieber.
