If there’s one celebrity who is flying the flag of all things Y2K, it’s Bella Hadid. The supermodel has always been at the forefront of throwback style movements, popularising trends from the ’90s and early 2000s. Think her early aughts-inspired handkerchief dress, paired with a rhinestone butterfly arm tattoo, and the vintage Versace gown at this year’s Cannes from the label’s Fall 2001 collection.

But Hadid’s recent Hamptons outing had her sport another mainstay of the 2000s: the denim-on-denim look.

The supermodel took a page out of Britney Spears’ style book and wore a lightwash denim corset and medium-wash denim micro mini from Fanci Club. She paired it with knee high white socks and white loafers, along with a pearl necklace from Arms of Eve. An oversized black floral pin on the bodice completed the whole look.

The best part about the look is that it has been made using deadstock materials. The Vietnam-based brand Fanci Club has made a name for themselves for their sustainable, upcycled fashion that presents classic silhouettes with a Y2K twist. For the same event, Hadid had worn a sheer black co-ord set by the same label before changing into the denim-on-denim Y2K dream outfit.

Founded by designer Duy Tran in 2020, the brand is already a favourite of ‘It Girls’ like Hailey Bieber, Olivia Rodrigo, Blackpink’s Jennie and Rosé. Reportedly, fans have already started reaching out to the brand for details on the corset, making it a small win for sustainable fashion this week!
