On the one hand, Gigi Hadid's taste in clothing skews heavily athleisure. There are approximately two billion paparazzi photos on the internet featuring the model in some combination of sweatpants and a long sweater. On the other, Hadid really knows how to rock a choker and corset — a counterbalance, perhaps, to all that #SwaddlingStyle.
Case in point: her appearance on the Tonight Show on Monday night, to which she wore a striped Rubin Singer corset, Adam Lippes trousers, Stuart Weitzman heels, and a Fallon choker. (The brand created by Dana Lorenz, that is. Jimmy Fallon has not taken up jewelry design.) The effect is sort of like if Beetlejuice were a cabaret singer who suddenly came into a vast fortune left behind by an enigmatic relative and quit the business to become a talent agent.
It's a good look, is what we're saying. Not a particularly comfortable look — least of all if you're going to tuck into a burger, like Hadid and Fallon did during their interview — but a good look nonetheless.
