Business in the front! Party in the back! Tonight on the Met Gala 2019 red carpet, Hailey Bieber arrived in what at first glance appeared to be a pared-back look by Alexander Wang. The model sported a modest turtleneck dress, strappy heels, and a high pony fastened with a black bow. As for the backside? Well, Bieber’s dress ventured into far saucier territory. It featured a low-cut back that dipped to reveal a matching pink, ultra-high thong with a bedazzled logo reading “Wang.”
While her look was certainly daring, Bieber is far from the first person to hit the red carpet in a G-string. In 2017, for the “Rei Kawakubo/Commes des Gar?ons: Art of the In-Between” Met Gala, Kendall Jenner donned a sheer La Perla couture gown that revealed a simple black thong that crept far above the hipbones. In 1998, Rose McGowan wore a naked dress to the MTV VMAs alongside Marilyn Manson that showed off underwear so thin it was comparable to floss. As for Bieber’s choice? Paired with her classic dress, whale tale has never looked so elevated.
