Bella Hadid Gracefully Avoided a Major Wardrobe Malfunction on the Catwalk

In some ways, the model was all of us in a wrap dress.

We've all been there—that feeling when you're wearing a wrap dress that you might expose a little more than you wanted. So while Bella Hadid's turn on the Alexandre Vauthier couture catwalk isn't an experience many of us can relate to, her wardrobe struggle is.

The model wore a floor-length bejeweled gown with a plunging neckline and a deep split. It looked sensational, but the cut of the gown meant that Hadid spent the duration of the catwalk grappling with the top of the split so that she wouldn't flash the front row (and indeed anyone looking at pictures of the show in future).

Fortunately, she managed not to expose herself and clearly bore no ill feelings to the designer, sharing an Instagram picture of herself in the dress.

It was a show full of bold outfit choices for the 20-year-old, who also modeled a completely sheer top.
