Bella Hadid's Take on a Basic White T-Shirt Dress Is Almost Completely Backless

This time when fashion editors say Bella Hadid is turning the Cannes Film Festival into her runway, they have real evidence. Strutting out of the Hotel Martinez on Thursday, May 23, the model wore a white, backless Jacquemus T-shirt dress that's set for its official release on the catwalk next month.

The piece is fitted and minimally detailed in the front, with a high neckline and fluted hem. Around the back, the fabric stretches and drapes over Hadid's left shoulder, revealing a cutout the length of her entire spine. (A classic T-shirt dress, but make it fashion.)

Designer Simon Porte Jacquemus confirmed on the brand's Instagram that Hadid's look, styled by Molly Dickson, is headed to a runway after its stint in the model's suitcase. "So happy @bellahadid wearing a preview of our next show <<LA CASA>>," he wrote. The pieces, he went on, come from a 15-year anniversary show slated for June 10 in Capri, Italy.

Reading between the lines, her exact dress isn't available to shop yet. Her accessories, however, are both renditions of Jacquemus strappy sandals and bag silhouettes that the house re-releases in fresh colors each season.

All-white looks radiating French Riviera glamour have been a favorite for celebrities dashing between shows this week. Selena Gomez touched down at Cannes with a preppier take on the look, wearing a white peplum dress by Self-Portrait with Roger Vivier slingback heels. Anya Taylor-Joy also got her wedding white fix from Jacquemus, in a semi-sheer dress and gigantic sunhat from the French designer.

Hadid didn't stay in the easy-breezy piece for long. Hours later, she changed into a sequined black evening gown with a coordinating shawl to walk the red carpet for L'Amour Ouf. Dickson revealed on Instagram that the dress came from Versace's Spring 2001 collection.

Hadid's Cannes Film Festival wardrobe has ranged from flirty vintage dresses (like the Alaïa mini she arrived in) to shocking naked looks (like her Saint Lauren panty hose gown) to pieces with personal significance (like the keffiyeh sundress she wore earlier on Thursday). Of the bunch, her white Jacquemus dress is a refreshing combination of everyday approachable and playfully revealing.
